January Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Hello friends! It's Lee-Anne here and I am so glad you are here and hope you are enjoying the hop so far! You should have arrived here from Suzanna's blog but if not you can go back to the beginning here.

Today I wanted to share my layout that I created for the hop from lots of goodies in my stash. I really love the gold trend at the moment and wanted to put some old goodies with some new goodies. Here is my layout.

Sibling Love Is Golden - by Lee-Anne Thornton (Photo courtesy of Rockwood Photography)

For this layout I cut out the  Lucky In Love digital cut file on some 12X12 white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and backed it with another piece of white cardstock . I love the Lucky In Love 12X12  background digital cut file that my friend Ashley Horton has designed for The Cut Shoppe.  I was honored to be on her design team for the first term. 

 For the gold painted hearts, I applied some Heidi Swapp Colorshine in gold with a water paintbrush and painted the hearts and some of the love words and then splattered some randomly. 

 I then brushed some Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink in gold and outlined the hearts and painted the Prima wood veneer key and wood veneer "love" word. 

I added some vellum paper from We R Memory Keepers that have these cute gold hearts on them, a gold doily from SRM Stickers and some white doilies from Bo Bunny. 

 American Crafts have these cute gold buttons that I have had in my stash for at least five years so now was the time to use them. 

 I painted some Karen Foster Designs twine with the Smooch gold paint and threaded the gold buttons and added some gold round and star sequins.  

Finally, I finished the layout with some flair from A Flair For Buttons that I bought a few months ago and some alpha Thickers from American Crafts.  Here are some more closeups of this cute brother and sister who are my photographer friend's little ones.  Isn't it cute how the little girl looks up at her big brother? She simply adores him.

Valentine's is coming up and sometimes I like to put a different spin on the traditional Valentine's colors of red, pink and white so I went with the color gold for this layout.  I hope you have enjoyed your visit to my blog.  I would love if you would become a follower of my blog.

Next up is the talented Bobbi  Have a wonderful day!
