Love Us by Charmane Koch


Happy Friday Everyone! OOHHH it's one month until Valentines Day... so this layout is kind of perfect to get into the swing of things - hahah!

I decided to have yet another play with the Chit Chat Collection - wow how many layouts I have created using this fantastic collection now? Is it 4 or 5 maybe?

I started my layout off with a background I created recently using the Boxed In Stencil, some Heavy White Gesso and sprinkling on some Aquamarine Embossing Powder. I have then dried it with a heat gun.

How therapeutic is it watching the Embossing Powder bubble away??? Or it just me?

So I did that background back in December - as I did it on my "Mask On" layout and wanted to recreate the background and maybe show you how I did it? Who knows... that was sooo last year! heheh...

I decided that it was time to use it and the Aquamarine colour matched perfectly with the Chit Chat Collection Papers... 

The other night, I wanted to scrap but had no mojo, so instead I got out this piece of paper and did some fussy cutting....

and yay.... {PS - I am not normally a fussy cutter, so don't look too close!}

So to put the page together it was all about layering & playing around with the bits and pieces I cut out. I also cut out the Grungy Filmstrip Metal Die  using Black Cardstock

It's perfect for a frame around photos, and also ripping the smaller filmstrip in half I have tucked underneath the other layouts on my page.

I then got out the fabulous Scrabble Stamp - how awesome are the alphas? 

I stamped US onto one of the Chit Chat patterned papers to create my title...

I also used the cute Male/Female stamp on the Charms Creations DIY flag, and you will see I have stamped it all over the background. To create a different effect I have used a mix of Gel Medium & Slipper Artist Ink!

I also used the Happy Clear Stamp "Together is my favourite place to be" - this will be IN STOCK SOON!

How cute is this "love"?

And the FULL layout! Really had fun playing with this!

Thanks for popping by and I hope that I have inspired you to have a play with the Chit Chat Collection! It is a LOT OF FUN!

XO Charm
