This is a layout that I made for the Leaky Shed and Authentique Swap. We were given some beautiful papers and stickers to play with from Authenique and mixing them with Leaky Shed Studio supplies made for a lot of great projects! You can check out the projects and get the details of the swap at the Leaky Shed Blog.
This collection is called Smitten and is traditionally meant to be a Valentine's Collection, but I took the 'Love' theme in a different direction for my layout. Leaky Shed Studio makes these precious wooden hearts and along with this photo of Laynee's Dedication, I thought that they all fit perfectly together to make this layout with a different theme.
I drew a heart for a pattern and used it to cut out several hearts in different prints. I used some of them on top of the paper and simply stitched around them. I then used two of them and placed them behind the paper, after I had cut out a bit smaller heart. I stitched around them, too. I like the added dimension and interest that this allowed.
Finally, I added those precious hearts from Leaky Shed Studio with little black bows!
