I’ve got a Blessings of Home scrapbook layout to share with you for this weeks Memory Keeping Monday blog post. This is a brand new collection of products that will be available in the upcoming January to June mini catalogue.
As soon as I saw this collection my mind went to wedding/engagement photos because let’s face it when you’re planning a wedding, it’s always in the back of your mind. The Jordan’s have asked me to create several layouts from their engagement photos to display at the wedding and this will definitely be one of them. I think it’s one of my favourite layouts I’ve ever created.
To create the layout I rubbed my cajun craze ink pad across the white yardstick to create a subtle background with some colour. Then I splattered with some gold Heidi Swapp colour shine but if you have the fold shimmer paint or a gold ink refill, that will work as well.
The next step was to stamp three of these beautiful floral images and emboss them with gold embossing powder. I ended up cutting the top one apart so I could add just a little bit of the gold down at the bottom of the photos. Photos were matted with some cajun craze cardstock cut just a bit larger so it creates just a small border. The edges of the cajun cardstock were also distressed with my paper snips. I think this has become my new favourite technique lol.
Then to finish off the layout, I simply die cut a few of the complimentary dies from white and cajun and tucked them in here and there. The title is one of the greetings in the Blessings of Home stamp set. Cajun craze and basic black Stampin’ write markers were used to ink up the stamp so that I could get the two tone title.
