Live, Laugh, Laugh – Gabrielle Pollacco

Hi everyone! I’m so happy to share with you all a special page I made for my parents anniversary this month.  They are having their 58th wedding anniversary, such a wonderful milestone.  For this page I combined a number of  Maja Design paper collections, using 5 different papers. (Vintage Summer Basics 1922, Nyhavn-Strolling Along the Canal, Vintage Summer Basics 1923, Ska Vi ta en Fika-Pratstund, Vintage Autumn Basics-XVI) as well as some awesome new Dusty Attic chippies!

I’m always so thrilled when I hear that Jennifer Hedger (owner of Dusty Attic) has been busy creating new chipboard designs!  Above are all the fun new chipboard designs I used to make up this romantic page. (I used the smaller version of the Live Love Laugh title)
I began by using the Vintage Summer Basics 1922 paper as my matting/background paper. I then cut the corner and 1/4 inches off the edges of the Nyhavn paper, which I then painted with some Shimmerz paints (Black Cherry Soda Creameez and Onyx Inklingz) and stamped liberally around the photo area with some stamps that I designed for The Scrapbook Diaries.  I then layered on a crocheted lace Doily from Tresors de Luxe and a chipboard frame from Dusty Attic (Swirly Frame and Laurel Leaf chippies).

I created coordinating blossoms using the Rose Creations dies from Spellbinders, using the scraps from the Vintage Summer Basics 1922 and 1923 papers.  I cut the smaller inner petals from the darker pink paper and the larger petals from the light pink paper.  I also cut out a few green leaves using the Ska vi ta en Fika paper (leaf dies are from the Rose Creations set).

I added a cluster of embellishments in the bottom right corner using a couple of Dusty Attic chippies (title and scroll).  I also added some texture using a Prima flourish stencil and home-made texture paste. And as always I love to tuck in a little clock here and there from the Vintage Autumn Basics XVI paper.
I hope my parents enjoy this layout, I’m forever grateful to have them in my life and hope they will see many many more anniversaries.
