Live, Laugh, Love Keepsake

This past weekend's theme at Michaels was Live, Laugh, Love.  I made this page for a shadow box that I used with our in-store Make-It-Take-It project.  I found the background paper on clearance at Michael's.  If you have a busy background paper, you can cut a solid circle a bit bigger than the words to mask some of the busy background!

I have three separate layers on my Gypsy.  On Layer 1, I used the rings from the Wedding cartridge sized at 5.13w x 4.41h.  I centered the rings on my mat.  I found some ugly red floral paper on clearance at Michaels that was 2-sided (I always check the back) and the back was a shiny gold!!!  I bought lots of it!  It worked perfectly for the gold rings.

On Layer 2, I put the words Live, Laugh, Love and three hearts on my mat.  I centered a circle on the mat just larger than the rings.  I used the circle to line up my letters, then deleted the circle.  The letters are from Storybook and are .73w x 1.93h.  The hearts are from Plantin' Schoolbook and are 1.34w x 1.15h.  I used the rotate button to rotate the letters and hearts.

On Layer 3, I put the names and date in the center of the circle.  The number of letters determines the best size of the letters.  For my letters and numbers, I sized them at .58w x .65h.

I cut out the pieces and saved the negative paper pieces to use as a template.

I ran the letters through the Xyron and glued them down to the paper.
Here is the completed page ready to go into a 12 x 12 frame.  This would  make a great wedding or anniversary keepsake!!!
