The One with the American Crafts Valentine's Day Blog Hop


Thursday, February 14, 2013

Welcome to the American Crafts Valentine's Day Blog Hop!
Here is the love-themed layout I made using mostly Lucky Charm by Dear Lizzy supplies:
LOVE YOU

Journaling says: The day before Christmas we went down to Happy Valley Grange and took family photos. Allie had the vision and chose our outfits so we would "go" with her Christmas card design. I love how they turned out. Next year there will be even more people cuz Allie is gettin' hitched!

How to: Punch a heart border along the left and right edges of a mint/white striped paper layout base. Back the punched edges with blue floral paper. Punch heart confetti from a bunch of patterned papers. Trim a large heart from a transparency then start sewing the heart to the center of the layout. Pour a little confetti into the transparency heart pocket then sew a line across the middle of the heart. Pour a little more confetti in, sew across the top, and keep pouring/stitching lines until the entire heart is filled. Finish sewing the heart closed. Stitch around the entire heart once more for good measure. Shake the layout to spread out the confetti more evenly. Create three photo/embellishment clusters. Die cut a title from white cardstock and adhere it above the largest photo. Type journaling on a vinage typewriter, trim it into strips, and adhere them next to the bottom of the heart. Drop gold spray mist across the layout to finish.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, patterned vellum, badges, button, chipboard (arrows, chevrons, hearts, triangle), tag, stickers (border, sentiments, word), stamps (date, sentiment), adhesive: American Crafts; Transparency: Office supply; Pearls: Pebbles; Heart jewel: Recollections; Sequin: Craft supply; Lace trim: Hero Arts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Punches: American Crafts (heart border), Martha Stewart Crafts (heart confetti); Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Typewriter: Smith Corona; Die cut machine (Cameo), title die (Silhouette): QuicKutz
