Hi there CUT to YOU friends! I’m back today to share a fun page using one of the many awesome cutfiles from the CUT to YOU shop!

For this layout I used the fun ‘Arrows’ cut file which you can find here in the shop.

I started by cutting the cutfile on white cardstock but I made sure I kept the arrows from the middle of the cutfile as I wanted to use them to add extra texture to the page. I then backed the cutfile using this lovely patterned paper from Dear Lizzy’s She’s Magic Collection.

Before adhering the cutfile with adhesive foam, I stuck the extra arrows down from the cutfile under where the cutfile was going to go for a little extra interest.

I then matted my photographs on some white cardstock and some leftover pieces of the pattered paper.

Next, I backed a perspective using more of the patterned paper and added it to the layout below the photographs.

Finally, I embellished the layout using different pieces from Dear Lizzy She’s Magic, Pinkfresh Studio’s Just a Little Lovely and Paige Evans’s Truly Grateful. I picked out all the pinks and oranges to coordinate with the paper including die cut ephemera and puffy stickers.

I hope you like it and it inspires you to create!
