Graphic 45 The Olde Curiosity Shoppe Puppy Love Layout by Nicolle Kramer

Graphic 45 The Olde Curiosity Shoppe 
Puppy Love Layout
Designed By: Nicolle Kramer

A picture of  fabulous goodies I got to work with in this kit I used for all February's Blog posts.

In keeping up with the theme of the month here being Love, I created a layout of my son Bret hugging our beagle Roscoe. We consider our puppies here our babies. This picture was a total perfect photo opportunity. I was sitting at my scrappy desk turned around and saw that loving pose. I am so glad I caught it. The title I came up with perfectly fits the photo.

To create the background I used a flourish mask and Tim Holtz Black Soot distressed ink around it for that swirly effect. To get use out of my border punches I try to use them on all my layouts. The heart punch is perfect for this theme.  For further embellishments I cut different size hearts out of the graphic 45 papers.  I found a sketch online for even more inspiration.

Here's a close up of the love and all the layers. I added a pretty Petaloo velvet cream rose to the center of a handmade crocheted heart. 

A close up of the right bottom area of the layout. It's filled with more hearts and chipboard elements. Plus a little fussy cut butterfly.


 Don't forget to check out The Hen's Den store for some new products available now from Winter CHA.
