Loving Life - Scraps of Darkness

Loving Life Playful Shabby Chic Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scraps of Darkness Kit Club - February Our Story Kit

I'm sharing another layout that I created with the February Our Story Kit from Scraps of Darkness. There are a lot of repetitive elements in this kit that I love. In addition to the beautiful flowers there are also a lot of circles. I played up both of those elements on this page.

Peek-a-Boo-Photo and Patterned Paper Layering on a Shabby Chic Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar

I had this adorable photo of my niece peeking over the edge of a table top that I just love for its playfulness. I decided to cut away the distracting background of the photo to really let her shine. I cut the floral collage sections from the top and bottom of the Prima Love Clippings - Little Love Clippings patterned paper and sandwiched my photo between them.

Fun with Circles on a Shabby Chic Scrapbook Layout - Distress Markers, Gold Foil Rub-Ons, Dye Ink Stamping

I built up more layers under the photo from notcards, journaling cards, and fussy cuts from the Main Kit and Creativity Add-On. The Floral Add-On has a wonderful mix of colorful, textured, and glittered blooms that were so fun to mix and match on this page.

Circle Stamping and Gold Foil Circles Bubble Effect by Dana Tatar

I traced two large circles onto the base of this page with the Festive Berries Distress Marker from the Elements Add-On. To add more circles to this page I stamped over the background with the Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles stamp from the Main Kit using the Prima Chocolat Dye Ink from the Color Add-On. I also added circles from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons included in the Elements Add-On. This shimmer to this foil is amazing!

Lastly, I added a title for this page, "Loving Life," also from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons.
