Loving it up with La La Love

Hello Magpies, Julie back with you again today sharing 2 layouts using the lovely valentines collection ‘La La Love’ from Crate paper. I just love Crate’s collections & this one didn’t disappoint, great colours, masses of embellishments & lots of love thrown in.

For my first layout ‘Love Notes’ I die cut lots of different sized envelopes out of the 6×8 paper pad & layered them up the page coming out of a large envelope. I first added this to white cardstock but then changed my mind & added it to black, making the colours & embellishments really pop. I tucked in my photo & just kept adding lots of the embellishments ¬†available in the collection, stickers, die cuts, paper clips, chipboard & puffy stickers. a few gold splatters finish off the page.



My second layout ” Be Mine’ plays on the word ‘Be’ using the cute little bee to highlight this.

I first ripped a piece of sugar, sugar paper & added it to the top & coated the whole page with clear gesso & once dry added a few colours of distress oxide inks’ coming down the page. I wanted to use a different colour palette on this layout so chose the blue & ochre papers with just a touch of pink & red.

I die cut a few different sizes of octagons & glued them to the page going down to the bottom right. I put my photo at the top left & added the embellishments on & under the octagons & stitched a flight line, from the bee to the bottom of the page.



Thanks for taking a look at my layouts today & I’ll be back in a couple of weeks with 2 more layouts using this collection.
