Maggie Holmes Design Team : Happy Heart Captured

Hello lovelies! There's always a perfect excuse for me to create a lovey-dovey layout!! And this is one of them! 

Let me share with you my creative process on how I created this layout...
Once I am done with choosing the right paper & embellishments. I used my faithful Silhouette Cameo to cut the triangle pattern shown below. Then I begin to layer a piece of this amazing black & white striped patterned paper as the background. I just knew I have to use that paper. Followed by a photo at the right corner, layered with all the beautiful embellishments. BUT I wasn't too happy with the end result as something is still lacking...

... so I decided to add the gold vellum gold foil paper to bring subtleness to the bold black & white paper. Those cute gold chipboard hearts are perfect addition as well! Sprinkled some gold mists too. And I totally love this end result now! Can you see how much difference it made? The layout looks complete now.

      I love the dimensional quality of the chipboard accents. The thickness is just perfect!

The vellum totally makes this layout. It was a great call.
