Birthday Layouts with American Crafts

Hi everyone,

I'm back again today with more birthday themed projects.  Last week - I had a total of 4 projects up on the American Crafts blog, but was traveling so I'm trying to play catch up now.

I like my birthday themed layouts to be as fun and full of life as the birthday subjects themselves.  The Amy Tangerine Plus one collection features embellishments and papers that breathe fun into your layouts.

15 Layout

I used the photo frame dies (included in the Amy Tan Plus One Associate pack) as the main focus of my layout.  After that, everything came together in a snap.  I added in a few punched banner pieces and tags taken from the super adorable sticker roll and strung them along using Plus One clothespins and AC twine.  I just love how it came out!
