★ cherish memories {Heartfelt Creations}

Wednesdays are my favorite day of the week, not only it is hump day, but its also Heartfelt Creations Wednesday and I can share another beautiful project with you today.
Did i ever tell you that hubbys favorite colour is purple?  He loves purple, ( and yes, owns a few purple shirts, colour suits him well) I was sent some additional Raindrops on Roses collection when i accepted to remain on for an additional term with Heartfelt Creations and decided i was going to do a masculine layout with this paper collection.


i am so thrilled with out this project turned out, all those distressed papers, and layers, spellbinder dies to add more detail layers. all sewn together on my machine. handmade vintage florets and that bella rose stem added the details i was looking for. What i like to do with my spellbinder card dies, is if my photos are too large for the die, i just cut the die in half and use it as detail layers, as shown here. perfect!


vintage floret has still got to be one of my favorites for flower making, and i have recently gotten myself some memento luxe inks and the colours match this line perfectly.

another layout which i have to say i am proud of, my hubby and oldest son, gosh hard to believe this photo was only taken two years ago at an impromptu drive to the beach, you just never know what the camera can capture on film, i love this photo of these two. until next time, happy scrapping
