La La La Love You! with Wei Wei Wang

Hello crafty friends! It’s Wei Wei with you here, and today I wanted to show you how I used some of the latest digital files in the store with the  January 2022 kit and add-ons.

This 8-1/2 x 11 inch layout uses several elements from the  January 2022 kit and add-ons, however, the main points of interest are the hearts on the center of the layout, and these were created using a simple technique with my Silhouette Cameo.

Here are my steps and tips:

1. I imported the heart tag PNG file into Silhouette Studio, opened the Trace window and selected the Trace Area.

2. I only wanted to use heart images on my layout, so I dragged the box around the area that includes all the hearts which I wanted to trace.

3. I used the “ungroup” option in order to reorganize the distance of the heart images. Then, I selected the “group” option, so all the heart images were grouped together again. 

4. Next, I adjusted the size of the hearts to fit my design.

After cutting my background, I had the heart die cut pieces left and I decided to make the most of them to create my own embellishments. As you can see, the 3D hearts that I created consisted of Love Notes Die Cuts and the die cut hearts, which I colored with pink Copic marker, then folded both layers in the middle and stitched.

I backed the hearts with small pieces of paper from the Love You Paper Stack. I also added stamping texture using the Currently Stamp and Love You Stamp. To create more dimension, I added hearts from the Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers.

I arranged my embellishments along with more of the Love Notes Die Cuts, Light Pink Cardstock Label Stickers, Heart and Star Chipboard Stickers and Love Chipboard Stickers for a fun cascade on the right edge.

I used the Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp and stamped “LA LA” onto vellum before adhering the letters to the embellishments.

After adding those main elements, I layered my photo with journaling tags from the January 2022 Kit, then embellished around it with Light Pink Cardstock Label Stickers, adorable pieces from the Love Notes Die Cuts and Love Chipboard Stickers. The heart cut file and “LA LA LA LOVE YOU!” chipboard sticker fit perfectly with this layout and of course had to be used. 

On the left side, I decorated with a few scraps from the Love You Paper Stack.

To add a special touch, I finished my layout using puffy stickers in Warm Tones, Cool Tones and Neutrals.

I love the dimensional look of this page, and it’s so easy to create this effect! Be sure to share with us in our Facebook Group or on Instagram using the #EllesStudio hashtag if this inspires you to create, too!
