Hello CVS friends Rachel here.

Recently I relocated to a beach side town, in doing this I had to seriously sort and declutter which was well over due! I found some older CVS collections and fell in love again with them. So today I have a layout created using the beautiful Love Always collection.

One of my creative goals for 2018 was to journal/document more and this layout is all about me moving out of young children mode of living to having more time, choses and a little more freedom. This being a note to self themed layout in essence.

Black and pink has to be one of all time fav colour combos and so I intentionally set out to use papers and embellishments of these colours (with a tiny amount of the Note to Self blue paper to mat my photo).

I have used two cut files on my layout, my title ‘life is short buy the shoes’ is from the Silhouette Design store  and the floral bunch is from Justnick Studio and is called Behold Beauty. I have used black cardstock to cut my floral bloom and then I cut another out line only (if using a silhouette cameo trace your image and click on outline and then click on trace, remove the middle detail and you should be left with the outline of the cut file only which means you can paper piece easily and quickly) to paper back the flowers. I created layers by only adhering the flowers but not the leaves or sprays.

The Love Always collection included a Bits and Pieces pack this is where I collected the sequins and heart rhinestones from.

I used the Frolic paper as my base paper. I cut my title from the Class Act paper and then cut it down to a 10×12 inch strip and adhered to the centre of the Frolic Frolic paper.

I then adhered my floral bloom cut file. I matted my photo, using two squares and off setting them and then attached my photo with foam tape. Now for adding some finer details such as the sequins, rhinestones, cardstock stickers, a subtitle and lastly some journalling. As I often do I add some random machine stitching for definition and texture.

Thank you for stopping by today and happy creating!
