Awesome with Sheree Forcier

Happy Friday!  We're welcoming our November guest designer, Sheree Forcier back to the blog today.  She's got another beautiful layout to share with us:

Hello crafty friends!

Today I’m sharing a layout with a background that I created using the fabulous Heart of Gold Die. I love how versatile this die is!

To create this background I used my Big Shot to cut nine hearts from some plain white cardstock, then I cut seven more hearts from a variety of patterned paper scraps that I had in my stash. I tapped all the white pieces out of the white hearts and selected one coloured piece from each coloured heart to insert into each white heart shape.

I love the subtle effect of the white hearts on the white cardstock background with those little pops of colour! To adhere the hearts to the background cardstock I used a sheet of microdots which completely covered the back of each heart with a sticky coating, then I use a little liquid glue behind each coloured piece to stick them into place.

To finish off the background I added some subtle texture with a stitched border and some messy stitching to the edge of three of the hearts.

Once the background was done I was ready to add my photo and other embellishments. The Awesome Die was perfect to use as the title for this page! I chose the same pink patterned paper that I’d used in the background hearts backed with some plain white cardstock and I love how it stands out against the photo.

I stamped “you are so” from the Awesome Stamp Set onto some plain white cardstock and trimmed it down before adding it just above the die cut word.

After selecting a few more stickers, embellishments and some twine from my stash my layout was complete!

If you would like to watch my process you can see my video below:

I had so much fun creating this layout and I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how it came together. I’ll be back again soon with another project to share!
