I have to say I am loving working with the Oh Happy Day collection and love the bright, cheery colours and the retro patterns on the papers which all have beautiful gold foiling. I have used it to make a multi photo layout documenting Gracia’s 18th birthday, which was 8 years ago!
For this layout I have used Snow Weave Kaisercard, Time to Party, Fire Cracker, Garlands and Star Light 12 x 12 papers, collectables, curios, sticker book , 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and Mounting Foam Dots.
I started by cutting .5 in from two adjacent sides of the Time to Party paper, which I then stuck to the Snow Weave Kaisercard. On top of this I added a piece of Fire Cracker which I had cut to 9ins square, finally to this I added a 8.5in square piece of Star Light.
I mounted my photographs onto some scraps of white card. I used four 2in x 3in photos and one 3in x 4in. These were added to the bottom of my paper with the bottom of the photo mounts lined up with the bottom of the Star Light paper. Next I fussy cut the ‘Happy Birthday’ penant from the Garlands paper and added to the bottom of my page with a Curio at the point where the two words meet. A border from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad was added above the three right hand photos.
I stuck the ‘Wishing You The Best Day Ever’ sticker to a scrap of card, along with the pennants (both were from the sticker book) and cut them out with a thin white border. These were added to the top of my page with a star, also from the sticker book to either side of the pennants.
I typed my journaling onto a word document and adhered a page from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad onto a piece of A4 card and fed this through my printer to get the text printed onto the blue paper.
Once I had cut my journaling into strips and added to my page. I subsequently realised I had ‘and Josh’ twice and have snipped off the second one. I added a cluster of phrases to the top right of my photos using collectables, a pop out from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and a ticket also cut from the paper pad, finishing off with a curio and star.
We would love to see what you have made with this collection and you can post your makes on the Merly Crop Facebook page.
