She is My Heart

This sweet little girl of mine has my heart like you wouldn't believe. All my kids do of course but something about this Crate Paper Close Knit collection from the October Gossamer Blue kit just made my heart feel all warm and fuzzy so I created this.

See? Aside from the heart background paper and the tiny hearts paper around the photo, I count 8 - 9 hearts on the page, plus the word "heart".

I added this large multi-colored chevron print across my page but it was a bit too boring for my liking so I cut small strips of paper in varying widths and lengths. I then added my hearts, some misting and some stitching and I was happy again. but before I laid everything down and added the mist and stitching, I got it all perfectly lined up how I wanted it and took a photo. I then pulled everything off the page so I could...

draw the big heart lightly in pencil and use my sewing machine to stitch a gigantic heart.  Actually, I was scrapping with my friends, Audrey, Diana and Sara so I borrowed Audrey's sewing machine. Thanks Audrey!

I put everything back in place, fussy cut some flowers, used my CAMEO to cut part of my title, added more stitching, the gold mist and embellishments. I completely "HEART" the end result.

Thanks for stopping by today. Now go on and get crafty!


Oh, and if you are going out to celebrate the New Year, please stay safe! Watch out for those crazies out there and if you drink, please don't drive.
