DT Choice: Sweetheart

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the blog. It’s Claudia here and today I’m sharing my DT choice layout with you. I absolutely love this month’s kit (and the add ons!) and had a bit of a hard time deciding what to use first. My favorite item in the kit is probably the Simple Stories Love & Adore stickers because there are 8 sheets which gives you a ton of options to choose from.

I often use white cardstock for my background but when I saw this paper I knew I wanted to use it for a layout. I love the geometrical heart and paint brush strokes – it kind of looks like a mixed media page without you actually having to do add anything.

I started by adding a few florals on top of my photo. I’m using a black and white photo again because the embellishments are quite colorful (and I’m still obsessed with the way black and white photos look – they just look so good with anything in my opinion).

I added stickers that matched the colors of the ‘brush strokes’. I pretty much only used the sticker sheets and a few of the embellishments from the Crate Paper Heart Day collection.

I also love the sheet with the words and phrases – they work with pretty much anything so I made sure to include a few of those on my layout as well.

As always I did a lot of layering behind my photo to create interest. The sticker sheet comes with labels too which are my personal favorite to use for layering!

There’s also a video on my Youtube channel where you can see how this layout came together from start to finish;

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout and feel inspired to start creating with your kit. What’s your favorite item in the kit this month? We’d love to know!
