Hi JustNick friends!!
It's Monique here today sharing another "Valentine's" layout, this time one with my kids in it instead of my hubby. I totally love the new "Heart Background 6" cut file and knew I had to use it. I chose the Heart Day collection from Crate Paper that I bought ages ago and of which I had 90% left (I love it too much to use it, how silly is that?) and an awesome journaling card from Paper Issues.
The new "Heart Background 6" cut file:
Before I used this cut file I copied it 3 times, so I had 4 of it, placed them in a square and welded them together. Then I resized it to fit my 12" x 12" sized background paper. Doesn't it look great?!
I created two clusters on my page: one with the photo in the left bottom corner:
I matted the photo on three different pieces of patterned paper, added a little card with an acrylic heart stapled to it, added a text sticker and a puffy heart sticker and of course a bit of machine stitching:
The other cluster I placed in the top right corner. This cluster consists of the fun flamingo journaling card, two paper clips, an acrylic tag, two die-cut hearts and two puffy hearts. I finished the cluster off with another machine stitched line:
At the top and bottom of the layout I added a strip of light pink washi tape with golden hearts. Love washi tape!
When my page was almost done, I added little golden enamel hearts and glued these randomly in the hearts of the cut file.
After adding a few light pink paint splatters I decided my layout was done! Hope you like it!
