February Blog Hop

Glad you are along on today's Creative Life Scrapbooking blog hop!

Year after year, we take birthday pictures, and need to make birthday pages, so it's great that Creative Memories frequently introduces new celebration collections!  The newest collection is called Cake My Day, and I am loving the color combos and patterns.  They are useful beyond birthday pages.

I'd like to share with you a few original layouts I created with this collection. At the end, I will list links to the blogs of everyone in our group, so you can click through and be inspired!

This is actually a title page for an album, which I made with the Cake My Day collection. I don't do many one-photo pages!  But this was a great picture of my kids that I wanted to highlight on the first page.  The word "happy" was made using a thin metal die from Close to My Heart, cut using a Sizzix Big Shot.  The Argyle Border Punch made the vertical black border. 


Here's a bright and cheery birthday layout using Cake My Day paper and stickers (background cardstock is something I had on hand, not sure where it came from!)  I like how the black & white chevron/arrow sticker points to a favorite photo.  I left enough open/blank space on the layout to give the eyes a break; sometimes birthday pages are very busy.  


And one last page from the same birthday party.  Again, tried to keep the layout simple, as the papers are busy. 

That's it!  CM's great collections make color-coordination easy.  Now keep hopping....here's the list:
