For The Family

Hi everyone! I love paper collections that are versatile and Paper House’s One Big Happy Family Collection is just that!

I had no trouble coming up with lots of projects perfect for my family.

For this masculine “Dad” page I used the One Big Happy Family Paper Pad, which includes lots of stickers and cut outs! Also the Gold Foil Bird Overlay, some Jute Twine and Winter Blues Button Embellishment Bottle.

A card for a cousin (there are also stickers for brothers, sisters, grandparents, moms & dads) uses both the One Big Happy Family Paper Pad and the Mixed Card Pack, which contains card-sized die-cuts and overlays.

Using overlays can be tricky. I find that “hiding” the adhesive, either under the printed image or under an area that will be covered by a photo or embellishment, is a good trick.

A Sara’s Surfaces 6″x6″ Album provides for a wonderful blank surface to create a Family themed album or even an album specifically dedicated to an individual, like a grandmother.

That’s all for today. Have fun and make something pretty this week. Happy crafting!

    So, nice and love the saying about every family having a story. I always enjoy what you make and pick your “idea archives” for techniques and more ideas than I can come up with.

    I like your idea for the scrapbook cover. I’m presently making one for my son and all I could come up with was “This is your life”. I like yours to use “Everybody has a story and this is yours”. Nice Dad page too.
