When I first saw the More Amore Designer Paper and the Hearts a Flutter stamp set I had Valentine’s Day on the brain. And in fact I originally got both for a Valentine’s Day treat class I was holding earlier this year.
But as I started going through pictures and wanting to scrap this picture from Leadership convention with my mom, I saw the quote printed on the paper and thought it would be just right.
The quote is
A loving heart is the truest wisdom – Charles Dickens
Perfect for a picture of my mom who flew out to Orlando, FL with me from Seattle, WA to share the learning and excitement of Leadership and my first time being eligible to attend Manager’s Reception.
So with my base paper chosen, I started adding embellishments and it turned out the Hearts a Flutter stamp set and framelits fit my mood just right.
I grabbed some scrap fabric from the retired Springtime Vintage collection to add textured borders instead of my usual paper layering. Then I tucked in some banners I cut out using the coordinating framelits.
For the journaling block, I just created an extended photo mat with Very Vanilla paper to give me space for my writing and then added some stamping and a little bit of ribbon to separate the journaling from the picture.
It turned out to be a fairly quick layout but one that I love for the great memories it captures!
