Happy Valentine’s Day Friends! It’s Leanne here today and I’m so happy to be able to share a layout with you, using the gorgeous My Funny Valentine collection!! Have a look at all those pink and red tones! Just perfect for scrapbooking the ones you love.
The layout I am sharing today features the relationship I have with my teenage daughter. Lot’s of hugs and kisses.
It is not often that I get in front of the camera but this photo with my girl, was a great one to document with x’s and o’s trimmed from the collection’s mini paper pad.
Using the We R Memory Keepers mini alphabet punch board, I punched out two letter o’s. The x’s were free style cut as opposed to using the mini alphabet punch, as I felt the layout needed sharper lines instead of curves. I love that these letters form my title but before I added them to the page, I’ve built up a few layers of patterned paper to mount my photo on.
You may notice, I have also added layers between the layers. The ephemera dies and fussy cut flowers from the Pretty In Pink patterned paper, have been placed to overlap and draw the eye across my page with their splashes of colour. The puffy stickers are a fun element to add to the layers and clusters of patterned paper without too much distraction.
To complete my layout, I have typed my journaling onto excess cardstock and cut into strips. I then machine stitched each journaling phrase directly to my cardstock base. A few splashes of Heidi Swapp colorshine , a machine stitched border and I have a cute Valentine’s Day layout to add to my 2017 album.
I hope I have encouraged or inspired you to document your own Valentine’s Day memories. February is the perfect month to scrapbook any kind of relationship, so be sure to take advantage of all the pink and red colours in the My Funny Valentine collection. Thanks for visiting..x
