Hello Hello! It’s Michelle back today with a new layout featuring our newest collection Daydream for our current ‘Home is where the heart is’ theme. I chose a couple of cute photos of Leila to document from a few years back when we were in the process of building our first and current family home. Here’s a closer look..
How stinkin cute is that little face peeking through the un-bricked walls of our house in progress? Leila loved coming with us to check the progress of the house and I’m so glad I took photos to document the moment.
I paired these sweet photos with some fun house cutfiles from CUT to YOU, designed by fellow DT Member Gwen. There’s both a big house design and a row of smaller houses that I’ve backed with a mixture of patterns in pink, yellow, blue and grey.
I even gave the big house a little window box of flowers using a small floral cluster from the 6×8 paper stack version of Garden Variety. This little cluster was the main inspiration for the colour palette used for all the houses.
The papers I used for all these cute houses came from the 6×8 paper stack and include mini versions of designs from the bigger papers, most are from the reverse sides. Garden Variety – Main house, Daisy Days – blue daisy strip, Happy Place – roof of main house, All a Flutter – Heart on roof, Sun Shower – top of roof and chimney. I’ve used the same papers for the mini houses too.
I added another cluster of florals that spill out of the chimney, with a sprinkling of sequins
To the right of the ‘main house’ I’ve created a larger cluster using the photos, mini houses, mixed title and more florals. The title is made using an ephemera flag, cardstock title piece and some handwriting on a cut apart tag from the ‘Happy Place’ paper.
I finished the layout by backing the cardstock with some of the newest Cocoa Vanilla Studio Woodgrain pattern – Over the Rainbow – the reverse side to that amazing big rainbow paper. I also added some handwritten journaling to fill the white space to the top right of the houses and gave the whole layout a good splattering of gold ink.
Well crafty friends that’s all from me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my take on our ‘Home is where the Heart is’ theme. Thanks so much for stopping by, please be sure to share with us in the CVS Group on facebook if you create something for this theme too. We love to see what you all create.
Until next time, Happy Scrapping!
