Hello, Connie Nichol here with a scrapbook layout featuring two Quietfire A Way with Words dies manufactured by Elizabeth Craft Designs.   I am slowly scanning and scrapbooking 35 mm slides from my childhood.  My parents did not take a lot of photos when I was growing up and always used slide film, and these days, who sits down with a slide projector to look at a picture?  So, it is a bit of a process to turn these slides into digital and hard copies, but well worth it.

The Celebrate die is perfect for a birthday page title and the flourish and exclamation point from the Calligraphic Elements 1 add that extra emphasis.

The background paper is a old piece of kraft Stampin Up paper from my stash.  I dressed it up a bit by repeatedly stamping Happy Birthday from the Quietfire Happy Birthday Plain and Simple stamp set. (The musical note background is very subtle, and if you want the exact same look, you could stamp the musical notes stamp included in the Quietfire Crows stamp set  using clear embossing ink).

All the square page embellishments are Shimmer Sheetz from Elizabeth Craft Designs that have been dry embossed with two different Elizabeth Craft Designs embossing folders.  I just love the beautiful colours and shimmeriness (is that word?) that they add to the page.  I cut some of the leftover pieces into little triangles to make a banner.  Then I added a few birthday candles I had purchased from the dollar store.  Done!  Have a great day and be sure to scrapbook the pictures from your childhood.
Supplies:  Quietfire Design stamps, Elizabeth Craft Designs A Way with Words metal cutting dies, green and pink iridescent shimmer sheetz and Swirly Curves and Trendy Tiles 1 embossing folders, Clearsnap ink, Stampin Up patterned paper, twine, candles.
