TBT: A Sweet Favorite

throwback

 

We are throwin’ it back to a sweet, tasty collection from 2008, compliments of HandKrafted by Stephanie. Any guesses?

If you guessed Bittersweet, you are right! This was BasicGrey’s first ever valentine collection and it flew off the shelves.

I love mixing collections. I find it a fun challenge to pull out coordinating elements and it allows me to pick the items that really match the theme of the page. I used a variety of elements from three different collections: Sun Kissed, Type Set, and Dear Heart. I started with choosing to highlight our holiday pictures and second on colour.

For my title, I trimmed off the word ‘chaos’ and used just the ‘beautiful’. The epoxy alpha worked well to fill out title but needed foam dots for the added dimension.

To create a visual triangle with the orange, I added buttons, sticker flags and a sticker under the ‘here & now’ chipboard.

I hope you have fun mixing it up. For me, it really adds to the versatility of a collection as well as allows me to use favourite bits!
