Girly Birthday Page
Design by Lisa VanderVeen
Sometimes you have only one photo to tell your story, so you'll want to showcase it. Blow it up and make it the star using a shaped photo mat. For a bit of whimsy, machine-stitch hand-cut circles of coordinating scraps on the background of your layout. Make pleated paper ribbon by trimming a 1x12" strip of double-sided patterned paper. Fold it randomly and adhere the strip below the photo.
SOURCES: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper. Patterned paper: Cosmo Cricket (green), My Mind's Eye (pink). Brads: BasicGrey, K&Company. Buttons: My Mind's Eye. Stickers: Sassafras. Punches: Fiskars, Martha Stewart Crafts.

Fairy Tale Birthday Pages
Design by Candi Gershon
A photo collage spread across Candi's two-page layout packs in the pictures and captures the magic of her daughter's birthday party. Embracing her daughter's Tinker Bell theme, Candi picked accents of a fairy and pixie dust to embellish her design.
