Hi FJ friends!
Ulli here with a layout with my favorite product of the gorgeous Bella collection: the cute vellum hearts. When I saw them I had directly the idea to use all of them on one page and to cut out my pictures in heart shapes too. Here you can see my layout.
First I cut my Essentials White Cardstock to 8.5x11 inches. Then I searched for some Christmas pictures in black and white. I used the Bella Vellum Hearts as stencils and shaped the pictures into hearts in different sizes. I laid the vellum hearts on the pictures, held them with one hand (left side) and used my scissors to cut with my other hand (right hand) the pictures into heart shapes. Then I also made hearts from the amazing Essentials White Cardstock in different sizes. I did it the same way with my scissors and used the vellum hearts as stencils.
Then I used red, pink, turquoise and black yarn and stitched lines on the middle of four white cardstock hearts. I folded them in the middle and pierced some holes into them with a piercing tool before stitching.
Then I folded all the heart pictures, vellum hearts and white cardstock hearts in the middle and arranged them on my 8.5x11 inch layout. I began with the bigger ones on the top and put the smaller ones in the middle of the page. So I got a transition from big hearts to the small ones. When I found the right positions I glued them with 3D dots and with my adhesive runner. I love the dimensional look of this page. And its so easy to create this effect.
I used the Bella Stamp Set and stamped the word "Joy" onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut it a little bit smaller and glued it on a red label from the Bella Essentials Label Stickers. I added it with 3D dots on the left side on the bottom of my page. Then I glued a second one in aqua under it. So I also had the title on my page.
I used the cute mini dot stamps from the Bella stamp set and stamped them on my layout. Sometimes on cardstock hearts. Sometimes beside them. I also added some more small vellum hearts on pictures and on bigger hearts. At the end I added many of the super cute Bella Epoxy Dots in pink, red, aqua and green here and there. I always love to finish my layouts with them. Then I wrote "December 2019" on the layout by hand to know when the pictures were taken.
I hope you like my layout with many hearts and maybe I could inspire you to make a page like this for your December album or for another album. Here you can see more details.
Have a wonderful week!
