Echo Park ~ Magical Birthday Boy #2

 Hi all, it’s Anna here, happy Friday! The days are getting longer and the sun is starting to shine, phew! It’s been a long winter, but scrapbooking has certainly helped me through it! 

With my DT kit this month I have been playing with the Echo Park Magical Birthday Boy collection, you can find the collection in the shop here

Today I’m going to share two layouts with you. But first, here are some direct links to the supplies that I have used for these pages. 

Birthday Fun, Make a WishBazzill Matchmaker Pack (cardstock), Let’s Party, Tags, Element Stickers, Stix2 3D foam pads , Thickers, Nuvo Drops, Bazzill cardstock scraps, twine, doodlebug alphas

For my first layout I used the red bazzill cardstock from the matchmaker pack as my base. I then used a Paige Evans floral Mickey cut file as the main feature on my layout. This took a long time to back! I used a selection of scraps of different coloured coordinating cardstock. The collection doesn’t feature any pink, purple or dark blue, but I wanted to incorporate these colours to match my photo. So I used these colours in my cutfile to make it work. I also used some vellum and glitter cardstock, as well as patterned papers from the collection to back the cutfile. I added some Nuvo drops around the edges of the flowers. I placed this to the left of my layout and trimmed off the edge. 

I had a few photos of my 30th birthday cake that I wanted to include, it was Disney themed and decorated beautifully, with lots of little details. But to add them all on the page itself would’ve been far too much, as the cutfile is really quite busy. So I made a mini book, which just tucks in behind the main photograph - I used some 3D foam pads behind the main photo to create a space for the mini book to slot in. I made this by trimming a strip of Let’s Party paper and scoring two measured equal sections wide enough for my photos. This also allowed me to add in some journaling. 

To the left of my layout I added just a few of the element stickers and that’s all that was really needed. 

Moving on to my second layout for today...

I used the blue cardstock from the matchmaker pack for my base. For this layout I used some pictures from a Disney party that we had for my son’s 3rd birthday, this paper collection was perfect for this! 

I used a strip of Let’s Party patterned paper behind a large ‘Disney’ title. I used one of the tags from the ‘tags’ paper for a journaling spot. 

Something was missing at the top right hand corner so I ripped a tear at the top of the paper and backed it with the make a wish patterned paper, along with some element stickers. 

To finish, I added some more element stickers around the layout. 

Thanks so much for looking, I have one more layout to share with you using this collection, so I will be back with that soon! 
Have a great weekend!
