There’s a video on my YouTube channel if you’d like to see how it all came together. You can find it here: You and Me
I started by making the cutfile approximately 10 inches tall as I wanted it to be a big focal point of the layout. I decided to pair it with the ‘Just a Little Lovely’ collection from Pinkfresh Studio. I wanted to keep the layout quite light and delicate so I backed the cutfile with vellum.
I wanted to scrap some photos of myself and my husband as I very rarely do! I printed them on my Selphy Printer so that they looked like photo booth photos. I used two strips and overlapped them. I put the photos on cheesecloth to give a softer look and propped them up on dimensional foam.
I embellished with the acetate flowers from the same collection placed around different parts of the cutfile. I also wound up some white thread to add some more softer details. I also added some light-green sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps to add some shimmery details.
I also added a few pieces of die cut ephemera to add some variety.
I added the words ‘You’ and ‘Me’ to complete the title using the Ampersand Cutfile as part of the title. I hope that I have inspired you to try using a cutfile in a new way!
Until next time,
