Lost & Found with MME

Happy Thursday!  For the third time in a week, I'm up on the My Mind's Eye blog :)  Today's page focuses on the new Lost & Found Record It collections...Heirloom and Antique.  I couldn't wait to dig into these goodies as soon as I received them.  The embellishments are so fun in these collections...lots of layered stickers, Project Life cards, ephemera, name it!  I combined both collections for this layout.  I was instantly inspired by the gorgeous pinks in the Heirloom line, and I wanted to create a page about me and my husband.

I began with the Heirloom "Formal" paper and went for my gesso, modeling paste and stencils.  I love to "dirty" up my backgrounds sometimes.  It's fun to use gesso to give a faded look around the page.  Next, I started to go through all the papers and Project Life cards to build my layers.

Next, I sorted through all the word stickers and ephemera...there are so many fun ways to embellish with this collection!  I chose several pieces that described the way I feel about my husband.  The fun part is that both of these lines mesh so well together.  Everything coordinates!

Another awesome part of these collections is the glitter! Yay!  What scrappy girl doesn't love glitter?!  And it's silver, so it goes with everything!

There are also lots of arrows in these lines.  In this layout, I just kept thinking of Cupid's Arrow.  It seemed appropriate for a page about love :)

I had tons of fun going through these collections and combining different elements from each one.  And they're not all completely "lovey dovey."  There is so much to choose from that you really can make pages about any subject.  That's what I love about MME's products!

Thanks for stopping by today!
