Lucky Me

Scrapbook Layout - Lucky Me -

A quick look at the layout.

Hi there!,

As i continue to upload the many finished layouts to my blog.  I am happy to see that all of them look different form each other, but have a lot in common at the same time.  This particular layout was inspired by the cut file, and my love for all things stitched.

The string heart background of the layout.

To start this layout, I  just drew a heart on the page, and used a piercing tool to create a stitching guide for the string art.   The colors of the thread were chosen to match the colors in the Life is Beautiful collection from Fancy Pants Designs.

Next i added the title of the layout.  This was created using a Silhouette store cut file, and backed with papers from the collection.  I chose to place the title at the bottom of the heart, but added a bit of gesso behind the cut file, so that the pattern would disappear a bit, and the title will be more visible in the layout.

The picture of my 3 kids (one of last Christmas outtakes, and a favorite of mine) was placed in the middle of the heart.  I used papers from the collection to layer the picture, and small clusters around it, too.

To finish the layout, I added some enamel dots, and a few lines of journal.  I love the  fact that the page has a fresh look even though the picture was taken in the middle of winter.  

Thank you for visiting the blog!,  as always let me know if you have any questions about this layout.

see you all soon!!
