Ombre Fun!!

Hi everyone! Tegan here and I am so excited to be designing for Paper Issues! Since Valentine's Day is fast approaching, I wanted to use the lovely (pun intended!) Bella Blvd Valentina collection. I still go crazy over the ombre effect, so of course I had to use the See You Soon patterned paper as my background! You can find it in the Paper Issues store right here. You will just love this paper too. It does not disappoint! 

Stitching with embroidery floss just so happens to be my favorite technique at the moment. Who noticed that I had embroidered around the page in an ombre effect that follows the patterned paper? It did take a little bit extra time, but I am so happy with the way it turned out!

The Bella Blvd Valentina sticker sheet has all kinds of fun shaped stickers to finish off a layout! I used foam adhesive underneath the stickers in places I wanted to add dimension. And I added buttons from my stash on top for even more dimension!

I layered patterned papers from the collection with a tilted photo to add some interest to the page. 

The alphabet on the sticker sheet is just fabulous as well! It is so fun and great for titles!
