Heart Happy Love Layout & More

Welcome!  On this blustery and frosty winter day, I decided to create and share a layout that warms my heart.  My single page layout, featuring my grandchildren 💖, is made with the exclusive, limited edition Heart Happy Creative Collection.  When I create a single page layout, I'll often frame and display it in our home before moving it into our scrapbooks. 😘

The color palette is super fun!  It includes many of my favorites -- Ballerina, Candy Apple, Pixie, Raspberry, Mint, Sapphire and White Daisy. 😊  Did you notice how my grandchildren's attire is right in line with these colors?!?  Woo Hoo!  My beautiful granddaughter is wearing bright raspberry, and my handsome grandsons are sporting sapphire attire with a touch of white daisy, and one with the candy apple red.  (I'm sure my daughter had no idea I'd have a creative collection made just for them when she sent the pics of the kiddos!  LOL!  Even the gorgeous poinsettia and Caribbean Sea are sporting complementary colors!) 

One of the awesome features of this collection is the "cut-apart" sheet option.  This is new this year, and I'm loving it!  You receive two of these sheets in each paper collection, with the reverse side being a complementary pattern. 💝

As you can see in my layout, I am using three of these cut-outs.  For the triple hearts and LOVE title cut-aparts, I've matted with Mint, Sapphire and White Daisy cardstock, as I did with the stars of my layout.  The "stitched" scallop border with Pixie trim, pulls all of the other pinks together throughout the page.  Everything is built on the subtle XOXOXO patterned Mint paper.  

My journaling card and mini heart accents are from the coordinating Stickers.  Easy peasy!  This page was such a joy to create and came together quickly with this collection.  

Here's a quick card I created with one of the Heart Happy cut-apart designs, zip strips, coordinating sapphire cardstock and a piece of leftover Something Fierce paper, shown in last week's  Blessed layout.
A trio of White Dots quickly finishes off my card.😊
