I'm still hardly able to use my left arm & hand so I've simplified my style a bit. It's nice to have a page done in less than 2 hours lol. I am also shaky with the camera so I scanned these - so sorry for the funky color/shadows.
First is "Everyday Live Valentine's Day Love" is about my grandparents. They taught me that your relationship is what you put into it each and every day. That's why I chose the title because especially as they got older they really put the "holiday" effort into how they treated eachother. I liked using the journaling spots & tags as part of the title. The Little Yellow Bicycle Journaling Tablet is filled with different spots. Since they are printed on white paper I used my Old Paper Distress Ink to match the other papers.
My favorite product in this layout is the Pink Paislee Cupid Press Ons. They go on very eaasy & really added a lot to the page.
Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill Basics); Paper (Pink Paislee - Cupid Love Potion & Pink Paislee - Cupid Bullseye); Rub Ons (Pink Paislee - Cupid Press Ons); Tags (Cupid - Punch Outs); Journaling Spot (Little Yellow Bicycle - Journaling Tablet); Bling (Jenni Bowlin - Pearl Flowers Marashino); Ink (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Old Paper); Letters (American Crafts - Thickers); Thread (Coats & Clarks); Adhesive (Zva - Pop Dots, Tombow - Mono Adhesive & Glue Arts - Permanent Dots)
My next layout is "Godchild" - using old photos from my sister's baptism. These photos went really well with the green in Webster's Pages paper & the elegant look is perfect for the theme. This is an 8 X 8 size layout. That size gives you the best of a 12 X 12 without having to fill up those extra inches.
This paper by Webster's Pages really adds a lot of elegance. It's hardly recognizable since I covered the chandelier & didn't use the bolder color floral portion (saving for another project). I used the golden backside when punching out the butterfly embellishments.
Supplies: Cardstock (Bazzill Basics); Paper (Webster's Pages - Romantique Chic); Letters (American Crafts Thickers); Trim (Prima - Lace); Thread (Coats & Clarks); Punch (Martha Stewart - Butterfly); Bling (Zva - Symetrical Flourishes Pearls Taupe)
