"Love" and "Cherish"

Hello my scrappy friends! I just finished this layout and thought I would share! No cricut on this one, for those of you who are cricut-y like me. Scrapaganza, the local store I work at just got in the new MME Lost & Found line of papers and embellishments, and I fell in love with the Union Square papers. Oh my my my! I knew as soon as I saw this "love" paper that I had to use it for one of our wedding photos! So I used two sheets of the printed papers. One of the sheets went to matting and making the spiral rose flowers. I also picked up a coordinating package of their brads which are sooo yummy! Some of the brads even come with coordinating flowers all ready to go! There is also one additional title tag which I used up at the top, as I really did consider that day to be perfect. The only thing on this layout that is not from this MME line is the pearly lace around the flowers. That came off the ribbon rack at the store. :)

This simple layout was so easy to put together but I really like how it turned out. The shaped paper and the border were cut with Scrapaganza's Accu-cut machine. The word "Cherish" was created on my gypsy using the Songbird cartridge, welded and cut on my cricut.  I also used light green glimmermist, Distress Fired Brick ink to stamp the flourishes, a red slick writer pen and a "Crafters Workshop" mask/doodle template to do the "stitched" circle. Prima flowers were stamped and misted, and I punched tiny flowers from the remains of the papers that had been cut into the background shapes. Bling for flower centers and some light green tulle finished off the embellishment.  This layout was created as a kit for the store.

Thanks for stopping by!
