Carta Bella Paper: Growing Up Together with a Process Video

Last year I took a few shots of my kids dressed in their Sunday best on Easter morning. The clothes they were wearing that day weren’t the typical frilly, pastel colors of the season, so I have been on the lookout for a collection that would really enhance these photos.
The Carta Bella Our Family collection fit the bill! The flowers and butterflies hint to spring, while the rich colors coordinate perfectly with the colors of my photos.

See how I created this page in the Process Video below!
One of my very favorite techniques to use when scrapbooking is fussy-cutting designs from patterned papers. I used a pair of fine-tipped scissors to cut out several butterflies from the Home Sweet Home paper. I added punched circles and wood buttons tied with cream twine to the center of each one and then popped them up on foam squares to use as accents. I love the way they add movement to this page.

Another butterfly accompanies the die cut tag at the bottom of the page. The space at the top of the tag was the perfect place to stamp the date. I added a floral sticker coming out from behind the tag and butterfly for even more interest.

I love all of the family quotes and sentiments included as a part of the Our Family collection. They warm my heart. The “Growing Up Together” die cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack was the perfect saying to use for a title on this page. I added the large floral sticker behind the die cut to call more attention to it and to really help it stand out.

I grouped a few more stickers from the Sticker Sheet together to the right of the horizontal photo to complete this part of the page. I love that pocket watch, and how it hints to the fact that time spent with family is the best way to spend our days!

The rich colors of the Our Family collection worked perfectly for these photos of my older kids on Easter. How about you? Do you have a family group shot that needs documenting?
