Family Stories Layouts

Hello!  Today I am excited to show you a couple of projects I did using the A.M.A.Z.I.N.G Family Stories collection!

The colors in the collection are pretty fabulous!  For my "Butterfly" layout, I reached for the papers with a soft and pretty feel - using the backsides of "Noted", "Doily" "Flower" and "Anchor" papers.  I love the cute "Notecards" paper and cut out the "take note" from there.  I wanted to compliment the pink butterfly on my daughter's face and I found adding a few touches of pink did the trick!

I added my embellishments in groups of three.  Note the three butterflies (with the CUTE sequins in their centre) and the cluster of three on the notecard of a brad, button and enamel dot.  

The best part about this collection is that it can be used for any themed pages!  My next page features the photos I took of my friend and her husband when they were expecting.  This time, I wanted to bring in some of the richer colors to pop against the black in the photos!

There are so many embellishments in this collection that makes me feel like a kid in a candy store!  I think I have a little bit of everything on this page:  Chipboard, brads, enamel dots, die-cuts, stickers, and my favorite...the envelopes!!!  A perfect spot to tuck in that ultrasound photo :-)

Here is another closeup so you can see more of the delicious embellishments in more detail:

Well I hope you RUN to the nearest scrapbook store and pick up this collection!  You will LOVE it and reach for it over and over for all of your FAMILY STORIES!!!


Thank-you for making my day!
