My One and Only

Happy belated Valentine's Day! Here at JBS we're celebrating love this month. People you love, objects you love, activities you love. If it's about love... we want to encourage you to scrap it and share it! Here's the page I created:

If you're a subscriber to the JBS Mercantile kits then you might recognise what I've used here. It's the Papercrafting Kit and Artisan Kit from August last year. They're simply perfect for your Valentine's scrapping with hearts a recurring theme in the papers and embellishments.

I limited myself to quite a monochrome colour palette - white, cream and yellow. But there was plenty to choose from, and with so much texture involved too I don't think it becomes boring ;-) Don't forget if you're attempting monochrome that you can also include the neutral colours like black and white which helps break it up a little and adds some great contrast. A black and white photo is usually the way to go too.

My favourite bit out of the kits were the Fancy Pants stencils from the Artisan add on. There's plenty of potential with these - pop out the letters and use them like you normally would, or use the stencil part to outline with pen, spray mist through, paint, ink.... limitless options. You will have noticed I ultimately chose to use then stencil itself as the title and popped it up on foam dots so you can see the gold vellum layered underneath.

Now do you want to know the extra good news for you?! Both the August Papercrafting Kit and Artisan Kit are still available. And.... they're both on SALE right now for 50% off! Check them out in the 'Past Kits' section of the shop. They would make a great late Valentine's Day present to yourself ;-)

Happy Scrapping,
Pin It!
