Make A Wish - Scrapbook Layout using Kaisercraft 'Oh Happy Day'

Hello, Rebecca back with you with another 12x12 layout created using the 'Oh Happy Day' Collection by Kaisercraft.

For the background of this layout I have used one of the plain bazzill cardstock sheets from the Matchmaker Pack, bordered on two edges at an angle with the '100s and 1000s' patterned paper. I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone a little this year and trying to use more coloured and patterned papers for my backgrounds instead of my usual white.

I hand drew a cake on white card and cut it out to make my own cut file - I don't have a fancy cutting machine... can you tell?! I then used three of the patterned papers to back my 'cut file' (Party PopperYay and Bright Bursts).

I fussy cut three of the candles from the Party Popper patterned paper to sit on top of the cake and popped these up on foam dots to add dimension.

I mounted my photo on the coral side of the Garlands patterned paper as the coral colour is featured in the papers used for the cake, so it added some of this colour to the opposite side of the layout. I cut a couple of the 'cut apart' cards from the Bright Bursts patterned paper and used them to fill the space on the right hand side of the page. I mounted one on white card to co-ordinate with the cake 'cut file' and the other, I drew around using my Uniball Signo white pen to help it stand out a bit more.

I fussy cut a couple of the gardlands from the Garlands patterned paper and added them to the top right hand corner of the layout.

I added some star shaped acrylic perspectives from my stash, but felt like the layout needed some more gold to tie in with the foil on the patterned papers. I used gold embossing powder on a piece of scrap card and then punched some tiny stars out and added them along the angled edges of the background cardstock to finish.

I hope you've enjoyed this layout. I'll be back next month with a couple more layouts, but in the meantime please check out this collection in the shop.

Take care,
