Haven’t our guest designers been awesome this month? We’re happy to welcome back Heather Leopard for her second post, sharing a project that’s sure to have you reaching for your scissors or die-cutting machine!
Hello everyone! It’s Heather Leopard again, and I am so happy to share my final project as guest designer this month. My first project was a mini album but today I’m getting back to my true love, traditional scrapbooking.
Supplies: May exclusive kit, Little Moments 6” x 6” paper stack, Little Moments bits and pieces, Little Moments cutouts, Little Moments journaling tags, Days of the Week acrylics, Good Stuff puffy stickers, letter and number stickers- black
This page was inspired by the background paper. The little hearts reminded me of dandelion seeds, so I decided to scrap these photos of my daughter making a wish with her dandelion. I’m a big fan of fun backgrounds so I decided to scatter flowers throughout the page.
I cut flower petals from various patterned papers found in the 6” x 6” paper stack and arranged them around the page. I adhered them together in the center using a bit of liquid adhesive. Once dry, I stitched circles in the middle. Some are covered with larger tags and embellishments, while others are small enough to reveal the stitching.
I layered bits of journaling tags, vellum, puffy stickers, bits & pieces and more under and around my photos. I even cut the center out of the “love this” insta-frame journaling tag and popped one of my photos through it. My title is a combo of the “true story” acrylic and alphabet stickers. And last, but not least is a little note to my daughter.
To re-create this, all you need is a few coordinating patterns, scissors or a die cut machine to cut leaves and it will come together in no time!
Hi! I’m Heather Leopard and I am thrilled to be guest designing for Elle’s Studio! I was born and raised in the Lone Star State and live in Cypress, Texas with my family – hubby, 2 daughters, 1 bonus son, and 2 rescue dogs. I lead marketing initiatives for a major computer company but my real passion is playing with paper, glue and scissors. I started scrapbooking in middle school WAY back and scrapped here and there through college. I got REALLY into it when I got married in 2002 and then I became OBSESSED with it when I had my babies, who aren’t really babies anymore. I love to scrap the little details and daily adventures of my family and I aim to capture the essence of whatever it is they are doing. My signature style includes lots of pattern mixing, matching, and layering in fun and unique ways. I also design for Shimelle.com and Gossamer Blue.
