2 Layouts in 1 day????

It doesn't happen very often - I usually only work on one layout at a time - all day long - but every once in a while, when I'm working with one project I'll get an idea for another and start working on them at the same time! I go back and forth between the two until they are done! I happened to use the diecut from one project for the other on these (the hearts).

I used products from my July Studio Calico kit (with add-ons) to make these!

The top layout is a photo of my lovely vintage cameras that I like to collect. I tried to give my embellishments a vintage feel to them with the wonky squares and the font on the "love" title. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the hearts of the title. I used a cute camera flair button by Ormolu from my stash - as well as the strip of camera transparency which was from an earlier SC kit. With some splotches of Mister Huey, a little machine sewing, and typewritten journaling on some vellum it was done!

The bottom layout was the first layout I started working on - on my wedding anniversary (which I had forgotten - it was just a lucky coincidence ;)! ). I started by cutting some background hearts using my Silhouette Cameo. I fussy cut the huge letters and then diecut the ampersand (I cut 2 ampersands - one in a pp and one in vellum. I didn't like either by themselves, but when I layered the vellum on top of the pp it toned down the color and it was perfect!!). I didn't like the font or the size of the letters in my kit for this layout, so I diecut part of the title with my Silhouette. I used the Pacifico font and melded the letters together. All that was left were the embellishments which I used from the kit, but added the words tags from my stash!!

Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by!! :)
