Gabrielle's February Page Kit!

My Photo
 
 
"When I think if February, the first thing that comes to mind is Valentine's Day, which is known for "love" themed projects. Hearts and flowers as well as pink, white, and red are common elements associated with the holiday.
For my page kit, I wanted to go for papers with a vintage shabby chic elegance that I find especially appealing. I like the how grown up these are compared to the more cutesy quality of many Valentine papers. Of course, if you have small children, you may want to go more in that direction.


I chose papers from three different manufacturers, but which all have the same distressed look.




Papers include:


Kaisercraft - Sweet Nothings Collection "With Love"
Crate Paper - Paper Heart Collection "Define", "Delicate", and "Valentine"
Glitz Designs - Pretty in Pink "Roses" and "Toile"
Prima - Madeline "Beautima" (half sheet)
Kraft Cardstock - Bazzill


I included embellishments which matched the color and feel of the papers.




Embellishments include:


Clear Stamps - Inkadinkado
Thickers alphabets "Rockabye" & "Marquise"
Webster's Florettes Princess Petals
Glitz Designs Pretty in Pink Giant Rhinestones
MME Miss Caroline Pins & Buttons
Jillibean Soup Sugar Picks
Jillibean Soup Corrugated Butterflies
Webster's Pages Whimsey Heart (pink)
Rose transparency (Glitz)
Tulle Ribbon


My sketch is from Page Maps - February, 2012. I like how the background is split right down the middle, and how there are multiple layers behind the photo. This sketch could easily be adapted to any style of page.

  3. Great idea to make Valentine's theme more adult than cutesy. Saw your page on your blog today, and it's very pretty!
