Hi hi and welcome to my blog today for this fun share with goodies from the Scrappingclearly store!
I was sent this gorgeous Heidi Swapp Marquee Love Chalkboard heart by Kylie and was totally in love straight away. It took me a little while to work out what I was going to do to it to pretty it up and make it more “mine” but when I worked out what I was going to do it all came together super quick!!
I am going to hang this on my craft room door and perhaps leave messages for my husband and children when I don’t want to be disturbed while I’m tucked away in here 😉 Or perhaps they could leave me little love notes 😉 Haha!
Here are a couple of close ups
You can see here that I have layered up a flower from the Maggie Holmes Bloom ephemera pack and some of those totally gorgeous butterflies I hand cut from the “Flutter” pattered paper.
I also added in some splatters from the ever reliable and so so pretty Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in Gold.
This heart is actually a DIY job 😀 I adore the layered hearts that came out in this collection and never got my hands on any (apparently the rest of the population also loved them!!) so I made my own. It was a very simple process! I started with a big heart die that I cut out of plain white card stock. I grabbed some of the patterned papers from the Maggie Holmes Bloom 6×6 paper pad and also this one from a scrap from previous project. I’ve also layered in some of that oh so pretty gold printed vellum and a strip from the washi tape booklet. After it was all stuck down I took it to my sewing machine and used some gold thread to sew along most of the lines and I really love how this turned out!
And finally, a photo of this light up in all of its glory 🙂
That’s it for me for today!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and happy scrapping!
