Hello crafty friends! It’s Wei Wei with you today to share a bit of inspiration. I visited Taipei ZOO last month and had a photo with the big cake celebrating Taipei ZOO’s 106th! The March kit and add-ons were perfect for recording this exciting moment!
Supplies | March 2021 Kit, March 2021 Labels, Happy Birthday Journaling Tags, Happy Birthday Chipboard Stickers, Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers – Cool Tones, Happy Birthday Wood Veneers, Hooray Wood Veneer Banners, Large Acetate Numbers, Acrylic Balloons and Presents, Celebrate 6 x 8.5 inch Paper Stack, Make a Wish Stamp, Happy Birthday Metal Die, Parker Alphabet Metal Die, Hugs and Kisses Stamp
I started by adding a bit of pink watercolor to the background—just a soft application to two areas in the page. I really love the Make a Wish Stamp, so I used words and patterns to fill part of the background to add more texture.
I positioned my photo on the bottom right corner and layered it using the Happy Birthday Journaling Tags. I knew I needed more layers and embellishments because my background is soft and white. I tore patterns from the from Celebrate Paper Stack and wrinkled them to give more texture. I also tucked a piece of tissue paper between the papers to soften the layers.
My favorite part about creating this layout was building my title. There are not enough words to describe just how much I love the alpha products from Elle’s Studio! And I have to say that the Large Acetate Numbers and the Parker Alphabet Metal Die are AWESOME! I used them to create my title and I got the stitched look by using the Hugs and Kisses Stamp. It helps my title stand out on the background and gives it a little contrast and depth. I just love how it turned out.
I really had a lot of fun with the March kit and add-ons and I think the possibilities for the kit are endless! I hope this projects has inspired you to use the kit to create a project of your own. Happy creating!
