Most of the times, the first things I look at the papers are the patterns that I can cut. I love it when I can cut a lot of shapes and layer them on top of each other to achieve beautiful clusters that would accentuate my photos.

It's love at first sight when I got hold of Home Sweet Home, I had a blast cutting the flowers and the birds found in Alma paper. I'm sharing with you two layouts today - - both having a lot of fussy cutting!!!

Here's my first layout: The big flower cut-outs are perfect for scrapping my 5x7 photo (it's my current fave size to scrap!!!!):

Supplies: Home Sweet Home papers (Alma, Maddison St., Midland Ave, Rockland Rd), Walk in the Park Fabric Brads.

The Walk in the Park fabric brads work perfectly as flower centers:

Random cut-outs adhered with pop dots for added dimension (itty bitty houses from Midland Ave. over Maddison St.'s!!):

Cute birdie sighting in Alma paper (pop dots really do the trick, don't you think?):

Here's my second layout: I love this saying from A. Danielson found in Maddison St. paper, but I couldn't think of a title that would go well with it (so forgive me for the very original "Remember" title!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!). I cut the quote strip in three sections and incorporated it in the design of my layout:

Supplies: Home Sweet Home papers (Alma, Beach, Cedar Cres, Maddison St., Midland Ave, Rockland Rd), Walk in the Park Fabric Brads.

More cut-outs in this layout!!!

I hope I inspired you to take out your stash of Home Sweet Home papers and cut, cut, cut!!!! Have fun creating!!!

Until next time,
