February Club Q with Susie!

Hello and welcome to the blog! Susie here today to share a layout I created with the February Club Q Kit. I combined elements from several of  the kits to create my perfect page! With the beautiful laser cut heart frame from one of the page kits, I was inspired to scrapbook my engagement pictures...from 25 years ago!  Here are a few details:

The kits include this beautiful green grosgrain ribbon.  I cut 3 pieces about 3" in length, tied overhand knots and trimmed the edges on an angle.  I used glue dots to adhere the bows on top of the frame.

I assembled one of the flowers, inking the edges of the petals with Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking.

I created a lot of dimension by using 3D glue dots between each layer of the petals. You can see the leaves peeking out from underneath. I scored them down the center and gently creased each leaf before inking with Light Moss and Warm Sand PowderPuff Chalking Inks.

The lower portion of the heart frame actually incorporates the word "Love" written in script!

I embellished the letter "L" with another small flower. This is also a good picture to show a little of my detail work!  In addition to inking, I used a black ink pen to "stitch" around the entire inner and outer edges of the frame. It adds a little subtle definition.

The February Club Q Kit was full of all kinds of lovely detail pieces!  I used Milk Chocolate PowderPuff Chalking Ink on the delicate laser cut edging. So elegant! I added another small picture and a wonderful sentiment card to the bottom right corner and finished everything off with a bow!
