Stamping in a heart (and NEWS!)

So for October, the ScrapStreet team showcased some My Favorite Things stamps and projects. I thought I would share a layout that I made for the article. I received a stamp set with a lot of words and I wasn't sure how I wanted to incorporate them all onto my layout. But then it hit me to try something a little different. Here's what I did:

I cut a heart from scratch paper and used the negative part as a mask.


I stamped the words all so they would be inside my heart.


Then I even decided to stitch around the heart to make it even more obvious. Here's what my final layout looks like:

And here are some close up's:
