All of the projects I have posted are created with Simple Stories' "Happy Day" collection.  I used this fabulous kit to get caught up on some of my girls' birthday photos from this year and last...





A couple of pages from my girls' 8th birthday:

Birthday Party Fun
I used some of the little dot stickers from the kit to make hole reinforcers for my tag-banners.  I also used some of the larger ones topped with rhinestones to connect my banner.

Birthday Cake
I used a scalloped circle punch to make 'bites' out of the sides of the page.


A couple of pages from their 9th birthday this year:

Wish
I used a half inch circle punch to take a notch out of the top and bottom edges of this page. I love punching shapes out of my pages, I don't know why....


Nine Years


So many quick and cute card options! Both of my cards came together in just minutes:

It's Your Day!

Happy Happy Birthday

Cutting the notches out of the page layout is so cute. It adds so much charm, especially the scallop one that kind of looks like a little monster took a bite out of the page. Very cute and very original
