Hi! Renee here to share a Valentine’s day layout using the adorable My Funny Valentine collection. I found this studio portrait of Caitie from her first Valentine’s day and wanted to scrapbook it using the new Valentine’s Day collection. I love looking back on these photos and seeing just how fast time goes by and how big my baby girls are getting. My lovely and very little Caitie!
I started my I Love You layout by using the Happy Valentines Day pattern paper for my background. I trimmed off the bottom strip from the XOXO pattern paper and added it to the bottom of my page. Then, I trimmed the Pretty In Pink pattern paper to 5″ x 12″ and added it to the top of my page.
Now, to tell you about my photo and pattern paper layers. I go in reverse. I build my layers from my photo first and then add them already adhered together to my layout.
- I trimmed an 8″ x 10″ studio portrait of my sweet baby Caitie to 6″ x 6″.
- I trimmed the Sweet Treats pattern paper to 6 3/8″ x 6 3/8″ and added it under my photo.
- I trimmed the Beautiful Day pattern paper to 5 ½” x 8 ¼” and added the horizontal piece underneath my layers.
- I trimmed the Scattered Hearts pattern paper to 6″ x 7″ and added the vertical piece underneath my layers.
- I trimmed 1″ x 6″ strips of the polka dot pattern paper from the 6 x 6 Paper Pad and added them along the bottom and left side of my photo.
I used a fun mix of stamps and my Black Precision Pen to mark the occasion.
Here’s a close-up photo of my title. I used the Puffy Stickers for my title and what I love about them (besides looking fantastic) is that I can reposition them without pulling up any bit of my photo or pattern paper. Still, they are sticky enough to stay on my page once in place.
Love the cluster of embellishments here. Adorable flower Puffy Stickers and hearts, a XOXO ticket, flowers, and heart dispensing gumball machine Stickers to finish off my I Love You layout.
Thanks for stopping by the Pebbles blog today! Hope you all have a very Happy Valentine’s Day!
