Love You Lots | Bella Blvd

Tuesday 15 February 2022


Hey everyone! Here is my latest layout for Bella Blvd and I’ve used a mixture of Bella Besties Hearts & Ombre and My Candy Girl. Our prompt this week was to use hearts!

I’ve used a Cut-Out which is a pre-cut cut file with templates for backfilling the letters and shapes. I’ve used a large title that says ‘Love you Lots’. I loved the hearts that replaced the ‘o’s and decided to turn those into sequin shaker pockets.

I started by cutting the heart template from acetate. I stuck this to the back of the Cut-Out. I then made a ‘wall’ of foam pads around the heart apertures. I filled these with sequins: light ones at the top, darker ones in the middle and mainly navy ones in the bottom one.

I backfilled all the letters in ombre style: for the top word I used the lightest part of the ombre side of Hearts & Ombre paper, for the second word I used a pink pattern from My Candy Girl and for the bottom word I used a dark pink hearts side from a Hearts & Ombre paper.

Once all my letters were backfilled and the sequin shakers filled and sealed, I stuck the Cut Out to a sheet of navy Hearts & Ombre paper. I had actually splattered this first with white acrylic paint and trimmed it down a bit. I mounted the background onto white card to give it a border.

I then punched a few hearts from pink papers in different sizes. I added my photo and then added the hearts around the photo and some on the other side of the Cut Out too.

I finished off with a white border drawn with white pen and some more splatters of white acrylic paint.

Many thanks for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed this fun shaker layout!
Happy scrapping
