Scrapbooking Global June Blog Hop – Birthdays & Parties


It’s fun to be hopping with the Scrapbooking Global – Stampin’ Up! Group today. So pleased you are hopping by!

If you’re not familiar with the group – this is a closed Facebook Group that “…  is for Scrapbookers who use Stampin’ Up!. This group is open to anyone…Demonstrator or not.”  The group shares projects feature mostly Stampin’ Up! products – used in any Scrapbooking/Memories and More/Project Life/Mini Albums and Samplers/Canvases. 

Marga Bultena is Guest Designer for June, and her Theme is Birthdays and Parties. So I’m imagining you will see lots of happy fun layouts today. 


I’m sharing a layout of photos taken at my Dad’s 80th Birthday Party. Of course, we try and get a great family picture when we are together. I don’t know what taking family pictures is like for you – but getting the five of us siblings together, in the same photo and all looking half decent in just one photo has always been tricky!

Capture the Good

Then add in now adult offspring and partners – on both sides of the lens – and it doesn’t get any easier!

Capture the Good

But the hijinks and laughter behind the photos are all part of the party and that’s what I wanted to convey in this layout!

Not sure if you can see in the photos above, but the hearts in centres of the camera apertures are shiny. I added some Fine Tip Glue onto the image to get that look.

I really wanted the photos and the camera images to be the feature so haven’t added lots of texture or other embellishments – though I did add a little texture to the Smile sentiment.

Capture the Good

Most of the images and sentiments come from the gorgeous “Capture the Good” Stamp Set.

I know this set is going to see a lot of ink.

But I also used the “family” definition from Praiseworthy Prose and the numbers from “Family Party” – how perfect for this layout and hop!

Hope you get a smile from my wonderful family – I love them all dearly! 

I’m glad I can capture and record these good times. If you’re in New Zealand and looking for a creative coach – there’s lots of info about how I can help further down.

    Thanks so much Cynthia!

  1. A knockout layout, so creative! I love how you added the cameras across the page at an angle and stamped the text to create a background.

  2. I love how you used that stampset! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Haha, Jackie I know what it is like trying to get me and my brother and my dad to all smile and look at the camera at once… So I feel your pain… YES it is so important to make the photograph the focus rather than all the other pretty stuff around the layout!!! I cannot believe that I forgot to order this stamp!!! It will be going on my next order. Thanks for joining us Jackie and LOVE your layout.
    Cheers Shaz

    Thanks Amber! Yes – I did Stamp the cameras across a complete page, then fussy cut around them and then added a piece of stamped whisper white behind.

    WONDERFUL, did you stamp the cameras and then fussy cut around them on the edge of the paper? I love the total look of your page such a stunning layout. TFTS
