I know it's now March, but I still have a few Valentines-y inspired projects to share, starting with this layout featuring Kerri Bradford Studio Files. This layout isn't really a "Valentine's Day" layout but rather a layout featuring something that my daughter loved when she was 2 - kittens! Don't forget to scrapbook those memories of the things that you, your kids, grandkids (or whomever is special to you) love. With so many wonderful heart and love-themed products available whether it's February or not, you're sure to find just the right accent for your next scrapbook page!
I added love-themed product to this page with the "love" word bubble from Studio Calico, the chalkboard bubble sticker with the mini heart, the die cut hearts from Kerri's XOXO kit and the "love it" phrase from Kerri's Need Directions kit.KBS Kits Used (also linked in the supply list below):
- Need Directions? ("love it" phrase)
- Here Kitty Kitty ("meow", paw prints, kitty)
- XOXO (hearts)
- Life Additions #2 (file folder card)
- negative frame Freebie
Here lately I am addicted to using negative frame die cuts on my pages, especially for framing up older photos (pre-digital days!). The ability to resize them to suit my specific photo/layout needs makes them an ideal way of emphasizing the photos, even when they aren't the best quality of photos. This free file Kerri put up ages ago continues to be one of my all-time favorites! The original has a die cut "u." along the bottom (wider) edge and one of the frames has the phrase "love this" along one edge. With just a tiny bit of manipulating I ungrouped the image, then removed the letter "u". I duplicated the plain cut out frame and replaced the frame with the phrase with the plain one. Then regrouped the image for a bit more "plain jane" negative strip!
To customize these even further, I added one of Kerri's more recent designs "love it" from her Need Directions kit to the bottom of one of the filmstrips.
I only had five photos, but six open frames... that sixth frame is the perfect spot to add my journaling! Instead of just printing my journaling on a piece of cardstock and sticking it behind the frame I resized Kerri's file folder to fit the frame and die cut it from some ledger paper. Then I printed my journaling and added some stamping to make the journaling not only a necessary element on my page, but an interesting and fun one to look at as well!
