Throwback Thursday-Celebrations

Happy Friday! Wow, this week went by so fast. I'm so excited that my blog-lift is almost complete. I think I may be the only scrappin' blogger that doesn't have polka dots on my page, well I guess there's a few.

This week Emma, at My Creative Time
challenged us to use the Celebrations cartridge with a birthday theme. I would like to state that everything on these two pages are straight, and even...I know it doesn't look like it, but it's true. My type A personality is really struggling with the pattern on this paper and that it looks like everything is uneven! Aside from that this was a fun project and I tried some new techniques, which is always great.

PP-My Mind's Eye
Kraft cardstock-Bazzil
Flowers and Bling-Prima
Journal Tag-Anna Griffin
Twine and Ribbon-Papertrey Ink
Embossing Folder-Sissix, Tim Holtz-Gridlock

All of the cuts are from the Celebrations Cricut cartridge. I mixed some blue and teal glitter to get a color that matched the patterned paper I chose. I ran all the letters through my Xyron, upside down, and then glittered them. I added a layer of Glossy Accents over the glitter to keep it from flaking off. It does take a couple hours for the Glossy Accents to dry, but I think the effect is worth it. I strung some twine between each pennant to create a banner. The party hats are cut in 3 different sizes. I embossed my photo mats with the Tim Holtz texture fade Gridlock pattern. These are the some of the best embossing folders and create a really deep embossed pattern. I used my ribbon on the photo mats to create a photo corner and as an additional embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy my project!
