Unconditional Layout by Shellye McDaniel

by Shellye McDaniel

Who can resist posing with their canine pal?  Shellye here with a special layout of my daughter and our beloved Bear on Christmas Day.  Sydnee couldn't wait to give him his Christmas treat!

I normally love black and white photos (basically because I don't have to worry about clashing colors LOL), but to go along with the Kraft look found in the Sweetheart Collection, I used a sepia tone for this layout.  I am really excited about the addition of the cut-out journal cards;  for the title, I cut one of the cards down to size and then used the Love Letters Stickers to spell it all out!

Doodle Washi Tape is one of my very favorite things and I love seeing them ALL together!  So, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 6" X 9" and applied the various patterns as shown...for extra POP, I added it to the base paper with foam adhesive.  A portion of the Valentine Tickets was used as a little journaling spot.

And I think I speak for all of the Design Team when I say that we were MOST excited about the Paper Doilies!  Here, I cut one in half and tucked it behind the washi tape panel.  A trio of heart stickers were placed to create a visual triangle.  I topped each heart with a small flower sticker adorned with a Sprinkles center :)

I hope that you enjoy the Sweetheart Collection as much as I do!  Enjoy!
