The Color of Love

Even though Valentine's Day has come and gone, I'm sure you have some great photos from the Holiday, that you are ready to get on a layout.  And, if you're like me, when you think of Valentine's Day, you probably think of the colors Pink and Red!  Well, that just happens to be our challenge this month at Love My Tapes.  You can play along with us this month for the chance to win some awesome Love My Tapes goodies!  If you missed the details of the challenge, check them out HERE.

Tina did a totally adorable layout, to start off this month's challenge and I had the chance to play along too.  Here is what I came up with for the Pink and Red challenge:





I chose a light Pink background paper from one of my DCWV stacks and mixed in some Red heart patterned paper from Pebbles Inc.  Then I started accenting with Pink and Red embellishments and pulled in some White, Black, and Gray to add a little contrast to my page.  I used several of my Love My Tapes Washi's on this page, that were perfect with this color scheme.  Can you spot them?  I have the Pink Washi with the White doodle lines across two of my hearts, and it is also included as a border under my photo with the Pink & Red patterned Washi and the With Love Washi.  And I added one more of the Washi Tapes, that fit in perfectly with this theme...the heart pattern at the bottom of my page.

And, here are a few other fun facts about this layout...I incorporated a few non-scrappy supplies on this one.  I have discovered a little addiction to the coffee stirring sticks.  The ones on this layout, are some that I "picked up" on our visits to Krispy Kreme.  :)  I wanted to use them on this page and add the heart shapes to the top, for a fun embellishment on my layout.  And the glassine bag that they are inside of, came with one of my Kits from Paper Issues.  Cassie uses them to hold the little embellishments that are included in the Kits and they are perfect for saving and using on your layouts or projects.  And I have one more bit of packaging used on this page...the little "hello there" tag, was fussy cut from the Ormolu packaging.  It fit in perfectly with the Pink and Red challenge, so I just had to add it to my page!!

Supplies Used:  Patterned Paper:  DCWV, Pebbles Inc., & Studio Calico; Wood Veneers & Spray Mist:  Studio Calico; Washi Tape;  Love My Tapes:  Flair Buttons:  Ormolu; Stamps:  Maya Road; Ink:  Stampin' Up; Baker's Twine:  The Twinery; Embossing:  Sizzix Big Shot; Other:  Vellum & Silhouette Files
