Damask Divas Hello Lovely Blog Hop

Welcome to the Damask Divas' February Blog Hop featuring the Close to My Heart Hello Lovely paper packet!  The Damask Divas' team is excited to inspire you with fabulous projects from this beautiful collection!  You can see the full hop line-up over on the Damask Divas' blog.

When I first say the Hello Lovely collection back in December, I fell in love -- which is so strange for me because as a #boymom, I normally tend to shy away from romantic floral collections.  But something about this gorgeous collection just called out to me and I couldn't wait to play with it!

Today's project is part of a new series I am planning to do in 2017 -- called Good, Better, Best.  In the series, I will show how to create simple, basic or "Good" projects... and then how to jazz them up through stamping, Cricut-ing, and embellishing to make them "Better" and "Best" projects.

To take the layout below from "Good" to "Better", I inked the edges of all the cut paper pieces with Chocolate ink.  This helps them to "pop" off the page.  I double-cut and layered the "happy" title to give it some pop as well.  I also used foam tape to pop-up the small banner/phrase on the upper-right square and curled up the edges of the lace doilies to add some dimension to the page.  The dimension may be hard to see in the picture, but is fabulous in person.

  I would love if you would subscribe to my blog and "like" my Facebook page to see how this layout is transformed from Better to Best.
