All Curled Up
I sometimes wonder if I would enjoy having a Silhouette Cameo, because I've seen projects from crafty folks that are seriously awesome. For now I'm going to continue holding back from buying one, so when I saw a recent layout by Paige Evans that I could create with just scissors and a paper trimmer, I had to scraplift her.
I gathered a half dozen patterned papers and started slicing them into strips. I got carried away and cut way more than I needed. I then started cutting them to length to create my heart shape. Let me tell you, it was a nice change to have made my layout without measuring a single thing!
Once my strips were in place, I used my least sticky washi tape to outline the heart shape and then ran it through my sewing machine to stitch the strips in place onto the background paper. I die cut a tab and stitched a cork heart to it and then found the purr-fect place for the wood veneer kitty. I used foam dots to pop up my paper layers and photo. Some mist droplets and sequins and I was all done.
