Welcome!  I really enjoyed creating these layouts.  The papers and complements are simply beautiful.  Let's take a closer look at this lovely creative collection, and what YOU can do.  

Today we'll look at one of three, 2-page layouts I've created using Hello Lovely.  I think the pages are simple yet elegant. 

On our first page, the "BEAUTIFUL" title is made up of individual self adhesive dimensional letters.  Very easy to use!  To provide me with the ability to slip my photo under the overhanging flora, I used foam tape to provide dimension to the cardstock weight floral bouquet sticker. 

These embellishments are found in the coordinating Complements which are included in the Workshop Your Way Creative Collection kit, but can be purchased separately.

On our second page, I again used foam tape for the floral bouquet and single rosette stickers.  I really like how this brings just a touch of dimension to the layout. 
The three little self adhesive hearts are made of the same material as the "Beautiful" title on its companion page.  So easy to use, and oh, so sweet!  

My bow is made with the beautiful Blush Shimmer Ribbon, also included in the Hello Lovely Workshop Your Way kit.  I have found that Glue dots are great to adhere your bow, and any ribbon in general.  

Along with the foam tape and Glue Dots, I used my trusty tape runner to adhere all of my papers to make my layouts.  

I hope you enjoyed seeing my Hello Lovely layout, and that it has sparked your creative juices.  I'll post the corresponding pages shortly. 

When I purchased this collection, my thought was to use the papers for Easter and my grand-daughter's upcoming First Holy Communion.  Now that I have them and have "played" with them, many additional thoughts come to mind -- weddings, engagements, dances, home & family, springtime, gardens, graduations, etc.  This collection is a wonderful go-to for many of your life events.  

Oh my goodness, I am also using them for cards -- new baby, birthday, Easter, wedding, engagement, hello, get well, sympathy, etc.  What will you create with Hello Lovely?

Although floral patterns run through the papers and complements, the reverse side of the papers are very neutral and can be used for so many other projects.  The colors are soft and soothing.  Featured colors include Colonial White, Desert Sand, Fern, New England Ivy, Sea Glass, Sorbet, Whisper, and White Daisy.  So pretty and versatile!
Until next time --

Thank you so much for visiting!

I enjoy hearing from you!  Have a wonderful day! 
Happy Papercrafting,
