Love of my Life | BasicGrey True Love + giveaway

Valentine Inspiration

Welcome to the last day of this Valentine Inspiration series. Today I’m sharing a layout that I made with BasicGrey’s True Love collection, and I also have some Valentine fabulousness to give away to one of you lucky readers. Let’s get on with the layout first.

Love of my Life

Yes, this one is completely different from the other True Love layout I shared earlier this week. I was absolutely in love with that soft creamy woodgrain, I knew immediately I wanted to use it as the background of my layout.

Love of my Life detail 1

I kept my layout pretty simple, with more soft patterned paper, some element stickers and just a little amount of embellishments. The no. 9 ticket there is one of my all time favorite embellishments.

Love of my Life detail 2

And yes, on the picture is my husband, taking a selfie. I love him for doing that. Makes me able to scrap awesome pictures of him every now and then.

Love of my Life detail 3


Now let’s talk about the giveaway. I wanted to thank you all for your visits and many sweet comments here throughout this special Valentine’s week. I have a BasicGrey True Love 6×6 paper pad and a set of the Studio Calico Darling Dear wood veneer alphas to give away. Two of my current favorite products.

    Roze en bloemekes … en toch blijft het stoer en mannelijk. Heel tof dat het verder niet te druk is, ik vul altijd alles goed op, omdat ik het ander te kaal denk te vinden, maar ‘t is super zo.
