My Heart is Full | Niki Rowland January 21, 2019 07:00

Hey there! Niki here today with sharing a layout using the lovely 'My Heart is Full' cut file from the store. This type of file is one of my favourites as it has outline letters that can be back filled.
I chose to use the Paige Evans Whimsical collection for this layout. I used the little 2x2" swatch books to back fill the letters. I cut the My Heart is Full cut file in white card and then drew around each letter with a pencil and cut out the backing papers using scissors. I can do this on the Silhouette machine and cut all the backing papers that way but I often do this by hand as I quite enjoy sitting and fussy cutting to bring my layouts together.
I used a white background for this layout and gave it a border in my usual style. Instead of a narrow border I went for a much thicker border today and also added a narrow pink border too so make the hearts paper stand out more.
As my background was white, the words 'my' and 'is full' didn't stand out too well becuase they were cut on white card, so I painted then in a blue Shimmerz colour to make them stand out.
I then used the Whimsical swatch books to make lots of little tiny envelopes. I fussy cut the hearts from that lovely hearts paper and had them all coming out of the envelopes. The result is super cute!
Thanks so much for joining me today, check out all the gorgeous valentines and heart cut files in the store, they are all so lovely.
Happy scrapping xx
