Being the Mom of 2 boys I don’t get too many opportunities to use feminine papers in my scrapbooks. Blues, greens, browns – my pages overrunneth with those colors but pink – not so much.
That is about to change! This collection is obviously great for weddings and Valentine’s/Love themed pages but I have plans for all sorts of layouts using these fun papers. I can see using these gorgeous patterns with photos of our garden, summer fun and lots of family photos. I have many favorites that aren’t part of a specific event but ones I still want to include in our albums. Like this one:
Items used for this layout:
Fall In Paper Pack (background wood grained paper – love this!!)
Watercolor Love Paper Pack – Paterned Paper
Shades of Red Designer Cardstock – dark red used for all mats and tiny hearts on envelopes
Shape Maker System & Square Cartridge –envelopes
Border Maker System & Heart Chain Cartridge -hearts on envelopes
ABC/123 Black Stickers - Title
7” Personal Trimmer
All Purpose Scissors
Regular & Mini Tape Runner
To make the mini envelopes: punch a square using the Shape Maker System and Square Cartridge. Fold 3 of the corners to the center and tack down with a little adhesive from your Tape Runner. Add a “leftover” heart punched with the Border Maker System and the Heart Chain Cartridge. Adhere this tiny heart with your Mini Tape Runner.
