February 14th-Sketch for SOUS and BLOG HOP w/ Scraps of Darkness DT

Happy Valentines Day! Hope you have some wonderful plans lined up for the day!

Welcome to a cross promo blog hop from Stuck on U Sketches and Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance Design Teams!

February 14-16
midnight to midnight

Here is the beautiful sketch that Leah created for this week. We have all created layouts based on this sketch and Scraps of Darkness teams have created theirs with the awesome kits from their shop
I really love the heart and it is so appropriate for the day.
Here is my layout based on the sketch:

I mainly used the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate paper to create this layout. I love the pink and aqua with touches of silver that I could incorporate on this layout. I first cut out the large heart with my Silhouette. I then hand stitched around the heart with pink thread. It took time but I love how it looks. After that I had a lot of fun layering all the different embellishments from this collection. I also used some enamel dots and chalkboard stickers from MME. I used silver glitter tape and silver sequins from my December Daily kit from Studio Calico. I also cut out two smaller hearts with my silhouette and embossed them with silver and pink glitter embossing powder. I chose a photo of my family for this. I kept the journaling to a minimum as this photo taken by my friend who is also a photographer says it all. Below is a close up of some of the embellishments.

At this point I want to tell you that you have an opportunity to win a lot of scrappy goodness:
  • I will be giving away a $10 gift card from a shop of your choice Two Peas / Studio Calico/ Amazon to a lucky winner who leaves a comment for me on this post and who is also a follower of my blog. I will select the winner randomly from the comments. I will announce the winner on Friday, February 21.
