Pebbles We Go Together Hugs & Kisses Grandparent Layout

Today I have one last Valentine's Day layout to share featuring my sweet grandparents.  They have been married just a few years shy of 70 years so when I came across this photo of them I knew they would be a great match with the Pebbles We Go Together collection (even if it was taken at Christmas time).  ;)

I thought it would be fun to create a grouping of the roses in this  collection by layering them on the aqua tag.  Even though the tag didn't quite match my theme, I loved the color of it and how it contrasted with my flowers so I was able to strategically hide the picture printed on it.

I die-cut my hugs and kisses title using Silhouette cut files found HERE and HERE using white vinyl which is perfect for thin, delicate titles that might otherwise shred ordinary cardstock.

To give my flowers extra depth I popped up some with foam tape and cut some extra flowers from the matching patterned paper to layer in the centers.

For the perfect finishing touch to my layout I created a ribbon border using We R Memory Keeper's Sew Ribbon tool.  I love how it adds the perfect Wow factor to my layout!  It reminds me of a fancy wedding dress which is perfect for a layout all about love!

To create a border just like mine, you will need 3 to 4 feet of ribbon (I used almost an entire 4-foot AC spool with my bow)  and a We R Memory Keepers "Sew Ribbon" tool of your choice.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Make sure to hop over to the Pebbles blog for a step-by-step tutorial using the "Sew Ribbon" Tool.  :)
