To Theme or Not to Theme

Valentine’s Day themed papers are my favorite themed papers ahead of birthday, Halloween and even Christmas. Why? Because they are so versatile. Sure you can use them for scrapbooking Valentine’s Day or even creating a Valentine’s Day card. I used the Scrapbook Circle February Kit Today is Beautiful and the add on Dream Big to create this card.

But you can also use Valentine’s themed papers and embellishments to create every day general love themed layouts like I did here.

A gold foil vellum heart could absolutely work for a Valentine, but I love it tucked behind the navy paper and stitched down.

In fact I used several pieces from the Crate Paper ephemera kit, including several for this cluster of embellishments here.IMG_1452Do you prefer to use themed paper for themed subjects or do you prefer to work outside of the box?
