Family Portraits by Ashli

Hello, hello! Ashli Oliver (aka soapHOUSEmama) here with you today to share my first project for the CATfile DT. I am so excited about the Family Portraits project and when I saw the awesome prompts for January, I couldn’t wait to get started!

Using the Word Cut files and several of the printables, I got to work!

First up, the intro page for the whole album. I plan on using a Studio Calico 6×8 Handbook, when they are in stock. So, all of these pages are 6×8…

Next up, is my spread for January…

How cute is the little January tab cut file? I backed it with a bit of one of the printables and I just love it! I plan on cutting a slit in the page protector to accommodate it…



The you and me cut file was perfect to lay across these printables and stitch down…


And, I put my mixed media hat on for the right side of the spread, layering up some paint with lots of the printable tags…
