Love You More Layout

I have a love hate relationship with traditional scrapbooking. I love the creative process, the paper, and the beautiful finished work. But it takes me forever sometimes, I get discouraged because it doesn't look as cute as I envisioned, and so I stop. My memories don't get preserved and I'm sad.

I have found a remedy to my problems.. and I will talk about that in another post in the near future. But for now. I have been inspired by the girls on the Paper Issues blog. They have all kinds of tips and tricks to keep you motivated and inspired. Monthly sketches, Scraplifts, and free cut files just to name a few.

This layout was inspired from a recent Scraplift Sunday post. The paper I used comes from the Authentique Beloved collection. The love you more cut file is from Cricut Design space.

You Float my Boat Card

While I was at my local favorite scrapbook store I came across this paper by Authentique, so cute. I knew what I wanted to do with that heart and anchor paper instantly.

This card svg is from Lori Whitlock's shop. There are several in the valentines collection. All very cute and definitely give your valentine a wow if you make them. They come together very quickly so several could be made up in mo time.

My Funny Valentine Banner

I don't know what it is about Valentines day paper, but I want it all! This paper by Pebbles Inc. Is one of my favorites this year. The cute little sayings, the color pallet, and the images. Ahh! So cute.

The Donut!
The paper collection includes a sheet of 2x2 images. As hard as it was I cut it up and used my favorites for this banner. I then added a scalloped red square to the 2x2, cut some simple pennant's, and assembled. Instant cute.
