Love Is A Work Of Heart

Friday, June 11, 2010

As this week is coming to a close, we wish to send you off with two more projects from Lindsey. 

The first is a Wedding Layout using the Basic Grey Cappella Collection Pack!

Check out the Roses Flourish embellishment from Prima! They are so simple, but give your project just a little bit of elegance to be set above the rest! Not to mention they work very well with the Cappella Collection Pack.

And what do you think of this Embellished Butterfly from Jenni Bowlin?  Did you know that this particular embellishment comes in six different colors?

Here's a good look at all the different elements together. Didn't Lindsey do an amazing job at creating visual interest?  She knows just how to use many different pieces and objects to make one fantastic layout!

Now we know you want to know how to make this beautiful layout because so do we!  So to curve your curiousity, here are the instructions.


Basic Grey: Cappella Paper Pack
Basic Grey: Cappella Ribbon Doilies (Blue)
Jenni Bowlin: Embellished Butterflies (Brown)
Brown Marker / Pen
Circuit Cartridge: Songbird
     >s< Frame Size 10”
Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
     - Bundled Sage
     - Spun Sugar
     - Pumice Stone
Prima: Say It In Pearls - Roses Flourish (Cream)

Technique Tip: Many avoid layering the same colored and patterned papers for fear that the papers will blend into each other. However, if you outline and layer in such a way that the patterns are clearly visible, it comes out looking very put together and organized. For example, in this project the “Our Day" sticker looks as if it would blend into the paper behind, but when you outline it and give it a slight tilt, you break up the pattern around it and create more visual interest.


Step 1: Take whichever paper you wish to use as your background for the page, and ink the entire page using the Pumice Stone Distress Ink. Next, take your second page and using your Songbird Cricut Cartridge, cut out your frame (>s< Frame Size 10”). After the frame is cut out, cut it in half. Using your Bundled Sage Distress Ink, ink all the edges of the frame. Glue the frame down on the middle of the background page, but tilt it slightly to the left. With your other Cappella paper, cut out a 10 ½" x 6" piece and ink it with the Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Glue this piece on the bottom half of your page so that it covers the last ½" of the frame.

Step 2: Cut a strip of the Cappella paper ½" wide and 11" in length. Glue it down on an angle across the 10 ½" x 6" rectangle. Along the top of the strip you just attached, glue the Cappella Doily. Finally, choose a sticker edge from the Cappella sticker sheet and place it along the bottom of the rectangle.

Step 3: How to create your picture mat: Take your Brown Vine Sheet and cut it 5"x5". Glue this piece down on the right side of the frame. Take your Sticker Lace 12"x12 strip (can be found in the Cappella Paper Pack) and cut off a 5" long piece. Stick this piece along the left side of the picture mat.

Step 4: On the Cappella Sticker Sheet, find and remove the “Our Day” Journal Sticker and place it in the bottom left corner of your page over the doilies. Using your brown font pen outline the edge of the "Our Day" sticker. Lastly, take the large brown flower from the Cappella Sticker Sheet and place it just over the bottom left corner of the “Our Day” sticker.

Step 5: Take your Say It In Pearls Roses Flourish embellishment and stick it on the left side of your page just above the "Our Day" sticker. Next, take a medium flower from the Cappella Sticker Sheet and stick it just below the pearls. Place two more flower stickers, one at the top of the pearl strand, and one at the bottom left corner of the picture mat. Finally, off to the side of the pearl strand place the “The wedding" sticker from the Cappella Sticker Sheet.

Step 6: At the top right corner of the picture mat place one more flower from the Cappella Sticker Sheet as well as a Jenni Bowlin Embellished Butterfly. Along the right side of the page, just below the butterfly, spell out “LOVE” using the letters found in the Cappella Sticker Sheet (the bottom of each letter should touch the edge of the page).

Now this second project from Lindsey is a lovely decoration piece. 

Lindsey used the Cappella Collection Pack as well as tons of embellishments to create this cute little display book. 


Vintage Sew-On Buttons in Cream from Jenni Bowlin and Prima Say It In Pearls give a little extra dimension to this project.

The Rub-On Stickers from the Cappella Collection Pack are just too cute.  You can find all things Cappella HERE!

The Betania Bling it On from Basic Grey adds some great darker contrast. Not to mention is helps with the delicate nature of the whole.
We think the finished product is just fantastic. Lindsey really knows her stuff!  And we want to let you have a chance to ask her for advice so we're going to have another Q&A with Lindsey on Tuesday, June 15th!  Join us on our Facebook page at 12:00PM MST to ask Lindsey any questions you might have. And don't forget, though we may be featuring Lindsey's wedding projects this week, you are welcome to look back through her projects and ask about any of her previous work as well! You can also email Lindsey at lindseyfillmore @ yahoo . com.
Have an absolutely splendid weekend and we'll see you next week!
Happy scrapping!
