The One with the Favorite Technique Layout for American Crafts

Saturday, May 4, 2013

I had a layout go up on the American Crafts blog this week and I thought, while I'm in the midst of sharing a bajillion layouts, let's include this one :) 

Journaling says: Sitting. Rolling from front to back. Not sleeping. Always smiling. Happy.

How to: Place a large heart doily on a pink patterned paper background, spray over it with light pink mist, then remove the doily. Punch heart confetti from an assortment of Dear Lizzy patterned papers and gold foil paper then adhere them in a grid across the layout. Sew down each row of hearts and bend up the edges for dimension. Add a heart doily on the top left and bottom right corners. Place three photos across the bottom of the layout and add a bit of pink scalloped velvet ribbon underneath each photo. Type journaling on a typewriter, trim it into strips, and adhere them on the top heart doily. Stamp the date below and embellish with a piece of pink sprayed doily, button, paper clip with a felt bow, flower stickpin, and branch sticker as shown. On the bottom heart doily, add the title and a bunch of embellishments.

Supplies: Cardstock, patterned paper, gold foil paper, buttons, ribbon, chipboard (chevrons, tree), stickers (branch, flower border, letters, number, "today"), date stamp, adhesive: American Crafts; Paper clips: American Crafts (heart), Studio Calico (with felt bow, with fabric pennants); Stickpins: Making Memories; Doilies: Wilton; Bow: Crate Paper; Heart punch: Martha Stewart Crafts; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Typewriter: Smith Corona; Ink: StazOn; Spray mist: Studio Calico
