WOW Layout for April #moodboardgirls

Sunday, April 8, 2018

Once again I played along with the #moodboardgirls to make this layered heart page!
I love the deep pinks, purples, blues, and greens in the moodboard - Pick-Me-Up matches perfectly.
Check out the process video to see how this layout came together and be sure to subscribe to be the first to know when new videos are up!
I started by die cutting each layer of my Concentric Hearts cut file (which you can find in my Afternoon Crafts class at Big Picture Classes) from a plethora of patterned papers - in order from biggest to smallest the papers are: white cardstock | Pick-Me-Up Paper 17 | Take Me Away Paper 02 | Take Me Away Paper 08 | Pick-Me-Up Paper 03 (b-side) | Pick-Me-Up Paper 04 (b-side) | Turn the Page Paper 11 (b-side) | Oh My Heart Paper 03 (b-side) | Oh My Heart Paper 02 (b-side). For a recent layout I pulled out all the solid colored papers from all of my Pink Paislee collections which I keep in a pile and sift through when I need specific colors like on this layout.
Once I had all of the heart layers cut out, I wanted more of a defining border on the top white cardstock layer so I came in with a chain link stitch and variegated purple embroidery floss around the edge of the heart. For even more texture and interest I machine stitched around the heart. I layered all of the die cut hearts together using dimensional adhesive to create depth and shadows. The foam adhesive I use isn't too thick so this page will still easily fit into a normal scrapbook.
Next came the photo which is of me in front of a big bush with pretty pink flowers in San Jose back in February when I taught at The Island's Creative Escape. Then I added matching colored embellishments from Pick-Me-Up like tiny Chipboard StickersEphemera Die CutsPuffy StickersStickers, sequins from the Haberdashery Multi-Pack, and Rub-Ons that I applied to white cardstock and then fussy cut out.
To create the title I used a "WOW" Sticker above the photo and then made the location with the white Mini Thickers placed around the curve of the heart. I journaled on the inner piece of a frame from the Ephemera Die Cuts using a .03 black precision pen.
The layout didn't feel finished yet so I die cut my Flower Frame from white cardstock and spent a long time figuring out the exact placement lol. I ended up trimming it all apart and sewing the pieces in four places to the edges of the page. That wraps up this layout! I hope you are inspired in some way!
Now hop along to all these other talented ladies' instagrams to see some eye candy based on the moodboard!
