Brotherly Love | How to make a Geometric Heart Scrapbook page with your Silhouette | by Lyn


Hi  today I am making a 12×12 scrapbook layout using Helen’s lovely  geometric heart cut file and a set of doggy themed papers.
Photo play scrapbooking paper pack Cooper & friends by Becky Fleck
Sticky letters (unknown)
Colorbok White card stock 210gsm
Silhouette Cameo 3
Canon Selphy photo printer
Double sided sticky tape and 3D sticky pads

Cut out Geometric Heart using Silhouette Cameo 3
Firstly I cut the heart out of  white card stock using the following settings on my silhouette.
Blade 5
Speed 5
Force 15
Passes 2


Print photo and select papers
Next I picked the photo I wanted to use and printed that on my Selphy.
I had just purchased the photo play dog papers as we have a new puppy in the house and knew I’d be needing lots of doggy themed papers for all the photos we would be taking. They were perfect for what I had in mind.
I decided to use the blue patterned paper as my main page. Then I picked just 3 other papers to use to fill my heart.
Fill geometric heart with papers 
I always turn my cut file over and mark it as the back to use as a stencil. I draw on the inside of the shapes on the back of the papers and then cut round slightly bigger so I can the sellotape them at the back.  You may already have your own way of filling cut files but this the method I prefer. I picked just 3 different papers so I could stick to a pattern as I was filling the heart to get the effect I wanted. You could use more papers to fill your heart or fill it randomly.
Select embellishments 
Once I finished my heart I placed it on my background paper and started picking which stickers/ embellishments I wanted. I used only a few as I wanted the heart to be the focus point. I placed some of my stickers flat and some on 3d sticky pads to give some depth to the page.

Adding text to the scrapbook page
Next I  picked some small letters for my title. They needed to be small as I wanted them to fit round the top of my heart. I love perspextives and found the perfect one to match the mood of the photo.

Looking at my page I felt it was missing something and decided to back the left side of the page  with matching striped paper. This evened out the layout as the right side has most of the embellishments on.
And there you have it Brotherly Love.
