Hugs & Kisses 2 Page Sketch with Allison Davis

Hi everyone! Allison here with a layout using the lovely Hugs & Kisses collection. I've also got a new sketch to share with you that combines traditional scrapbooking with the SN@P! Pocket Pages.

You can download the full sketch with measurements and placements here.

The left side of the sketch follows a more traditional style of layout design while the right side uses the SN@P! Pocket Page, Design 3.

Here is my layout based on the sketch.

Valentine's Day in our house is usually a day full of fun activities. We have to make Valentine's for Drew and Jackson to hand out a school. We always have a heart themed breakfast like heart shaped strawberry muffins or heart shaped red velvet pancakes and our own special "love potion" to drink. There are balloons and candy and lost of hugs and kisses and even a heart scavenger hunt. We usually end the day with a visit to see family which usually involves lots more balloons, candy, hugs, and kisses. It's definitely a day to document!

I love how the Hugs & Kisses collection has the traditional Valentine's Day colors mixed with the blues and black and white. Those colors made it easy to take something more feminine like hearts and flowers and use them with boy heavy photos.

For the background of the left page I cut out several hearts from the Heartthrob 12x12 Designer Cardstock. I love the variety of colors and patterns! I use hearts often and if you were to visit my house you would see them everywhere. When I first saw the Heartthrob paper, I knew we would be pals!

I added a few small details to some of the hearts like arrows, stickers, smaller hearts, and even small photos. The arrows are cut from the Love Letter Designer Cardstock. I also used some foam adhesive to make a few of the hearts stand out and give some more dimension to the layout.

For the title I used the "love" stickers and added the "Happy Valentine's Day" banner at the bottom.

On the right page I used a combination of cards and photos with the SN@P! Pocket Page, Design 3.

I always enjoy adding small details to the empty spaces of my photos. On this photo I added a small xoxo sticker the bottom corner and added a small circle/heart to one of the "o"s.

For the 3x4" pockets I used photos for three of the pockets for photos and then used a 3x4" card in one pocket. I added a small photo and heart embellishment to the card. The heart embellishment is actually cut from one of the 4x3 cards on the Elements #2 sheet.

On the bottom card I added a small photo to one of the hanging frames. I also added some small heart stickers to the wire the frames are hanging from.

I hope you enjoy using the new sketch and have fun playing with the super cute Hugs & Kisses collection!
