Sugar Shoppe is the perfect name for this collection because every piece of paper, sticker, embellishment etc reminds me of walking around a sweets store as a child. So much to look at, so many yummy colours and patterns and little bits and pieces that just make you want to 'taste' everything. Now I didn't actually 'eat' the paper but I did manage to go a little wild on this layout.
First step in creating the heart feature on this layout was to cut a pile of strips 3/4" in width in various patterns and colours.
I then adhered the strips to a piece of backing cardstock and then roughed up the edges a little to add a bit of dimension to the panel.
Next step was to cut out a heart shape to use as a template for the hole. I laid the heart in the centre of the panel and using a new blade in my craft knife I cut around the heart and right through the strips and the backing sheet.
I then adhered the panel to my layout by using some thin foam pop dots just to raise it off the layout slightly so a small shadow was created under the heart which added to the look I was after.
Final process was to embellish the heart using identical colour schemes as the strips of paper and simply continuing the line down through the heart. Now I won't tell little white lies and say this was a relatively quick step because it took me forever, however it was fun to do and I was happily using up lots of my embellishment stash.
