Hi there, Connie Nichol here today with a romantic scrapbook layout inspired by the February sketch in the CSM Sketchy Gallery.
Here’s the sketch this month. I ended up only using the idea of a heart tucked behind the photo, but it was a good place to start.
I started with the most gorgeous piece of patterned paper from Heartfelt Creations Peacock and Paisley line. The colours and patterns are simply beautiful.
I stamped a romantic stamp from Quietfire Design onto one of the patterned Heartfelt Creations journalling cards. It was a perfect embellishment for a wedding photo.
For the finishing touches, the title ‘Always and Forever‘, heart and butterflies were cut from Quietfire Design digital cutting files using a Sizzix Eclips 2 and the calligraphic heart is a metal die from the Calligraphic Elements 1 set from Elizabeth Craft Designs. Head over to the Quietfire Design blog to see more details about the cut files. I am so impressed with how the Eclips 2 easily cuts out the intricate calligraphy of the title, as well as the detail in the butterflies and heart.
Supplies Used: Heartfelt Creations patterned paper, Core’dinations ColorCore cardstock, Clearsnap ink, Quietfire Design stamp and digital cut files, Sizzix Eclips 2, Elizabeth Craft Designs calligraphic elements metal die, Kaisercraft pearls, Tombow adhesive.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
