November is a natural time for many to start thinking about family and what we’re grateful for. Lots of family photos are being taken for those Christmas cards too.
So what are you going to do with all the other family photos?
Well, I think our Miss Laura has a page for that!
Check it out….
I just love how happy this layout is.
And I think those patterned flowers are my favorite!
Here’s what Laura has to say:
Kerri’s cut files and Bella Blvd’s colorful collections pretty much go hand-in-hand for me, since I’m lucky enough to design for both teams. I’ve done quite a few layouts for both Kerri and Bella, featuring photos I’ve taken of my cousin and his family over the last few years, and I decided to scrap another set of photos of them for my team-up layout.
I pulled my colors from the photos themselves, and picked out some Bella patterned papers in navy blue, yellow, green, and brown. I used the confetti patterned paper as my “neutral” paper for the side of my layout where I knew I’d have my photos and title. I usually don’t die cut all of my elements from the same patterned paper, but that’s just sort of how it worked out this time as I liked the navy blue woodgrain patterned paper for most of my pieces. I die cut the circle border to add along the left side of page, to break up the “heaviness” of too much patterned paper on the page (if that’s even a thing?). Alongside the circle border strip, I added a strip of yellow chevron patterned paper, layered with a white dotted Clear Cut transparency on top.
I went with the “love at home” title from Kerri’s All In The Family kit, as we took these photo at my cousin’s house. We often take their photos in other locations, so I loved the idea of adding the “home” touch to the page. I love the “together” tab from the Every Little Thing kit, for tucking behind photos or layers of papers. And to embellish the page, I die cut some of Kerri’s Flower Power flowers (one of her Friday Freebies!) from coordinating patterned papers and added chipboard circles or enamel dots to the centers.
