I am here with a layout I did last weekend for the journaling challenge at Global Scrappers. The challenge was to use strips to print or write our journaling on. I use this technique pretty regularly so this was a pretty easy challenge.
To make the large polka dot paper on the right a little more festive I stamped the balloons and "smile" circles and then used embossing powder and heat embossed them. The border in the middle of the photo collage is made up mostly of leftover die cuts from other projects. I made the cupcake, present and hat using my Cricut and "Doodlecharms" cartridge specifically for this layout.
