JOURNALING SAYS: No words can express and tell the love I have for you! Our trip alone to London was my favorite of all time. I want to go back all day every day! Love you!
HOW TO: Punch a million hearts in three different sizes from Take Me Away patterned papers - I mostly used Paper 07. Hand stitch a heart using white thread on a white cardstock background then machine stitch using light pink thread around it. Fill in the stitched hearts with the paper hearts using foam squares to attach each one for dimension. Build the title and add journaling on the top left side. Create a photo cluster on the bottom right side for balance. Drop black watercolors over the top left and bottom right sides.
SUPPLIES: Patterned paper, Thickers, chipboard stickers, wood veneer, tag, buttons, paper clip, die cuts, roller stamp: Take Me Away by Paige Evans / Pink Paislee; Punches: Fiskars (bow, large heart), Martha Stewart Crafts (medium and small hearts); Doily: Wilton; Floss: DMC; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Watercolors: Loew Cornell; Ink: StazOn; Pen, adhesive: American Crafts
I also have a pair of bonus cards which were made with the leftovers from the layout:
