Love Together | Raquel Bowman

Hey everyone, Raquel here today to share a layout I created using the February Hip Kits with you. I decided to scrapbook another wedding photo and I am so pleased that I am slowing making my way through the never-ending pile of wedding photos I want to document.

For this layout I wanted to make a feature of the heart cut file from Nicole’s exclusive set. To do this I created my own background file by cutting and pasting the heart in many different sizes and then welding them together. I also kept some of the heart files individual too.


I backed the cut file hearts in the remaining piece of the patterned paper by Pink Paislee that was used in a strip on the right side of the page. I also used the gorgeous pink chevron paper from that same C’est La Vie collection to back the cut file.


Some of the hearts were backed in vellum too, I just love that translucent look it gave to the cut files, a bit like a frosted window. together-raquel-5

For the title I used a combination of the Maggie Holmes Bloom clear stickers and the Amy Tangerine word thickers. I added the title directly to my photo as there was so much negative space. The heart was also from the clear sticker pack. together-raquel-6

I added an embellishment cluster to the top right of the page. It contained a combination of a cut file heart, a couple of punched hearts using a gold card stock from my stash, a MH clear sticker and a couple of the gorgeous bright pink Simple Stories enamel dots. Love the pop of pink they bring, and they really accentuate the pink from the Pink Paislee patterned paper. together-raquel-4

To the right of the photo I added one of the gold foil Amy Tangerine frames. I used it more as an embellishment and layer than its intended purpose of a frame, but I am really happy with how it turned out.


Below the main title I have a grouping of embellishments. It contains a Pink Paislee tag, a Heidi Swapp post it, an Amy Tangerine sticker, the gorgeous fringe heart and it topped with the Mirror Pink Paislee word and a Shimelle chipboard piece. How beautiful is that mirrored word? It looks like it was made for that heart. together-raquel-1

Incase you had any more questions about how this layout came together I have created a process video for you all

I hope this layout has inspired you to get creating with your kits!
