For the Love of Family

There was a lovely family tree inspired layout on the Close To My Heart blog and I fell in love. What a beautiful gift idea for family. In preparing my version, I chose to go with bolder colors and add the touch of Poppy.

A cocoa cardstock base page with a Crystal Blue matted White Daisy cardstock piece and a Cricut circle cut in Poppy matted a top a lacy Cricut cut Cocoa cardstock piece.

A torn strip of Cocoa run through my Cuttlebug using the Close To My Heart woodgrain embossing folder, love the little slit at the top of the embossing folder so you can create longer projects like this. Here I will add a little strip with the name of the person receiving this (it is a gift --shhhhh don't tell). I finished it off with Poppy Thick Twine.

Rectangles of Cocoa hold the White Daisy matted labels for daughter, father and mother and finished with the grandparents. All stamped using For Family (C1631)

The branches and leaves are from the stamp set Tree Friend (D1677), it is cool that you can bend the clear stamps to get the different direction needed for the look of a tree.

The title was stamped using For Family.
