You Make My Heart Happy Layouts by Heidi Lewis

Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Hi friends! Heidi Lewis here on the blog today sharing two layouts I made with Paige's You Make My Heart Happy from the 12 Love Cut Files along with Garden Shoppe!
I typically get into a creative rut in January. When in doubt, I scraplift Paige! Her original layout can be found HERE and I used Garden Shoppe instead of Splendid. To begin, I backed the You Make My Heart Happy Cut File with a variety of papers from the 112x12 Paper Pad. Then I punched and stitched some heart buttons from Paper 10 to use as embellishments on my letters. I picked Paper 13 for the background because the colorful cut file really pops against the black-and-white stripes. I finished off my layout with two 3x4" photos and embellishments from the Floral Die Cuts8-Page Sticker Book, and Cardstock Stickers.
Rather than wasting inner pieces of the cut file, I decided to use the white letters to make a second layout!
To begin, I cut Paper 24 into squares and then cut the squares into triangles. I distressed the edges of triangles then arranged half of the triangles onto a second sheet of Paper 24. I love how the background looks like a quilt! Next I arranged the letters onto the grid and adhered them with foam adhesive to help them pop from the busy background. I used a circle punch to transform my photo into the letter “O.” Lastly, I added Cardstock Stickers using the tone-on-tone technique to keep the layout from becoming too busy.
If you, like me, are feeling the creative blues feel free to scraplift one or both of these pages featuring Paige's You Make My Heart Happy from the 12 Love Cut Files along with Garden Shoppe! As soon as you start creating, the ideas will come!
