Hey Pink Paislee fans – it’s Elsie here! To create today’s page I used the gorgeous new Confetti Wishes collection. I’m so in love with this collection and feel so inspired to create with it.
So for this layout I was inspired by the tropical theme that is featured throughout this collection.
The collection has several tropical bird images in it and I was inspired to recreate my own on this layout. To create my Toucan I used this cut file and I also couldn’t resist putting a pink party hat on the bird!
I used one of the specialty papers from the 6×6 paper pad to create the body of the bird. I love gold foiling and I love polkadots, so this paper is definitely one of my favourites in this collection.
Another favourite paper is paper 04. I cut this flower border cut file, which is designed by Paige, twice from this paper. Even though the B-side of this paper is more of a solid colour, it has some awesome texture, which adds loads of interest and variation when you’re cutting more solid/large elements.
I also used the light green B-side of paper 08 to die cut some tropical leaves to nestle amongst the floral border. I used my manual die-cutting machine for this with some metal dies as I had lots of oddly shaped scraps of this paper leftover, which would have been difficult to use with my cameo!
To create my title I used one of the gold foiled foam thickers that says ‘party’ and typed the rest of my title on my computer. For some more whimsy I put the title onto a speech bubble to make it look as if my Toucan is saying it!
And you guys know how much I love a good pun, so in full my title reads: ‘toucan party better than one’! Which works well with my photo of my bestie and I taken the morning after a party!
I also used my die-cutting machine to cut out some streamers from lots of patterned papers which adds some extra pops of colour in the leafy borders and looks so festive.
