I am so excited to be debuting my first Design Team Project for SVG Cuts. For those of you that know me well you know I am passionate about scrapbooking. I do one scrapbook per year and do my best to keep up. My boys love looking through the albums and I like capturing the memories. Scrapping is my creative release. I crop at home and also like to join friends at Friday or weekend crops at my local scrap book store.

This first layout is for Valentine's Day. It is 12x12. All solid papers are AC Card Stock. Patterned paper in background from my stash.

SVG Collections Used:

1. Be Mine Valentines SVG Kit
2. Candy Cherub Bears SVG Collection
3. Candy Heart Goodie Bags SVG Kit

Dimensions

Here are the exact shapes, sizes and colors I used. Size to dimensions shown below with "Keep Proportions" checked in the Shape Properties window unless otherwise noted with height dimensions.

Instructions

  1. I Started with 12x12 White AC Card Stock.
  2. Take a piece of 12x12 paper and tear edges to 11x11 and adhere to the white stock. Stitch around the edge if you like.
  3. Cut, Ink and stitch background cuts and photo mats.
  4. Add the bear & hearts. Don't forget to add dimensional tape.
  5. Add ribbons and embellishments. I used gems, brads & ribbons.
  6. Add your photos. Crop them just inside the stitching.

Design Tips

Amy - SVGCuts Design Team Artist

  • Don't be afraid to tear paper - it is fun and adds interest. Use a ruler for a straight tear.
  • If you do stitch do not stitch over adhesive. Try it - it is a lot fun. The great thing about stitching on scrapbook pages is you don't have to be exact (like when making a dress).
  • I did not ink the bear - I liked the clean look of him without inking.

Thanks for checking out my first DT Project. I plan to focus on scrapping and my collages for my first few projects and look forward to my next project.

    I love it so much, Amy! Thanks for sharing!! Interesting background details too, like not inking the bear. Makes sense! Thanks for the tips!

    Wonderful….one resolution is to start a scrapbook for my son and/or my SIL. It will be your inspiration that I know will keep me going. Thanks for a great start!

    Great layout Amy! Congrats on your first post. Hope to see many more. I’m not a scrapbooker so this is beautiful. Somehow a 12×12 area is daunting when I am a card maker.
