November is my birthday month, so I thought that I would start out the month by sharing two birthday layouts that I created recently. The first one I made using an older Studio Calico kit, Paper Moon. I had never made the folded pleat flowers before and I LOVE THEM! I went out the next day and bought the Martha Stewart scoring board, which I didn't know that I needed until I discovered these flowers. Honestly, I had to watch a video on how to make them several times before I could figure them out, but now that I have the technique down, I will be making them often.
For this next layout, I used the most recent Studio Calico kit, Field Guide. I used lots of blue and yellow on this layout to match the shirt that I was wearing that was blue and yellow and a big '9' on it.
I did some sewing and stamping on this layout and I used my Slice for the 'happy birthday' and the '9.'
I never use original photos on layouts if they can not be replaced. I scan the originals and print them out, which I did for both of these layouts. I have a super cheap scanner and I have to say that the scans come out great, so I'm happy about that.
Have a great November everyone!
