The Basic Grey True Love Collection is the perfect collection for Valentine’s Day! It has an adorable color palette and patterns to match. It is packed full of paper, stickers, brads, envelopes, buttons and more. The paper designs just blew me away, and I really didn’t know where to start! I wanted to put everything in the collection on the layout! I didn’t manage it, but there is so much left over I can scrap the events of the day too!

Here is my layout:

My favorite part in this collection has got to be the envelopes! I knew I just HAD to put one on my layout somewhere! They are beautifully decorated and come in both the soft blue and cream. I added a brad to the envelope as a fastener – the flap just tucks behind it to keep it closed. A few of the coordinating buttons adds a little more dimension to the page – this cluster is mirrored in the opposite corner.

They all come with a small journalling card inside too! One less thing to think about and I love the fact that my journalling is hidden.

I also love that the collection includes a 4×6 journalling pad. There are so many fun quotes to use and elements to fussy cut. I fussy cut the quote “thinking of you , always makes me smile” and the small banners from the pad just to add a little more interest to the page. I also used my white pen to add some faux stitching and ‘break up’ the plain paper edges.

I hope I have inspired you to steal this collection – perfect for many themed layouts – but a great ‘steal’ for scrapping the memories from tonight!
