All Heart part 2 | Rachel Millington
Hey Magpies! Welcome to the second part of my Crate Paper, All Heart layouts. As I said in my first post this month, I LOVED this collection so much. I didn’t at first, I was slow to join the party but when I did, I really joined the party!
I did 8 LO’s with All Heart and 7 of them had a white background. It just seemed to work so well on white but I did manage one LO on patterned paper! I used the reverse side of the Selfie Paper and then added one of the 4×6″ cards from the reverse side of the Shine On Paper beside my photo. I loved the ‘keep it simple’ text on that card so wanted to keep that on there.
On all the papers, there’s a really cool strip on the manufacturers banding strip at the bottom. It shows the paper on each side of the sheet so you get two strips out of each sheet. I had cut them all up as I’d used papers and had a stash of them on my desk. So I used them all up here! So all those strips under my photo are from the branding strips and a couple of other scraps I had. Then I used some of the bits from the Collage Paper which I matted on black to give them a pop. I did use quite a few bits from the 1×12 Chipboard Sticker sheet which is unfortunately out of stock now I’m sorry. I did make these LO’s quite a bit in advance and some things have sold out in the meantime so I do apologise for that. Just some of the Puffy Stickers popped around finished things off for me.
Next up I really wanted to use some of the stamps I had bought from the shop. They’re by Ink Road and I had to buy the Bazinga set because Big Bang Theory was one of my favourite programmes! So I bought that set and used it on this LO. I used the soft kitty stamp to make a tag and then used the ‘oh what fresh hell is this’ stamp under my photo cause it fit perfectly and also, seemed to sum up the look on my cat’s face!
I used the Collage Paper again on this one, the phone and the love tag are from that sheet. Then I cut my own tag from kraft cardstock and made the soft kitty tag. I didn’t know what else to add so I used some scrap paper to fill up my grid space and then added a line of random embellishments from the Puffy Stickers and Puffy Thickers and then a line of Nuvo Crystal Drops to complete.
My last LO and I cut apart the Selfie Paper for this one. I also used a whole bunch of the 12×12 Chipboard Stickers which are sold out now, I am sorry about that. I just layered up some of the frames and bits and bobs on to the polaroid pieces from the Selfie Paper. Making a grid is a super simple way to make a LO and if you’re worried about not getting things lined up perfectly, do what I did here and don’t even try and make it perfect. Go for the wonky look! I also did some lines of Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish off.
I hope you like the LO’s I made with the Crate Paper All Heart collection, I am quite chuffed with them all and they do look fabulous together! I wish I had realised how much I loved All Heart when it was released and snapped up the whole collection then but I was late to this one lol! I will definitely be watching Crate’s new releases for something similar to this collection and buying the heck out of it straight away from now on! Embrace the random and just throw it on a page is my advice, Don’t worry whether it fits or not, if you like the sticker or Thicker or puffy, just whack it on there. If it makes you happy, that’s all that matters! Embrace the random Magpies!!!
