Hello! Thank you for stopping by the blog today! I have a family tree layout to share using the Maggie Holmes Flourish collection by Crate Paper. I had so many ideas whirling around in my head as to how to approach the layout. I started by looking through photos and realized I don't have photos readily available of extended family. I thought it would be fun to focus on my daughter, myself and my parents for this layout.
I started out with a tree cut file that I cut from white cardstock. I fiddled around with the cutout tree for quite awhile until it hit me to try the background with the tree cut out of it. I slipped a piece of teal green patterned paper behind the cutout and loved it!
From that point, I chose my photos and then decided on an arrangement. I added the photo of Hannah at the bottom left, a photo of her and I on the right and a photo of myself and my mom and dad on the top right. I decided to use pinks and yellows to embellish the photos and got out the floral die cut pack! I LOVE the flowers that Maggie Holmes includes in her collections. My instinct is to hoard them, but on the layout, they went! I added some washi tape at the bottom of the layout to "ground" the tree and popped on the cute little partridge embossed puffy sticker.
At the top of the tree, I added a fussy cut dragonfly from the Charming paper and a for a little joke I added the squirrel holding the little acorn! (Nuts don't fall far from the tree) Haha! I tucked in some of the gorgeous gold puffy sticker leaves and finished off with some word strips from the cardstock sticker pack.
I hope you are inspired to create a family tree for your family! I want to do another layout with old-time family photos!
