Here's the last of the layouts I made for the Two Peas in a Bucket CHA Challenges (I managed to enter four of them). This one uses a lot of the Crate Paper Fourteen Valentines-themed collection, which I got hold of recently, and am in love with! The Two Peas challenge was to use 6 of an item, so I used 6 Crate Paper phrase stickers and 6 Papermania Shimmer Dome hearts.
The photo is of my son on his first trip to the beach, when he was just a few weeks old, and he spent the whole time asleep on a blanket!
I liked the bold chevron-style paper, as it looks like a big arrow pointing down at my baby. But I softened the look a little by sprinkling some grey and gold mists, and adding a few drops of Gold Liquid Pearls.
The picture melts my heart each time I look at it, because he was tiny then, so I added lots of love-hearts on my page. The larger ones are cut from a piece of Fourteen paper, and stitched a few times through the middle, with a couple of label stickers on top... it looks a bit like a sandcastle flag:
The photo is layered on some white linen. I pulled some threads off to make it fray, to echo the edges of the blanket:
I need more tags with a ledger pattern - it's so much easier to write on lines:
Do you have and Valentines themed supplies? In the UK we don't do a whole big 'thing' for Valentines, so I won't be making tons of cards or decorations. But I think I'll be able to use the Fourteen collection on other projects too - there's still lots more hearts I can cut from that sheet of paper! x
