Happy First Birthday Scarlett - CSI 269

It's some time since I took part in one of the CSI (Colour, Stories, Inspiration) scrapbooking challenges, but I thought I would give it a go this time. I wanted to create a page for Scarlett's album for her first birthday. The birthday theme fits with CSI's 7th birthday.

Scarlett Rose

 Here are the details for solving the challenge,   for more details please see the blog:


For my layout I used an old collection from Basic Grey - Fresh Cut, the colours were ideal for the scheme, and I'm pleased to have used some papers from my stash. I inked the edges with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink.

Instead of polka dots my main paper has a tear/rain drop design on it - Bluebell Boutique paper.
I used many papers from the collection to make two large rings and three two-layered squares. I cut these using the Cricut. Then using some Crafter's Companion dies I cut the balloons, bunting and the large number '1'.

I selected a white doily from my stash and some flat-backed self-adhesive pearls. My balloons were tied with Baker's Twine in several different colours. With a small square of paper from a Basic Grey paper pad (Basics) I cut a journalling panel and edged it with an EK Success notebook punch. I used some 3D double-sided foam pads to vary the height of the elements.

I added some words with tiny mint letter stickers from the Fresh Cut sticker sheet.

Thanks for looking.
