My little sweet heart | Tamara Buckler

Hey Hey CTY friends,

I’m up today to share my first CUT to YOU layout for July.  This one is a bright and beautiful page as befitting CUT to YOU’s Birthday month!! This page features the Stitch I Love You Cut File.

If I’m honest, I wasn’t sure about the stitched Cut Files, but now that I have given one a go, I am sold! They add a really cool background effect, and you are able to work right over the top of them without losing the effect.

I have added some double sided tape behind the main card and my patterned paper background to give dimension. But you could adhere the patterned paper directly to the page just as Gwen has done beautifully here.

To highlight and compliment the Cut File, I built my photo and embellishment clusters to sit just above the cut out section. I love how this ties all the elements together.

To complete the page, I added some strips of paper to the top and bottom of the page, and some splatters of paint and ink. I love how this all came together.

Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you pop over to Facebook HQ to get involved in all the birthday fun.

 Big loves,

Tam xo
