Today I thought I'd share another of my projects that was selected to be part of the new Make It From Your Heart publication. It's a layout of the our beautiful twin grand babies. The twins are actually here visiting us right now and it's hard to believe that over 7 months have passed since these newborn photos were taken. Street and Livvi are now chubby, full of personality, mobile (oh dear!) and so busy! Look at them at 6 months old:

The photo of the Twins layout I used for this post is pretty sad. Sorry! Before I turned all of the projects in to Close To My Heart I meant to photograph them well for my records and it just didn't happen with this one. I am not sure how I let that slip. Hopefully you can see well enough. You can also see this layout on page 17, using pattern #6, in Make It From Your Heart volume 1. This awesome publication is only $7.95 and is filled to the brim with sixteen two-page layout patterns, two one-page layout patterns, and twelve card patterns...not to mention beautiful artwork. It's a must have for sure!
I used a couple of different paper packs for this layout. I used papers from the Avonlea Kit and from the Pear and Partridge Kit. You may have noticed that I even used the "genealogy paper" from the Avonlea Kit as the bases for my pages. I love the subtle background on this paper. I also used several different colors of cardstock: Whisper (new color), Sorbet, Cocoa and Colonial White. I used buttons from our Blue Button Collection and threaded them with Chocolate Waxy Flax. I spelled the word 'twins' by using our Dimensional Elements Monograms. I sponged them with Cocoa Ink and then used my Colonial White Stamp Pad to stamp the music notes from the Universal Backgrounds Stamp Set on them. I also sponged the edges of all of the papers on the layout with Cocoa Ink.
I recommend the new, very affordable Make it From Your Heart publication. It is filled with fresh new patterns for layouts and cards!
