I am so in love with you!

FREEBEES

This was a fun layout to create! Ingredients: SBC+ Be Mine Digital Kit - CM (paper 4) Photo Masks of my own design   (this was one of a set of exclusive masks I created for my Simply Digital Class attendees).  Perhaps in the future I will make them available to members of my site!
  • I began simply by adding a plain white rectangle stretched to the size of my layout and then filled it with a two tone gradient background of red and white.  
  • I used the gradient option at the very bottom of the selections second from the right.  Make the "first color" red and the "second color" white.
  • Once you have your background add the burlap surface found in the Format Ribbon.
  • Now stretch your background so that the white center spills over the corner edge you desire.  This is a simple yet effective look.  (I used this exact effect on the "Just Be" layout of my son with orange and white-go and have a look to see another example). :0)
  • I then added a white grungy edge (one that I created from an old photo).  You can use any distressed overlay to achieve the same look.
  • I added the Paper 4 from the Be Mine Digital Kit (then rubber stamped it in white).
  • I then filled two of the same Photo Masks on either side with photos.  (this was one of a set of exclusive masks I created for my Simply Digital Class attendees).  Perhaps in the future I will make them available to members of my site - once I have my tutorials up :0)
  • I used the text wrap feature in SBC+ to add the title.
  • I then added the simple vintage frame and placed it on an angle for effect.
  • The photo in the background was blended using the Soften Edge Filter in the Format Ribbon!
