This month we have been inspired by these images. I love birthdays! Cake, cupcakes, presents, balloons and fun!
I was inspired not only in color, the reds in the candle background, the cream of the icings and the blue of the tablecloth, but also by the theme of a birthday.
gcd studios Independence collection,
a Pink Paislee 6x6 album, prima flowers and letters from cosmo cricket and colorbok, some color misted doilies, ek punches and lots of fussy cut pieces cut from the Independence flocked floral paper.
For each page, I made a single monthly calendar, and will circle the dates of birthdays in that month. I made my calendar with a publishing program on my computer.
Each page also includes a pocket to hold cards, and I am thinking I will stick a note in each pocket for names of who needs birthday cards that month.
I simply added patterned paper to each chipboard 6x6 page, then added another piece of scallop punched paper for my pocket. I then added decorations, and my calendar page.
Each page is decorated individually, and of course, I haven't taken the time yet to personalize my album, but once I get it done, I can be organized for a whole year's worth of birthdays in just a few moments. You could also add anniversaries, teacher cards, and friendship cards to this as well.
