Hi there Simple Stories fans! Nicole here with a heart filled project using the new My Valentine collection!
To create this page, I used a variety of patterned papers in the collection to build a grid like heart on the page. Using the My Valentine 6x8 paper pad, I chose some more neutral designs and trimmed them to 2" squares and started to place those in the top right corner of the page.
I chose a few more bold patterns and cut those to 2" squares also, using those to build the heart design on the page, trimming some of the squares into triangles for the top edges of the heart design. Once the heart was on the page, I filled in the empty areas with the neutral patterned squares, leaving a white border on the left edge of the project.
I love the large border stickers in the My Valentine collection and used one to overlap the edge of the quilted design and the white border on the left side. I love the easy layered look of this sticker and decided to add a bit of my own machine stitching overtop the design. Next I fussy cut the large doily design from the Just a Crush patterned paper and used it to layer to the right side of my photo.
I love the vintage feel of this collection and it is so easy to get the layered look with less by using some of the papers and stickers in this collection!
