Best Buds | Raechelle Bellus

Hi y’all! I tend to gravitate towards the floral designs, so selecting the super fun July 2020 Circles Sliced Background cut file was a little out of my comfort zone, but I have to say that I love how this layout turned out!

I just had to use this file as soon as I saw it and once I decided upon a photo and the paper, everything fell togther easily.

My son-in-law recently took my granddaughter fishing and this photo of their special moments caught my heart.

I pulled in the fish theme as well as colors from the photo. Adding several patterns keeps this layout fun and interesting.

I added some die cuts to create some visual interest and to add dimension.

Some clear thread creates an illusion of fishing line which adds to the overall theme of the page.

Keeping the photo matting simple by using two layers of vellum is a simple way to add focus to the photo, but doesn’t distract from all the patterns.

I hope you step out of your comfort zone with your next cut file purchase! The end result just might turn out to be one of your favorites, just as this is mine.

Check out the CTY store for all the fabulous files.

See you next month!
