not loving that.
but loving that i will finally be able to wear my ring again.

take a look at this must-scraplift page!

[ Shapes | XOXO (doily, feb 14, hanging hearts, heart tag + clothespin / Life Additions: Backgrounds (petal background) / Christmas Countdown (tag) / This+That: Summertime (butterfly) / This+That: Family (instant frame, short tag) / Nichol also says she used: ‘Long skinny tag from the Silhouette store that Kerri designed’ ;) ]

Here’s what else Nichol has to say:

The color combination of cream/red/aqua/pink is one of my very favorites for any kind of scrapbook layout and especially for Valentine’s themed pages. I wanted to keep the emphasis of my design on the photos and embellishments to I purposely chose a cream patterned paper background and die cut the tags from white cardstock and then added layers and layers of die cut embellishments and buttons, etc., that were colorful and really “popped” off the page.  I viewed each tag as it’s own “mini scrapbook page” and worked on each individually before adhering them to the page for the collective tag background look. To make the tags a bit more interesting, I ran them through my Big Shot using Papertrey Ink Impression Plates to add lovely texture. Adding a die cut shadow to many of the die cut designs with dark brown cardstock helps give them dimension and draws your eye to the the colorful die cut pieces.

sooooo love.
