“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.

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!
