Hello Everybody! Carrie here, today! Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner I thought it would be fun to share a spread in my Project Life album inspired by love and hearts and unicorns!!
This spread is also one example of how I like to add patterned paper into my 6x12" Project Life. I don't know about you, but patterned paper might be my favorite scrapbook product, and since there are so many gorgeous papers in the Everyday Wishes Kit I'll take any chance I can to add it in ; )
As you can see the left side of the page is a full 6x12" photo, but you could easily replace it with three 4x6" photos if you like and I think that would also look great. On the right side I used the lovely unicorn patterned paper from the Everyday Wishes kit to fill up the whole page.....and I think I should mention, I don't always embellish on top of a full patterned paper page. Sometimes I only add a single embellishment in the middle or a number or a word. However, for this spread I knew I wanted to add in hearts since I love my daughter to bits, along with the phrase "You're a limited edition" to go along with my quirky photo.
The kit came with these awesome black and white word die-cuts and two of them were "you" and "are". So I decided to change my phrasing just slightly to "You are a limited edition." I used some older Dear Lizzy thickers for the rest of the words, and I like how they are gold with pink underneath to compliment the rest of the purple on the page. To help make it all stand out, I also cut some white bits from one of the patterned papers and layered them under a few of the thickers with holes.
The unicorn theme was perfect for this spread since I was talking about a "limited edition", so to emphasize it I popped up the unicorn die-cut towards the top of the page. Next, I started cutting a bunch of different hearts out of matching papers from the kit. For the solid blue and solid purple, I used one of the cut apart sheets, and for the hearts with the unicorns on them I used the second half of the background patterned paper. They are all layered with most of them popped up.
At this point I knew I was pretty much done but wanted to add in a little more black. So I found this little blue script heart die-cut outlined in black and tucked it into the "y" in you....and that's it! I know it's simple, but I don't make the time for proper layouts these days. So a photo, pretty paper, a simple phase, and some hearts in my Project Life album feels great!
Thanks for taking a look, and I'll see you next time.
