'All You Need is Love' Layout - My Creative Scrapbook Kit - Basic Grey True Love - Prima

Hi again!  Here's my 2nd layout using the gorgeous
 Limited Edition Kit from My Creative Scrapbook,
for February, still available for sale HERE.

See yesterday's post for the full list of kit contents
 and the kit image. The Basic Grey "True Love" papers
are so amazing - they all co-ordinate SO well that it makes
creating a breeze!  I just loved putting these pages together!

In the photo above you can see that I inked the edges
 of the papers using 'Knotted Wood' by Prima, which
was a perfect match. 

 I also used a plastic vintage doily as a stencil, together
with some Golden modelling paste & various different
shades of pink, white & cream mists on my background &
 emphasized the circular shape with brads.

There are so many pretty elements, transparencies and die-cuts
in this kit that you really are spoilt for choice & can mix and
 match to your heart's content as I have done here.  I decided to
 go with black & white photos here as that ensured that there was
 no clashing with the photographs, which I printed out 5 x 7
 inches so they still remained 'centre-stage'.

I'm still without my computer so have no means of printing my
 journaling so used my dymo again - I like the way the glossy
 black matches with my photos.  I inked up the cream flowers
 a bit so they were a little softer.

I used one of my Martha Stewart punches above, some Prima
 inkpads, 'Knotted Wood' & 'Old Rose, plus my dymo & another 
die-cut not from the kit. {QuicKutz Antique Doily Die}.

             I used this sketch from The Scrapbook Store as my starting point for this layout.
