Just a few more hearts...for this year anyway

I scraplifted this page. When I saw it on-line, I knew it was the perfect venue to audition the new fringe scissors that I purchased. Now at least I can say I've used them once. Honestly, I think I'll be using these a lot. They are so much easier than cutting each fringe by itself as they cut 5 fringes at a time!
Since this is not my own design, I have provided a link at the bottom of the post so that you will have access to the same instructions I had. Have fun and enjoy!
My latest love is the Frosted Lace Stickles by Ranger. I just love the subtlety that it gives to objects on which it's been placed.
The font is Gazebo by QuicKutz.
I stamped the swirls before I placed the butterflies.
And then I went over the stamped swirls with more Frosted Lace. This is the multi-part butterfly die from QuicKutz.
I also stamped the mini hearts at top using a variety of inks (Distress, Chalk and VersaColor). Added a bit of Frosted Lace for more shimmer and shine.
I also dotted the large heart for the bigger butterfly with Frosted Lace Stickles.
Cut the opening of the large heart with an X-acto knife. Then placed lots of punched heart "tops" behind the opening. When I was pleased with the arrangement, and as a finishing touch, I sewed around the opening.
There is also a zigzag stitch at the bottom of the page over 3 layers of fringe and a strip of coordinating cardstock.
I hope you have fun creating your own page. For the original and the tutorial click here!

Sweet friend you need to do a book on scrapbooking with fabric, laces, etc machine embroidery. You are so talented. How many people do you have on your blog? Are you teaching sewing any more ever? I miss you. The industry misses you. I love you dearly. God Bless, Martha
