Hi folks, Laura here today. I thought I was going to be making a 12×12 layout with both the House Front cut file and the Cyber/Home School file but I accidentally cut them on different shades of white cardstock and they looked a bit off together. I then discovered that my photos fit nicely inside the house windows and that led me down an entirely different path.
I figure I’m going to have quite a few photos of my nephews home schooling adventures and what better than keeping them all together in a mini album. This might be the front page; it might evolve again as we go and become an inside page! You can really tell this is in the “seed of an idea” stage and not the completed project that I would usually be sharing in a blog post! This is a 6×6 page, the house being five and a bit inches at its widest point.
The cut file is such a cute design and for me was calling out to simply be backed with papers. As I mentioned the subject my photos fit perfectly in the windows giving the illusion you were looking in to the house to the boys inside.
I chopped up one photo to fill the bottom two windows. I then used the left overs of that 3×4 print to fill the top two windows. It took a little bit of trickery as the bits left weren’t quite big enough to fill the windows – so I added some patterned paper curtains to cover the gap. I hand cut a few abstract trees to accompany the house on the page and called it good.
I may go back and add some clouds but I’ll leave that decision until I know where I’m going with the rest of the album. You can find the process video here.
