I couldn't wait to document my niece's last birthday using the brand new Hey Cupcake collection. The darling color combo just screams birthday fun! The collection also includes super fun graphics like lollipops, candy pieces, pinatas, and more!  ​

​ I used the Doodlebug So Much Pun - Cupcake and Candles Cut File to create the mini album base. I resized the cupcake to 6 1/2 inches tall and cut out 15 cupcake bases out of white cardstock. I adhered these together in groups of 3 to end up with 5 thicker cardstock pages.
​Using one of the page bases as a guide, I hand drew a little bit smaller cupcake image. I hand cut this out and used it as a template to make the patterned paper page backgrounds. (If you don't want a white cardstock border on your pages you can omit this step.) I then used the amazing brand new Doodlebug Nesting Scallops Doodle Die to cut out about 12 scalloped circles to mix and match.
​ I used the journaling card from the back side of the Sundae Stripe Patterned Paper to tell my story. We had celebrated my niece's 6th birthday at Disney World. A stop at The Crystal Palace was just one of the little celebrations we had. I embellished this page with Icons Stickers and a banner piece from the Odds & Ends pack.

I made all of my photos 2" x 3" and with a small white border they fit perfectly in the journaling card from the Sundae Stripe Patterned Paper. I also had cut apart the Nesting Scallops cut outs in to little sections. Did you notice I tucked a little piece of it underneath the hearts? I love how it adds just a little aqua accent to the page! 
I think the Nesting Scallop cut outs make perfect anchoring pieces for my photos. I love the mix of circular elements with the rectangular photos. 
Hey Cupcake has so many adorable graphics, I had to include a couple pages without photos. I mean isn't that little piñata Icons Sticker perched above the Happy Birthday die cut piece just the cutest?!
I embellished this page with two scalloped circles from the Nesting Scallops Doodle Die Set. I used some Bright Assortment Matte Sprinkles to embellish the Happy Birthday emblem. I just love this plaid patterned paper, don't you?
I also love all of the tiny stickers on the Icons Stickers sheet! They helped me to add lots of little details to my page here.
On the last page, I used one of the Scalloped Circle cut outs underneath the Happy Birthday sticker. And that adorable llama patterned paper might be one of my favorites from this collection!
Thank you for joining me today! I had a blast using the brand new Hey Cupcake collection and Nesting Scallops Die Set! hope I have inspired you to grab some of these for your next mini labum or project!
