Fabulous Happy Days | Tamara Buckler

Hello lovely CTY friends!!

I’m so happy to be back today to share another layout with you. I’m constantly trying to think of different ways to use our Cut Files, because I want to use them on all the things, and so today I have come up with a bit of a twist on a background file.

I have used an oldie but a goodie on this page – the Heart Lovers Unite Background Cut File – which I have used previously here.

Instead of treating this like a complete background, I resized it in my silhouette software, and trimmed around the hearts I needed to create the matt for my photo cluster.

I adhered some tissue paper behind the Cut File and used some foam tape to lift the matt up off the background.

I went around the outside of the Cut File matt in white roller pen for further definition, and roughed up the edges for some dimension. I think using black card stock against this background has really helped too.

I love how using the Cut File this way has held together all my photos and embellishments, and while it may not be the most prominent part of the layout, it plays a really important role because of this.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope I’ve inspired you to use your Cut Files in different ways! Make sure you pop over to the shop to check out the latest release and all the new Christmas goodies!

Big Loves,

Tam xo
