Hi everyone, firstly…..Happy Father’s Day to all those special people in everyone’s lives!

Today on the blog I want to focus in on the amazing A5 paper pads that are now available with most CVS collections. However, I was feeling sentimental about the day that it is today so I have created a layout featuring my man and the dad to my two kiddies.

This man is truly amazing as a father and a husband who I really look up to ….  and in these times, that are so hard for us all it is so important to appreciate and acknowledge those who make such a positive impact in our lives. To say thank you…I love you… or to pay it forward with a kind gesture.

Here is the layout that I created today to share with you:

What I love about the A5 pads is that the designs we all love on the 12×12 designs are printed smaller on the pads. Which means, when you are backing small parts of a cut file, the printed designs fit within like they were meant to be.


The subject of my layout as mentioned previously is my husband . I used a new cut file from ‘CTY’ Cut to You to create days layout. I had already printed photos in my stash to fit within the file but I am guessing that these would be 2″x2″ pics.

Since we’re focusing on the A5 pads I wanted to show you how great the smaller prints revert to a smaller cut file. The process may take a while but it is so worth it. I know there are an abundance of YouTube videos of creators who do this same thing on their layouts.

Here is a look in more detail:


I used the ephemera pack and floral ephemera to embellish to the side of my photos. I used three of the wood buttons too!


The ‘you have my heart’ was a perfect addition to this layout. This was from the 12×12 cut apart paper.


I used a combination of regular adhesive and foam adhesive to adhere the main elements to the layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by the CVs blog today – I am sending you so much love and good health.


I appreciate what a trying time it is for all of us. So I hope this page has brought you some happiness. Here I n Vic we are into the 200+ days of  lockdown and remote learning….its starting to take its toll, as a teacher and a Mumma.
