Birthday Date Night / Chickaniddy Crafts

Hey there and Happy Friday, friends!  Today I'm sharing my latest project for Chickaniddy Crafts.  This layout went up on the blog a few days ago.  This layout was inspired by our July Pinspiration Board. I was inspired by this adorable outfit.  I love the color combo as well as the stripes.  I pulled out goodies from both Date Night and Twirly Girly to create my layout.

I scrapped a photo from my birthday dinner of my husband and both collections were a perfect mix here.  I combined the cute silverware sticker from Date Night with the birthday cake sticker from Twirly Girly, as well as other stickers and brads from both lines.  I started with a mint background paper and added some black striped stamping, some distress inked lines and some washi tape stripes.  Behind my photo cluster I used soft pink watercolors and gelatos.  I just love the soft feel of it up against the mint.

I just love these die cut stickers!  Such a fun element to a birthday and/or date layout!

I added some silver cord onto my layers.  Here you can see the dimension created between the elements.  I love these fun label and sentiment stickers...they're so easy to add to any project.

I love that I was able to combine both collections for a birthday date night project!  I pulled my favorite elements from each line.  Here you can see the background stamping.  I tried to mimic the stripes in the photo by using this fun rubber stamp and washi tape from my stash.

Another angle of the stamping and inking.  I made the larger stripes using a Heidi Swapp mini stencil and some distress inks.  I used my Cameo to cut those large pink circles.  I really enjoy cutting shapes to add to my backgrounds.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!
