True Love

I'm not going to lie.  I have sort of a quirky non-literal approach to scrapbooking, probably because I am more motivated by color than theme.    And when I saw this pretty renaissance lady graphic, I thought I wanted to make her a kit, LOL.  I loved the colors, loved the look.  And then, because I'm trying to get better at making things that non-quirky folks can use, too, I spent some time thinking about what sort of kit she would fit into.  And Valentine's Day was the answer.  Because what is more romantic than the Knight in Shining Armor and his Fair Maiden?

Turns out it's also a really good kit for renaissance fairs and halloween costumes, LOL.  Lots of hearts and castles and beautiful colors really have very few scrapping limits.

This set of templates is a little out of the ordinary, as all of the "photo" spots are also the same size as Pocket cards - 3x4, 4x4, and 6x4.  This makes it easy to pop in one of the cards if you don't have enough photos.  There are a variety of dimensional cards in the matching pack, or just use those spots for cards you already have and want to use :)  (I called it "gridless" because they aren't in a rigid grid style layout.  I waivered on the title, because it sounds kind of grim, LOL.  But it said what I wanted to say so I left it ;)

I created a couple of layouts this week with Fair Maiden.  I think it's ironic that neither one of them actually uses the pretty lady, LOL:

The second layout was difficult, because I actually had to put my own picture on it (and THREE TIMES no less!)  But my husband really is my knight in shining armor and I wanted to document that, and so there you have it.  

I hope this inspires you to scrap tales of valor and happy times for yourself :)  Fair Maiden (and all of the pieces/parts) will be at the introductory sale price through Monday at my Digichick shop.  'Til next time, happy scrapping!
