Hey there! This is Lisa Day hijacking the blog today! (I have some goodies to giveaway so I'm sure you won't mind!)
When it comes to scrapbooking Birthdays for my kids it feels very much like "second verse same as the first"! (ha, now try getting that out of your head...it's impossible!) My son and daughter's birthdays are only 1 day apart so they end up celebrating and doing everything together. I have decided that since they share a cake, the party, the guest, and even open presents together that I can make the layouts I do for their birthdays follow the same pattern. I can scrap the same topic and even use the same design. It’s actually nice in that respect so I don’t have to recreate the wheel for each layout and I can just get it done!
The Birthday Bash line made this so easy this year. I love the versatile colors and patterns. Using the same design for each layout – just reversed – I was able to create two quick layouts that still feel very different. The layout I did for my son feels very boyish and the layout for my daughter feels very girlish. It’s fun to make the same layout but still make them unique to fit each child. To me this is an easy way to approach scrapbooking events!

Here’s a look at the two layouts I made, plus a cute little banner I made to hang from their bedroom door on their actual birthday!
These layouts have the same design and even product, but they still feel unique!
I added some pop to the "Happy Birthday" circles on the paper by punching out matching circles and adding some foam squares behind them. I covered a large i-top brad with some fabric and a rub-on to add the birthday year to each layout!
I love how the curve of the celebrate banner and the scallops helps add a soft girly feel to this layout!
I did the same thing on this page and cut out the "celebrate" from another piece of paper and added it to the top with some foam squares. I love the pop it adds!
I can not even tell you how much I love these candles!! I "carefully" burnt the end of each one to give it a more real candle look. I love it!
