Kelly's Stamping Friends Birthday Blog Hop

Welcome to Kelly Kent's Birthday Blog Hop
We are all wishing Kelly Happy Birthday Wishes early for her Birthday tomorrow...
There are 24 of us here who have created something very special to celebrate Birthdays.
I am sure that you will all be AMAZED by the talent here today...

You are starting here with me....Shaz.
Kelly is probably expecting me to create a Scrapbooking Layout to celebrate her theme.
AND of course I DID do a layout... One with Cupcakes and Lollies
Birthday Wishes for my 1 year old Cousins daughter Hannah who I babysit every week.
OR you may have just joined me from Sandra Collett
blog, her project was COOL!!

I am using a variety of products from How Sweet It Is SUITE in the Occasions Catalogue.
I did start this layout last night at my scrapbooking classes BUT I hadn't
printed any of my photos yet!  AND OF COURSE I ran out of ink (hence the crappy photos)
That will teach me for leaving everything to the last minute...
AND I live 65klms from the nearest town, so no chance of racing out to the print them :(

Here is is how the layout started...I of course searched Pinterest for inspiration

 I would love to give credit for the inspiration BUT there was no name or link attached.Here is what I took from the above photo and gave it my lil tweak.

This is how the whole layout started...
It is funny how you can be inspired by a few lil sweet treats.

Using Sweetest Thing Stamp Set, How Sweet It is DSP, matching cardstock
the Ribbon and Sweet Pins and Tags to create this layout made it so easy.
Especially because it has Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies to cut out all the elements
from the designs on the DSP.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Happy Birthday down the side 
of the Coastal Cabana cardstock with Bermuda Bay Classic Stampin' Pad
using the hinged stamping technique.
Check out this Stampin' Up! video for all the wonderful things you can do with it

I used the ribbon behind the tag as well as under the words between the cupcakes
Stamped - Make it a SWEET celebration it with Melon Mambo Classic Stampin' Pad

I used the retired Large Number Framelits Dies to cut the 1 out of the DSP
Here is the completed layout....Sorry bout the crap photos.
See below for the real photos so I cannot wait to print them again tomorrow.

Up next is Denise Buetler, who I had the pleasure of meeting at OnStage in Auckland.
So lovely to meet someone whom I blog with on lots of different groups...
I cannot wait to see what Denise has designed.
