kiss me collection~shadow box


valentines is definitely for all things soft, pink, and feminine.
so when i saw the kiss me collection, i knew right away, i was going to transform this shadow box i had up with our christmas photo, and alter it for valentines.

the collage paper from the background papers is my fav pattern.
it made for a perfect mat to house the goodies i wanted to add to this frame.
once the background paper was in place, i basically treated the rest of the project like a traditional scrapbook page. added photo on a bull clip, attached the bull clip to the background.

i cut out the 'be mine' heart from one of the valentines. the edges were distressed and inked up a bit. some bling emphasized the sentiment. then it was popped up with dimensional tape.
one of my fav. fav. parts of this kit is the printables and most specifically the flags n tags page. i play with those pieces all the time. the 'yours truly' sentiment was trimmed and added to a vintage pearl topped pin. i make my own flags all the time with pearl tops. you can find fun corsage pins in the wedding floral department at your craft  store. so fun.
and book you know i have a current affair with book paper rolled roses with tiny pearls in the center. just an excuse to get in touch with my feminine side.

junque bows. thank you so much, sweet margie, for encouraging my love for junque. &bows. i use them every.where. grabbed a bit of masking paper, tim holtz tissue, tulle, pearls on string, and seam binding...add any thing you want...always a perfect little touch.
