Hello!  My name is Lorilei Murphy, and I am from just north of Calgary, Alberta!  I am thrilled to be joining you as a guest here at the amazing Scrapbook & Cards Today blog!  Since it is the month of February, I chose to make a layout all about love!  I am using the fun and sweet La La Love collection by Crate Paper and some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons!


Supplies: Crate Paper La La Love:  344551 THICKERS – FIRST KISS /  344552 THICKERS – MY SWEET /  344553 CHIPBOARD STICKERS /  344554 6×12 STICKERS /  344560 SMALL EMBELLISHMENTS / Vicki Boutin Art Crayons

I started with a 12×12 white cardstock background for my layout.  I knew I wanted to add some touches of mixed media, so I primed it with a coat of gesso.  I considered the idea of using the Vicki Boutin Cherry Tart paint but I 1. chickened out 2. thought it would be over the top crazy! I thought about my options and decided pink would be the best way to go!

I mixed three art crayons (red/peach/pink) on a piece of packaging and added a spritz of water.  I then flipped the packaging over onto my background and smushed it around lightly in the area my photo would be placed.  With the leftover paint, I added splatters by loading a brush and tapping it around the page.  I kept the splatters around the photo area and then in a vertical strip.


Once my background was all dry I added my photo.  I backed it with a piece of foam for dimension and added a doily and a floral cut out from white paper.  To the top of the photo in the white space area, I added two super cute x & o paper clips, a speech bubble (with pop dots) and a dimensional glitter heart.


Next, I moved onto my title.  I originally had the title with all the cute pink Thickers, and then I found the chipboard la la la love you a piece which fit in the love spot perfectly!  In my opinion, it adds a unique spin to the title.  I finished up the page by adding silver glittered hearts, chipboard hearts, puffy sticker hearts and also sprinkled on some of the confetti paper hearts included in the collection.

I love that this page is just about love and great for any time of the year, but made using a Valentine collection!  Thank you so much for letting me share my page today!!
