a few close-ups:
Tip 1. When you can’t find the desired background (paper) use a die-cutting machine to create one, like this one with all the hearts.
Tip 2. When you’re using mainly one colour for your layout, use elements with a different texture (like wood veneer, twine, metal) to create more depth.
Tip 3. For a fun effect use the same photo twice and place one behind the other at a slight angle.
