Be Happy | Roses and Frames | Rachel Lowe

Hey Cut to You friends! Today I have a layout featuring one of the new super pretty floral cut files, Roses and Frames

I have used the new collection by Heidi Swapp Honey & Spice collection which is just beautiful!52D32A21-CA8F-431D-9BBA-3027028CEF2D

I decided I wanted to use a 3×3 inch photo, so re sized the cut file so the frame would fit my photo. I centred this on my white cardstock but did not glue down the leaves so they would give the appearance of movement on my page.

I paper pieced the two roses and leaves by using the ‘Release Compound’ function (Silhouette Cameo) which allows you to seperate the rose petals/leaves and cut, which means your roses will look perfect!

I then attached my photo with foam tape to create height on my layout and ensure your eye would be drawn to it.

The second frame I created an embellishment cluster which reflected the theme of my photo/layout. Again I foam taped some of the elements which allowed me to tuck some under. This is where I took the opportunity to add a sub title and word sentiments (my form of journalling for this layout).

I added a second embellishment cluster to the right of my photo, adding some more word sentiments, a gorgeous bird die cut finished off with some tiny glitter hearts and a word sentiment tab at the top of my photo.

Lastly I added my title ‘Be Happy’ with foam tape and to break up the white I added some light splatters of gold spray.

You of course could add two photos and create embellishment clusters to each side of the frames.

And there you have it one super pretty layout where most of the work is done for you in regards to design with this gorgeous cut file.
