Pick a Pennant Stamp Set and Playful Pennants Framelits Dies.
Welcome to my blog! It’s Scrapbook Sunday …. Stampin’ Up! demonstrators using Stampin’ Up! product for memory keeping. The theme today is “Numbers”.
Numbers immediately brings to mind special birthdays! We recently celebrated my grandaughter’s 4th Birthday. Surprisingly none of the family took many photos on the day … I think we were too busy running around after many small children!! However Estella had the best day with all her Pre-School friends. She didn’t want the day to end.
Pick a Pennant
This is a bright, bright layout, echoing the theme of the triangle treat boxes we created especially for the day. Not having many images to play with, I used images of the treat boxes as fillers for the pockets.
The pennants are from Pick a Pennant stamp set, and are die cut with the co-ordinating dies from the Playful Pennants Framelits Dies. These two are bundled for purchase at a 10% discount.
I have also used the Lined Alphabet stamp set and Layering Alphabet Framelits dies to white emboss and cut out the letters for the word Celebrating. The die cut number four is from a retired numbers die set.
Utilise your own photographs of decorative elements as backgrounds – These very bright photographs of the triangle treat boxes make the perfect background image for a couple of the pockets in this layout, especially considering I didn’t have many images from the party.
Add some doodling – use a fine tip black permanent marker to add doodled frames to a number of the pocket pieces. This creates continuity and adds the look of an extra layer without any additional bulk. I doodled over the two solid colour elements and one of the background photos.
Use the Memories and More Packs – Don’t forget to utilise the oh so easy Memories and More packs, even if you are not featuring them. I added a background layer and the little “It’s Your Day” sticker from the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Pack.
Carry some design elements across two or more pockets – I have carried one of the pennant strings from Pick a Pennant stamp set across two pockets, adding the continued element right over the photo. This meshes the design elements .. sometimes pocket pages can appear “separated” by the pocket margins. The word “Celebrating” was easy enough to carry across two pockets and even across the pages, as all the letters were separate elements.
I hope you enjoyed this Pocket Page Layout. Make sure you visit all the fabulous designer’s blogs for more great memory keeping ideas using your Stampin’ Up! products. Next up is Colleen Johnson. Colleen is in my Inks and Whimsy team and is a long time and very talented scrapbooker.

You may (or may not) remember I featured these Triangle Treat Boxes for a Creating Kindness Blog Hop, but I didn’t get them all decorated.
Here is the original post ….
And, once decorated, this is how they ended up … the balloons are punched using the Balloon Bouquet punch, and the Glimmer Paper letter E is cut using the Large Letters Framelits Dies.
The balloons were tied to the letter E with some curling ribbon in bright colours. and a twist of curling ribbon also hold the little boxes together.
