Valentine’s Layout

Hello everyone!

We’re back with an inspirational post and our third project for Rainbow Craftykari! What a delight:)!

Today we’re here to inspire you with a shabby chic layout and with Valentine’s day nearing, we though love would be a fabulous theme to work with!

Here’s the layout that we created for this one!


For this layout we chose one 12×12 sheet with a pastel pink and floral elements as our base. We picked various sizes of pattern papers for our layering. If you notice this layout is a three picture layout- one big and two small. We assembled our papers and photos and made rough marks once happy with the arrangement. We then made cut marks on the top right and bottom left of the page, tore it and folded it like draping it. We distressed all our edges with distress inks. In the peep through places, we added another piece of paper underneath. We mounted our base piece onto white cardstock. We distressed the edges of all our paper pieces and photos for the vintage look. We then chose our chipboard pieces, painted them gold and added them onto our layout, some above and some peeking from beneath a picture. We added some texture using modelling paste and a stencil around our arrangement. Once content we adhered everything down in place. We then adhered a few flowers going with our layout.

Its pastel, its subtle, its romantic and its love!
