Circus birthday scrapbook page


And yes, yet more mileage from the Pennant Punch and Polka Dots embossing folder! This is one of the projects we were given to make at a Stampin’ Up!® training session last month. I’ve changed it slightly from their design because I really wanted to use the new Pennant Punch.

It’s a 6x6 scrapbook page and quite simple to make. You cut a piece of the striped paper from Big Top Birthday to the same width as your photo. The sentiment panel is created using the Curly Label punch – you punch it again from Real Red, then cut it in half and layer behind the white.

The clown is stamped and coloured in using Watercolour Wonder™ crayons. And the linen thread is secured behind the white layer and the end hidden by the flags. The bunting on this occasion is created with the circle punch – just cut them in half and stick them down.
