I changed up some of the picture sizes to suit what I had. I used a 4x6 instead the first 4x4. I used the acrylic frame instead of a 2x2 and I omitted a 4x6 and used patterned paper instead. My embellishment clusters are still in triplicate, just placed slightly differently. It was too busy to have something next to the title so I moved that one up to the top left.
Here is a closer look at some of the details:

"Happy Birthday" by Carolyn Wolff

This is one of my favourite two-page sketches! I love, love, love the banners and as soon as I saw them, I thought of making birthday banners!
Variation #1 – The placement of my banners is different than shown on the sketch. I used the banner on page 1 as part of my title. My banner says ‘Happy’ and then I used my Cricut to cut out the phrase ‘Birthday’.
I placed the second banner on page 2 and it says ‘Celebrate’. I eliminated the third banner all together.
Variation #2 – I replaced the butterfly images with the owls that were part of the pattern papers. I hand cut them out and used foam adhesive to pop them up. I used one to embellish my title, one by the banner and the other by the presents.
Variation #3 – I decided to replace the 2x2 photos and make an embellishment instead. I created some presents by layering different size squares. I started with 2x2 squares for the base and then decreased the size by ¼ inch each time. The top layer is popped up with foam adhesive. Allison has done something similar to this on layouts and I just loved the idea and wanted to give it a try. I used my Cricut and cut out the cross with the burst for the present topper.
Variation #4 – For my journaling, I typed out the verse for the Happy Birthday song and then cut it into strips. I cut out the word ‘happy’ several times from one of the pattern papers and used foam adhesive to pop it up over the typed word.
Variation #5 - I added a stitched scalloped border above the journaling and added punched out circles from the pattern paper.
