This month the challenge here at If It's Groovy is to "Have a Heart!" The Groovy Chicks are going to show you a month full of heartfelt projects and beginning the month is Darlene. Here she is!
My daughter was such cutie pie in the summer of ‘08 with her little bathing suit and her tender baby love. :) I so miss these days, when she was so small and so sweet. I found this picture of her and knew I had to scrap it with this sweethearts theme… after all, she is my sweetest sweetheart. :)
I used a glittery Martha Stewart paper collection (clearance at Walmart) and used only 2 sheets of paper, because I utilized the front and back patterned designs to make my embellishments throughout. I doodled all the hearts on the blue background paper, cut out glittery patterned paper buttons, and cut out all of the hearts freehand from the same background paper (I cut out a square that would be covered by the center matting).
I tried a new technique with the 3D-ness of the scalloped circles. I used some old Basic Grey chipboard as the adhesive for the 3D effect on the scallops and hearts-- this worked even better than using expensive 3D dimensional tape! Next time your low or out of dimensional tape, look through your chipboard for ones you don’t like or won’t ever use, and create instant height and dimension on your projects. :)
Just because it’s February doesn’t mean you have you scrapbook all red, white, and pink colors—try other colors with a heart theme to get into the Valentine mood and see what you can come up with. :)
Come share your heart(ful) creations with us for February’s Have a Heart Challenge on If It’s Groovy!
