Hi everyone! It’s Marie here on the blog today with this pretty layout documenting a lovely family photo. Family photos are few and far between in our house as one of us is usually taking the photo!
And here is the Spring Floral cutfile I used.
I started by adding the image into my Cricut software and removing the outer and some of the not-needed inner contour lines so that the main shapes were cut out of the cardstock so I was using the negative of the file as I wanted to feature it as my background.
I decided to pair it with the beautiful Unforgettable collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio (which I have to admit I have totally been hoarding). I used a turquoise to back the cutfile and then added a small piece of the woodgrain paper around two of the edges (and kept the rest for another time).
I used several different sheets from the 6×8 pad to mat my photo and add lots of layers. Then I sorted through my die cut ephemera and tucked in lots of florals and hearts around the photo and into different parts of the cutfile.
I used the foam title ‘Family’ and added a few of the small black hearts at various points too. I then finished off by adding some pretty little sequins and some enamel dots, again tucked into the cutfile and sprinkled all over! I also tucked a small tag behind the photo and added some cotton thread which was then swirled down the side of the page and of course I added some of those beautiful butterflies!
I love the way this has turned out and I love how the cutfile adds so much interest to the background and allowed me to tuck lots of little details in too!
