the book features papers and embellishments from Authentique’s Smitten line, inks and more from Clearsnap and of course, trinkets and treasures from my vintage {and new} stash! lots of loVelY touches: charms, lace, ribbons, bows, vintage bits and MORE!

this book was SO much fun to put together and i had SO many ideas that i couldn’t even use them all! you will find new techniques if you have taken any of my altered book classes before. and if you haven’t ever taken one, this is a great one to start with! lots of little details that make it fun and unique, but not overly complicated.

this valentine’s themed book is great as a gift for someone special or to keep yourself. friends, family, weddings, romances; adaptable to many different “types” of love.

crazy in love…

NO – not me, it’s a new line by REMINISCE! well, i guess i’m still “crazy in love” too! my dh, rob, has been EXTRA patient with me lately and all my assignments and deadlines!

i did a sample layout using the new line for SCRAPBOOK 911

i LOVE using black and white to set off colors – so those were the 2 accent colors i automatically reached for to design this layout. i think it makes the colors all looks so clean and CRISP!

i also like adding doodling, so there are some fun pen accents added in for good measure.

the trio of photo mats at the right were inspired by those photo booth strips, i thought it would be fun to make your own strip of lovey-dovey or goofy photos {depending on you and your hunny-bunny} to put there. this would also be a great layout to do with photos of your kids, and they probably wouldn’t mind hamming it up or making faces at the camera for photos to use there.

there are only 3 papers in the collection, but they are double sided so you get 6 designs total! i love when there are great designs on the fronts AND the backs of papers Рthen you can mix and match and use the WHOLE piece! the embellies for this line are great too! you can view the entire CRAZY IN LOVE collection  РHERE!

i’ve got more samples to share this week, so please stop back by, i know it’s been awhile since i’ve posted PROJECTS! but i’ll try to do better :)
