Must Be Love

 
This layout was lots of fun to do and only uses one small strip of patterned paper (DCWV) and one strip of plain paper (red) on plain white cardstock. It's a great layout to use up your leftover pieces of paper. I punched a circle with a border from the red paper using a circle border punch from Fiskars and placed it under the stamped image (journalling stamp from KairserCraft). I have stamped the same thing several times so I could cup out elements of the stamps and pop these up on the page. I used left over alphabet stickers for the title and then hand sewed part of the title. I used an embroidery thread and have purposefully made the sewing very rustic. The final touch was a rub on (Priceless Moments). Which was a left over from another project.

Every now and then it's a good idea to go through all those left overs and see what you can create with them. I know it's hard when there are so many yummy new goodies in store each week but it's really the most economical way to go.  Also when you finish a layout and all those co-ordinating elements are lying on your table still make a card or gift tag. It's easy as the items you have out already match perfectly and it means there aren't too many items going into your leftovers stash.
