Make & Take Monday

Woo hoo, a scrapbook page! It's been a while since I've had time to scrapbook.


Here's how I made it...

1) I used a 12x12" sheet of Soft Suede cardstock, a new In Color from Stampin' Up, as the background. I inked the edges with a sponge and brown ink.
2) Then I punched lots and lots of hearts from scrap Riding Hood Red designer paper using the Heart to Heart punch. {You don't have hearts... stars, butterflies, or circles would work, too}


3) I adhered a horizontal 4x6" photo about 2 inches from the right corner of the background paper.
4) I used a sponge and rubbed the edges of all the hearts with brown ink to help give each heart dimension.
5) I scattered the hearts in a line down the page just to the left side of the photo. I used a repositional adhesive on the backs of mine so I could play around with them until I liked the look. Once I decided on placment of the hearts, I added thick foam adhesive to the back of a few hearts to give them a 3D look.
6) I wrote the date on Chocolate Chip cardstock and punched it out using the Round Tab punch, then inked the edges with black ink. I tucked it up under the bottom left corner of the photo.
7) Then I added my title. I used naked chipboard letters from Stampin' Up on this page. I included my journaling under the title.


This one is pretty simple for my style. I usually have lots of layers and tons of embellishments but I thought this turned out really cute.

I hope you enjoyed Make & Take Monday. If you create a scrapbook page or even a card using this page as inspiration we would all love to see it. Simply add a link to a photo of your project in the comments.

Have a wonderful week!
