Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: Creating a Woven Heart Valentine Scrapbook Page

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!! I'm on Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Blog today :) Excited to share an 8.5 x 11" scrapbook page with a combination of E-Z Runner® Ultra, Creative Photo Corners and 3D Foam Hearts to create this woven heart page!

**As a part of Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Design Team and Spellbinders® Paper Arts, I receive products for use in my projects. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience and doing so I can share what I personally love to use :) **

I start by cutting 0.75 x 6.0" of patterned papers. Line eight strips side by side and then weave one strip across (back and forth) to create one row. Repeat until you get to the top for a woven 6.0 x 6.0" piece. Set aside.

Take a piece of 8.5 x 11" white cardstock and hand drawn a heart shape. Then with a pair of scissors, fussy cut the shape out to create an open heart in the paper. If you used a pen or marker like me, cut outside the line.

With red ink and applicator, ink the edges of the heart to give it depth.

Using the E-Z Runner® Ultra, I followed the curves of the heart to place my woven paper piece on top to adhere. Trim off excess and adhere any loose ends.

I cut pictures from my leftover Happy New Year photo card (it had a collage design). I matted with patterned paper and secured two with Creative Photo Corners White and one with E-Z Runner® Ultra.

To layer the background, I swiped my ink pad across my mat and misted water. Loaded my paint brush and flicked in the areas where I will place my sequins. My cut out heart was used to protect the woven area. Set aside to dry.

For my title, I grabbed my 3D Foam Hearts and foiled a large heart (with the shiny side up). See How to Use 3D Foam Hearts and Other Shapes video below.

Next, for the letters, I placed a patterned paper on top of my 3D Foam Creative Sheet (remove top liner first) and die-cut my dimensional letters. See How to Use 3D Foam Creative Sheets video below.

For the background, I placed my sequins randomly using the new Adhesive Dots Micro. An 1/8 inch clear double-sided adhesive circles, they are PERFECT for my small embellies like these sequins. I also added a couple of small 3D Foam Hearts :)

Lastly, I adhered all my photos on the page with E-Z Runner® Ultra and inked the edges of my page with ink.

Had a blast creating this page - was able to do this in an afternoon.
