Hey, Elle’s Studio friends! It’s Marsha here today, and I’m excited to share my first blog post of the new year! I love using hearts on my layouts and was excited to feature the new Love Notes Die Cuts on my traveler’s notebook spread!
Supplies | January 2022 Kit, Love Notes Die Cuts, Love Chipboard Stickers, Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers – Neutrals, Love You Paper Stack, Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp, Love You Stamp, Small Tile Alphabet Stamp, Daily Tabs Stamp, Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die
To begin my layout, I trimmed a patterned paper from the Love You Paper Stack to use as a base for the left page. I chose several die cut hearts from the Love Notes Die Cuts and arranged them in a column on the page. The colors used in this pack of die cuts are so dreamy! I also hand-cut a smaller heart from a gray patterned paper to use at the top of the page. Next, I began embellishing the hearts with the Love Chipboard Stickers, the January 2022 Kit tags, and neutral Tiny Shapes and Dots Puffy Stickers. To complete this page, I added stamping to one of the hearts using the Love You Stamp and Daily Tabs Stamp. I loved including tone-on-tone embellishing—it kept the layout from looking too busy even though lots of color and embellishments were used on the page.
I added my photo on the other page of the spread. Because I printed my picture in black and white, it would work well with any color scheme! I stamped the word “us” with the Large Heart Jane Alphabet Stamp and trimmed it out with the coordinating Large Jane Alphabet Metal Die. I love how it looks layered over the heart die cut!
Next, I stamped onto the “we go together like…” tag from the January 2022 Kit with the Small Tile Alphabet Stamp and black ink. I saw this quote on Pinterest and thought it was perfect for my layout documenting a photo of my husband and I enjoying lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant.
The tag flips up to reveal the journaling on another heart die cut from the Love Notes Die Cuts. This layout includes so many hearts, and I just love how it turned out!
