Together Forever

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!

A special Happy wedding anniversary to my best friend! ❤️❤️❤️
20 years of marriage we celebrate today and appropriately enough both of the layouts I feature today are all about Jason and I!!!!

I will apologise upfront for the terrible photos of my projects. They are not great, however, the weather here over the weekend was miserable and didn't help with the photos!!!

I have loved working with this gorgeous Kaisercraft collection this month, Stargazers. It is sensational!
When I first received it from Jo I was not sure how I would feel about it at all. I loved the colours but wasn't sure about the whole 'stargazers/space' theme to it.

My first layout to share with you today is of the two of us last year for our 19th wedding anniversary!
I have followed the challenge by using the challenge sketch and I have used two of the items...washi and stencils!

Here it is...

Whilst I used the sketch, I did make some alterations...only one photo!!!
Here is the sketch...

I have used a pattern paper from the Stargazers collection, gesso and distress ink with the cutest little stencil by Darkroom Door (Small Stencil) - Polka Dots

I added a variety of the patterned papers, some collectables from the Stargazer collection and assorted washi tape.

I added some gorgeous heart stickers from the American Crafts - Vicki Boutin - #Sticker Book.

My title is using the alpha stickers by Doodlebug - Loopy Lou. I think these were part of my stash and an older set of letters. I truly LOVE how this layout turned out and adore that patterned background paper.

I was at Scrapbookit over the weekend and I did spy some more Kaisercraft - Stargazers kits. Be sure to get in quick...I am sure you will love it!!!!

At our recent Scrapbookit Retreat, I also created another layout using the Stargazers collection.
I actually scraplifted Julie's layout (thanks Jules!)

Again, it is of Jason and I. However, this photo is a tiny bit older and was taken in 2010!

I started with a plain navy cardstock and applied some heavy gesso as well as some blue and black acrylic paint to create my background.

I added some of the patterned papers and a part of the large floral on the sticker sheet from the same collection.
I used two different heart stencils, the larger one Scrap FX Heart Confetti and Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts Stencil, and some of the new Heidi Swapp Metallic Texture Paste - Silver. It is so fantastic to use! Easy to apply through the stencils and dries nicely.

I also painted the random chipboard heart with the texture paste.

I used one of the 2Crafty Chipboard Word Circles Set 2 chipboard circles and added the word 'forever.'

I finished my layout by adding collectables from the collection and heart and arrow stickers from the American Crafts - Vicki Boutin - #Sticker Book.
