Heartstring Designs February Kit: Sweet Essence (Day 2)

We are here to reveal the second 2013 Housecalls kit by Heartstring Designs called “Sweet Essence”.



This kit had a little bit of something for everyone.  Yesterday I shared more of the sassy, saturated side of this kit.  But, there is a softer, more romantic side to Sweet Essence that you just have to love. Here is a list of the super SWEET brands included in the kit this month:

Simple Stories

American Crafts

Glitz Design


Pinque Peacock

3 Girl Jam

Toxic Sass


And now, some soft and romantic inspiration, from SWEET ESSENCE


I really am coming to love simple designs.  This card was awesomely easy because the part around their faces that seems “framed” is actually a sticker that fits PERFECTLY over the lager image.  Love that easy layering!!!


Toxic Sass is the creator of this beautiful flower embellishment.  It comes to you on a fabric border strip, but I ended up detaching it and using it on this card instead.  The feathers are so fun, right?


Valentines products aren’t just for layouts featuring love and romance.  I used this stunning background paper and a few embellishments to make a page about my friends and I attending a wedding.  I used my Slice to cut a simple title and everything else comes straight from the kit as-is.


The embellishment pack included some super cute insta-frames that really compliment these pictures of my parent’s wedding.  I was able to take older-style photos and give them a more trendy style using these retro frames.  Again, I cut the “always” with my Slice and used some Tattered Angels Glimmer mist to add interest to the background – everything else is included in the kit. : )


I had such a blast using all the little (and big!) chipboard pieces that were included in this kit, but my FAVORITE were these two clouds.  I added some notched banners to the bottom and I think they just really make this page pop!  This page came together SUPER fast and it ended up being my favorite. : )
