Do What You Love

Initially I was inspired by Cheryl's layout that she scrapped using an instax that I took for her. See the layout here. Then I was bored scrapping pictures and pictures of my baby bumps, so I suggested that I would scrap a layout of her pics. I pictured the layout in my mind before she sent me any photos of hers. Then I started looking for the same quote from Pinterest and cut it using Silhouette.

So this is the layout from me to Cheryl. I hope she would love it as I know she isn't a big fan of pink / pastel color. But who doesn't love Amy Tangerine ReadySetGo collection? The layout turn out to be a little more colorful that what I have pictured, but the small photo and big title is what I was looking for.


I remember watching a video tutorial from TwoPeas by Nancy Damiano on how to fill the fonts with buttons. What a great way to use loads of buttons in just one layout! I layered a heart-shaped wood veneer on the buttons to emphasize the word 'LOVE'

I love altering the color of the wood veneer with embossing powder, Mister Huey and also Versa Colors. Easy and fun!

Love this pictures of Cheryl. I think her mum is a better photographer teehee :>

As usual, she rocks! Cheryl is my bestie in scrapbooking world and she always inspire me in her own way. 

Oh by the way, I just have to show you how I layered the buttons under the cut fonts.
I applied a layer of tape glue on the scrap paper that I have measured according to the font, then arrange the buttons and stick each button with liquid glue, painstakingly. Add foam dots to the sit and layer it under the cut fonts. 

Are you bored scrapping your own pictures and wanna exchange a layout with me? Do leave me a message and let's see how it goes. XoXo.
