Challenge - Scraplift a Pea: Our Cupcake
by Shannon Tidwell
Hi and welcome to my Weekly Challenge of Scraplifting a Pea! I love this challenge…it's a great excuse to take a long stroll through the Gallery. So many amazing layouts!! It was hard to choose something, but when I saw michellerose [twopeasinabucket.com]'s 'You (heart) Bubbles [twopeasinabucket.com]' layout I was immediately drawn to the circle banner across the top.
I knew this idea would work perfectly with the stack of birthday photos I have to scrap! I really love how Michelle layered in other sizes of circles and even confetti. I took a bit of that idea and decided to make banners out of different sized circles. I didn't add the confetti since my page already had so much going on, but I think I'll be doing another version soon!
For my layout I used BasicGrey's Paper Cottage papers primarily. The colors worked perfectly for my photo. I also added in some Crate Paper embellishments. For a fun little touch I used some leftover candles as an embellishment as well.
To create the banners I used my trusty circle punches. I got them all laid out on the page and then adhered them, and then stitched them. The stitching adds the perfect finishing touch!
Thanks so much Michelle for the inspiration!!
