Scrapbooking Notes:

I chose these two photos because they reflect the closeness and feelings of the couple being photographed. These photos are perfect for a Valentine’s Day layout and to include in a scrapbook on the couple in the photo. The photos are the focus of the layout so you don’t want to add too many embellishments. I used the large heart shaped die cut to frame the heads of the couple in the photo. It isn’t necessary to cut the excess photo outside of the frame because there may be something in the photo that is important to the couple (i.e. the necklace the woman is wearing is special because it was given to her by the man in the photo). If there isn’t anything special in the excess portions of the photo you can cut around the outside of the heart shape. If this is what you choose to do, you don’t need to use the two heart stickers in the corners of that photo. In between the two photos I added a medium heart shaped die cut to the page and a small heart shaped die cut inside it. If you really want this heart to stand out you can use a 3-D foam square underneath the small heart shaped die cut to add extra dimension to your scrapbook page. On the corners of the photos furthest away from one edge of the page I stuck on a heart shaped sticker to add some color because the straight edge of the photo looked so bare next to a blank white space. The final sticker I used to embellish this layout was the Soul Mates sticker (which speaks to how the couple feel about each other). I added this sticker to fill in a large space in the corner of the photo. I had removed as much of the excess background from the photo with the personal trimmer but removing any more would have meant the photo would have looked uneven. Fill in the empty spaces around the photos with journaling. Use a red bold or fine-tip pen, depending on how much journaling you have to add.
