Take 2 with Rebecca

Hey everyone! I’m here with this month’s Take 2 where we scrap lift either another Scrapbook Circle designer or one of our own layouts. I have been wanting to do a version of Scrapbook Circle owner, Lisa Andrews’ layout from the January 2015 kit forever! I love the 4 quadrant design and the hearts, and I heard that she uses her 6×6 pads for this type of layout because then the hearts and the squares all perfectly coordinate. I think that is genius!

Here is my take on Lisa’s fun layout.

Lisa told me that she cut her hearts by hand and used the cut out pieces of 6×6 paper as windows with her photos put behind. I decided to be lazy and use my manual die cut machine and a nested heart die. I cut the 6×6 patterned papers into 4×4 squares. Then I die cut the largest size hearts from different patterned papers. Finally I die cut my photos into the next largest size.

I machine stitched around the squares and the hearts have faux embossed stitching.

I layered some stickers and embellishments and used number stickers to number my squares, the first was my title and the next three clockwise around the page were my three favorite C’s, camera, coffee and crafts (sometimes the order changes!).
