After the washi strips were cut on a patterned paper from the Shimelle Little By Little Collection, I lightly adhered them to the white cardstock background. I then took the largest heart from the Follow Your Heart Cut File, held it in place with my hand, and used my piercing tool to poke holes for the hand stitching. I repeated this same step with the smaller heart from the same cut file.
I matched the embroidery floss as closely as I could to the colors in the patterned paper washi strips. I positioned the photo on the bottom right and added a few more ephemera pieces from the Shimelle Little By Little Collection as layering pieces. I then added my title using a combination of words from Heidi Swapp and the Pink Paislee C'est La Vie Collection.
Here's a look at how the layout came together!!
Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me and don't forget to head over to The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files and digital collections.
