I'm here with a Valentines themed layout today. I have created a statement title on my layout using the C'est La Vie collection. Being a valentines layout I decided to scrapbook a photo of hubby and I from our wedding. I adore this photo as our photographer got us to stand still while the wedding party were jumping off at the side in a real blurry action shot. It made me think of love quotes where time stood still and that is where my inspiration came from for this page.
To begin my quote I used the chipboard letters from the C'est La Vie collection. I spaced the word out evenly and centered on my page using my t-square ruler. I then used my wide format printer to print the remaining quote. When planning this page I worked out approximately where my quote was going to sit to help me print it in the right place. The quote and chipboard letters make such a statement on this page that it is so obvious the meaning I am trying to convey.
I have a designer tip for you today which I have already found so handy when creating with these chipboard letters. When creating I title I flip my packet over and mark off the letters that I have used so far. This means that when I create a page next time, I know what letters I have available and makes it easier to know what titles will work and which won't. So handy!
I created a cluster of embellishments using the die cut ephemera, a puffy sticker, the word stickers and one of those gorgeous clips.
I normally always have a total of three cluster groupings on my pages to help achieve balance. This cluster in the bottom left corner combines the die cut ephemera, the puffy stickers, word stickers and those gorgeous mirror acrylic stickers.
Behind my photo is a combination of layers using two of the patterned papers and half a 4" doily. I wanted to keep this page nice and soft so I chose papers and embellishments that contained pink, grey, white, gold and a contrast of black.
This collection definitely leads itself to creating beautiful and elegant Valentines pages!
I will be sharing a process video for this layout soon on my YouTube channel so pop on over and subscribe to stay up to date.
