Hi CTY friends Rachel here! Today I have a 8.5×11 inch layout featuring the gorgeous recent release  So Berry Sweet cut file.

I wanted to scrap a photo of one of my 3D paper crafts, a picnic basket and strawberries and as well as this perfect cut file I used Crate Paper Sweet Story collection a perfect pair!

I next set about paper piecing the strawberry which I kept true to life and then added to my page with foam tape. As I always do I used the ‘release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) to pull elements out of the cut file and cut individually.

I next added my photo (2.5×2.5 inches) which I matted against a yellow paper to keep the balance between red and yellow. I added a large die cut to draw your eye to the photo and then added some phrase sentiments to tie in with my theme.

I then added smaller embellishments to finish off my layout, some with foam tape for dimension. I used a gorgeous floral paper for my border which contrast wonderfully against the white cardstock. It’s fun to scrap memories that don’t involve people, but other things that are a part of you and your life.
