Love to Love You

Hello Everyone!
Love is in the air! Can you smell it? I do! June is usually filled with weddings! Today, I am sharing a layout I intended on giving to my Pastors for their wedding anniversary…BUT I love it so much that I may keep it since it does match the living room d├ęcor LOL! Because of my dilemma, I did not include a photo yet~
On the layout, I went with a monochromatic color scheme using only white, ivory, beige and neutral tones. I used several BossKut files! I used the Loopy Doily, Vine 0983, and a piece from the Damask Frame 0378. I really like how BossKut files can help embellish a page by using them as a standalone focal point or mixing them with other embellishments!  On this one, I did a little bit of both. I must say, there is a lot of layering and dimension on here!



The Loopy Doily has those beautiful loops; I didn’t want to do too much to it. I simply offset it and then embossed Happily Ever After on the center of the doily using white embossing powder. Then a photo mat was added for a photo. Tucked behind the doily are a piece of velum with both dry and wet embossing and another piece from the paper collection I used for the pattern paper.

The Vine 0983 is perfect to fill in for flower sprays. That is exactly what I did here! I cut two of them on my BossKut Gazelle. Then I used an embossing folder to add texture to them. I layered a spray of flowers on top. I also used the stem from the Damask Frame 0379 as a filler. The frame was perfect to use as the base for the flowers!


I hear you all asking about that lace! I am getting to it J Now that beautiful lace was in my DT package from BossKut! Isn’t luscious? As much as it pained me, I used two layers of that gorgeous lace! I also added two rows of pearls on top.

The charm in the corner and in the heart in the flower spray was also in my DT package. Because of the colors of the layout, I painted the charms with Picket Fence Crackle Paint and sealed them with an acrylic spray. This gave them an antique feel. I used the crackle paint around the pattern paper to give it a distressed look.

That is the gist of the layout! I hope I inspired you to pull out those wedding photos and get busy! Don’t forget to pop by BossKut.com for more projects, supplies, files and inspiration. Thank you for stopping by, Kenya
