My Sweet Valentine

I have added these photos to my Project Life Week 7 but I just love them so much that they truly deserve a layout on its own. I started by cutting a big heart on a piece of scrap paper to make my own stencil. Then started adding splattering with different colors of Mister Huey (Buttercup & Dewey) + Heidi Swapp Color Shine (Georgie Peach, Sweet Cherry, Mustard, Tropicana Teal, Mint Green & Primrose). I finally change my sewing machine thread from the boring white to a thicker black thread and added a stitched heart as my background. It looks more like doodling than machine stitching though. 

I only work with everything in my Crate Paper Fourteen collection kit just because I want a more cohesive look on this layout. Using the trendiest color combination right now which is Pink & Teal. 

Wood grain thickers is my current favorite now =) The rose on the right is a stamp from Paper Smooches that I stamped with white embossing powder and color with some awesome Distress Markers. 

Just keep layering and layering. Oh, did I mention I love using hot glue gun when I want to create more texture / depth to my layout? 

That's all for this simple valentine-themed layout. I have already send this layout to Crate Paper to join their RED challenge. Have you scrapped the photos that you have taken during this year valentine's day? Thanks for looking. XoXo.
