Totally Redeemed

Sorry for the Dumb and Dumber reference, but I wasn't feeling my last Hand Stamped Sentiments project....not so this week.  It's our inspiration week and I'll admit I really stared at this one in my room day after day.

Isn't it lovely!?!?!...but just where to go?  I headed to my photos looking for a Valentine photo to scrap...turns out I must not take many Valentine's Day pictures.  I did however find one that I adored, even thought it's an old film photo. (So happy I only have a couple of years of film photos!)  Here is my layout:

It's stark white with pops of red-just like the inspiration photo!  This is my Linnea who is now just shy of 9!-how the heck did that happen!?!?

It was so hard to photo but the background has a fun little pattern:

I scored "envelopes" on the background-sorry you may have to click on the photo to see it larger.  I scored every 3" to make the squares then used the diagonal plate to make the "flap."  My last little detail that I loved is the flower button to match her flower on her shirt.

Be sure to hop over and check out the projects from the rest of the team!- and remember you have 2 weeks to play with us.


  1. OMG that is THE cutest pic, seriously want to squeeze that BABY, SO CUTE!! I love the XO elements also, man are you creative and your layouts are SOOOOOO inspirational!

  2. Very, very cool! I'm glad you said something about the envelopes scored into the background, what a fantastic detail! Sweet baby & a sweet layout :)

  3. I love this page! The focal image is the photo which it should be as she is adorable!
