Birthday Memories + Giveaway!

March Featured Product:  Chipboard Laser Die Cuts
Today's project features the Cupcake Bag o' Chips!


Suzanne here with a layout to share.  I used the new Tin Type collection, along with our featured chipboard laser die cuts!
As the layout says, I can't believe my baby brother is 20! Ah! That means I turn 30 next month, but I digress. :)

I used the Cupcake "Bag o' Chips" laser diecuts to bring in the birthday theme. These are SO versatile because you can ink them, paint them, emboss them, cover them with paper.. the possibilities are endless! I used the Baja Blue and  Mango Mai Tai Powderpuff Chalk Inks to color them. The balloon is popped up on pop dots and the candle flame is glittered for added detail.

I inked the cupcake with the same Baja Blue ink, as well as the Mocha Moma Powderpuff Chalk Inks. The top piece is popped up for dimension.  I layered the cupcake laser die cut at the bottom on an orange circle from the Tin Type collection, also inked in Baja Blue Powderpuff Chalk Ink

I added the "Best Traditions" vellum quote strip to the top left corner of my layout. I cut the bottom edge with a ribbon "V" and I inked the edges with the Baja Blue Powderpuff Chalk Ink (love how I can coordinate my whole layout with these chalk inks!!) It was a perfect sentiment for our birthday dinner tradition. Pictured are myself, brother and grandmother :)

"Birthday Dinner" Quick Quotes supplies:

Other supplies:
Fiskars "Threading Water" border punch
American Crafts Mustard "Typo" Thickers
Cosmo Cricket Brown "Tiny Type" Alphas

Cute! I'm personally a sucker for gears and clocks and such these days. And I'm suddenly in a butterfly mood. :)

I am definitely in love with the cupcake die cut set--My wish list is die cuts for Easter Eggs and Bunnies that can be used :-)

Sue said...

Such a wonderful page Suzanne. You have inspired me to check out my collection of chipboard die cuts. I think my favorite are butterflies and flowers. Oh, and hearts.

Dorina D said...

Great page and I love the Traditions quote. The cupacake and ballons are cute, but I love rings, gears,circles, unusual shapes and doilley designs the most right now. Thanks for sharing.

Really great LO! My favorite die cuts are at opposite ends of the creative spectrum: lacy, swirly and grungy gears & clocks! Does that mean I cannot decide on my personal style or I just like to keep everyone guessing?

Me-Ma Kim said...

LOVE the layout, Suzanne! I would LOVE to have ANY of your laser die cuts. I love swirly's, lacy and gears! THANKS BUNCHES for the chance! Have a GREAT Day,

Great page! I love the bird diecuts you featured yesterday. The diecuts I like best are flourishes that I can use on any layout that I need something extra for.

Vicki said...

Wonderful layout. Love the colors. I too like gears.

I like chic & shabby cuts and would love to see more hard to find cuts like a fairy or the sewing torso.

Amy E said...

What a cute layout!!! I love how you used the die cuts!!

I think clocks and gears would be a lot of fun to play around with!
