Today I am sharing a birthday-themed 12×12 scrapbook page and a coordinating birthday card with you.

Products I used… See below for a complete list of extra products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements for the page…

  • Basic White Cardstock 
    • 12″ x 12″
  • Poppy Parade Cardstock 
    • Three pieces that are 3-5/8″ x 5-1/8″
    • 4-1/8″ x 5-5/8″
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock
    • Three pieces that are 3-1/2″ x 5″
    • 4″ x 5-1/2″

Directions for the page… 

  • Layer together all the photo mat pieces. Attach the three on the left, but just use the other as a guide for a bit before attaching.
  • Position that layered photo mat piece, and add the banners so that the orange and yellow sections are outside the border of the page. (To space evenly, add the outer two first. Then add the middle loosely. Add the other two shifting the middle if needed.
  • Now place the large butterfly upside-down in the lower right section of the page, pull the large layered photo mat piece away, and use Blending Brushes to apply color in and around this “butterfly stencil.” Start with Fresh Freesia. And finish with a bit of Blackberry Bliss through the middle.
  • Pull the “butterfly stencil” away and adhere that large layered photo mat piece.
  • Use the dauber to add Poppy Parade ink on the outer edges of the medium size butterfly piece.

  • Then add this butterfly and a small purple one with the help of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Stamp the title piece onto the back side of one of the blue “hope” labels from the kit. (I used the back side of one that was in German or French.) Add this to the top right of the page with Dimensionals from the kit.
  • Color a few Rhinestones with the Dark Poppy Parade Marker. Allow to dry.
  • Then add the sequins from the kit, some of these red rhinestones, and (with the help of Multipurpose Liquid Glue) a couple Flower Flourishes.
  • Your page is now ready for photos!

Directions for the card… 

  • Use the large butterfly from the kit as a stencil again. (Be sure to use it in the upside-down position. This way by maintaining the original coloring on the front, you can still opt to use the butterfly as intended or in some other way.) Use Blending Brushes and apply Fresh Freesia ink first. Then add a bit of Blackberry Bliss ink through the middle.
  • Open up the card, run it through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Layering Circle Die to cut a window.
  • Stamp the sentiment through the window. Open the card and stamp the other sentiment below.
  • Color a couple small Rhinestones with the Dark Bermuda Bay Blends Marker. Allow them to dry. 
  • Add three small butterflies to the inside of the card and the Flower Flourishes in and around the window area of the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Then add the two small blue Rhinestones.
