Laura Rumble – Happy Birthday

Hey, Laura here today with a 12×12 layout using the Happy Birthday cut file by Paige Evans. You can purchase this pre-cut on white, cream or black cardstock. You can also have it cut to your size specification – just drop Lisa-Jane a message to discuss it.

I have backed my file with a fun green spot paper from Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Boy’s Rule collection. I’ve popped the file up on foam pads and I’m going for a diagonal design.

The rest of the supplies are Bella Blvd but I’m unsure of the collection. I have used three photos from my nephew’s 2nd birthday; two at the top of the layout and one at the base. I’m using larger chipboard embellishments at the bottom with the single photo and less smaller pieces up the top. This helps balance the page out ending up with 4 items at the top and 4 at the bottom.

I searched my mist colours for the best matches with the chipboard. I came up with three Shimmerz mists. I added plenty of slightly diluted splatters in aqua, blue and yellow. I always avoid red splatters as it can look a bit bloody. I bring the red in with enamel stars. I then finish up the layout with a generous sprinkling of enamel dots in green, aqua and yellow.

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
