Birthdays are the name of the game…for a while, at least. The Daily Digi is celebrating its birthday all month long and our family is getting ready to head into BIRTHDAY SEASON. We celebrate eight birthdays between January 30 and May 1, with SEVEN of those being in an EIGHT WEEK period! Phew! That’s a lot of birthdays! I’ve talked about scrapping and taking photos on birthdays, but today I want to turn our attention to using our digi supplies to help us celebrate!
From the very beginning of my experience with digital scrapbooking, I have loved to use my digi supplies to help with our celebrations. From my photos cakes in 2006 and 2007 to a birthday t-shirt for my five year old in 2013, my digi supplies have always helped us make our celebrations FUN!
There are so many fun ways to use our digital scrapbooking skills and supplies to help celebrate the lives of those we love. Here are just a few ideas for you(and if you have more, I would love to hear them because like I said, we have a lot of birthdays coming up!)
You can make a graphic one like this
Or a hybrid one like this.
A quick search on Pinterest will give you lots of ideas!
(CUP)CAKES & CAKE TOPPERS
I already showed you the cakes I made for my sons’ birthdays many years ago and it’s still a great option. Just look for a place that will do photo cakes and give them your flattened .jpeg file for a perfect customized cake.
Cupcake and cake toppers are super easy to make and the abundant supply of digi materials, they are quick and fun too. Just look at these inspiring ideas from Etsy! Images are linked to original sources.
Nothing says fun like a specially created birthday banner!

Saying “thank you” to your guests in the form of small gifts and favors is a great way to use your stash.
