Let’s Roll | Tamara Buckler

Hey hey everyone,

I’m back on the blog today with a fun and bright layout featuring two of our awesome Cut Files – the Skate Page builder and the Christmas Banners Background.

I have wanted to use the Skate page builder Cut File for aaages! And I knew I had the perfect picture for it, I just had to find it! I sized the Cut File in my Silhouette software to suit a 9 x 12in layout, and cut the skates from some pink patterned paper and the title from white cardstock.

I backed the skates and the title with a mixture of paper scraps and some awesome rainbow paper from the Photo Play Tulla and Norbert collection. I also used silver washi tape for the ‘metal’ areas on the skates.

I was a bit bummed after I backed my title, as I usually like to be deliberately random when I am using a mixture of papers to back the letters – but because these words were seperate, I didn’t notice that I used the rainbow paper for the first letter of both. Not a big deal, just one of my quirks! We all have those right?

I hadn’t planned on using the Christmas Banner on this page, but I had it cut and sitting on my desk, and it fit perfectly in that corner, so why not!? Perfect! The file had been cut in white card stock, and because I had decreased it’s size so much, and the lines are very thin. This made it a little tricky to back, so it’s not perfect, but I’m okay with that!

To finish off my page I added some wood veneer and acrylic embellishments from Corbett Creations, and really these small touches are all it needed as the Cut Files speak for themselves.

Make sure you have joined us over at Cut to You HQ on Facebook. We still have challenges running from iNSD, so jump in and check it out.

Hope you’re all staying safe and well.

Big Loves, Tam xo
