Meant To Be Scrapbook Page - Stampin' Up Artisan Corporate Blog Post

“Meant To Be” Versatile
Hello, everyone! My name is Lauren Alarid. I’m a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in California and 2019 Artisan Design Team member, and I am so happy to be sharing my creativity on the Stampin' Up! Company Blog. Today I wanted to share with you how I stretched the Meant To BeBundle beyond it’s more obvious use and show you how versatile it really is.

I love heart dies and stamps! They can be so great for making Valentine’s Day cards/gifts, love notes, or even wedding invitations, but what’s truly special about this bundle, and more specifically it’s dies, is that they can be used for so much more than Valentine’s Day. In today’s project, I have used them to highlight the way I look back on and remember a special moment together with my husband. They were the perfect touch for the look I was going for, a cascade of love.

I used both the stamp set and the dies to create dozens of hearts for my “waterfall” of hearts. I stamped some in Versamark Ink and embossed them in GoldEmbossing Powder onto Vellum and for the rest, I die cut them from Whisper White Cardstock. I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine to ground my falling hearts. I just adore the bunch of tiny hearts that die cut together! I used that cut to put behind my page title.

After placing all of my hearts, I wanted to add a little extra dimension and texture to my “waterfall” of hearts and those sweet little Heart Epoxy Droplets just seemed so perfect. However when I placed them on my page, they didn’t stand out against the all of the lovely gold as much as I had hoped, so I improvised. I made them all gold and if you would like gold heart epoxy droplets, it’s super easy! Here are the simple steps:

  1. Cut a strip off of the epoxy hearts that you would like to emboss (I chose to cut away a strip of hearts so that I wouldn’t get the rest of the hearts embossed in gold.
  2. Press the strip (epoxy heart side facing down) into your Versamark Ink Pad, making sure to get all hearts covered in ink.
  3. Use tweezers to hold the strip and pour your Gold Embossing Powder over the epoxy heart shapes.
  4. Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder and you will be left with gold epoxy heart droplets.

Here’s a closer look at those pretty, little hearts in action (picture below).

I hope that you have enjoyed this unique alternative for using the gorgeous heart dies! I’m sure you’ll find many more fabulous ways to use them, even after Valentine’s Day has passed. They are without a doubt a “must have” for any crafter, and now you can see how these products were “Meant To Be” versatile.

Happy Crafting!
