I’ve been on a mission to simplify for the last few months and that includes paring down my immense hoard of scrapbook supplies. I tend to hold on to supplies I love which is really a terrible plan because after awhile they start to look a bit dated and I pass them over for things that are a bit more fresh. So my goal for this layout was to just use up a lot of little supplies while making it feel really girly.
I cut the different sized hearts out using my Making Memories Slice. I would have loved to have stitched them on but I am terrible with the sewing machine and did not have the patience to hand stitch. And by “patience” I mean there is no way my two year old would have sat still long enough for me to stitch those on. She’s in constant motion, that one.
To make the glitter dots I just used a hot glue gun to make tiny dots and then sprinkled silver glass glitter over them. The very next day I went to Michaels and discovered that they make GLITTER GLUE STICKS which would have been really nice to know like, yesterday. Also, I don’t know if you know this but I am very good at putting letter stickers on layouts in a straight line. Or not. Thanks for nothing, astigmatism.
This page isn’t for an album, it’s going in a 12×12 scrapbook frame in my mother’s house so that’s why I went a little bit crazy with the dimensional elements, since it won’t be lying flat. Isn’t my niece the cutest? TFL!
