Happy Times | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans, I can’t believe that today I am sat here with the heating on yet just over three weeks ago we were walking on a beach in Norfolk in flip flops and short sleeves…. as I live in the UK and are now into autumn it’s no surprise really!

Anyway I’m here with a layout using one of the older cut files that I have had cut just waiting to use… it’s called ‘Scallop Banners’ and can be found here in the shop. I thought they would be perfect with the lovely new Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘Daydream’ collection so painted twelve of them in different shimmery paints to match the collection.

I created my background with a patterned paper that I stuck down to another piece of coordinating patterned paper that I had gutted to make a frame. I distressed the edges and made a few tears on each side that I then folded back, this just creates some added texture which I like. I then stitched the painted cut files to the patterned background paper with gold thread.

As I do like to create dimension on my layouts I curled up the edges of each scalloped banner and I really like how this looks!

I added a photo that I had mounted onto three different patterned papers, again distressing the edges….

I added three embellishment clusters to the left and top right of my photo, and the third below my title.

To finish off I added a title and my journaling just beneath the photo.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Pop on over to the CUT to YOU shop to see more of the fab cut files along with the new October releases! Don’t forget that you get a free cut file every month if you sign up to the newsletter and you can do that here.

Happy Scrapping!
