XO | Scraptastic Club Sunday Morning Kit

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!! And? Did someone spoil you?? I got a card and flowers and those made my day as my hubby is very against all those "commercial" days....

Now on to the project I wanted to share. Last Friday the Scraptastic Club February "Sunday Morning" kits arrived and I couldn't help myself, I just had to start scrapping straight away! I used both the  main kit, add-on and digital cut file.

So here's what I made. The photo was taken when we were on vacation in France the year before last. I adore those old French doors and am always taking pictures of them, in this case with my youngest in front. 

When I started this layout the Scraptastic "Heart Strings" paper was the first paper I chose. I love it so much and had a hard time deciding whether or not to use it in the way I did, as that meant I wouldn't be able to use the back at all, which was the beautiful light grey paper with the small hearts! In the end I decided to go for it and have to say, I don't have any regrets at all, lol!  

Okay, after choosing the light blue "Heart Strings" paper I cut a thin strip from two sides and adhered it on top of a sheet of white cardstock. Next I used my Silhouette Cameo and cut the Sunday Morning digital cut file for the background (size 11" x 11") and adhered 2.5" circles behind all the hearts which I punched from Maggie Holmes' Bloom collection "Moments" paper. I adhered this on top of the light blue paper. 

Next came the photo which I matted on a piece of Crate Paper's Little You collection "Loved" paper and on a glassine bag which was used to hold some of the embellishments in the kit. Next I cut the black chalkboard label in half and tucked one under the top of the photo and one at the bottom. I adhered this to my page and started decorating.

I used some of Crate Paper's "Hello Love" chipboard stickers, one of Heidi Swapp's fabric bows and one of Scraptastic exclusive wood veneer hearts to decorate the top of the photo.

And for the bottom of the photo I chose again some of the fabulous chipboard stickers from Crate, a sticker from WeR and the "XO" Thickers . Last but not least I added stitching, a few drops of Color Shine and a date stamp and I was done!
