Hello, hello. How are doing, everyone? I hope you are ready for another dose of “These days” inspiration! This week we are focusing on puffy stickers and puffy hearts to show you how you can incorporate them in your projects. I must tell you I struggles a while for what I should do. I didn’t have any photo on my mind, or specific design so I came back ot basics by using tried and true grid design. To make things a little bit different than usual, I used heart dies and created my grid using them.

I went even further and used the die to cut the photos too. You can’t do this with every photo as you loose a lot of background. I managed to find few pictures with my daughter standing a little far, so I only lost part of her hands but you can still see what was the main focus of the photo. All my hearts are cut out from “Good life” paper, with lovely and cute pattern. They look great on warm wooden texture from “Pretty posies” paper.

After I glued down all the hearts and photos, it was time to decorate everything. I reached for ephemera and flower packs. This such a fun and quick to use product. I love fussy cutting but it takes a precious time and with pre cut elements you can create much faster. I glued down flowers and other elements using 3D foam, adding dimension to my page. Each heart got it’s own mini composition.

When it comes to puffy stickers and hearts – I added one golden heart on each element on the grid. They add a little bit of blink and sparkle to my layout. I love using puffy stickers as they are great tiny accent and perfect for finishing touches. I especially love those mini hearts – I could have a whole sheet of them only in all colors of the rainbow.

Last step in making this page was to add a title. I wasn’t vey inventive here and I used Foam titles, that are part of “These days” collection. I needed someting short so I chose THIS LIFE phrase. It’s very generic and in this case it tell about idyllic childhood of my kids. They get a chance to spend time in the countryside, run bare foot, play in the big pile of sand, spend time with the farm animals, bath in puddles and be as dirty as they want.

That is all for today. Thank you so much for stopping by and see you in September. It will be time for some fall page, right?
