Scrapbook Layouts

Snuggle Layout

Here’s the last of the layouts I made for the Two Peas in a Bucket CHA Challenges (I managed to enter four of them). This one uses a lot of the Crate Paper Fourteen Valentines-themed collection, which I got hold of recently, and am in love with! The Two Peas challenge was to use 6 of an item, so I used 6 Crate Paper phrase stickers and 6 Papermania Shimmer Dome hearts.


The photo is of my son on his first trip to the beach, when he was just a few weeks old, and he spent the whole time asleep on a blanket!

I liked the bold chevron-style paper, as it looks like a big arrow pointing down at my baby. But I softened the look a little by sprinkling some grey and gold mists, and adding a few drops of Gold Liquid Pearls.

The picture melts my heart each time I look at it, because he was tiny then, so I added lots of love-hearts on my page. The larger ones are cut from a piece of Fourteen paper, and stitched a few times through the middle, with a couple of label stickers on top… it looks a bit like a sandcastle flag:

The photo is layered on some white linen. I pulled some threads off to make it fray, to echo the edges of the blanket:

I need more tags with a ledger pattern – it’s so much easier to write on lines:

Do you have and Valentines themed supplies? In the UK we don’t do a whole big ‘thing’ for Valentines, so I won’t be making tons of cards or decorations. But I think I’ll be able to use the Fourteen collection on other projects too – there’s still lots more hearts I can cut from that sheet of paper! x

  1. This is beautiful. Fabulous colours and the stitched hearts look smashing as does the frayed ‘blanket’ :0) I didn’t even bother looking at any of the Valentine lines but this has really caught my eye!!


  2. Aww, the pic is just the cutest!! Love the stitching through the hearts and the liquid pearls and mist is very effective. I love that this years Valentines collections are more versatile … normally I wouldn’t bother with them but this year a lot of the collections are great as they can be used for a lot more than just love/valentine projects! xx


  3. Oh my, this is so sweet!I love the little sequin hearts and how you used the mist to make the chevron pattern softer.Lovely!


  4. It’s just gorgeous. So many fabulous textures and interest on this page.but that’s not the only thing that’s gorgeous, so is that little sweetheart. I will say, I’m thinking I need those papers lol


  5. I like how you positioned the photo at the bottom centre – not something I would think of but it looks effective. I like the idea of using a certain number of items too. I’m always looking for a challenge, it keeps me focused and inspired!
