Birthday Celebration Scrapbook page. Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking Global September 2020 Blog Hop.

Yay it's my turn to pick the theme this month - It's spring in my part of the world and what does that mean to some? Loads of babies! - so loads of Birthdays, my immediate family has 3 birthdays this month and I just knew I would want to scrap at least one of them hence my choice. 

Marvel Scrapbook page and Album

My big girl - now a beautiful young lady I am very proud of turned 21 - I know where did the time go. We had a couple of small gatherings
 essentially turning it into a birthday party week rather than a large group in one hit. It definitely made it easier for my fridge to cope with the party food.

We had a 21 & MARVELous party - you may have seen some of the photos I have shared on another post (I will link it below), well I think this would have to be a record for a birthday scrap page for me - Scrapped within the next month never normally happens here!

I followed my party theme with bright fun colours red, blue, green and yellow known as Poppy Parade, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Daffodil Delight in the Stampin' Up! world to bring this page and my album to life.

The DSP I have used is called Artistry Blooms and is featured as part of the Artistry Blooms Suite on pages 130-132 of the South Pacific Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I needed something with stars or the like so I used Pattern Play to essentially make my own DSP - the Stamparatus was very handy with it's hinge step to help keep my all lined up. The other 2 stamp sets I used are Happiest of Birthdays and Ridiculously Awesome. All 3 are featured in the 20-21 Annual Catalogue.

I have created a PDF of the images I cut out for my Boom Wow and Pow if you would like to convert them for your machine and use them on your electronic cutting machine. Don't have one that's cool print them in pale grey and pull out your snips - I don't know about you but I do find fussy cutting therapeutic at times.

Now onto the Album I have also made.

Marvelous Album Front

The video below shows you the 8 X 8 album I have also made - would you believe I have used the Magic in the Night DSP (yep Halloween) for this as I loved the black and white patterns on this paper. We took heaps of photos as you can imagine so I am sure I see some Memories & More pages in my future as well. 

Wow that was a big post but I hope you enjoyed seeing my Celebration projects. Now please hop on over to see what Shel has to share with us.
