Birthday Scrapbook Page

I entered several scrapbook pages into our county fair, and the Craft and Hobby judge refused to judge them because they were missing “expected elements”.  I didn’t put pictures on my scrapbook pages.  Whatever.  So, I am going to share these pages—and how to make them—with you over the next few days!

This is a page for one 5 x 7” picture.  Feel free to choose colors and patterns to fit your pictures.  Make it your own.


12x12” patterned card stock
12 x 4” coordinating solid card stock
5-1/4 x 7-1/4” solid card stock
5-1/2 x 7-1/2”printed paper
Assorted scrap papers
1 Cardstock tag
3x4” ephemera or printed paper
Wooden heart button (available in button section)
6 jewels
Birthday sentiment stamp
Black Staz-on ink
Die cutting machine
Paper cutter
Scrapbook tape
Stampin’ Up Top Note or Sizzix Fancy Labels Framelits
Sizzix Hearts Framelits
  • Use paper cutter to cut paper to above sizes.
  • Stamp birthday sentiment with black ink on the card stock tag
  • Using the die cutting machine, cut out one Top Note (or Fancy Label), one large heart, and 9 small hearts (the size I used is the next to the smallest size)
  • Adhere the 5-1/4 x 7-1/4” paper to the 5-1/2 x 7-1/4” paper, centering it
  • Lay (do not adhere) your 12 x 4” piece about 1” from the bottom of the 12 x 12” paper.  Using this as a guide, layer the top note/fancy label cut out and the large heart on the left side of the page (behind the stripe).  Adhere the top note/fancy label and large heart.  Remove stripe.
  • Place 13” of ribbon 1/2” from bottom of solid 12 x 4” paper.  Tape edges down on reverse    Tie a faux knot with 2” of ribbon on the right hand side.  Trim neatly.
  • Adhere the 12 x 4” stripe to the page, about 1” from the bottom; layering it over the label and heart. 
  • Adhere the picture matting on the left hand side of the 12 x 4” stripe, allowing it to overlap equally on both sides of the stripe.
  • Adhere the small hearts randomly to the stripe on the right hand side.
  • Adhere the ephemera rectangle at the top right, angled slightly.
  • Adhere three jewels to the top left and bottom right of the ephemera card.
  • Thread ribbon through gift tag and attach tag to the center of ephemera card.
  • Thread ribbon through wooden heart button and attach to gift tag.
