I love the bright and happy colors of this new birthday-themed collection. They make me think big! Thinking big, I went with this photo from Payton’s 7th birthday; it has become an easy favorite. and I knew it would look great as an enlarged print. With that in mind, I printed it off as a 7″ x 12″. I’m so happy I did!
The Rainbowtastic pattern paper was a great starting point for my Make A Wish layout. I knew where I wanted to place my photo on the page and made a line to keep everything straight (if you look at the top of the pattern paper, you can see where I drew a pencil line along my photo before the spot the pink diagonal stripe starts; it measures about 4-7/8″ from the right side of the page). I also added machine stitching along the thinner diagonal stripes on the right of the page.
I then trimmed the Celebrate pattern paper to 1-¼” and adhered it along the left edge of the page. I love how the large circle design of this paper matches up with the sprinkles on Payton’s birthday cake!
Since pattern papers are my favorite, I decided to trim a bunch of different ones and place them within the diagonal stripes. The stripes measured anywhere from the smallest at 1″ to the largest at 1-3/8″. I adhered my photo along the pencil line which I could still see.
With my photo in place, the fun part of adding embellishments could begin! I couldn’t resist the adorable animal Stickers.
