Valentines Layout: color concept with Lizzy

20 Comments Color with Lizzy, Dear Lizzy Products, Scrapbook Pages 12x12

Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day I thought I’d share this layout I made for my Two Peas Garden Girl project. It took me longer than I had hoped to get the title right. But I love the quote, “You have my whole heart for my whole life” and I wanted to diecut it with my Silhouette Cameo somewhere on the layout. I tried other patterned papers and color combinations and finally realized that I am definitely drawn to more white on my projects.

I diecut the quote and three hearts below it. I backed the three hearts with patterned paper. I used a punch to punch out the larger hearts below those. Then added some stitching to ground those hearts. The small triangle paper is from my newest Lucky Charm collection that should we available online soon. If you are interested in the cut file let me know. xo, Lizzy

I love messy stamping so I stamped with the arrow then did a few more until the ink fades away. Same with my date stamp.

COLOR CONCEPT:
I wanted the color combination to be light and airy with the mint and the white then a pop of color. I chose red for obvious reasons as well as a black and white stripe and some turquoise. I used the gallon, quart pint concept for this layout. The gallon of color is white, quart is blue and the pint is red. It helps the layout to feel balanced and the page to really pop. I also chose pictures where the pint of color was displayed so the photos stood out as well. Thanks for looking!
xo, Lizzy

    As always, love this layout! How do you make messy look so good? I feel like my messy looks crappy. Maybe I need to see it with fresh eyes and not be so judgmental of myself. WOW this is deep for scrapbooking!
