Today I have a scrapbook layout for you.  Yeah – I’m all done with the mini cards and yes for those that wondered all 9 cards and envelopes did fit inside the box and there was room for a few more!

This layout was one of the ones we made at my WOW Scrapbook Class in August.  I have a class once a month – typically the last Friday of the month.  You can see my calendar on my website and RSVP directly from there.

Smile Your Heart out is the title with the Heart turned into a strawberry to match the paper.  The designer paper is the Berry Blossoms in the new Stampin’ Up! catalog.  It uses several of the new In-Colors – Wild Wisteria, Lucky Limeade and Calypso Coral.  The layout idea for this was from a scrapbook magazine.   The pictures are of my niece after we went to a Mother’s Day tea this past spring.  I spent all morning trying to get her to smile for me and finally when we were leaving she game me some big smiles.  And then she walked away toward the car and it was so cute I took pictures of her from behind.

The strawberry is made with the Big Shot Embosslit Heart of Hearts.  I turned it over so the dots are indented since a strawberry is like that.  The leaves on the top are made from the 5-petal flower punch.  The one underneath has one leaf trimmed to be a stem, and the one on top is trimmed to three leaves and layered on top.  Then I added a bitty flower punched from Whisper White.  I added a little dot from the Lucky Limeade Stampin’ Write marker in the center.

The strawberries turned out cute – I could have added some sponging and maybe scores in the center of the leaves for more dimension.

I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by today.
