You Amaze Me Layout by Virginia Walker


Monday, October 1, 2018

Hello everyone, Virginia here with a new layout! Recently I created a layout where I stitched and added sequins to the stitching - I loved the look and wanted to recreate it, but this time of course I wanted to go bigger and brighter so I decided to feature the gorgeous Hearts Background cut file.
I removed a few of the inner hearts and the outside cut line and instead used a gray sketch pen to draw in the outline of the cut file as my stitching guide. I chose 8 colors of embroidery thread to match the colors in the Pick-Me-Up collection and set about stitching in a rainbow fashion, adding sequins to just a few of the heart shapes so I did not overwhelm the page. Once finished I chose patterned papers from the 6x6 Paper Pad and the Oh My Heart 6x6 Paper Pad to cut hearts to back the open hearts and also punched a few hearts to add in the open spaces.

I added foam adhesive squares behind my punched hearts to give them dimension. Embellishing the page was simple as I chose embellishments of the same colors and added them to each row of hearts of the same color choosing pieces from the Pick-Me-Up Ephemera Die CutsStickersChipboard StickersPuffy StickersRub-Ons, and the Haberdashery Multi-Pack.

For my title I used the set of gold Foam Thickers from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane collection and added the words in a diagonal in some of the cut out hearts and to add balance to the gold on the page. I added a few XO’s around the layout.
I love that cut files don’t always have to be used as they are - you can alter them to fit your needs, whether it’s stitching or removing parts as desired.
