Valentine Layout with Embossed Hearts
Hi today I wanted to share a scrapbook layout for Valentine’s day, it is a Valentine layout with embossed hearts. I used a few different embossing folders as well as two different sets of Sizzix dies. Here is the list of supplies that I used.
Darice Doily Embossing Folder – SKU: 1218–99
Darice Dot Background – SKU: 1217-67
Darice Swirl Background Embossing Folder – SKU: 1215-62
Sizzix Thinlits Alluring Hearts (3 die set) – SKU: 658916
Sizzix Framelits Banners Pennant Scallop – SKU: 657571
Silhouette Cameo Cutting Machine (for lettering on layout.)
All of the products above can be found at the Cut at Home website.
Other products used: My Minds Eye Lost and Found – Record It, Coordinations-Core Essentials card stock in Burgundy and Concerto, American Crafts Glitter card stock, MME Follow your Heart twine and some gems.
The first thing I did was cut all of my pieces, I cut 6 solid hearts, 1 heart overlay and 5 banners, I used the second largest banner die. Then I embossed 5 of the solid hearts and the overlay as well as a 5″ x 7″ paper for the Doily frame. The next step is sanding the embossed pieces.
After all the pieces were finished I was ready to start my layout, I placed the banner pieces on a 12″ x 12″ piece of scrapbook paper from the Record it collection. I played with the pieces until I was happy with how the banner looked then I used Tim Holtz tiny attacher to staple them together. Next I attached the twine, i used two kinds of twine a pink striped and a kraft color. After I attached the twine I attached the embossed hearts. I used two colors of Coredinations card stock and two embossing folders for the hearts and alternated them on the layout. I used the dot background and swirl background embossing folders.
When I was happy with my banner I cut my letters on the Silhouette, I used a font and letters that are available on the Silhouette on line store. I also cut a scalloped banner. I did decide to emboss two of the letters that I cut on the Silhouette.
For the frame where the picture will go I rounded the edges of the embossed paper with 1/2 inch corner rounder, I cut a smaller piece of paper to fit inside of the frame and rounded those corners as well.
Finally I arranged my pieces on my layout, I never glue or tape anything down until I am sure that I’m happy with my layout, once I was happy with my layout I adhered everything and added a little bit of bling!
Here is my finished layout.
All I need now is an adorable picture of my granddaughter in her Valentine’s day outfit! It’s nice to have a layout done and ready. I hope you enjoyed my post, till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin,
