Hey y’all its Courtney here today and I am sharing the layout that I created using the Heart Collection. I love how versatile this collection can be. Today I am using it to document an older picture of my two oldest kiddos. The colors were perfect for both of them and can we talk about all of the hearts and floral pieces that are in this collection.

I backed a free cut file that I grabbed from the Paper Issues website and I backed it with 5 different patterns from the 6x8 paper pad. I love using multiple papers and I love that cut files make it really easy for me to do. After I backed everything I auditioned different pattern papers to see which ones I loved as a background. I chose to go with the paper So loved, and cut it down a ½ of an inch on the top and one side. Then I backed it with the floral paper that is the b side of the 2x2 elements.

There are a few elements that I always love to include in my layouts enamel dots and tiny word stickers/ word from the combo sticker sheets. I tend to not do a lot of journaling so I use the word stickers in its place.

I knew that I wanted to add the word remember from the Combo Cardstock sticker sheet on top of my title. I created a ton of different clusters around the page out of the flora’s and the hearts. I did add foam to the cut file and a few of the elements to create some dimension. Most of the clusters are a combination of the chipboard, bits and pieces and the 4x6 sticker. I love the look that thy give when they are layered next to each other.

I hope my layout inspired you to get creative and use collection for something other than their intended purpose!
