You Are Loved Forever
(Scraps of Elegance DT - "Be Mine" kit)

I have been busy in my scraproom these last few days playing with the latest Scraps of Elegance kit, and this is the first of 4 projects I will be sharing with you over the coming days. 

Get ready for some love, hearts and Valentine overload!!

The 'Be Mine' kit features the beautiful Heartland collection from Blue Fern Studios
plus loads of embellishments, flowers, die cuts from other fabulous brands.

For this page, I also used many items from the Elements and Floral add-ons.

I also decided to play along with a few fun challenges.

Tic Tac Toe challenges are always a blast, and this one from Scrap Our Stash is no exception
and it went so well with the overall theme of the SOE kit.
I decided to go diagonally, following the blog name watermark on the board,
so I added some small die cut doilies, a tag, and of course, lots of hearts.

The other challenge that inspired me is this Valentine-themed board
on the Off the Rails Scrapbooking blog.  It couldn't have been a more perfect match!

 And now let's take a closer look at my layout:

I was in the mood for stitching so I added handmade stitches along the outline of the damask design on the paper...

and some more around the heart.

The kit contains a pack of dozens of love-themed die-cuts from Kaisercraft that includes many beautiful quotes like the one below.  It seemed to go so well with the picture and the sentiment behind my inspiration for this layout.

I'll be back in a couple days with more 'Be Mine' creations.
