I (HEART) SCRAPBOOKING!

Heartspiration!

With Valentine’s Day fast approaching I thought I’d take a moment and go over one of my favorite scrapbook and craft embellishments… the HEART!

Embellishing your projects with hearts is a great way to convey feelings such as affection, love, passion, and health.  They are also super versatile; you can add an arrow through the center to represent emotions like love struck or romance or break them in two to represent sadness or separation.  Shapes of the hearts can also be used to communicate things; for instance, two pink hearts with one smaller than the other can mean “love is in the air” and likewise a heart inside of another heart can be used to signify big love or a growing love for something.  Likewise, different colors can be used with the same heart shape to convey different meanings.  A yellow heart can be used to represent friendship or compassion.  A blue heart can can be a great way to denote loyalty and peace and a purple heart can be used to symbolize honor and sacrifice.   I just really love anything that can have so many different meanings and be so adaptable and for me nothing is better than the HEART!  So bust out those heart stamps, die cuts, and Cri-cut cartridges and express your (RED HEART) of scrapbooking.

I got the inspiration for this art journal page from a book I’ve been reading called “Love What Is” by Byron Katie. It’s about accepting reality and being at peace with the present moment. It’s been giving me some great art journaling ideas.

Last weekend I started scrapbooking a birthday gift album for a friend, her twins turned four years old. When I scrapbook gift albums I like to keep the pages simple and classic. I used some Cricut cartridges to make the embellishments for this scrapbook page.

 

Come scrapbook with us at our day crop at Scrap Diva Retreats on February 4th if you are available. I would love to see you! You can RSVP here on our meetup.
