Hello crafty friends! Thanks so much for being here.
Day 6 – Floral Heart
I worked with the AC Digital collection of Paige’s, Turn The Page Collection . Gosh I love this collection. Like, really, really love it! I originally bought loads of it back in 2018. But I’ve slowly used it all up (that gets the 😢 face). But printing it at home is the next best thing and it’s fab to print the ephemeral in whatever size I want! If you missed it in 2018, here’s some cute projects from the past.
Using Hammermill 80 lb Cardstock I buy at Amazon, I printed five papers and a selection of ephemera. If you bought the Love bundle, you received Paige’s beautiful, Floral Heart cut file, today.
Once I had the cut file fully paper-backed, I trimmed most of the left side off with the plan to add it back on the right side of my layout. To make a background, I did the same with my Scalloped Heart Cut File (click here and download it free for your personal use).
I backed the scalloped opening on each side with Vellum. Then, behind the vellum, I added Paper 5 from Turn The Page. Time for stitching!
I chain stitched the scalloped opening with all six strands of variegated DMC Color Variation Floss #4170 Whispering Wind. Because the background heart is scalloped, a pretty, lacy effect was created by stitching. Once stitched, I’ve popped up Paige’s Floral Heart cut file over the scalloped hearts in the background.
Here’s what I planned in the Silhouette Design Studio.
Check out my Cameo Tutorial at the bottom of this post to learn how I planned it and copied the flowers and leaves from the cut file to make a pretty cluster with my photos.
If you have any questions, I’m always happy to help!
See you again soon ! Cheers, Kelly 💗
