Precious Moments – a Hey Birdie Layout

The fun and girly Hey Birdie Collection from Kaisercraft fitted perfectly with this picture of my daughter on her birthday so I got out my scissors and foam tape and created a layout to remind me of that special moment.

At the moment this photo was taken my daughters best friends had just showered her in streamers from party poppers and started singing to her making her smile in a beautifully reserved way. It was a special moment that I wanted to capture in a fun layout which somehow reflected her happiness on that sunny Summer day. Kaisercraft’s Hey Birdie Collection matched both the theme and the colour of the photo and gave the layout a bright and happy look.

Precious Moments - a Hey Birdie layout

I used Bazzill Tortilla cardstock (T8-824) as a background, added strips cut from the Hightail paper (P510) as a base for the picture and cut out and layered some of the cute coloured birds on the strip in the lower left corner of the page. Once the photo was stuck down I outlined it (above and on the right) with some of the Hey Birdie Brown Rub-ons (RB859). The trees, flowers and birds on either side of the photo are cut out from the Wing It paper (P508). The words in the bottom right corner and three of the butterflies in the top left corner are from the brown rub-ons while the fourth layered butterfly is cut from the Wing It paper.

The Precious Moments words are a ScrapFX chipboard wordlet (2008272) that I have coloured using a Kaisercraft Brown Ink Pad (IP708) and decorated with another cut out and layered flower from the Wing It paper.

Precious Moments - details

I’ve embellished the layout with Kaisercraft Hot Pink Pearls (SB787) on the flowers and the round tree and Crystal Lacquer on many of the layered birds, flowers and trees. I’ve finished the layout by sewing around the edge with matching pink thread and adding a single button detail to the bottom right corner.

I think the layout perfectly captures this particular precious moment – a fun and very sweet moment in time on a lovely Summer afternoon.
