New Home

A new year and a new kit, to represent a new home! Here is my second layout using the Papermaze Kit for January 2023.

This layout records our house before we purchased it, using the photos taken for the Estate Agent, which I changed to black and white to work better with the photos. I think I will make a second layout with photos taken in the same rooms five years later, to show how much the place has changed.

From the kit I used:
Simple Stories - The Simple Life collection - Tags & Gather, Eat, Laugh
Bazzill Basics Cardstock -

From my stash I used:
Sewing machine and black thread
chipboard alpha stickers with a glitter finish
Forest Moss Distress Ink
More twine

That's all for today, I'll be back with two more layouts soon.
Thanks for looking.
