Scrapbook layout 'In the Park'

How I created the frog for this layout

Using the Sizzix Sizzle dies Nature set I cut out the frog 3 times

using brown for the base, red for the frogs tongue

and Echo Park 'A walk in the PARK' tree tops for the top layer.

I cut the top part of the red frogs head and adhered it under the

top layer making sure to overlap the tongue onto the front of the

top layer. I inked around the edge of the frog using

Versa Color 55 Umber. I put pop dots under the top part of the

frogs face to give it a 3D effect. I glued the body flat onto the

base cutout. For the frogs legs I curled the paper under. To do that

I just used my fingers to manipulate the paper the way I wanted it.

The last thing I did was to glue on the frogs eyes.

Image More Cards
Birthday Bash

To create the base for the card I used the card feature on
page 38 Birthday Bash handbook. I printed and cut the base
on the Cricut Imagine @ 5 inches. The pattern on the card
base was from Imagine More Cards cartridge page 41 handbook.
Using the Birthday Bash cartridge I printed and cut the tag
page 39 handbook @ 5 inches. The pattern for the tag I used
the pattern on page 40 of the Imagine More Cards handbook.
The scallop was cut using the tag feature on
page 43 Birthday Bash handbook. Printed and cut @ 4.9 inches.
To make the cake I used the Imagine More Cards image on
page 2 in the handbook. I printed and cut the cake @ 3 inches
using the layer feature. I assembled the cake using pop dots.
The Happy Birthday was cut from the Image More Cards
cartridge. I used the image on page 10 in the handbook.
I used the layer feature and printed & cut only the layer
Happy Birthday Chick @ 3.5 inches. I used pop dots to adhere
the sentiment Happy Birthday to the card.
To embelish the card I used thin green and pink ribbon.
