Sweetheart Layouts that will Melt Your Heart + GIVEAWAY

We have a special treat today with two unbelievably darling layouts from two of our talented design team members. Both Kathy and Melinda loved working with the new Sweethearts Collection and you will fall in LOVE with their layouts. And bonus...we have a giveaway too, so be sure to scroll down to see how you can enter.


Hi Everyone, it's Kathy with a fun layout I created using the Sweetheart Collection.  My husband is constantly saying that future generations will not know I existed by looking at my scrapbooks...so my resolution this year is to "be in the picture!!"  This is a selfie my husband and I took last spring on a trip to Key West to celebrate our 20th Anniversary. 

I wanted to add some dimension to my layout so I die - cut some hearts from my background paper and backed the open spaces with various papers from the Sweetheart line.  I used some foam tape to give the hearts more depth.  I then added more hearts on the top layer and popped them up as well.
I LOVE the little typewriter, it's so cute!  It was actually the inspiration for my title. I added the little heart sticker with some foam tape for fun!
That's all for today, thanks for stopping by to look!

Big Love Layout  
by Melinda Spinks
Hello, it's Melinda here to share a layout I've created using the gorgeous Sweetheart collection for a non Valentine's themed page! I've never really been one to side with convention when it comes to soft and 'pretty' colors on a boys layout, it just takes a bit of balance and the right style of photo.

I chose to really focus on the Kraft papers and embellishments of the collection and only use a hint of pink scattered across the layout. AND can you spy the new Sprinkles Vellum???



If I ever had to choose a favourite product (at the moment) it would have to be epoxy dots... I just can't seem to get enough of them and love how they can be sprinkled across a layout to give a hint of color and whimsy. Loving the new washi tape designs in the thinner widths too!



Now you don't need to wait until Valentine's Day to tell someone special you love them. Why not make a non-Valentine's card and surprise your loved one on a random day... just because!

  96. I love both layouts for different reasons. The first one is fun and bright and the colors pop against the kraft, and gives a whimsical feel. I am a big fan of Melinda's wonderful works of art, and really really like the soft dreamy feel of this layout. Really love the intricate work with the jute, trying to figure out how she did it.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Love the bright shades of pinks and reds. And that typewriter is so cute! I need to get some of those enamel dots. I've seen a lot of those recently and I really like them. I know what you mean about not being is the pics. I think a lot of us are guilty of that since we snap a lot of the photos :)
