Twilight Scrapbook Theme - New Moon Bella’s Birthday
How to Make a Twilight Birthday Scrapbook
If you love Twilight scrapbooking, why not try this cool Bella's Birthday Theme for your next Twilight scrapbook?
If you love Twilight and scrapbooking, why not combine the two? There are lots of ways to make Twilight scrapbooks. You could use a Twilight theme with your own photos, or collect together your Twilight pictures and memorabilia, or create a mini Twilight book based on a theme from the book!
If you've had or are holding a Twilight birthday party, then a Twilight birthday scrapbook is a great way to document the day. From the Twilight cake to the decoration, you can create a wonderful memento of everything that happens at your party! A perfect theme to use for this is Bella's birthday party from New Moon. I have put together a selection of Twilight scrapbook pages below, using both the Gerbera Daisy cake theme from the film, and the pink theme from the book, and also combinations of the two.
The Twilight scrapbook layouts below use pictures from the films, but you can of course recreate the pages using your own birthday photos instead. The most important thing is to be creative, and have fun!

Bella's Birthday Twilight Scrapbook Page
This page is based heavily on the gerbera daisy cake from New Moon. I wanted to combine the green stripes with gerbera daisies and thought it would make a great layout to show off your Twilight birthday cake if you had designed it along these lines. Of course, a Twilight cake in red, black and/or white would look better on a Twilight red and black theme - I'll be adding this tutorial shortly!
To make this page I took a piece of suitable 12x12 scrapbook paper that featured a green stripe design. I used a photo of Bella opening her present with Edward and a photo of the cake. You can of course use similar photos from your own party.
I used sparkly khaki photo corners for one photo and matting and layering with cardstock in similar colours to the cake for the other photo.
I then added fabric gerbera daisies and other fabric flowers that were similar in style. I used black brads to act as both the centre of the flower and to secure them to the page.
I love the silver "BELLA" letters on the top of Bella's cake, and so wanted to include this element on my page design. I used plain chipboard uppercase alphabet letters and painted them silver using Adirondack Metallics Acrylic Paint Dabber in Silver. These are fab and really easy to use - see below for where to buy. Use glue or sticky pads to fix them to the page.
I finished off with some party-themed cardstock tags and quotes, decorating the main one with a couple of matching rhinestone gems. I used what I had in my scrapbooking box but you could make your own based on your party, or using Twilight quotes.
Never start sticking things onto your page until you have decided upon all of your elements. Experiment with angles, spacing and decoration first - when you are happy with your design you can stick everything down at the end! Otherwise you might want to add something and not have the space, or decide that the photos would look better arranged differently because of something else you want to add.

Bella's Birthday Cake Twilight Scrapbook Page
Here is another Twilight scrapbook layout for the birthday cake! This time I used green stripey paper that had white daisies already on it, hence why I used white fabric flowers to decorate.
This is a really quick and simple design - all you need to do is position the photo of your cake, add matting and layering if desired, and photo corners for some added interest. Decorate with a fabric gerbera daisy or two and use painted chipboard alphabets (as described in the previous design) to spell out BELLA, or your own name/the name of the birthday girl!

Bella's Birthday Party Twilight Scrapbook Page
This is my favourite page from this theme! Birthday parties are all about friends and family, and of course, the party dress!
This time around I went for a pink theme, in keeping with Alice's original party décor in the book. I combined this with matching fabric gerbera daisies to represent the film version. I used a mixture of black brads and pink rhinestones to decorate the centres.
I wanted to capture the family element here, so used pictures of Bella and Alice, and Bella and Edward with the Cullens. The picture of Alice taking a photo of Bella and Edward, with Carlisle and Esme looking on, really summed up a family party I felt.
I also wanted to do a layout showcasing Bella's beautiful dress, so I used a picture of her wearing it and found an image of the real dress online, printed it out onto card and cut out my own unique embellishment. I added a white fabric daisy just for fun!
Photo corners can really jazz up photos, and set them off nicely against a background. Here I emphasised the picture of Bella on her own with brighter corners, so that she was the focal point in her dress.
Finally I added relevant quote embellishments - the "Memories" one is in chipboard so it really stands out nicely, being the main quote. The other two are cardstock - "Make a Wish" for the family shot and "Sisters" for the shot of Alice bringing Bella down the stairs.
If you are using photos from your own party, caption accordingly!

Party Time Twilight Scrapbook Page
More gerbera daisies for this design! I wanted to show a design which incorporated a general party photo, so here I showcased some Bella birthday theme cupcakes that I made. I combined it with the Cullen family shot from the party, which you can replace with a shot of everyone from your own.
All I did was add photo corners, fabric daisies and a party time card tag to the bright gerbera daisy scrapbook paper.
I also made an alternative design below to go with the Twilight photo - Bella was a reluctant party girl so I thought the tag "grin and bear it" was an appropriate embellishment if you were making a scrapbook of Twilight moments!
