Hello friends, and a Happy New Year to you all. It’s Kylie back with you all today with a new layout to share! I have been working with the super adorable ‘My Valentine’ collection and have scrapbooked a photo of my two munchkins from several years ago being all sorts of cute.
I was particularly drawn to the pink heart side of the 2 x 2 Elements paper, so this became my main background page. I used the Aqua/powder Dots paper from the Simple Basics Kit as a border page and loved the colour combo together. Since I wanted to add lots of texture to my page, I added some strips of Be Mine, 4 x 6 Elements and Carnation/Blush Dots paper throughout the middle of my background. I used a lace border punch on both edges, so it gave a sweet ruffled effect. Again, using a punch from my stash, I added a paper vine to the top and bottom of my page using the Rose/Lace Dots paper which I ran some machine stitching through.
The Layered Frames in this collection are so cute so I decided to add a ‘shaker’ heart frame to my layout. The heart was backed with some clear acetate and I added some foam tape around the edge on the back. Once I knew where to position my heart, I poured some sequins onto my page directly before adhering the heart over the top. It turned out super cute!
Next, I adhered my photo into place, again with foam tape so that it sat up from my background for dimension. I trimmed the white edge off some of the floral die cuts and layered them in behind my photo for balance.
To complete my layout, I added a large title from the sticker sheet.
Thanks so much for taking a look at my layout today. I hope it gives you a little inspiration for your own creating.
