Happy mail

Red is my favorite color.
I really love red shoes, red nails, red dress.. etc.
But usually I didn't use more reds in my scrapbooking page.
Because I felt the more reds are too strong in my page,
sometimes those reds overwhelmed my photos with their strength and intensity.

humm.. but as soon as I saw the love notes collection I decided to put more reds into my page at this time.
As you know this collection is full of pretty reds and pinks for Valentines's season.
Especially I couldn't deny the reds in Love notes are so attractive.
and I chose a photo with red accents for this layout.
then added little red pieces from chipboards, stickers and patterned papers.
Oh! so lucky! There are cute envelope and postbox chipboards and those pieces go well with my photo. no doubt!
While I used more red pieces on this page, I also used properly sufficient empty space and white gesso.
These devices make red details easy to mix and match my photo for good balance in my page. :)

Using the leftover paper strips

There are always tons of leftover papers on scrapbooker’s desks.
And we are often under a lot of stress when we don’t know how to purge and organize them.
But leftover papers are one of my favorite ways to add awesome pattern combinations and layering.
Let me show you an easy way to incorporate leftover papers into a layout.

my DSLR collection

 I don't hesitate to say that the great technology for recording my routine is just my camera
and I want to make great advances in my photography.
So recently I'm interested in collecting some lenses and lights. It's just my greed? At least I hope not. ;)

especially "Love you more" line of Elle's studio.
Those are very simple and soft in pink, yellow and green.
And I used lots of die cuts and Journaling tags of "Love you more" in my life pages.
It made my spread so sweet. :)

small tags and labels of Elle's Studio are perfect for simple layering.

And I tried to cut some Journaling tags to put into 4*4 pockets.
