Valentine's Day Layout

This layout was inspired by one I saw on Out On a Limb Scrapbooking.  They sell scrapbook kits.  I was looking for some ideas for my monthly crop at Michaels and followed one of her Valentine's Day ideas.  Note:  I have no intention of selling my pages as a kit or at all,  just wanted to give credit of the deisgn to the proper source!  This is not how I typically scrapbook, I start with the photos and paper and then go from there. 

I used the LOVE from Love Struck 2010 cartridge.  I wanted to add some beads to the heart and a couple of bigger hearts as well. 

These photos below show how I made the beaded hearts:
I started with paper hearts, beads and Glossy Accents. 
I outlined the hearts with Glossy Accents.
I filled in the heart with the beads.

Next, I covered the beads with Glossy Accents.

Here is what they look like wet.  These particular beaded hearts were used for a different project.  I also used red seed beads for my Valentine's Day layout.

I cut a variety of hearts out using George and different pink, red and white papers.

The little envelope came from Sentimentals.  I sized it to 7.92w x 2.93h on my Gyspy.  I used a heart to seal it!

I added a few heart shaped buttons and some ribbon.  I used baker's twine tied in a knot for the buttons.
And here is the final layout once again.  This is a pretty layout....with all boys I am not sure where I will find photos to add to it lol!!

Lori I love your layout! All the red and hearts and beads...oh my! Also, thanks for the tip on using glossy accents with the beads. I love my glossy accents and often use it over glitter, but haven't tried it with the beads...will have to give it a go!
