Hi everyone! Jodi here today to share with you a layout I created using the new Hip Hip Hooray Collection! As soon as I saw the cute little monsters & robots, I knew I was going to have to dig up my son's 2 year old birthday party pictures! Once I saw the colors, I knew it would be perfect to showcase his party!
For the title, I used the word "birthday" from the icon cardstock stickers. I absolutely LOVED the font with the shadow effect, so I decided to create the second word of my title with a similar effect using the Tangerine Simply Sweet Cardstock Sticker on top, with the shadow bieng the Lily White Simply Sweet Cardstock Sticker! It is so easy to create this effect when Doodlebug has so many different colors in the same font. I also added some cute stickers to replace the O in boy, and added a small star sticker to dot the I (and extra cute title effect, don't you thing?)
My favorite part of the layout was working with the cute little monsters! They are just so adorable!I added the two already holding the balloons, and then added a third monster carrying two balloons, by using some doodlebug twine.
this & that sticker sheet! The spacing between the lines is perfect, and allows enough room to tell a story! I layered some more sticker on top too for some extra fun!
Finally for the last spot on my layout I added a large circle sticker from the this & that sticker sheet; but I wanted the sticker to be more dimensional so I popped it up with foam tape and added another popped up cake that fit perfectly on top. Along each side of my layout I also used the garland (yep a favorite of mine with this release!)
So I hope you enjoyed my walk-through of my creative process when creating this birthday layout! You will simple LOVE this line for all your birthday projects!

Hi Everyone...Kathy here today to showcase a couple of fun layouts I created using the Hip Hip Hooray Collection. I absolutely love this collection. The colors are so cheery and those little monsters just captured my heart! My problem ... I don't have any little guys in my life! Besides my sweet husband...we are a household full of girls! Lucky for me, Hip Hip Hooray is a very versatile collection. I was easily able to come up with two layouts featuring a "different" side of this line.
My first layout showcases my husband and his "toy." He always wanted a vintage Mustang, so last year he bought this beauty!
The coordinating washi, the papers and even many of the stickers can be used for more than birthday themed layouts.
The Life is Good was cut from one of the Simply Put cards
I created my title using a mix of different Doodlebug Alphas from the Teensy Type sheets.
My second layout features my two "not so little" monsters...Daisy and Rosie.
As I said...those little monsters from the Monsters- Icon Mini stickers are just too cute! (Kind of like my kitties!) I decided to showcase them as little "stamps."
Again...one of my favorite techniques, mixing and matching alphas for titles!
That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by!
