Oh My Heart Layout by Phil Donahue

Wednesday, January 31, 2024

Hello scrappy friends! Phil Donahue here back on Paige's blog with a sweet and simple pastel layout featuring Paige's Hearts Background cut file and the lovely Blooming Wild collection! I wanted to feature a black & white photo of my niece taking a breather with her teddy during her second birthday party. The calm and cute photo leant itself beautifully to a pastel, dreamy heart layout.
To begin, I resized the Hearts Background cut file to be a bit smaller because I knew I wanted to place the photo on the left side of the page because she was looking toward the right. I backed the file with various patterns - some with holographic foiling - from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I added the file with adhesive foam squares and placed it on the right-center of the background page. This would leave room for the photo on the left and embellishments next to it. The main background was Paper 20 but instead of the main paper I used the one from the Blooming Wild Project Pad which not only has the watercolor hearts but also features holographic stitching which worked beautifully with the papers I used to back the cut file. I matted the photo with a bit of tissue paper and surrounded it with flowers from the Floral Die Cuts pack. I added a title using Thickers and placed final embellishments including holographic hearts from the Chipboard Stickers and clusters of thread in complementary colors around the photo.
I hope you found some inspiration in this layout and choose to try one of Paige's many heart cut files along with her beautiful Blooming Wild collection! Thanks for reading and have a lovely day!
