Hello everyone!  I'm here today to show you how I created this layout documenting my daughter's 4th birthday.


First, I cut out the Circle Star Cluster cut file using my Silhouette Cameo, which you can download for free here...


I always cut out more than I need just in case I make a mistake altering something and so that I have extras on hand and ready to use.  

Next, I used some spray ink in three different colors to ink my cut (which I cut out using white card stock) and let dry.  I wanted it to have a sort of "watercolor" effect and I used my spray ink very sparingly.  



After the ink was completely dry, I adhered coordinating colored sequins on top of the Circle Star Cluster for added dimension and a little bling! 



Finally, I used some tags from the Birthday Cake Collection and punched out two circles from them using a 1" punch.  Then I placed them behind the empty circles in the cut and adhered them to my page.  



I also used a few Autumn Days Labels for my sentiment and date stamps...


 And here's a few close-ups of my layout...



Supplies Used:  Autumn Days (Labels), Birthday Cake (Gift Tags, Snip' Em Tags, Labels)

I hope you enjoyed a little peak into my creative process!  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!
