Rachel- Just the Two of Us **LUXE**

Today we have another Luxe black and white beauty from Rachel Burgess. The monochromatic papers were a perfect match for a layout featuring photos from her 3rd anniversary dinner at a very swish restaurant. Looks like Rachel is living the "Luxe" life!


Just the Two of Us
by Rachel Burgess

Black and white Bazzill cardstock
Black pen
Rub Ons- Luxe Designs There’s the Rub "black hearts"
Die Cuts: Luxe Simple Jotters "black," "Friends."
Patterned Paper: Luxe Classic Black II Cookie Dough
Black inkpad
Heidi Swapp Bling borders pink
Offcuts of 2 thin white/ cream ribbons
Sticky foam pads
Plain brad
Black card bill wallet and card saved from restaurant.
Cut pieces from black cardstock to look like cow print patches and arrange on 12x12 white cardstock.
Use a black pen to draw a faux stitch border.
Cut an 8x8 inch square from the patterned paper, ink the edges and attach just off centre towards the upper left of the layout.
Print and trim your photographs to the desired size and arrange on the layout with the friends jotter panel. Use the sticky foam pads to attach one of the photos to add dimension.
Cut the black card wallet down to the desired size and slide the simple jotter panel inside. Tie the outside of the wallet with the ribbons and slide the small card under the ribbon. Attach to the jotter using the brad (this will stop the jotter moving around as much). Apply a heart rub on to white card, cut out and attach over the top of the brad.
Apply the 2 birds rub on to the friends jotter panel.
Decorate various elements of the layout with the bling borders as desired.
