The heart pocket is made with a new Sizzix die by Brenda Walton called Heart Pocket. I die cut the back of the heart from a piece of gelli printed paper, I like having a whole bunch of printed papers that I can reach for. The pocket was die cut from natural sticky back canvas, which was first adhered to cardstock.
The canvas was embossed in the pretty Songbirds folder and inked with brown Distress Inks, so that the embossing stands out better.
The small hearts were die cut from leftover gelli papers and patterned papers. They open up.
For the background, I embossed brown Core'dinations cardstock (4 x 4 in) in different shades and sanded. They were stitched to the background cardstock
I die cut the title from mat board with the Block Talk Lowercase die. The accordion flower is also a part of the Notepad Cover die. The background paper watercolour paper coated with gesso, painted with Distress Paints and stamped.
The Notepad Cover inside the heart looks like this and was die cut from Prima patterned paper. I positioned the paper in such a way that the pencil would be at the bottom. It looks a little skewed on the photo, but not in real life.The butterfly is also part of the Notepad Cover die.
Inside the pocket, there is a little mini book meant for journaling and photos of the new little wonder.
There has been a couple of previous posts about these changes earlier on the blog, but I wasn't quite ready to tell yet, particularly these two: Changes layout and Vintage Rust art journal page.
Thank you so much for looking!!
Have a lovely day!
