Happy New Year Fancy Pants friends!

I’m back today with a new layout using the awesome Joy Parade collection designed by Kim. This is such a fun and bright collection, perfect for documenting those special celebrations in your life. I chose some photos of my son unwrapping presents at his birthday party a few months back.

There’s a pack of brag cards in this collection with lots of journaling spots and phrases. I always love these but since I don’t do Project Life I don’t often use them. Or if I do, I do a grid layout for which I don’t use an awful lot of them. On today’s layout I challenged myself to use more on one page. I basically handled them like patterned papers and used them to back my cut files.

This cut file is from The Cut Shoppe. I first backed the middle circles with the brag cards, then the stars. For these I used a mix of brag cards and 6×6 papers.

I used some foam to pop up all of my circles. I love dimension on my pages!

Then I added different embellishments to my circles: ephemera pieces, puffy stickers, a flair button and puffy alphas for my title. My absolute favourite pieces from this collection are the balloons in the ephemera pack. I just had to use a couple on this layout since it went with my birthday theme so well!

I added my journaling and the date in some journaling spots, so handy!

I encourage you to try and use your PL/brag cards even if you don’t do Project Life. They are so fun and come in such gorgeous designs! Don’t miss out!

Thanks for stopping by today, see you soon!
