Hello crafty friends, and welcome to February!  Majken here today to kick off Love and Hearts theme week.  I'm sharing a layout today of me with my infant daughter because this month, she turns 18 (gasp!!), and I wanted to document more of my time with her when she was little.

After I cut out the Floral Heart Background cut file with white cardstock, I cut out the inside of the heart by releasing the compound path and ungrouping the pieces to remove the bits I didn't want to cut, and then I created a thin offset of just the inside of the heart.  I did the same thing with the flower and leaves. 

Here is what this looks like in Silhouette Studio:

Next, I backed the open parts of the heart flowers and leaves  using Cocoa Vanilla Studio More Than Words.  It's so soft and pretty, and that little bunny ephemera was perfect - it's hard to see, but my daughter was wearing a bunny and carrots onesie.  :)

I used 3D foam adhesive to give dimension to the Floral Heart Background cut file.  I also spattered some Distress Oxide inks over my background for some texture (Tattered Rose, Abandoned Coral, and Spun Sugar).

I used ephemera, stickers, a tassel, and sequins to finish the layout.

Isn't this cut file just gorgeous?!?

I hope you get some time to document love for someone special this week!  We'd love for you to share your projects with us on Instagram - tag us with #justnickstudio so we can see what you create!
