Ever wondered how to use a sketch when you don't have the same sized photos as what the sketch calls for? Inspiration is great to have on hand from sketches but sometimes the photos I want to scrapbook don't fit exactly to what is laid out on the sketch. But if you like the sketch you can always switch up the photo size or even flip the layout around. A note about using different photo sizes than what is shown on the sketch, you might need to change the size of other designer series paper or cardstock in the sketch to match the larger or small photo. For my scrapbook layout, the smaller square photo didn't require any other changes other than the photo mat. 

Chocolate cake is my favourite for my birthday. And since the cake in the photo is chocolate I coloured the stamped cupcake to match using Early Espresso ink and the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush. The less ink you pick up with your Wink of Stella brush the lighter the ink colour you put onto the stamped image. The glitter ink takes a little longer to dry so make sure to leave your layout somewhere it can dry. 

Use Stampin' Up!'s Bright & Beautiful DSP to Scrapbook Your Photos on a Birthday Layout

This video shares how you can assemble this layout. You might notice that I coloured the chocolate cupcake but never glued it to my layout in the video! I put the image off to the side to dry a bit before putting it on the layout then forgot about it until I was cleaning off my desk. At least it was found and put in it's proper spot on the layout.
