Hello Queen & Co friends, Kim here.
Welcome to the Queen & Company blog. Today I am excited to share my latest layout with you. Inspired by the FABULOUS Pretty Presents kit, I decided to capture the happy moment of my little friend Callan getting ready to blow the candles out on her birthday cake. These dies, papers & toppers were tailor made for this page.
Hip-hip Hooray layout by Kim Watson
Using my Silhouette Cameo, I die-cut a pie chart, reason being is I wanted to use a pretty variety of patterned papers from the Pretty Presents 6x6 paper pad. The pie chart allowed me to use eight different pattern papers...the perfect way to create a colorful mat for my photo.
The sweet gift dies made the perfect accents for this page. To make them less busy on an already busy page, I made sure to make them mono tone in color: Pink, yellow, orange & green. To create the 'open me tag' I trimmed down one of the larger stamps.
The title is made up of a combination of three of the stamps that came in the Pretty Presents kit. By stamping them in different colors onto flag shapes, then attaching them to a striped drinking straw, I not only made a fun unique title but also a festive page accent.
Patterned paper circles folded in half and placed along the top of the page with turquoise bakers twine, not onto adds a ceiling to the page but really gives one the feeling of a celebration!
To make the page extra special I selected a mixture of pretty bling bits to co-ordinate with the patterned papers in each segment. The result is super fun, colorful & festive....Callan can't wait to have her page, in a frame, in her bedroom.
