November Moxxie Blog Hop!

Welcome!!!  Are you ready for a new Moxxie Design Team Blog Hop?

The November featured collection is "Forever Family".

This amazing color palette is perfect for family portraits, heritage photos, and even a pretty fall-themed layout! The front sides of each paper are title papers for each member of the family.  The back sides have a variety of both masculine and feminine patterns for you to use to accent your photos. 

Card makers and paper crafters; the designs are small, so even on a smaller sized cut of paper, you are still going to get the colors and textures of the large design.

In addition to these great papers, the embellishments will help give your creations a family-type flair. Use them as titles, journaling spaces, accent pieces and embellishment clusters to finish off your pages.

The Moxxie Muses have put together some awesome ideas for this line and you could win* the entire collection.  


Want to see what I created using this fantastic line?

"Grandparents are Great!"

I loved these photos that I grabbed of our little guy on the day of his big brother's birthday!  Grandma brought him a gift to help celebrate so he wouldn't feel left out while his brother was opening up all of his presents. Grandma Rocks!!!

I used one of our Mini Die Cuts from the Fall collection stack as a photo mat and incorporated many die cuts in the design from the collection. I've also accented with a circular cluster cut from my Silhouette and a few cut from my own dies. A button and bit of baker's twine added a bit of texture.  I used some foam tape under the sentiment block as well.  

The back of the bubble sentiment was lined with yellow paper to make the "You Rock" pop a bit. Accent circle bits were attached to the square border on the bottom for fun.   : )

This project was partially inspired by Sketch #344 from Sketch Inspiration.
