Citrus Twist Kits | 1919

I'm Guest Designing this month for Citrus Twist Kits,  here's another layout I made with "Beautiful Life", the June main kit.
You all know how much I love scrapping old black and white photos ;)  As soon as I saw the “Open Road” patterned paper by Crate Paper with those big blue flowers, I knew it would be perfect for a heritage layout! It has that old fashioned but modern look to it.

I started with a few layers under my photo, and even snuck in a strip of the sheet music paper from the kit. I punched a few heart shapes, then went back and re-cut the just a small amount off the edge to give them more of a hand cut look.  Next it was a bit of machine stitching down the center of the hearts, scattered a few sequins, then added the arrow stamp.
 
To finish it off, the Thicker numbers were added to the banner shapes that were cut from the Studio Calico “Green Acres” paper, along with a fussy cut flower and strip of washi tape to tie it all in.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate the visit!
