American Crafts Blog Hop
Happy Day everyone! What a fun weekend!!! And welcome to the American Crafts blog hop! Woot Woot! Party!!! You are here from Cindy Tobey's blog and I am so EXCITED that you stopped by!!!
We were challenged to use all of the new American Crafts lines on a single page to show how incredibly perfectly they all can work together! All of these lines!!!
Here is what I came up with...
The heart was so fun to make. I just hand cut a large heart out of cardstock and covered it with strips of patterned paper. Once it was all finished being covered, I carefully trimmed the excess from the center of the heart and then machine stitched it to 12x12 cardstock. My photos fit inside the heart and I embellished places with brads, flair, trim, buttons and a tag. Lastly, I punched small hearts and glued them to the cardstock in more random places, like ink splatters would be. And voila! It is finished!
I took these pictures on my baby's 5 year old photo shoot in August. She had a lot of fun walking around with me finding cool locations. And how could we pass up a big green wall with a 5 painted right on it?!?! It was perfect!
