Here is my ispiration (from Pinterest) for this page:
I started with my Gypsy and a Quote that I have said to myself a lot since I became a mom!
I knew the size of circle I needed to fit my 4x6 photo. I put a circle from Art Philosophy in the center of the page sized to 4.15w x 3.96h.
I placed hearts from Art Philosophy around the circle ranging in size from .73 inches to 1.59 inches. I used my rotate button to place the hearts exactly where I wanted them to be on my white cardstock.
I place the quote LOVE is patient love is kind from A Child's year on my mat.
I took my blade housing out of my cricut and replaced it with my Cri-Kits gel pen holder and a red pen. I loaded my white cardstock and let the cricut draw in my words.
Here is the paper with the words drawn on.
I trimmed my paper 1/8" on each side and mounted it to a piece of Valentine's Day paper (with the picture showing through the circle).
I cut out the hearts in burgundy cardstock. After I cut the hearts out, I placed the leftover piece (aka template) over my white page and adhered the hearts on.
I carefully peeled the template off the layout.
I cut out a second set of hearts out of the same paper I used under the white cardstock. I folded the hearts in the middle and adhered them on top of the burgundy hearts.
I used a combination of pearls and gems to decorate the center of the hearts.
Here is my completed layout with my handsome boys! Thanks for stopping by!
Your next stop in the hop is the lovely LUCY.
