Hi Friends its Michelle S here today with a new layout share for you all. I chose to document a funny family photo for this creation to features one of the ‘Special Edition’ designs released as part of the NEW Home Bodies release. Its an interesting time world-wide right now, and were taking each day as it comes in our little house.

The Home Grid cut file is perfect for filling up an entire 12×12 layout, and those cut little houses! I had a hard time working out which pattern paper I wanted to back them all with.

I resized the design in silhouette studio to approx 11.5 inch square and cut it out on white cardstock. I then chose a couple of different pattern papers from the Bloom Street collection to back the different elements. Dark floral for the letters, ombre hearts on pink for the ‘O’ heart, multi colour hearts for the house’s, diagonal stripe paper for the house roof and the blue tartan style design for the chimney.

I’ve added some vellum to each area of the grid that had an element to fill in with pattern paper, then adhered the cut file piece to another piece of cardstock using foam tape for a slight hint of dimension. This entire piece was then adhered to a 12×12 piece of the dark / bright florals from the same collection.

I kept the layers behind our fun family photo to a minimum as there was already so much colour going on in the background. I chose elements that co-ordinated with the dark floral paper

Along the top right of the cut file Ive added a cluster of elements that sit slightly over one of the little houses

Diagonally across the page along the bottom edge I’ve added similar elements to the top cluster to tie it all together.

Well friends thats all from me today. I hope this post has found you safe and well. Be sure to check out the other cut file designs that are part of this collection. You can find them HERE. Also don’t forget to share all things CUT to YOU within the CTY HQ group on Facebook

Until next time, Happy Scrapping
