It's been quite awhile since I've hosted an installment of Whip-Up-A-Page and since today is Wednesday and I happen to have a page lying on my desk ready to share, it would seem that the stars are all perfectly aligned in the scrapbook universe. So let's get to whippin' up that page, shall we?!
This is a simple page design that could fit a variety of themes: Valentine's Day... love...wedding...open heart surgery...OK, maybe I'm stretching it there. But grab some coordinating patterned paper and let's get creating!
- Trim a piece of white cardstock to 12 x 3.5. Adhere across the bottom of the Dotted Swiss background.
- Cut out a variety of hearts in different patterns and sizes. I used some chipboard shapes in my stash as templates for some, and free-handed others. You could also use punches, pre-made die cuts, or a die cut machine to cut your hearts.
- Layer some of the hearts with accents - a scalloped edge of cardstock, stickers, or vellum (I stitched mine into place with my sewing machine.)
- Adhere your assortment of hearts across the seam between the white and tan cardstock. Use foam squares to add dimension to some of the hearts.
- Print photos (mine are approx. 4 x 2.75") and adhere them on the upper left side of layout. Print journaling on white cardstock; cut in to strips and place to the right of photos.
- Die-cut the title from red cardstock. I used my Silhouette to cut out the font Dancing Script, but you could also use stamps with red ink or red alpha stickers for the same effect. Then add your subtitle in small stamps with black ink.
Easy, right? And in no time at all you've got a lovely page straight from the heart. Full of love. And ready for Uncle Earnest's triple bypass photos. Or, uh, whatever other topic your little heart feels like scrapping.
Enjoy your Wednesday, my dearies!
