Counterfeit Kit Challenge has their second challenge of the month posted today. For this challenge, you are to be inspired by the following mood board:
For my layout, everything I have used is from my January Counterfeit Kit - with the exception of the enamel dots. My enamel dots sit on my desk in a basket within reach at all times so I just pull them when I need them.
From the mood board, I was inspired by the messy stack of books to create a "stack" of patterned paper strips down the center of my layout. I was also inspired by most of the colors - black, white, red, and pink, and the circles, and the "sweet" dessert to create a layout about my hubby - or my "sweet" heart - and I! Tomorrow we celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary so I thought it was fitting to make a layout about us!
For the patterned paper strips, I used the border strip sheet that I included in my kit and a few pieces of washi tape from my kit. I can't believe that I remembered to use the washi tape. More often than not it goes untouched in my kit!
I also used the circle stamp that I had in my kit to do a little random stamping on my background. By the time I added the paper strips most of the stamped images were mostly covered, but they are there!
My title and a couple of the black foam hearts came off of one of the word sticker sheets and I die cut the red heart and the "I only have eyes for you" circle out of one of the papers for my embellishments and the "love this life" circle is another stamp that I had included.
Here is a close-up of the embellishments:
