Less Valentine More Love
Hello Magpies, Julie back with you again, sharing 2 more layouts using Crate Papers La La Love collection. This time I’ve tried to use it not so much for valentines layouts & as there’s so much in the ephemera packs it was pretty easy.
My first layout is using some crazy snapchat photos we all love to take. I first added some white acrylic paint, dragging it down, across the middle of the B side of Heartbeat paper & added a few turquoise splatters & sewed down a few torn papers. I layered up my photos with some of the papers & put them one on top of the other vertically on the right hand side, tucking in lots of the ephemera pieces, stickers, die cuts, chipboard & a cute paperclip. Another addition I added was a few bits from the American Crafts Journal Studio- Heidi Swapp Adventure die cut ephemera & good stuff puffy stickers, which seemed to co-ordinate really well with this collection.
My second layout is a little different from my normal style, very linear & NO mixed media!!!! That said I love how it turned out. I chose to use the flocked specialty paper as my border background, I loved the pop of pink & red, it gave, & it has a velvety texture to it. my background paper is details paper from Heidi Swapp Emerson Lane collection. I rounded off the corners & added strips of punched papers to the right hand side adding some crepe paper & velvet ribbon for texture. I put my 3 small photos, vertically, in a strip, again adding bits of ephemera around the photos. The details & real life tags both come from the Heidi Swapp Journal Studio pack.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my take using this collection & if you’ve been using it yourself please share with us on our Facebook page, we’d love to see your pages.
until next time
