All in the Family

We're having a ton of fun on the Lily Bee Design blog this week with a game of tag. I was tagged by Stacey yesterday to create a layout based on this week's sketch, created by yours truly, but with an added twist.  She challenged me to add die cuts to my layout so I created a few SVG files for Lily Bee's new We R Family collection. You can download them for free at the end of this post.

In case, you missed it, here's the sketch that's inspiring us this week.
Tag Your It Sketch by Heather Leopard

Here's what I created:

Supplies: We R Family collection: (Papers: Family Rules, Family Ties, Family Time, Game Night, Family Dinner; 6x6 Tiny Tablet; Daily Deck Cards; Wood Veneer; Metal Badges); Urban Autumn collection (Papers: Oktoberfest, Tri-State); Sweet Shoppe collection: Letter Stickers

I had this layout in mind utilizing the Daily Deck cards when I created this sketch. That said, you could easily add more photos to the page.

I just love the wood veneer people. I knew I wanted to highlight them so I created an offset image of them and then cut them out as a family on one of the Daily Deck cards. I just resized them to fit my card and cut them out.

To create my title, I punched individual letters out of the Game Night paper. I used a small circle punch, which was the perfect size.

I also cut hearts out of the bottom section of the striped paper before adhering it to the background paper. I backed the negative portion with coordinating paper and then saved the cuts to use as embellishments over one of the Daily Deck cards.

So how about some free SVG cutting files? You can download all of our cutting files HERE or you can download the ones I used by clicking on their direct links:

Head on over to the blog to see who I tagged for tomorrow and the challenge I gave her.

Thanks for stopping by. Now go on and get crafty!
