Love is in the Air! - A layout and card by Kim Holmes


Love Never Fails

Hello!  Kim here today with a layout for you created with a combination of Bella Blvd papers and coordinating Hampton Arts stamps.

Love Never Fails... by Kim Holmes

I started out stamping the arrow, the small flower and the larger flower multiple times on my stamping paper with navy ink.  Then I colored them in with my markers being careful to coordinate the colors to match both the Kiss Me Collection and the Love & Marriage Collection.  Then I cut out the images and used them as embellishments on my layout. The flowers became a banner that I hung under my photo and I used the arrows to add direction and draw your eyes to my photo. I love how the stamp sets have so much versatility...after all I used the Sand & Surf set for my wedding layout!


Supplies:

Bella Blvd Kiss Me Collection
Bella Blvd Love & Marriage Collection
Bella Blvd Black & White High Fives
Memento Ink
Hampton Arts Stamp Set - Bella Blvd Sand & Surf
Copic Markers
Misc. Twine

When I married my husband 27 years ago, we decided that we wouldn't celebrate Valentine's Day in the traditional sense.  Instead, we would try to appreciate and celebrate each other all year long.  I know, kind of sappy, but it totally works for us!  I send a LOT of cards to remind him how much he means to me, so I love a good stamp set that helps me create cute cards.  The Kiss Me set from Hampton Arts for Bella Blvd is perfect! My favorite stamp is the row of hearts...just so versatile.  I can't wait to create my own "washi tape" with that stamp!
