Welcome to the first Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop! I'm so glad you have joined us!  This month, our first, fellow crafters from around the world are bringing you a selection of scrapbook layouts using current Stampin' Up! products. 

I am excited to use some of my Designer Series Paper and stamps to put together a layout of my nephews birthday party - I've needed the push to get back into scrapbooking!

I like to take inspiration from the photos to get a colour palette if possible. In this layout I used Pineapple Punch and Real Red. Thats one of things I love about Stampin' Up! - all of the colour options we have and how well things coordinate!

I kept the layout very simple - I wanted the focus to be on the pictures - I love the series of him seeing his cake, blowing out the candles and so excited with himself. The other two photos help bring life to the journalling. 

I did a bit of stamping for the layout - again keeping things simple. I added a background stamp, in the top left and bottom right corners, from the Touches of Texture set in Pineapple Punch ink. I wanted to add the date of the event so using the Make a Difference set I stamped it out in Real Red ink. 

The title - Happy 4 Birthday was made using the Happy Birthday die, I cut it apart and then using the Fine-Tip glue to layer together 3 white die cuts and one Real Red - this gives the die cut depth and helps raise them up without too much bulk. 
The number 4 is from a retired die set.

I like to keep the journalling easy, so I typed it out and cut it into strips using the trimmer. 

I have a few more photos from the day so I will add those into a pocket page to go in my album beside this layout - super simple - but the story is documented and my photos are easy to see and definitely my focal point - always key for me in my scrapbooking.

For a list of all the supplies I used please scroll to the end of this post.
