Start with a Grateful Heart Layout

Sunday, October 6, 2019

Here is a guest design layout for My Creative Scrapbook using their October 2019 kit which features Truly Grateful and this exclusive Leaf Heart cut file I designed to go along with it!
I started by die cutting the Leaf Heart from textured white cardstock and then I backed the leaves with patterned papers from the kit. I also backed the right half of the heart with the light purple grid paper and machine stitched around the right edge.

On the plaid paper background I splashed watered down white acrylic paint and then adhered the Leaf Heart as a slight angle on the right edge. I trimmed off just a tiny bit of excess cut file hanging over the right side. I added two 3x4" photos of Jane last fall to the heart.

Time for embellishing! I brought in stickers, die cuts, and florals from the kit and added them all around the photos, focusing mainly on adding them to the right side of the layout. I machine stitched around the border of the page. Then I trimmed four triangles of purple floral paper, distressed and machine stitched around the edges, then added them to the layout corners.

To finish I wrote journaling on the bottom left side and added a partial piece of a floral die cut below. I hope you are inspired to check out the My Creative Scrapbook kits and cut files I design exclusively for them!
