Just About The Details

Love Struck – Scraps of Darkness February Kit “TellTale Heart”


Here is the first layout I created using the February kit “The TellTale Heart” from www.scrapsofdarkness.com.  I created this using the exclusive SKETCH made by the amazing Charlotte Jenkins AKA Suepup.

Here is Daniel and I on the Gondola Ride at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.  This was our last trip to Vegas before we started having kiddos….oh, the good ole’ days 🙂

I did a lot of layering, distressing, inking, hand-stitching, and clustering on this.  The papers here include Teresa Collins’ Noel, some Echo Park, the very last piece of paper from my Jan kit (Pink Paislee), & Kaisercraft.  I did  a few V-day stickers I got 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby.  I misted the flowers with red Smooch mist to “red” them up a bit.  I copied and included the tickets to the actual Gondola Ride and stapled them underneath the photo. This kit does NOT disappoint.

Here are a few up-close detailed photos:

And just a little tip to gluing down bulkier embellishments: hot glue!

TFL my friends!!!

    Having seen this project up-close, this is one of my favorites. You’d never know that the tickets were copies and I absolutely love the reflective red on the black paper that you used! -But as for this being the good old days, I still see us smile like this at each other pretty regularly, so that tells me we’re doing something right! 🙂 Love you, babe.

    I’ve been checking out your scrapbook pages whenever you paste them on FB, Nancy. They are all awesome. I really loved seeing this one of you and Daniel. Did you make the ones with mom and dad that we all got a year ago Christmas? Or did your mom make those? …or maybe Barry,hehe. We all cherish them. Love ya!
