Everyone that knows me (IRL and online) knows that I LOVE Scrapbooking. It is just one of my many hobbies that let's me express who I am as an individual. That is why it is not a surprise for me when I get emails from people wondering if I'd consider doing a custom order for them. These people either don't scrapbook themselves or just simply need the help getting pages done. With my love for this craft I am ALWAYS willing to lend a helping hand! Are you kidding me?
It sometimes takes me forever to think up something to do with my own pictures but somehow I am instantly inspired to create with other people's pictures.
Today I want to share a LO I created for someone using the CB Heart Throb shapes.
It says there are only 7 pieces in this package but if you break it up you will come out with 11 pieces. I only had to use 3 pieces to achieve the look I wanted for this LO. You will easily find that a little B&B here and there goes a really long way!
You won't find any journaling on this LO only because I am leaving the personalization to the person I made this LO for. She could wrte down her own memories from this day as she remembers them. You will see that leaving the B&B chipboard naked (as I have done on one of these hearts) really brings out a natural look for the LO. I wanted the colors to be very muted and I feel like leaving some of the B&B pieces naked worked best. I did cover one partially with a wood grain patterned paper and then stickled it with little dots up the edge to give it a more unique look.
It's easy customizing these B&B chipboard pieces to the way you want them to look. Here is one of the bigger pieces from the set. I punched out the 4 heart shapes (that is how I ended up with 4 more pieces) and I backed it with coordinating cardstock. Then, I stickled dots on the outer edge and used a glitter stickles to bring a grey color into the center of the piece. I flanked some blooms around it to bring it out a little more and Voila! A quick LO that's easy on the eyes.
