Heartfelt Creations: Smile Layout

Hello scrappy friends!
Recently I had a tutorial posted on the Heartfelt Creations blog, and in case you missed it…I thought I would share it here too. Here is my die versatility “Smile” layout.


Step 1: Create a layered background using patterned papers from the Wild Rose Collection. Distress the edges of the light pink patterned paper.

Die cut 2 of each of the Elaborate Oval Frames dies from white cardstock, and the largest layer from light green patterned paper. Die cut 1 of each of the Decorative Circle Frames dies. The largest layer and the scalloped circle in Gold Luxe Cardstock, and the other layers in white cardstock. Use the large and small circle dies for the white cardstock photo mat, and to cut out the photo.


Step 2: When adhering the middle section of dies together use both 3D Foam tape and regular adhesive. The photo and mat are adhered together, then use 3D Foam to attach that to the white die cut layer. Next, regular adhesive for the largest 2 layers.


Step 3: With both of the side die pieces, again use a combination of regular adhesive and 3D Foam adhesive. Adhere the largest 2 pieces using regular adhesive, then use 3D Foam for the remaining 2 layers.

These 2 pieces then get adhered straight to the layout background creating a border across, just slightly above the middle of the layout. Then using 3D Foam adhesive, add the middle photo die cut piece.


Step 4: Using the Small Wild Rose cling stamps, stamp and die cut 4 sets of each size using Baroque Burgundy ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add yellow ink (Crushed Curry) to the middle of each flower using daubers. Add pink ink (Berry Burst) to the petals of all of the flowers using daubers.

Using the Leafy Accents Stamp set, stamp 1 set of the curly leaves, and 3 sets of the other large leaves using dark green ink (Always Artichoke) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add colour to the leaves using a slightly lighter green ink (Old Olive).

Shape the flowers and leaves using the coordinating 3D Shaping Molds. Assemble the layered flowers and add Prills to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive.


Step 5: Add a large flower above and below the matted photo, and one on either side of the matted photo as well. Then add a small flower to the far sides of the die cut border. I always add the leaves last. Add some around each flower, and addition leaves around the middle die cut centerpiece.

Finally, add a few pink gems to the decorative dies, and the gold sticker word to the bottom right hand corner of the layout.
