This week at Frosted Designs, our Fabulour Friday Challenge is to use numbers in your project. I took this as a great opportunity to do Tanner's birthday pages! He turned 6 on 11-8-11 and celebrated at Grandma and Grandpa's house and with a new bike from mom and dad.
I used this 6 border from Graphically Speaking. I sized the WIDTH to 11.5. I cut this out twice in red cardstock.
I used blue cardstock for my background paper and found one piece of this Super Dude paper from my stash. Because the paper is so busy, I justput a 5 inch section across both pages.
I wanted a banner so I grabbed these banner layers from Birthday Bash. I sized them at 2.22 inches and 1.94 inches. The font is from Birthday Bash and I sized the numbers to .88 and the letters to 1.0 inch. The Half Dozen phrase came from Graphically Speaking and is sized at 1.24 inches.
The bike came from April Showers and the gears came from Paper Lace 2. I sized the bike at 1.94 inches and the gears at 1.0, 1.08 and 1.39 inches. I cut them out in black cardstock and silver cardstock.
I intended on cutting the banners out in two layers, one with the remaining 2 inches of my patterned paper. I made a rookie Gypsy mistake and put the paper on wrong! They put that arrow on the side of the Gypsy mat for a reason!!! So this is my Plan B ~ black cardstock numbers on orange cardstock. I used my Tim Holtz mini attacher to secure the twine onto my banner.
I tied some twine around the middle picture and pop dotted it overlapping the other two pictures.
I adhered the black gear to the page and pop dotted the silver one on top of it.
I had a lot of fun with this one and it turned out way different than I originally planned!! Thanks for stopping by today!
