LOVE YOU TO PIECES - Technique Tuesday

Hi there!
My friends at Technique Tuesday are having a special sale on all their Thanskgiving Stamps over the next few days! I took the opportunity to create a layout for my Life Crafted album using the beautiful Love You to Pieces stamp set and Pieces of my Heart die.

As soon as i read the sentiments of the stamp set, i knew exactly what i wanted to create and the ideal photo for it.   I pulled a paper form Citrus Twist kits and used the  Threaded Crafting Dies to create the scallop edge on the paper .

I set the picture at the center of  the page, and chose to add a  label, cut with the Essentials Stitched Labels Crafting Die Set,  to which i stamped a sentiment from the Cosmo Stamp Set .   I kept all the embellishments and papers very monochromatic so that the picture will stand out on the page.

I decided to create a pocket page for this layout, and used a 3x8" insert to add my title and journal cards.  I backed each space with the same paper and then used  the PIeces of My Heart Crafting Die  to create the puzzled heart die cut, and glued it to the card.  I then stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock and glued it to the heart outside of the pocket.  I just added a few enamel dots to complete this card.

For the journal card, i used a pre-made card (CTK) backed it with the same paper used on the picture page, and then used the Essential Stitched Label Dies set to add a subtitle to the card using the Love You to Pieces Stamp set.  

Just love how this turned out, and how the lovely monochromatic background brings forward all the details in the stamps and die cuts.   Remember to stop by the Technique Tuesday Shop to take advantage of their sale on all Thanksgiving stamps.

Let me know if you have questions on how this came together,
