Tips for these layouts:
*(Layout 1) When cutting the Crystal Blue, cut the Cricut cuts first, then you can use one of the scraps from the inside of the frame to cut the 3 1/4 square.
*(Layout 1) When cutting, note that the blue birthday patterned paper is an Accent.  You may not want to cut this and just use scraps later.
*(Layout 1) Double check the layering and spacing when applying the papers on the left page with the overlay.  It can be a bit tricky.
*(Layout 2) You may want to cut out the center of the Diagonal Stripes patterned paper to avoid waste and save it for another project.
*(Layout 2) For the perfectly matched banner, cut two pieces of Shimmer Trim and hold them back to back before cutting the angle.
*(Layout 2) For the title, first place the letters down on your page where you want them, then place an acrylic block overtop so they stick to it.  Now you can ink it and they will stamp right where you want them!

Here are the layouts as I completed them.  On the second I moved around the pieces to accommodate my photos and on the first one, I did put Shimmer Trim across the second page as well, but didn’t notice it until after I took the picture (and too lazy to take a new one!).
