My 2nd me-themed Garden Girl layout is up at Two Peas in a Bucket!

ME by Paige Evans

Description: I used the same moodboard as my me-themed "moments" layout and video that debuted a couple weeks ago. I had a whole punch of printables and cuts leftover and put a few more to good use on this layout. The colors in the Dear Lizzy Polka Dot Party line match the moodboard perfectly, with a touch of yellow. I also loved all of the hearts in the moodboard, hence the heart background. And the pieced hearts were inspired by a quilt that belongs to my friend Chrissy.

Journaling says: Whelp. This is me. On a Sunday before church. Age 28.5. Take it or leave it :) Loving where I am in life though I could afford to lose a few pounds!

How to: Paint three lines of white across a pink patterned paper. Trim the layout down to 11 1/2" square then adhere it onto a frames patterned paper layout base. Cut 8 hearts each from 3 different sizes (for a total of 24 hearts) from patterned papers, cut each heart into quarters, then piece the hearts back together using 4 different sections for each heart. Stitch around each heart (time consuming, yes, but adds to the quilt look!) and leave the threads long. Adhere the hearts in a 3 x 3 grid across the layout, leaving the bottom left corner empty. Place a floral border sticker, printed heart tab, and printed arrow die cut on the top right corner and stamp the date on it; journal below with a black pen. Adhere three round printed circles on the hearts in a triangle and add a hearts die cut from white cardstock on the bottom left corner. Trim a photo into a heart and place it over the die cut hearts. Place chipboard letter stickers, epoxy star stickers, and a heart sticker around the photo edges as shown.
