Fishing in Paradise | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hi there, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. I am very busy nowadays as school has started again, and have to organise and take care of everything. It was so good to have some time at my desk and re-live the summer memories at the Lake Balaton. My hubby loves fishing, and he succeeded in sharing his passion. My daughter couldn’t wait the time to get to the lake and use her fishing-rod. She and her little friend had caught some ablets 😀

I was very happy to see the Fishnet Banner cut file among the September Release! Although we didn’t have the chance to go abroad this summer and there are no starfish in the Lake Balaton, I think it makes a great background for my layout 🙂

For this layout I used several different collections from my stash. First I cut the Fishnet Banner cut file from smooth white cardstock and backed the starfish with some yellow patterned paper from the Summer Lights collection of Pink Paislee. I glued it on the Sunshine paper from the Gather collection by Maggie Holmes.

Then I cut two hibiscus flowers from smooth white cardstock as well. If you have already signed up to the CUT to YOU newsletter, you have got this beautiful cut file on the 1st September for free! Isn’t it worth to join us? Gwen is so generous that she even gives two cut file freebies a month! And all of them are so beautiful and have good quality as this Hibiscus Cut File is:

I backed the Hibiscus Cut File with some patterned papers from the Confetti Wishes collection by Pink Paislee and the leaves from the Summer Lights.

As my daughter is looking to the left on the photo, I decided to place my photo on the right and arranged everything diagonally.

I made 2 clusters using the two Hibiscus cut files, I added some die cut palm and monsterra leaves to the flowers.

I also fussy cut some hibiscus flowers from the No. 05 paper of the Confetti Wishes collection, and added it above and under the title.

I love the summer-feeling of this layout! Go to the shop and grab some new cut files and get crafty today! 😉
