I had to putz around quite a bit to get all the hearts lined up just the way I wanted them.
All the putzing was worth it, though, because I'm so happy with the dimensional look of the card.
I decided to use punched hearts on a layout, too. It's so fun to mix different colors and patterns.
I tried to give this page a shabby, worn, "well loved" feeling, like the title says.
The idea to string the hearts like sequins was inspired by a card I saw on Kirsty Vittetoe's blog, and she in turn was inspired by a post on the Papertrey Ink blog.
Like the card at the top of this post, my layout has a lot of dimension.
However, all the elements "squish down" really easily, in order to fit neatly inside an album page protector.
It was fun to mix and match cute little paper scraps from my stash to create these two projects. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
