This is my first layout for Made With Love for January 2014. I finally broke out my Cameo and start die cutting some white card stocks to be used as embellishments / titles for my pages. Can you believe this layout was created while my 9-month old was sitting on my lap? When I was arranging the papers and embellishments, he would try to help (as usual) and at times shook his head. I wonder of he show disagreement with the arrangement of the elements? >_< Who knows he might turn out to be a great scrapbooker when he grow up since he has been scrapping next to me since baby.
I Love the water-colour washed-out effect on the chevron paper by Pink Paislee. So I arranged the three die cut 'HELLO' and add some water-colour subtly by following the colour scheme of the patterned paper.
As usual, I would layer patterned papers under my photo as photo mat and cluster embellishments (die cuts, stickers etc) around the photo. And most of the time, layering stickers or embellies over my photo is a must for me. Apparently I am not too worried about affecting my photo in the future, it is just one of my scrapbooking habit that i NEED to layer over the photo. Do you do that or you always try to avoid putting anything on your photo?
And here are the 2 love themed cards that I made using my DT kit. Love the ampersand papers from Studio Calico and also Crate Paper 'Love Note'. I have always prone to create simple and less bulky cards because they are easier to be mailed.
I hope you have a fun and great weekend ahead! I can't wait for tomorrow because we are going for a mini getaway this weekend. It is our very first family trip (just the 3 of us) since baby was born! LEt's see how we cope and also have fun travelling!
