Love (again?!) - DT layout for Paige Evans

Hello there crafty friends,

Happy Valentine's Day all! We don't celebrate it, however I do usually buy something small for my boys, their favorite chocolate or something along those lines! What do you do for Valentines Day?

I'm sharing a new layout I've created for the Paige Evans Design Team today. Gosh, I am so creative with my titles that I just had to copy paste my previous blog post title OMG :D. I made the previous layout so long ago, I totally forgot about it. Oh well, both layouts will be in different albums eventually, when I can finally afford buying some! Random fact, last time we went to the US, I had to buy the biggest baddest suitcase ever in New Orleans just to fit the 12 albums and the huge amount of tools and supplies I bought there, including my first manual die cutting machine haha! I'm not sure when we go back, I can only hope soon, because there's hundreds of layouts all over our apartment and I'm not crazy enough to spend 40 eur on an album when you can get them at like 10 usd overseas...

Anyway, back to topic! I've used another older collection, Whimsical on this one. I feel like I haven't used Truly Grateful in so long, I need to do that before the new stunner, Bloom Street, is in the house!

The Love in Flowers cut file (Design ID: 313361) is just so pretty, I had to use it right away! Originally I wanted to make a colorful layout but then changed my mind while I was backing the cut file and ended up using a pretty limited color palette. I do like the softness of it though.

After backing the cut file, I pulled out all embellishments and selected a few that fit my colors. I will say, again, that rub-on stickers are one of my favorite products, this is my 4th pack in that collection! While I generally prefer dimensional embellies, these stickers are so versatile and perfect for little accents and finishing touches. I especially love the colorful faux stitching stickers - sure you could use your sewing machine, but changing threads all the time takes ages. So Paige, pls consider having full sheets of these rub on stitches in the future hehe!

Once I figured out where I wanted everything to go, I glued down everything, starting with the cut files. I then added some foam adhesive to my photo and added it to my page. I wrote my short journaling in between some border stickers, then stamped my date and splattered some ink all over my layout.

That's it! I hope I could inspire you in one way or another today!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an awesome day!
