Here's my layout.
I used the wrapped up flowers & some clusters to add some visual interest & texture to my layout.
I also had some fun with some Simple Stories Silhouette shapes. I used Love.Love.Love (Camera), LOVE YOU, "love" POLAROID design which you can find in the Simple Stories section of the Silhouette Online store.
In the center of the camera I attached a brad .
The small Insta-square heart shape design I used along with another Insta-square shape which had the word "love" printed on it. I just adhered this behind the cut-out heart shape. I did wrap some ribbon around the edge of the heart shape window before adhering the other piece behind.
I used my Silhouette to cut out the polaroid design in red cardstock. I embellished the heart with the yellow cut out heart from the camera. I like to use the images from cut-out designs in other places on my layouts if possible.
I covered the back of the 'together' tag with some blue paper to help it pop off the neutral colored background.
I used the yellow scalloped doily diecut for my journaling. I was not happy with how it came out after I printed on it because the lines were all crooked.
So I printed the journaling out once again onto white paper and then cut it out, inked the edges and adhered to the doily shape.
I just love the pop of colour that the flowers give to my layout. They matched this collection just perfectly!
Thanks for stopping by!
