YAY! I received my goodies from CutCardStock and had fun making this fun & cute layout of my granddaughter and her first birthday! The sketch is from the Scrapbooking With AnnMarie site and it was super easy to put together.
The cardstock I used is listed below. If you place an order with CutCardStock, you can use my affiliate code which is embedded in this LINK. It doesn't change the price for you, but I get a small commission on it. How cool is that?
The colors I used coordinated so perfectly with the Magical Birthday collection from Echo Park. It's actually a pretty simple layout and I added some hand drawn bows, some splatter and sequins to pretty it up!
The bottom layer, Wedding Cake was gutted after I used the paper to cut the mat for Mickey ears.
I used my "L" ruler to make sure those strips lined up on the sides and also for photo placement.
