Happy Holidays friends. Todays layout was inspired with this stunning layout by Daniela Janke. I too will be incorporating a pretty stitched heart with layered bouquets and a double border.
Using the November 2021 Kits, this is what I came up with.
Daniela’s layout had a plain white heart, but to add more colour and use more of my kit, I turned my heart into a stitched grid. Here’s how:
- I folded a piece of cardstock in half, then drew half a heart and fussy cut it out.
- Using a ruler, I made a pattern for the grid. I drew random lines and cut out the cardstock heart.
- I then trimmed 1/4″ off each side of the pattern pieces.
- I traced the cardstock pieces onto patterned paper from the Main Kit. Once sewn, I taped them all back in their place on my white background.
Because the Chipboard Frames in the kit are small, I went with two photos instead of one.
For a little sparkle, I added some silver metallic thread into the Fabric Bow. I like to mix the patterns because that’s how I roll 😀 Daniela’s layout has a double mat around it, the 2nd one is red. I used red glitter sprinkled on double sided tape to achieve mine.
I hope you found a couple of things you’d enjoy on your own pretty pages using the Hip Kits. Stop by our website to see the gorgeous January Kits!
Have a Happy New Year!
