Always & 4ever

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a simple album I created with the Pebbles Valentine line Yours Truly. Each page simply highlights someone I love!
I used some of my favorite dies on the front of the book... the Tim Holtz Word Play and the rosette die. The wood doily is from Maya Road.
On my girls page I added just a flower a some buttons to add a little girly touch.
On my boys page I added this border with metal brads down the edge... it helps to add a masculine feel.
I hope you will come by The Crafty Scrapper and see the rest of the book and pick up the supplies to make yourself a fun book of those you love!

Head over Heels Valentine Layout

I was so excited to receive my first design team assignment for the Crafty Scrapper design team! I rushed home, pulled everything out and NOTHING! The creativity was just NOT there. I bet you have been there. When I need some help to get the creative jucies going I use sketches. You can find them on our Pintrest page, magazines and one of my favorites,

Here is the sketch I used:

Here is the finished layout:

I followed the sketch closely on this layout but sometimes I will start and it sparks an idea and I make it my own. I wanted my title to be a little bigger than on the sketch so I pulled out one of my favorite alphabet dies... the Tim Holtz Word Play die... It's a great playful font. 

I cut my chipboard and then colored the pieces with a black Copic marker.

Then I added Glossy Accents to the top of the letters. You can also use it on other parts of you page that you want to highlight.

I really like the Head Over Heeels collection by Bo Bunny... It's so so easy to put different patterned papers together. You can find this collection at the Crafty Scrapper... Come on down and I will help you put it together!
