Hi there! I have a project that I'm really excited to share today that's up on the Doodlebug blog. I know I say that a lot, but this time I'm super duper excited! ;)
Our challenge was to find a Doodlebug project that inspired us on Pinterest and as soon as I came across this "Welcome Home" layout by Doodlebug's Tonya Prawitt I knew I had found a winner! Isn't it clever?
I have been slowly working on an 8-1/2 x 11 album about the building of our new home and when I saw this layout I knew it would be perfect adapted as a cover page for my book!
I have a general color theme going throughout my album with browns, blues, reds and greens so I did my best to pull colors that would tie in with this. It was seriously so much fun shopping my stash for just the right elements from so many different Doodlebug collections!
To create my little house I adapted THIS cutting file by Samantha Walker from the Silhouette store. Knowing I had more vertical space to work with, I elongated mine to become a two story house by welding two houses together (one on top of the other).
For my siding I cut out 15 scalloped borders (sized to the width of the house) and used a bit of chalk ink along the edges to make them stand out.
This was a ton of fun to make. I hope I have inspired you to experiment with mixing and matching your collections! :)
