Some new Sizzix Creations - A layout and some planner fun!


Happy interNational Scrapbook weekend everyone! 

In honour of this special weekend I thought I would get creating with two of my fave companies. The beautiful Crate Paper and Sizzix

For the first project I am sharing with is a layout, I teamed the beautiful 'Chasing Dreams' collection with the sweet Sizzix Scallop Hearts Framelits (657562) and Tiny Bow (661797) dies. The subject and topic of this layout is a love and wedding inspired page. The products together were the perfect combination to create another layout for my wedding album.

Here is the layout I created:



The title of the page came from the chipboard Thickers mixed with a phrase sticker. I love the versatility of the tiny word phrases and sentiments. I also added some short but sweet journaling using my typewriter. I didn't add anything detailed as my wedding album really does not need very detailed journaling. This album is really showcasing the photos, but at times I like to add more of my heartfelt thoughts. 

To create the main feature of the page the hearts - I cut multiple hearts on the Chasing Dreams patterned papers and vellum using the Scallop Hearts framelits dies. I love that I was able to create my own embellishments by layering the various sizes and stitching through the centres for added detail. The Chasing Dreams stickers and chipboard shaped in hearts were a perfect finishing touch too. I love the dimension they were able to bring to the page. 


I also tucked in some florals and fussy cut butterflies into the clusters. There is nothing like hearts, butterflies and flowers right?!? The vellum heart layers add a nice soft touch to the page. 


To embellish the heart on the top right of the page I used the new Tiny Bow die 661797. I love how small and sweet this turned out. It was the perfect size for the centre. 


I matted my photo with the three papers that I used on the hearts also. The title was able to be placed on top of the photo as it had a lot of negative space on the bottom two thirds. 


You can really see in the image below the layering and dimension that was able to be achieved though creating my own heart embellishments. I love the end result. 


The final thing I wanted to share with you today was how I jazzed up my notebook with felt, hot glue and the Tiny Bow (661797) and Tassel-tastic (661716) dies. So cute and so simple to create my very own planner style clips and tassels. 



I hope you have enjoyed this post this evening. I have sure had fun creating these to share with you!
