If you're here from Debbie's blog, welcome! This month's is Banana Frog's birthday and there are some great prizes to win (if you have checked the BF's blog). So the theme's this month is on 'birthday'. I've in store some projects relating to it!
Kids love wearing birthday badges. Not surprising since it publicise their birthdays. One can easily buy a badge with any sentiments on it these days. Bearing that in mind, I thought I create one using one of the new stamp set that came out recently.
I used Fairytale Princess for this project. The word 'Birthday' came from Retro Greetings set (one of my well-used stamp set).
The base is punched using a 3" scalloped punch. A piece of scrapped patterned paper was laid over it. Then the relevant images was stamped, coloured with Copics and attached using foam dots. To wear it, simply attached a brooch pin at the back. Voila, that's it, a simple and rather unique birthday badge for your li'l princess!
Let's not forget if you have boys (like I do) so I created another one just for boys. I made use of Charming Prince stamp set.
Background was sprayed with a silver mist. Stamped images coloured using Copics. A quick and easy birthday badge for a boy
I also made a quick mini LO (6x4") for my display frame. I love doing mini LOs as they are very quick to finish and easy to display and store! I bought an Ikea flip-over frame with 6 pages (which equates to 12 pages) some time ago and it was left in my cupboard for years until last year when I decided to do something about it. It struck me that I could do a 6x4" LO whenever I've a new photo. It will be displayed in the frame. The only time the LO is removed is when it's being replaced with a new LO. Any old ones are simply stored in a 6x4 album (any normal photo album, which can be easily altered of course!) So far, it has been successful and guests who visit, love looking at them. Here's my LO:
Photo of my other half on his birthday. Photo size is 4x3". This size allows you to use up any leftover scraps. As the space is easy to fill, it can be done in less than half an hour!
