Good morning scrappers! Wendy here today to share with you a layout I made for the March Scrap Soup challenge. If you are not familiar with it, it is a super fun recipe challenge with a list of items to include on your project. You can add as many other things as you want, but you must include the listed items. This month's list consists of: 3 embellishments, 6 hearts, 2 patterned papers, chipboard title and stamping. 

If you haven't heard yet, I was absolutely in LOVE with the January Swag Bag; so much so that I bought more than one. So when I read over the ingredient list, I knew it would be perfect to use again. For my layout, I used more than 6 hearts in 6 different pattern papers. I also stitched some hearts too to add dimension and texture. Stitching is one of my favorite things to do on all my layouts. I worked with ephemera, a paperclip, puffy alphas and shapes, sequins, and stickers, as my embellishments. I grabbed an old chipboard title and covered it in glitter and viola! I had the start of my title!

How adorable is that guitar with the glittered strings?! It was the inspiration behind my title.

Not only did I stamp the date on a label, but I used a separate roller sentiment stamp for the "you make me happy."


I just love all the little bits and pieces that come in the swag bag!

  1. Holy sparkling hearts Wendy! That's super cute! Love what you did with that old chipboard! Viola, you're so clever :D The stitching is fab and the bright open right side is a nice balance to all you hard work. Cheers, @kellymadeit
