This Birthday Scrapbook Layout Serves Up Sweetness

When talking about birthdays, it’s hard to not bring up (or light up or slice up!) a totally delicious and sugary treat — the cake. While some of us prefer the classic chocolate or vanilla offerings, others may find tastes such as mocha, lemon, salted caramel, carrot, funfetti (and more!), irresistible. No matter your top-notch choice, the Party Time! collection will always be a sweet addition to your albums. How so? See for yourself down below as the Party Time! Variety Mat Pack has been served up as a delightful layered cake upon this birthday scrapbook layout.

To create this layout you will need:


Step 1: Use a blue “confetti” dots paper as the base for this layout. Cut a 2″ x 12″ strip of blue gingham paper and adhere to the left side of the layout.

Step 2: Cut three variety mats to 3″ x 2″ sections, using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade to cut the bottom edge of each. Round the corners of the top piece with the 2-Way Corner Rounder. Overlap and adhere these “cake layers,” as shown, to the left side of the layout. Cut a 3-3/4″ x 1/2″ piece of a kraft grid mat and tuck under the bottom layer of the “cake.”

Step 3: Mat a 6″ x 4″ photo with a 6-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ variety mat and adhere to the layout. Crop two photos to measure 3-1/4″ x 5″ and one photo to measure 3-1/2″ x 5″. Mat the latter on a 4″ x 5-1/2″ piece of a kraft grid mat, trimming the bottom of the mat using the 12-inch Trimmer with the Scallop Blade. Adhere photos to the layout.

Step 4: Add embellishments, popping some up with Foam Squares for added dimension.

Step 5: Journal as desired.
