I find it slightly ironic that this month's blog hop theme is Birthdays. You see we have two birthdays in our little family this month and countless birthdays in our extended family. Even better is, it's my oldest son Wesley's birthday today!
This year is his off year in that we do a smaller birthday for him, but it is still a big milestone birthday in our church so it can't go without a little celebration. June is also when I tend to be very busy at work for Father's Day (Father's Day usually falls in between Wesley's and my birthday).
Without a lot of time I decided to jazz up this store bought cake and make a little banner to hang on the wall sconces in our kitchen. It didn't take too long, but is the perfect handmade touch.
I used the offset feature in the Silhouette program to cut two mats from pattern paper for the large number twelve.
I added a small label and the "It's Your Day!" sticker from Samantha's new line Summer Lovin' by Carta Bella. The accents around the cake are 1x12 inch strips of paper that I wrapped on a colored pencil and then pulled to elongate.
The banner came together in no time with a little baker's twine and washi tape. I simply cut strips of pattern paper and wrapped a piece of washi tape around the top to secure them to the twine. No measuring. No precision.
Here's hoping our little stomach bug passes so we can dig into this cake tonight after dinner.
Supplies Pattern paper, stickers: Summer Lovin' by Samantha Walker for Carta Bella; Font for the number twelve: SW Par-tay Thyme; Baker's Twine: Doodlebug; Washi Tape: K&Co.; enamel dots: My Mind's Eye
