Melissa - XO Layouts

Good morning, its Melissa here!  I hope you're enjoying Summer as much as I am!  Today I have three layouts that I made with Kaisercraft's beautiful XO collection.  I loved this one soooo much that I couldn't stop!

XO is a Valentines Layout with gorgeous colours, patterns and chalkboard print, and I decided to use it to scrap my gorgeous girls.

For my first layout I used this speciality wreath paper, and I backed the smaller cut outs with patterned paper from the collection.  I left the larger flowers open to provide contrast.  The photo is of my baby girl in June when she was 2 months old.  I completed the layout with some collectable die cuts and stickers.  The title is made with a die cut (Sweet) and sticker (smile).

My second layout is about my eldest daughter loving to look our for her baby sister.  I really wanted to feature that bold floral, but I couldn't make it work, so I  used the B side of it (apricot colour).  I layered some papers under my photo, and applied some gelato with a plastic bag and a spray of water.  My title is handout from this gorgeous paper.

My final layout is made with cutting a selection of the patterned papers with a manual die "Love" on my Cuttlebug.  I also cut some leaves with plain white cardstock.  I arranged them on my page, then stitched them down.  I stuck my photos on vellum to provide some soft separation from the rest of the page, then just added some stickers and sequins.

The flower border is from the sticker sheet.

You can purchase XO in the shop here.  Thanks for looking and see you again later on in the month.
