Thank Goodness It’s Friday, my friends!
I don’t know what this weekend holds but I know it will be good.
Today I am showing you the layout for Tim’s 18th birthday. It is sweet. As in cupcake sweet. I found part of the layout idea on Pinterest and as always I made it my own.
I made the cupcake first. I used the purple polka dot cardstock to make the base of the cupcake. I used purple to match his shirt. I then used the opposite side that wasn’t polka dot to punch out the circle for the 18. I then punched the scalloped circle out of white cardstock. I attached the two together and used silver number stickers for the 18. To make the top of the cupcake I took different sizes of washi tape and traced part of their inside cardboard circles to create the curvy icing area. I attached the top of the cupcake to the bottom and then attached the whole thing to a piece of light gray cardstock. I didn’t think the contrast between the top of the cupcake and the cardstock was enough to make the cupcake show up very well. I decided to use glitter glue and go around the edge of the cupcake. Then I decided to get really creative with the glitter glue and made swirls on the cupcake. When the glitter glue dried I added silver enamel dots to the end of the swirls. Finally, I made the cherry out of red sequins. I love it! Wasn’t sure how it was going to turn out but I think it is great.
I then matted both pics onto purple cardstock and trimmed it with a scallop blade. I then matted them together (onto one solid piece of brown cardstock). I attached the matted pics on the page and added stickers. Perfect!
God bless! Have a wonderful weekend!
