Scrapbook Layout  - Loved-

Valentine's Day has come and gone, but in my case, it has left me a pocket full of moments to document.  This picture is one of many that i took while my daughter cuddled the baby (our dog).  So i went ahead and build a layout around this picture.

Simple hand stitching to the non-matted cuts enhances the cut's details,
as well as creates texture to the piece.

The cut chosen for this layout comes from The Cut Shoppe, it is called Hello Love.  I used the 8.5x11 inch option for the cut, and blew it up to fit into a 11x11 inch white cardstock.  I proceeded to back alternate rows of the cut with papers from the "Hello Love" collection from Crate Paper.  In addition, using pink sewing thread, the inside of the  non-matted  hearts was hand stitched  -i love adding texture to pieces-. Using foam dots it was attached to a Dear Lizzy's Serendipity collection patterned paper that served as the layout's mat.

The foam dots create lift in the layout, and add dimension to the cut-out.

Using papers from the Hello Love collection, the picture was matted and layered.  The title was created using a simple brush scrip font from the Silhouette store, and cut on gold card-stock.  

A few foam dots help lift the title above the matted picture..

Since the background cut out is very detailed, there was no need to add lots of decorations to enhance the picture, instead a simple tag with some fuzzy-cut pieces was added.

The cut pieces come from different patterned paper collections.

To create a visual triangle to the piece, a small banner and some little flags were added using a paper clip from Heidi Swapp's Memory Planner collection.

The little flags were inserted in the spaces between the papers, hence continuing
the layered look of the picture.

Finally, a few drops of black color shine, gel dots, and some  lines of journaling complete the layout.
I hope you like it, and it inspire you to play around with a cut file.... See You Soon
