A heart full of love, hope & dreams

Let me start with a disclaimer~ I can NOT sew! I think some of you might already know this, but when you see this next layout it will certainly be evident.

But, I think the best way to learn is to just do it. Like Nike says! So, I did.

Just please don’t look too closely.

This layout is for the Studio Calico NSD challenge to use confetti on your layout.

My layout~

I used CCR to place my heart from Letter Envy Font and phrase from Nursery Rhymes in the exact place I wanted it. I love that it so much easier to see on my computer screen than on my tiny Gypsy screen.

And I used the original Provo Craft die cut machine to make the confetti~

I used these high tech tools on my scraps of various Bella Blvd paper lines, added some Martha Stewart sequins and gems to a party bag and taped it to the back of my white sheet of cardstock.

I then decided my layout needed a little something and that’s where the sewing came in. Would you believe I even read the instruction manual to the sewing machine? It’s not perfect, but it’s a start!

I used~
Studio Calico City of Lights kit contents:Sassafrass Butterfly Die Cut Stickers
Add on Kit: kesiart Itinerance Athenes paper
Bella Blvd Sunshine and Happiness papers
White cardstock, black cardstock, Seam Binding Ribbon, MS gems and sequins
Letter Envy Font, Nursery Rhymes

  1. It’s a great sewing start! Love your early Provo Craft tools and your super clever filled heart. I am really enjoying the Cricut Craft Room and the ability to line up the cut on the paper too. And what a lovely duo!

  2. Great pic…and layout!!! Now, please stop being so dang productive…you’re makin’ the rest of us look (& feel!) bad!!!
