You Make My Heart Happy Layout by Kelly Daye

Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Hi friends! Kelly Daye here with a spring layout that I made with Paige's Blooming Wild collection and two of her cut files: You Make My Heart Happy and the Doily Mandala.
I cut the Doily Mandala from vellum to lay beneath my title and photos It works like white gesso, fading the background pape, but unlike gesso, it also adds a little pretty texture. I cut the You Make My Heart Happy title from white cardstock and instead of backing the letters I cut them out of Blooming Wild papers then popped them up with foam tape. I love the dimension this technique adds. I made the hearts 3D by doing an ‘Interior Offset’ in Silhouette Design Studio. Then stitching the top 2 together and popping them up over the cut file for even more dimension. I chain stitched the entire cut file with DMC Color Variations floss. Changing the floss to sort of coordinate with the nearest patterned paper. This might be my very most favorite stitching project of all time. I’m so in love with all the colors and how they mixed together seamlessly. I’ve used DMC 4040, 4069, 4080, 4095, 4170, and 4220.
I cut a thin strip of acetate to adhere "SPRING" letters from the Sugarplum Wishes Mini Thickers. The large butterflies were fussy cut from Paper 3 of the Splendid collection - they were the perfect match! All other ephemera is from Blooming Wild. I hope you got a couple of scrappy ideas of how you can use Paige’s collections and cut files for your own pretty spring projects!
