Happy Heart . . . a step by step tutorial by Sharon!

by Sharon Fritchman

Hi everyone!  I am very excited to share with you my latest scrapbook page that I made with Scrap FX products that I love!

My page is entitled “Happy Heart” and while envisioning my page, I knew I wanted to scrap this photo of my daughter, Anne:

Here is my completed page:

Here is my step by step tutorial which will include the Scrap FX products that I used along the way!

First, I distressed the edges of my paper:

Next, I stamped the edges of my paper with the following foam stamps:


Rose Garden:


I used versa-mark stamp pad and heat embossed the images with black embossing powder.

I covered the smaller matts with cheesecloth:

And added the wire flower silhouette:

I stamped my background paper with the number crunch foam stamp, then spritzed it with water and black ink spray:

Number Crunch foam stamp:

While the paper was drying, I heat embossed my chipboard pieces with silver embossing powder, and went over some areas on each piece with darker celestial embossing powder:

Balloon Frame:

Celebrating in Style Wordlet:

I also stamped a piece of vellum paper that I had on hand with the rose garden stamp (as seen above) and celestial embossing powder.  I cut out these flowers to use later:

Finally, I put everything together. I moved things around the tucked things in here and there until I was happy with the arrangement.  Then I glued everything down.  Even after I have everything in place, I add extra touches, like cheesecloth, misting, ink splatter, glitter, and ribbon.  I added the cut out vellum, heat embossed flowers and added ribbon to the balloons.

Here is a close-up:

I used the phrases “Let success by measured by the happiness in your HEART” and “Happy Heart” from the Love Transparency:

I also added the beautiful black and white butterflies:

Here are some more close-ups and different views:
