{Smitten} using Simple Stories

Hello crafty friends!  

Do you ever have a collection on your desk after creating and can't bear to put it away yet?  That happened to me recently with the Simple Stories Love & Adore collection.  It's just so dang pretty!  I wanted to stay on the "love" theme but I needed a good photo.  My families' Facebook pages came to the rescue!

I created this layout of my niece and her husband on their one year anniversary.  Aren't they a cute couple??  And hugging in the snow makes them even cuter.

I also had most of a Bea Valint cut file left over after creating this layout of my husband and me on our wedding day.  They are certainly smitten with each other, so I had to choose that as my title.

Take a peek at the the final view of the cut file after matting behind the flowers and some sewing.

Here's a closer look at the photo area.  I popped up the flowers sticker for some depth and sewed in and around the photo mat for additional texture.

I used some of the phrase stickers too.

So go have fun with whatever collection is sitting on your desk - you won't regret not putting it away so soon. :)

Have a great Friday and weekend!
