Serendipity Inspiration with Susie!

Hello and welcome!  Susie here today sharing a layout featuring Quick Quotes all new Serendipity collection.

I love the combination of blues, greens, and lavender that make up this line and decided to use it to scrap an engagement photo of my husband and me...so appropriate given the definition!

ser-en-dip-i-ty  
noun the occurence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way


I started by die cutting and embossing hearts from each of the papers in the line. You have 8 patterns to choose from since the papers are double sided.  I varied the size and shape of the hearts and mixed in pieces from the Calypso Chipboard Die Cuts.




I die cut and embossed a vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes and layered it over white cardstock...

... which I had inked with PowderPuff Chalking Ink, using the die as a stencil.


I created a frame for the sentiment by die cutting and embossing Serendipity 100 paper.  The paper has a white core, which is easily revealed with a little sanding.


For the finished piece I actually chose to use a different quote and added Teardrop pearl bling accents.


If you are interested in seeing how I created the stenciled banner across the bottom of the page, I prepared a short video - enjoy!

    Is that you in the picture, pretty lady? Very nice layout. Where did you get those wooden little people? I "need" them.
