Hi! Niki here with you today and I am making a layout with the Paws to my Heart Background. Now I am not a doggy person at all, so never thought I'd use this file but my father-in-law has just got a new puppy and we went to here I am doing a doggy layout! This cut file is super-cute with all those paw prints and hearts.

I started off by choosing a background and then I filled each one of those paw prints with a different paper. I used the new swatch books in Paige Evan's collection to do that, they were the perfect size.
Once each paw was filled, I then arranged my photo and cut file onto the layout. I stitched around the edge of the layout using my sewing machine and yellow threat and added lots of bits and pieces of ephemera, stickers and small embellishments.
I also added a title with alphabet stickers and stitched through those too as they seem to fall off a lot!  I finished off with some tiny sequins and handwrote in my journaling.
I have put together a process video for you to watch too.
Thank you so much for stopping by to see my layout, happy scrapping xxx
