I {Heart} You | Pretty Little Studio

Hey there friends! I’m back with a layout for Pretty Little Studio using the XOXO Collection by Hello Heather.

The inspiration for my layout came from this 3×4 card from the Love This Journaling Card Pack. I loved the title work on the journaling card and wanted to repeat that on my layout!

To mimic the journaling card, I used the Little Letters Cut File from The Cut Shoppe and backed the “I” & “U” with a patterned paper from the 4×6 Paper Pack. I also cut a heart, using my Cricut, to use in place of the “O” using the same 4×6 patterned paper. I added a splash of color using Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, Cracked Pistachio & Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks to the white cardstock background before I adhered the cut file.

I then moved onto my photo layers. I trimmed down one of the 4×6 teal patterned papers and also used vellum from my stash to back the photo. I used a couple floral clusters from the Blooming Love Die Cut Pack, a maroon label from the Always Labels Cut Apart, and a couple tabs from the Love You Die Cuts Pack to embellish the photo. This photo was taken on Valentine’s Day at my kiddo’s school. I was using an Instagram filter that had lip prints on the screen so Aidan was making a kissy face to the camera to go along with the lips, but I happened to snap the photo when there were not any lip prints showing. I thought the photo was just too cute! It was the perfect Valentine’s photo!!

I needed to balance the design, so I created a cluster to the bottom left of the cut file. I used the same color scheme as my photo cluster. I used 2 small florals from the Blooming Love Die Cut Pack, a couple tiny phrase stickers from the Teal Romantic Words Sticker Sheet, and a few die cuts from the Love You Die Cuts Pack, and a circle from the Darling Journaling Die Cut Pack.

A Boy & His Dog | Pretty Little Studio

Hey friends! I’m back with you today to share a 12×12 layout that I created for Pretty Little Studio using the XOXO Collection designed by Hello Heather.

I loved the designs & the colors of the Washi Strips and wanted those to be my focus of my layout. First, I adhered the washi strips onto a scrap piece of white cardstock and then fussy cut each strip. This allowed me to use the washi like die cuts on the layout. I painted a broad pink strip of acrylic paint onto the white cardstock background using a brayer and then adhered the washi strips in a vertical fashion on the cardstock.

I color matched a couple of the Perfect Match Word Flags with the washi strips and popped them up with foam to add more visual interest and dimension. I also used a few of the White Romantic Words Phrase Stickers to fill in the blank areas between the Washi Strips.

This photo is of Aidan & our new dog, Keith. Keith LOVES to look out the window, and Aidan absolutely adores Keith. I was sitting on the couch across the room and saw the two of them snuggled up with each other and snapped the photo. The photo was grainy and of poor quality, but the memory was just too sweet. I used 2 small journaling tags included in the XOXO Die Cut Pack to add my typed journaling. I also cut a frame from the I’m Yours Patterned Paper and adhered it directly on top of my photo. I positioned 2 arrows (from the same die cut pack) on the photo to help draw your eye to the photo and the journaling. For final touches I added a few Heart Stickers, machine stitching through a few of the Washi Strips and Black Heidi Swapp Color Shine splatters.

I love the colors included in the XOXO Collection including the gorgeous green color of the Love Story Alpha Stickers that I used to spell out my title.

Now you can take a look at my process video!
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me and I hope you’ve found inspiration on how you can use multiple strips of washi on a single layout!
