I created this layout as a thank you for one of our directors (I actually created six, one for each of our main directors/producers). I wanted to have a dark background, and this background paper from Prima's Archivist line is one of my all time favorite paper designs.
I hesitated choosing the branch and heart chipboard for this piece. At first glance, they chipboard and the paper I used are completely different styles and I wasn't sure if they would really be compatible. But as everything came together, I was hooked. They work super well together, in my opinion, and I love the overall look- the mix of casual with classic vintage.
