“Delicate Victorian Birthday Girl” Scrapbook Page

"Delicate Victorian Birthday Girl" Scrapbook Page Layout

   I have been often called a Victorian Woman trapped in a modern day ladies body, thus my love for everything elaborate, Victorian, and art. My home is decorated and pays homage to the Victorian era, and I have many antique pieces. For those who do not know, the toile pattern was very popular amongst the Victorian people and often depicted a two color pattern that consisted of children playing, a couple courting, pastorial images and they were often multiplied throughout the fabric, wall paper and other items. I recently came across one of the prettiest pink and white paper toile of children playing from the Anna Griffin paper line. I bought up every sheet that was available and I am so glad I did as the pattern has now been discontinued.

Tip: If you see a paper or embellishment that you love, buy it. There is no guarantee that the pattern will continue and you will be left without.

This page was created by me for a Birthday Swap I was in where I was to make elements for a 12”x12” Girl’s Birthday. I decided to create a very girly and delicate, feminine page. This page took me 3 hours to create and design and included photo mats, journal boxes, embellishments, bling, craft foam, and other items to bring life to the page. I have included a journal box that has the little dress placed in the center, when you open the holder up a little pink bird greets you. I used 2 inch wide pink and white gingham ribbon as a page border. Red chenille fibers were used to create the balloon strings. I used my Cricut cutting machine to cut the little dress, Birthday Girl Embellishment, balloons, and a silhouette of a little girl blowing out a candle. I used the following Cricut Cartridges: Happiliy Ever After, and A Child's Year. The paper was used from a large paper assortment.
