To create this layout you’ll need:

Check out the whole Party Time! collection in the video below!

Step 1: Use a piece of White Solid Cardstock or a White Refill Page as the base for this layout.

Step 2: Cut a 1/2″ x 12″ strip of green striped paper and adhere to the right edge of the layout. Cut a 4-1/2″ x 12″ yellow chevron paper and adhere next to the green striped piece.

Step 3: Mat a 6″ x 4″ photo with a 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ piece of green triangles paper. Crop a photo to measure 4″ x 3″ and another to measure 4″ x 4″. Cut a piece of white “confetti” dots paper to measure 4″ x 3″ and a strip of the candles paper to measure 4″ x 3/4″. Adhere all to the layout as shown.

Step 4: Cut a 4″ x 5″ piece of each red party icons, bold multi-hued polka dots and purple stars papers. Mark the middle (2″) of the top 4″ side. Trim from the mark to one corner and then from the mark to the other corner to create a triangular party hat as shown.

Step 5: Using the outside of the Jumbo Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern and the Red Blade, cut a curved edge at the bottom of the party hat. Repeat these steps to create the other two party hats. Punch several balloons using the Double Balloon Punch from scraps of papers. Adhere rounded sides to the bottom of each party hat as shown.

Step 6: Using the inside of the smallest Circle Custom Cutting System Pattern and the Green Blade, cut a circle with each yellow chevron, purple stars and red party icons papers. Snip small notches all the way around each circle using the Micro-Tip Scissors to create pompons. Adhere to the top of each hat. Mount all hats on the layout as shown.

Step 7: Add stickers and journal as desired.
