Fall In Love With Origami Hearts

I was playing around with the Mix & Match Cranberry Paper line again!  I am a huge fan!

I have made origami hearts before scrapbooking but I knew I had to try to incorporate them in a layout.  My love of different is apparent in my layouts.

Wedding

Weddings are wonderful place for LOVE/AMOUR!  Mi Amor with all of its sweet embellishments works so beautifully with wedding photos.  I changed my photos to black and white so they would blend nicely with the rich reds in this collection.  I changed the title from black to white and matted each of the photos in white to coordinate and then added a shadow to all elements to make them pop!

Travel

I love blending my background photo into the paper background and then add a few of the sweet heart embellishments in this collection.  As for the white hearts I changed the opacity so that the hearts looked like vellum.

Travel photos work well with Mi Amor.   To make my journaling more visible and stand out on the background paper I added a white rectangle and changed the opacity.    From Paris to Vegas or Paris in Vegas…

Valentine’s Day

And of course Mi Amor is perfect for LOVE day photos!  One of my favourite embellishments is the sweet envelope and the wonderful advantage to digital is you can make this envelope as large or as small as you like.  I added embellishments and cut them along the bottom to make them look like they are popping out of the envelope.  I then added a heavy shadow.

Happy LOVE Day!
