Bestie Love

Scrapbook layout created for The Cut Shoppe   -  BESTIE LOVE -

Hello friends!

In a few days we will be celebrating Valentine's Day.  Can you believe how fast time is running!!!   I guess you can say love is in the air, especially when you see all the hearts, pink and red popping everywhere.   With that in mind, I set out to document a picture of my daughter and  the baby sharing some tender moments together for the Cut Shoppe blog.

The "Be Mine" cut file was perfect to create the background for this project.  I simply welded the XO image a few times, and cut it out of white card stock.   The empty spaces were backed with papers from Clique Kits's Love Always kit (it features Crate Paper's Heart Day collection).  In addition, pink heart vellum were stitched on top of the full hearts in the background.

The sweet picture of my young ones was framed with pieces of ephemera, card stock stickers and exclusive flair from the Clique Kits's Love Always Kit.

The "Friends Forever" cut file was used to create the title of this page.   By simply adding an offset to the word images, the title welds beautifully into a single image.  To add the stitching, the edges of the word were perforated, then the inside was colored with watercolor pencils (a bit of water helps to spread the color in the words).   Finally a few lines of journal, some ink splatters complete this project.  Here is a look at the final layout:

I am not a"pink" person, but the colors in this project just look beautiful all together.   Don't forget to check the Cut Shoppe's Etsy store to pick these cut files, and the many other designs available.   For more information on the Love Always kit ( at this moment it has already sold out) you are welcome to visit Clique Kits  to check what they are stocking on their shelves.

I am always  just a comment away of you have any questions on how this came together.

Thanks for visiting today!
