Hey You | Traditional Layout

I still have the Savannah Main Scrapbook Kit sitting on my desk this week and I've completed three layouts with it so far. This is the second layout I finished, which was inspired by the nested heart dies from Studio Calico. I have several sets of heart dies, but these caught my eye because of the wider shape than most heart dies. How cute did the hearts turn out?!? I was practically giddy when I finished die cutting them. I love it when my vision turns out even better than anticipated.

I started by trimming four photos to 2.75in x 2.75in. I matted them on white cardstock then adhered them to the background cardstock/patterned paper. I added the title "hey you" with red puffy letters from the Savannah kit, then adhered the die cut hearts with foam dots in three places. 

I added a few more embellishments (vellum hearts, sequins, staples, enamel dots), then added a strip of red cardstock behind the photos. The photos were already adhered to the gray cardstock, so I had to cut the red cardstock down and tuck it behind the photos, careful not to adhere the cardstock to the front of the photos. It took a little extra time but the pop of red is exactly what this layout needed.

I used a "neato" badge from a previous Studio Calico kit and added a few more sequins to the top left of the layout. Can I tell you how smitten I am with how this turned out? The fact that Jack's shirt is plaid, and matches the color scheme of the kit, is icing on the cake. The gray, blue, and red color combination is so pretty. 

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I will be back tomorrow with a card for next week's Retro Sketches challenge.
