5 Today by Anita Enright

#couturecreationsaus #ultimatecrafts


Hello, I am really enjoying this cooler weather here in Brisbane, and I know it sounds strange but it has boosted my creative streak.  I have been playing quite a bit lately using the new releases from Couture Creations and today I am sharing with you a layout I have created using the 
IT'S A BEAUTIFUL LIFE collection of dies.  As my layout is from my niece Lilli's 5th birthday party I have used the balloons and cupcake dies.



From my paper stash I selected a background paper and some matching plain papers that matched my photo.  I think spritzed the background paper in a yellow and a pink shimmer spritz.


From the four matches plain papers cut out the two cupcakes in each of the colours.  I took the cupcakes that I die cut and sprayed them with adhesive and then sprinkled them with glitter and 
set them aside to dry.  I also cut out four of each colour in the balloons and used added a little bit of crystalina glitter glue to the balloons with my fingers to keep it minimal. You will notice when die cut the balloons there are two little stars.  I kept them as I attached them over the finished layout.


Once dry I added glue to the bottom edges of the cupcakes and attached them to the left side of my base paper.  I don't like to totally glue the die cuts down as leaving parts of it 'loose' it gives the page more dimension.  You will be able to see this in a couple of the closeups below. I then added some of the balloons throughout the cupcake dies. 


I mounted my photo on foam tape and added the finishing touches to the page.   
Below are a few closeups of my finished page.
