Welcome friends! Today is the fun blog hop with Bella Blvd + The Cut Shoppe!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  You should have just come by way of the fabulous  LEANNE ALLISON.  

For my layout I combined the beautiful Make Your Mark collection and the All Tied Up Alpha.

I pulled the letters into my Silhouette software and released the compound path to remove the “strings” from the center of the letters.  Next, I traced the outline of the letters and cut them out a the fun patterned paper from the collection.  I was inspired by a recent layout by Ali Edwards talking about the bonds people share.

I used dimensional adhesive to adhere the initial letters of all the members of our family to the left side of the spread.

Next, I embellished the left side by adding a few puffy addition stickers along with two hearts from the ephemera pack.

On the right side of the spread I printed a large photo of our family and added my journaling talking about our little family and how special the bond we share is.  To embellish the right side I added an acrylic “bond” sentiment along with a chipboard quote and finished off the cluster by stitching down another heart from the ephemera pack.

I love the simplicity of the layout with the focus on story.  The beautiful paper from the Make your Mark collection and the All Tied up Alpha were the perfect compliments to my story!

Thanks again for stopping by! Remember that The Cut Shoppe is giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to the shop & running a special this weekend in honor of the hop and Bella Blvd is giving away an amazing prize pack!
