Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - February LOVE

Welcome to  February Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop with our theme being Love.
Most people associate Feb 14 with LOVE but I celebrate LOVE all the time,
anytime of the year - any moment that arises that I feel LOVE.

So this Scrapbook layout was created as a second page to go with this layout
You may be starting the Blog Hop with me - Shaz from Queensland Australia.
We have 8 talented Scrapbookers from all over the world here today to show you
what LOVE means to them... Unfortunately for me today I haven't printed the photos.
I am sure that if you joined me from Cheryl Taylor Blog she will have an AMAZING layout to share with you

I used products from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalogue Jan-June 2020
I am featuring the LOVE suite in the catalogue - From My Heart Suite
Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Red and Pink Foil accented Designer Series Paper,
Heartfelt Bundle, From My Heart Faceted Gems and Detailed Hearts Die
As well as products from the Annual Catalogue

I found the sketch from a group
that I set up exclusively for scrapbooking with
Stampin' Up! products.
Check it out here Scrapbooking Global - Stampin' Up!
Every month we have a Challenge to inspire you, this month it is a sketch to create a layout

Delys Cram used a Page Maps Sketch this month.

So because I had already created a layout with these products before I thought 
why not do the 2nd page to match it, so this sketch came to life...AND I Love it!!
I find it so much easier to create a layout if I have a sketch to go by, how about you?

Using all products that co-ordinate together takes away the guessing game...
Makes it go together without too much second guessing yourself.
So many heart elements in this corner...I chose to use Flirty Flamingo Cardstock
to create the journalling tag created with the Detailed Tag Topper Punch from the
Annual Catalogue and I couldn't find the matching Real Red Double Stitched Satin Ribbon for the tag pull so I used the beautiful Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon
Aren't these products so beautiful? I took a lil while to be convinced with these products
as I already had lots of heart papers and punches BUT apparently I needed more LOL

So here is the finished layout minus the photos of my husband and myself
I have to get them from my Best Friend whose Wedding I was a part of...

two years ago...Whoopsie

Here is the matching layouts side by side <3
Do you create layouts that match each other? I seem to do it a lot...

I used some of the same products from the first layout, like the
Swirly Frames Stamp Set and Stitched Be Mine Dies

Up next is Sue McDonald  from the UK, with her Scrapbook layout for the LOVE theme.
I cannot wait to see everyone's Scrapbooking from this Blog Hop.

  4. Are your pages based on 12 x 12 white? I have a terrible time judging size and dimensions. Did you trim the pink arrow sheet? These are great!
