Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop - July 2020 - Shapes




Welcome to Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop
This month we are featuring Shapes for July Blog Hop.
I just used triangles to create a patchwork heart in the middle of my layout.
I had seen this done before somewhere on the internet, cannot remember where.
So I thought I would give it a whirl...

I used this template to create my heart from Cardstock and DSP .

My layout is a little bit different, BUT essentially the same.
Cut numerous 2 1/2" squares cut in half to create a triangle.
I used Cardstock and DSP to work out your layout then
I laid out my pattern and took a photo...
BUT of course I changed it a few times during the course of creating the heart.

Products used
12"x 12" Basic White Cardstock
Lovely In Linen Designer Series Paper
Petal Pink Cardstock
Pale Papaya Cardstock
Sweet Sorbet Cardstock
Basic White Cardstock
Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper
Lovely & Lasting Photopolymer Stamp Set
Places In The Heart Cling Stamp Set
Fabulous Frames Dies
Lasting Label Punch
Petal Pink Classic Stampin' Pad
Pale Papaya Classic Stampin' Pad
Elegant Faceted Gems
Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Mini Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine

I created the heart first then I measured the finished heart approx 10 1/2" square.
I created a cross section in the middle and outside to the edges in light pencil.
Started sticking my triangles onto the 10 1/2" Petal Pink Cardstock from the centre out.
I trimmed the finished heart to 10 3/8" square, next I added a
10 1/2"Sweet Sorbet Cardstock to bring in the boldness of the centre panel.
(Which is where I am going to add a scan photo of my granddaughter)



Next I decided to add the border stamp in Pale Papaya Ink all the way around 
12" x 12" Basic White Cardstock with Tiles stamp from Lovely & Lasting  Stamp Set.
Stuck my Sweet Sorbet Cardstock base to my Basic White Cardstock.
Then I added the corner dies from Fabulous Frames Dies out of Sweet Sorbet.

Ohhhh just a word of warning make sure you decide to stamp on your triangles
before you stick them!!! I didn't and had a lil fun making sure that I didn't get ink
on the other triangles...I used co-coordinating ink on the cardstock with stamps
from Lovely & Lasting.

Next I stamped the Mum cradling the baby from Places In The Heart Stamp Set
onto Petal Pink cardstock in Petal Pink Ink...
Then I cut a frame from Fabulous Frames out of Basic White Cardstock
and added over the stamped image.



I also stamped the words(There are places in your heart) from
Places In The Heart Stamp Set on Basic Cardstock and then punched it out with
Lasting Label Punch then punched another label out of Pale Papaya to layer behind.

Lastly I added the Elegant Faceted Gems to finish off the layout...
Hope you liked my Shapes layout...
I just need to add the photo of the 20 week scan photo (2 weeks to go)
