If you were here yesterday, you know that I made a card with the Be Mine Framelits Dies from Stampin' Up! and that I was so impressed with the dies that I wanted to try a Scrapbook Layout. You may also notice that today's You Make Me Smile Scrapbook Layout looks a lot like yesterday's card only expanded with a picture of my granddaughter, Sadie.
Scrapbook Design Tips

Are you one of those people that struggle with choosing which side of the designer paper to use? Here's a thought. I used both sides of my All My Love Designer Paper making my title bar. I cut Sadie's name with my Large Letter Framelits Dies, then used the reverse side of my paper to make my band.
Sadie's surprised look picture looks adorable all by itself, but to add just a little interest, I ran the picture through my Big Shot with my Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies.

The second tip involves ninja tricks for securing vellum without leaving telltale adhesive marks. Tuck the vellum behind something that is solid like I did with my card stock. Then place your adhesive on the vellum behind the card stock.
Speaking of hearts, I want to thank you for all your thoughts and prayers for my Dad. He is doing well after a 5 Bypass Surgery.
