Ah, to be young an in love again… well, we’re still in love, but not so young anymore! Looking at this pic, which I came across as I project-lifed my old film photos, reminds me of the good old days when all we had to worry about was which restaurant we’d be ordering from. I knew I wanted to scrap this photo, which is probably the first picture of us together, so I got to work on it right away.
I used the Studio Calico Front Row kit, with the Popcorn and Matinee add ons. I love the stamps in this month’s kit, and the “our story starts here” stamp was perfect for this layout. I stamped it in one of my inks- Hero Arts Midtones in Bubble Gum. I also used the ledger-type stamp right below it, in black.
I love the Journal Thickers font, and this one in a sparkly black (it came in the kit) seemed like good choice to add some contrast to the layout. I like to use lots of black accents on layouts for pictures that have lots of dark space on them, like this one does.
When I saw the “boy meets girl” paper from Jenni Bowlin in the kit, I figured that was the paper I’d never use, but here I am using it (albeit a small piece) in my first layout! I made a pink banner for it to sit on and a punched heart anchors it to the photo.
