Max and his new guitar. This weeks color combo inspired me to do a valentine-themed layout. While perusing photos, I stumbled upon this picture of Max, Brandi’s boyfriend, from last November. Low and behold, his shirt and hat were a good match for the color combo AND he was professing his love on camera for his new guitar—sometimes it just happens that way.
Mocha, french vanilla, navajo blue, and red heat are the color names for the combo which were inspired by a cute handbag. The picture of the handbag is posted at Color Combos Galore as well as inspirational layouts posted by the designers.
On this layout, I used the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge for the scallop border and the Pagoda Cricut Cartridge for the Love rectangle that were embossed using Sizzix texture plates coupled with Core’dinations cardstock. I also used my Singer Futura to blanket stitch the layout—that’s gotta be one of my favorite everyday built-in stitches so far—and to attach the buttons. Teresa Collins patterned paper were used for the journal strips, ticket, and red heart strip. An Autumn Leaves stamp with CTMH ink were used for the little birdies towards the bottom of the layout.
