New Year - New PageMaps Calendar
Emma provided us with Pink Paislee's Snow Day collection, and baker's twine.
I have to tell you I love this paper line, the grunged up look of the snowmen and mittens was perfect and combining pink, red together with blue and brown made for so many possibilities. This month the technique is "unique titles"!
For my First Layout I'm calling it "I Love U" and I have replaced the 3 photos from the sketch with one long photos (you all know how much I don't like multiple photo layouts) I chose a photo from my wedding, as it was the only photo I have with both my Hubby and I looking totally in love... usually it's me behind the camera taking shots of the kids, or him taking shots of me and the kids, rarely do we get a shot of just the two of us together. So, for this layout I played up the red and the hearts in the paper. I used an assortment of Harmonie chipboard embellishments which I heat embossed with a metallic powder. A Prima flower and a Prima centre. For my title, I layered circles and used Basic Grey chipboard letters and strung them together on a jute banner. On two of the hearts in the snowman paper I used red stickles and then glossy accents to bring it up a notch! I apologize for the quality of the lighting on the photo, it is not exactly how I wanted it.
