Design Team: Sweet Heart

I love the colour combinations of this gorgeous layout from Julia. She has used papers from the 'Life of the Party' pack from Basic Grey (6" x 6" size). The layout itself is 12" x 12" but with clever positioning of the photograph and embellishments you wouldn't know that. Julia used three different designs from the pack for this layout. The orange and brown flowers are from Dovecraft (Blossoms - Rich Earthtones) and Julia used pearls for the centres. The rolled roses are hand-made by Julia (what a clever lady!). The stitching effects on this layout were made by using a Tando Creative Stitches Group Mask and alcohol ink and it creates a lovely effect.

I love these gorgeous hand-made buttons, covered in papers from the pack. Julia has a video tutorial on her blog on how to make these. Why not pop over to Julia's blog and watch how she makes these fantastic little gems.

If you leave a comment for Julia and you are a member of this blog I will enter your name into the Blog Candy draw. Come back soon for some more wonderful inspiration from our Design Team.
