This layout started with some hand-stitched hearts. I chose a few colors that I knew were found in the collection and poked my holes by tracing some heart die cuts as well as some of my cut files (this one and this one). You could definitely freehand something as simple as hearts, though.
There ended up being six hearts in six colors to go along with my six small (I printed at 2x3) photos. Then I simply embellished by color.
This is such a great way to use all of those pretty stickers and die cuts without worrying too much about how well the particular shape or icon goes with the theme of your layout. If you want more fun ideas + tips on great ways to use your die cuts, you should definitely check out me and Irit Landgraf's class, Die Cut Diversity!
I added captions below each photo and I like this way of telling the story of a whole day (and night) on one layout. If you want to see how it all came together, watch the process video here or over on my YouTube channel.
