The new Hugs and Prayers set, created by Nina Brackett, was designed with sentiments that make for beautiful and touching sympathy cards. While this set was created for that purpose, the images can also be used for other projects outside of sympathy cards.
I created a scrapbook pages using these beautiful images and a photo of my daughter (photo courtesy of Family Room Studio). One of the things that I really love about this set is that many of the images have lined and solid mirror images of each other. An example is the lined image of the flowers that I embossed on the rose colored cardstock and the solid image I embossed on the Sweet Corn cardstock. You can use the images separately or you can stamp the lined image in a darker color over the solid image for a 2-step effect.
For my page, I embossed all of my images with white embossing powder as I love the contrast it gives. I used a rose cardstock for my base and added Sweet Corn cardstock for my mat and Vibrant Violet for my embellishments and journaling mat. The white swirls in the upper corner are from the bottom of one of the images. I just made sure to stamp only the bottom of the image along my corners to get the swirly flourished look.
I added a length of royal purple ribbon with white brads along the bottom of my page. My journaling was done with a Black glaze pen, which is my favorite for journaling.
