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.

Tim’s 18 (now almost 19)!

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!

  1. Good page. I like how you matted the two colors. The cupcake turned out good. A simple page,that tells the important event, Do you put a journal tag on your pages?

  2. Cute as a cupcake. Don’t tell Tim, he would be so embarrassed. An 18th birthday is the beginning of manhood. Lots of work on this page to show the celebration. Looking good. Everything turned out mauv-a-lous.

  3. Hey Terri,
    I try and journal on pages where I think I won’t remember. On some I don’t journal because there are pages that go with them that I journaled on already. I do encourage journaling because we don’t remember as much as we think that we will. Bummers of aging.
