I really like the homemade paper-pieced look when I see other scrappers do it, but I don’t usually try that style myself. But this photo and title just screamed to me to give it a try.
I saw a poster a while back that said, “Wherever we are together that is home,” and I bookmarked it in my brain to use when the right photo came along. And then this past weekend I was flipping through a package of my photos and saw this one of my family. It was 1994, and my parents had decided to move from their home of 30 years in Ohio to Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Family friends held a going-away party for us, and this photo was taken at the end of it. I thought the story behind this photo fit that poster’s message perfectly.
So I created the title art in the Silhouette Studio software before cutting it twice to use here. If you have a Silhouette (this file will only work on this machine) and would like to use it on a layout of your own, please leave me a comment on this post telling me you’d like it, and I will email it to you. How’s that for a slice of fried gold?
I’m really pleased with how this simple design turned out, so I’m sure I’ll find ways to do more with this homey, handmade look in the future.
Great layout! I’d love to receive a copy of the title you created.
Thanks in advance.
VERY nice file-I would love to have this! Thank you so much!

I would love to have this file. I grew up in the military so we moved from place to place. This describes how it was for me, my parents, and my sister perfectly. No matter where we went, as long as we were together, we were home. Thank you for sharing your work.
