Hi guys welcome to my first project with the FEBRUARY KITS today I am showing you a layout I created with TSK BELLA. Unfortunately this kit sold out really quickly however there are still subscriptions available for next month and I have also featured a lot of our BITS & PIECES kit for February VALERIE on this page too which is still available for purchase in the store.
Once again I decided to challenge myself to use a boy photo with girly-ish patterns and embellishments. The overall end result was a girly page but I scrapbooked how much I love my son so I really didn't mind. The Crate Paper Kiss Kiss collection has a valentines theme although not too overpowering so you can scrapbook anything you love in your life and let's face it my son stole my heart from day one.
I was inspired by some recent pages I have seen on Pinterest for this layout, with the triangles on opposite corners framing the photograph. I think visually it leads your eye into the photograph. I even got out the sewing machine for a wee bit of stitching!
Check out the process video here.
I used one of the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge copper charms on tis layout. I loved the diamond and I used some twine and one of the gorgeous Crate Paper Kiss Kiss tags from the BPK kit to let the charm 'hang' from the page. I have also used some of my favourite gold sequin trim from last month's BPK kit ~ ORLA.
I braved my anxieties and actually journalled on the page. On a layout about how much I loved my son I thought it would be nice to put a 'bit of me' on the page. I also used one of the gorgeous Dear Lizzy gold foam words. These are so gorgeous and I thought the title sort of had two meanings for me. In the photograph I snapped as a candid snap of my son he looks so happy, but also he makes me so happy.
I fell in love with this sequinned butterfly that came in the kit. HOW GORGEOUS. I love the black one and it looks so cute on this page. I used my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to adhere it to the page. I also used the Crate Paper Kiss Kiss rub ons from the BPK kit to add some special touches to the page. It looks like a stamp but underneath the title I added a rub on that says, "You are my sun my moon & all of my stars". I absolutely love this quote!
I hope you enjoyed this look at my layout and the first of quite a few layouts using this month's gorgeous kits. Be sure to go and check out the store where you can still grab a few of the kits and the extras available.
