A Gift of Love

I hope you had a chance to celebrate Valentine's on Tuesday, whether  it was a romantic dinner with your sweetie or helping with your children's Valentine's party at school.  If you did, I am sure you managed to snap a few (or a lot in my case) photos of all of the happenings that day.  Now, you've just got to pick the perfect papers and embellishments to get those photos scrapbooked.  Well, I think Scraphappy has just the thing your looking for!!  Christy has an adorable line by BoBunny called "A Gift of Love".  These papers just scream Valentines.  The colors range from pink, red, brown, and cream and there are some great brads, pearls, sticker sheets and other fun embellies that coordinate with the papers.

I took a couple of photos of my daughter working on her Valentine's on Monday to give out at our Homeschool Valentine's party and got them scrapped that afternoon.



I love the large heart-shaped paper that goes along with the collection!  It's perfect for an instant matting for all of the elements on your page.  Sometimes the shape papers can be a little intimidating to use, but this one was really easy.  I just tilted it on my background paper and layered my photos, journaling, and title over the shape.  I cut a border strip from one of the patterned papers and used my scallop scissors on the notebook style paper and then added one of the border stickers from the sticker sheet.  There were some really cute circle stickers on the sticker sheet and I added some pop dots behind those to add a little dimension to the page.  I also used the papers again, but cutting three free-hand circles (they don't have to be perfect circles), roughing and curling up the edges with my scissors, and then layering them together to create a textured flower.  The brads that go with this collection  are so cute and I had fun using them as the centers of my flowers.

I hope you will stop in the store between now and this weekend and pick up some of the BoBunny line.  You definitely won't be disappointed and I think it will be just the motivation you need to start getting those Valentine's photos onto your scrapbook pages!!
