It's official. Foiled is the new glitter and there is more of it in February's 'Love That' kit within the My Mind's Eye 'Cupid's Arrow' collection. These papers are an awesome mix of black, woodgrain, red and aqua and are very pretty whilst most of them could be used for layouts other than love/valentines.
I've used the chevron paper for my background, having first mounted it onto turquoise card. I've used a couple of journaling cards and kept the design quite block-like. The mini envelope contains another journaling card (trimmed slightly) and contains more journaling and an additional small photo.
I've tried to keep the love theme to a minimum here because my photos don't work with that, but they were taken at a wedding so there is a sort-of link there. The red chevrons in the background are foiled and are so pretty in real life when they catch the light. I threaded my Thickers onto bakers twine for the title which I think looks quite effective.
Kirei has made the layout below using these supplies and you can find more information on how she made it on her blog.
