“King of Hearts” by Andrea Friebus
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Amercian Crafts, Core’dinations; journaling tags: Jillibean Soup, Little Yellow Bicycle; ink: Clearsnap; embroidery floss: DMC; stickers: My Little Shoebox; die cut machine: Slice, Making Memories; buttons: Recollections, TPC Studio; brad and die cut: Creative Imaginations; ribbon: Queen and Co., Home Shopping Network, Offray, unknown.

Variation #1 - By adding the ribbon snippets to my heart, I had to reduce the heart size and
also the photo sizes. (4x5, 2.5x2.5, 2.5x2.5)


Variation #2 - I changed the heart embellishments to buttons and brads.

Variation #3 - I eliminated the patterned paper strip and stitching shown at the bottom of the sketch and instead matted the photos on solid cardstock and stitched around the heart.

"My Lil' Quiller" by Virginia Nebel
Supply list - Cardstock: Bazzil; Patterned paper: SEI and My Mind's Eye; Embellishments: The Twinery; Diecuts: Sizzix, Lifestyles Crafts, and Accucut

Variation #1 - I made the photo block smaller to three horizontal 2.5 x 3.5 inch photos and created a heart shaped journal element.

"I <3 UR Silly Face" by Ashley Horton
Supply List - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye; Punches: Anna Griffin and Marvy; Embroidery Floss: Janlynn; Font: CK Girly; Thickers: American Crafts; Corrugated Alpha: Jillibean Soup; Embossing: Sizzix and The Paper Studio; Adhesive: 3L, Zig, and Recollections

Variation #1 - I used two 3.5x5 photos in place of the 4x6 and two 3x3's.

Variation #2 - I changed the size of the journaling block to 3x5.

Variation #3 - I tilted the heart slightly and added circles ranging in size from 1/4 of an inch to 1 1/2 inches inside the outline. Then I cut a large heart outline and added it over the circles and added some white stitching.


Variation #4 - I moved the title from the top of the page to my journaling block, so it wouldn't cover so much of the heart shape.


Variation #5 - I added a thin border strip to the top and bottom of the page and also the word "love" at the bottom of the page.

This is such an awesome sketch and I LOVE the way both of you used it!! The ribbon around your heart Andrea is such a fun touch, and Virginia I love the little heart border across your page with the twine bows!!

Andrea-Love the use of the ribbons! Very creative, reminds me of my baby's taggie crinkle blanket, esp with the stiching on the heart. I like that you didn't use all the small hearts, buttons are a great choice.

Virginia-like how you've changed the shapes of the hearts. And sewing them together is a nice touch. Even with so many pattners together it works very well. It's hard to pull it off with 5+ patterns all on top of one another.

Great job ladies!
