Serendipity and Love with Quick Quotes

Hello and welcome!  Today I am sharing a layout  featuring Quick Quotes *new* Serendipity collection.  I love the combination of blues, greens, and lavender that make up this line and decided to use it to scrap an engagement photo of my husband and appropriate given the definition!

ser-en-dip-i-ty  noun the occurence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way

I started by die cutting and embossing hearts from each of the papers in the line. You have 8 patterns to choose from since the papers are double sided.  I varied the size and shape of the hearts and mixed in pieces from the Calypso Chipboard Die Cuts.
The die cuts were sanded to reveal the white core.  I added dimension with Steel Blue bling from Want2Scrap.

I die cut and embossed a vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes and layered it over white cardstock...
... which I had inked with PowderPuff Chalking Ink, using the Spellbinders Labels Four die as a stencil.
To create a frame for the sentiment I used Spellbinders Gold Labels Four dies to cut and emboss Serendipity 100 paper.  The paper has a white core, which is easily revealed with a little sanding.
For the finished piece I actually chose to use a different quote and added Want2Scrap Teardrop Bling accents.

If you are interested in seeing how I created the stenciled banner across the bottom of the page, I prepared a short video - enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!
