Doux Moment
(Scraps of Elegance DT - 'Be Mine' Kit
PLUS Cuts2luv & Berry71bleu February Challenges)

I told you I would be back with more creations using the Scraps of Elegance 'Be Mine' kit....
well, here goes:

I made this layout very soft and shabby chic using mostly some ScrapBerry's paper from the Paper Add-On as well as gorgeous die-cut elements from Kaisercraft from the Elements Add-On.

I was inspired by 2 fabulous challenges which I thought went well together.

First, this is the February challenge board from Cuts2luv... a French-Canadian flair & chipboard manufacturer from the neighboring province of Quebec.

I have been eyeing these very inspirational boards on the Cuts2luv blog now for a few months and have finally had the chance to play along since I recently purchase some of their beautiful products.  The challenge is to use a minimum of 2 of the proposed elements in the board.  I tried to incorporate all 5, using pink, white, grey and black as my palette (Combo), lots of clustering of die-cuts, flowers, paper strips, etc (Technique: Clustering), a picture of Yves and I joined in a kiss (Photo: Bisou), a die-cut image for a subtitle saying 'I love you most of all' (Titre: Je t'aime) and lastly based my design on the sketch (Sketch) included.  I also used the chipboard title 'Doux Moment' as well as 3 pieces of flair from Cuts2luv, all from my own stash (not included in the SOE kit).

The second challenge from which I took inspiration is this super romantic and sweet mood board from Berry71bleu.  I based myself mostly on the soft peachy pink colours with black and grey accents, and the overall theme of LOVE.

Now let's look at some close-ups:

As you can see, my embellishments form many layers on my page.  I used so many of the Kaisercraft die-cuts plus some beautiful flowers from Prima from the SOE Floral Add-On.

The SOE kit includes a new product that I had never tried before... Nuvo Jewel Drops.  I added a few drops here and there on my page and smudged it with a paintbrush to give a translucent pink tint to my background.

I absolutely adore the striped black and white Cuts2luv flair!

The quote from the die-cut sums up my feelings for Yves perfectly.  He is my soulmate, and I am so blessed to have found him!

I hope you enjoy this layout - Let me know in the comments! :)
