Heartfelt Event LOVE Layout


As promised I'm back with the first of the layouts I was asked by Stampin' Up! to create for the scrapbooking display boards at the Heartfelt Events to be held around Australia and New Zealand.

Thanks to my very good friend Christine for taking this photo for me. This was the first layout I made for the Heartfelt Event.  You may notice that it uses some of the Twitterpated DSP, which is making a return in the upcoming Annual Catalogue.  Yay!

A few sneak peeks of new products in this layout.  The stamp set is a gorgeous set that I got at Convention.  Such a pretty set, called Daydream Medallions.  The diecut alphas are also new for the Big Shot.

You may notice that the photo is a mix of colour and black and white.  This is my "photoshop when you don't have photoshop trick".  I print the same photo twice, once in colour and once n B&W.  I then trim the colour photo and pop it over the B&W photo using dimensionals.  It's such a lovely effect and so easy to achieve - a great way to highlight part of the photo.  Here's a view of the side showing the photos popped up.

The big butterfly was die cut using the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Bigz Die.  The smaller butterflies are another sneak peek of the new butterfly punch.  We were able to play with it at Convention and I punched out some extras while I had the punch.  Lucky I did so I could use them on the layout!  I stamped all the butterflies using the Creative Elements Stamp set, curled their wings and popped them up on dimensionals.

You'll notice another sneak peek on the butterflies - the gorgeous vintage faceted buttons.  They are so pretty and sparkly!  These were meant to be used on my Make and Takes from Convention but I hadn't gotten around to completing them so fortunately I was able to use them on the layout.

For a bit of extra sparkle I spritzed the butterflies with some Isocol/Champagne Mist shimmer paint mix.

  1. That's a beautiful LO, Tina, and what gorgeous children!I liked your non-photoshop tip, think I might be able to use that.LOL I couldn't make it to the event, so glad you've shared your work here.

  2. What a fabulous layout, Tina. Love the medallion background and the black and white and grey background really makes the photo pop! I wish I had been able to go - hopefully next year.
