Swing Kids 12 x 12 Layout Done with the Silhouette Cameo



Swing Kids

When my kids were little, we spent our summers in Central PA at the house that had belonged to my grandparents.  It is a 100+ year old farmhouse in a Borough of about 600, so small we used to joke about a population spike when we were in town.  It was quite a change from our suburban life in South Florida and I have many fond memories of those days.  My kids loved being up there, we had a huge yard with 20+ acres beyond that.  We raised chickens, planted a garden and enjoyed the slower pace of life in the country.  One of their favorite things as toddlers was the Little Tykes swing that hung from the large apple tree in our backyard.  I have pictures of both my son and my daughter, born 6 years apart, in the swing being pushed by their daddy on their 2nd birthdays.  In reality, I was the one who spent hours upon hours pushing them in that swing, but of course, I have no pictures of that!  Anyway, I have wanted to scrapbook these pictures for a long time and when I got my Cameo, I decided it was time to tackle this layout.  I created the cut file for the swing in Silhouette Studio, link to download for personal below.  I used grass – tree border by Alaa’ K for the tree, grass by Silhouette, the clouds from hot air balloon by Lori Whitlock, all from the Silhouette Online Store, and Comic Sans for the title.  You can’t tell in the photo, but the swings and the clouds are mounted on Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals.  I am sorry for the pitiful photo, my scanner is not speaking to my laptop, some sort of tiff between the two!

  1. Great idea! How do you like your Cameo? I have a Cricut which I hate because it never cuts anything the size I think it should. I am trying to decide whether to sell it or refuse to let it win…
