For most of us that scrapbook our main subjects that we scrap about is our families. The 3 Bugs In A Rug Home Grown line is the perfect line for family related layouts. The Home Grown ChitChat stickers are perfect with all the wonderful family and home quotes and sayings. I love the double sided papers with their bold patterns and beautiful colors that coordinate so well together. I also love the cute little houses that are on some of the papers and stickers, very homey! 3 Bugs In A Rug has always been one of my favorite companies and this line was no exception, love it!! This line also has a cute clear stamp set that matches the papers!
It Takes A Family To Make A Home: I don't have many family photos with all four of us together so when I do get some I love to scrap them. These photos were taken on Christmas Day 2008. I wanted to scrap them with the Home Grown line and didn't want a "Christmas" feel to them so I changed the photos to black & white and used photo borders to help hide the Christmas tree in the background. I started with the back side of the Home paper for my background. Then added a piece of the Big Floral paper to frame my photos and a piece of the back side on the Frame paper. I used the Tiny Alphas and Glitter Thickers to create my title for this layout. To finish my layout I added a couple of the Chitchat stickers and some Prima bling!
I Am Always Here For You: My daughter, Marissa took these photos of Erik and I shortly after Mother's Day 2008. This little man is a total mama's boy and I love it! With all the pattern papers that I used on this layout I choose to use the back sides of all three. I used the Trees, Frame and Family Words papers and layered them on some Bazzill cardstock. After I added some of the Chitchat stickers and my title using the Tiny Alphas and Vinyl Thickers I then doodled around my papers. To finish I simply added a couple of Crushed Velvet Brads from Doodlebug on my doodling.
Home Is Where the Heart Is: I started with the Big Polka Dots paper and used the back side which has big bold stripes on it. Layered a piece of the Family Words and a piece of the Floral papers before placing my photo down. The Doodlebug Sugar Coated Brads were the perfect accent around the top corner of my photo. I used a mix of the glitter chipboard Thickers and the Tiny Alphas from Making Memories for my title.
We Belong Together: This layout was created using four of the pattern papers from the Home Grown line. I started with the back side of the Family Words, which is the brown with white dots pattern. Next I cut pieces from the Floral and Dots papers. Then used the back side of the Trees paper for my scallop border, which I later added the Doodlebug Sugar Coated Brads to. I cut hearts from some of the leftover scraps and added some Chitchat stickers. To create my title I used the Vinyl Thickers and Tiny Alpha letters.
