Valentines Day + Storyline
With Valentines Day just around the corner I want to share a quick and easy way to get some of those memories of a Loved one down in your scrapbooks! It is easy with 2 simple techniques!!
1 Using the Storyline collection (and in particular the Wedding and Little Moments Deck of Days cards) which can be found at your local Michaels stores.
2 Scraplift a technique from a scrapbooker you admire!
Let me share the details.
I started with one of the 12 x 12 base pages from the Storyline collection and as mentioned earlier the Wedding and Little moments Deck of Days cards.
I then created a base under my photo with cards that coordinated with the colors in my photo. I adhered them down and then added my photo with pop dots for some extra dimension.
I added some gold stickers and a touch of washi to some of the cards for some added interest.
I felt my layout looked a little bare so I turned to one of my favorite layouts from my fellow media Team member Maggie Massey who created this layout in 2017. I adored the circular technique with the pen and colored pencil so I decided to have a go myself and add something similar to my layout.
I grabbed a dinner plate and drew a couple of circles in black pen around the cards. I overlapped some of the lines to create some closed areas. I then took some of my Jane Davenport Magic Wand pencils that again coordinated with the colors in my photo and colored in some of the closed in areas.
I love how the circular element frames my photo and cards. To add some text around my circular element I adhered some of my Vintage Instax clear stickers from the Filler Cards set along the inside edge of the circle. The pretty floral sticker is apart of the Botanical Sticker kit.
For journaling I used one of the Botanical Sticker kits from the Storyline collection. I kept the sticky backing on and used a large circle punch to cut out the circle. I ran it through my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter then I slipped it under my raised photo for some interactive journaling.
The best thing of all is that the layout took me less that 30 minutes to put together. With my busy schedule I can’t ask for anything better than that. The Storyline collection makes it so easy! Remember grab some photos of your loved ones this Valentines Day and get those memories down in your scrapbooks forever!
