Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but I’m still celebrating with a couple layouts using My Mind’s Eye Now & Then collection. I’m so in love with this collection! I love the rich, vibrant color palettes and fun patterns. And as always with My Mind’s Eye, the embellishments do not disappoint.
Supplies: Now & Then collection— Dorothy “Pretty” Blossom paper and “Wild & Free” Spirited paper, Dorothy “Celebrate” chipboard elements, Dorothy “Wild & Free” enamel dots, Milo “Documented” decorative buttons, Dorothy “Celebrate” and Mildred “Oh Happy Day” alpha/word stickers. Record It, Just Splendid collection—wood dots. Other—Silhouette Cameo and Studio Calico Mister Huey.
This first layout uses my most favorite photo of my husband and I……he was just my fiancé at the time. Shout out to my college roommate Laura Love ,the crazy talented photographer. Thank you, Laura!
Because I decided to use both a color photo and a black and white photo, I decided to split the page in half. I backed the black and white photo with lots of color, and placed the color photo on plain white for balance.
I love fun titles like this one—song titles are always fun to incorporate into layouts (song title thanks to Queen). I actually cut the word “crazy” onto that pink and white striped paper, but it didn’t stand out enough for me.
Instead of going to find some colored cardstock and cutting again, I decided to just spray it with a coordinating ink color. If you look really close, you can still see the stripes.
I used the matching chipboard flowers on top of the patterned paper and added a few of those awesome wood dots from the Record It Just Splendid collection. Don’t be surprised if you see them on every single one of my projects until I run out!
Supplies:Now & Then collection— Izzy 6x6 paper pad, Izzy “Happenings” enamel dots, Izzy “Boys” label stickers. Record It Just Splendid collection—wood dots. Other—Silhouette Cameo, Studio Calico Mister Huey, Amercian Crafts alpha stickers, and pen
Stripes can sometimes be completely boring, but that’s not the case with this collection. I love the stripes in Now & Then. They are perfectly distressed and colored.
I pulled three coordinating sheets from the Izzy 6x6 paper pad. I arranged all three sheets on my 12 x 12 Cameo cutting mat and cut all the hearts out at once. I went straight to my sewing machine and just sewed on the hearts one by one instead of adhering with adhesive first.
I didn’t want to overthink the placement, so this method worked really well for me. I love the simplicity and all the white space. And there’s those wood dots again!
Anyone else still in the mood to scrap that gushy love stuff? Thanks so much for stopping by today!
