Create Your Happy Layout | Sheree Forcier

Hello friends!  I'm so happy to be sharing my first Heidi Kit project with you all today.  I wanted to document what my daughter Madison is dreaming of doing when she grows up.  She's only 10 years old so of course this may change in the coming years but I think it's still something that she'll enjoy looking back on when she's older. 

I've had a die cut white cardstock butterfly sitting on my desk for ages and I thought it would fit perfectly onto this page so I started by stitching a butterfly trail onto the cardstock background using my sewing machine.  This had to be my first step since I knew my journalling strips and other bits and pieces would overlap it.

Once that was done I created some layers behind my photo with the tag, pocket, navy patterned paper and a floral journalling card.  I also scrunched up a scrap piece of vellum from my stash to add to the layers and add a little texture.  I added one of the cute little oval paperclips from the Willow Kit to the top right and tucked the 'dream' die cut underneath, then layered two of the floral die cuts onto the bottom left of the photo.

The 'create your happy' journalling card became the title for my page.  I simply cut the banner shape from the journalling card, curled it a little with my fingers and added it underneath my photo.

For the left side of the page I cut the scalloped branding strip from the blue solid colour paper and some strips from four of the pretty patterned papers in the kit.  The strips were all cut to the same width but slightly different lengths.  I then adhered them down the page, added some machine stitching and the journalling strips.

To finish it off I added some stamping!  I used two cute stamps from the Heidi Stamp Set, and a stamp from the Willow Stamp Set too.

I have a video for this layout to share as well…

I really love the gorgeous colours in this kit and look forward to sharing my next Heidi project with you soon!
