HAPPY HALLOWEEN | TARRAH MCLEAN

Hi everyone! I love a good dress up and I love documenting Halloween! Today I wanted to challenge myself to use a cut file from CUT to YOU that is versatile for many themed projects and not necessarily Halloween themed.

I chose the awesome Star Light, Star Bright cut file design and cut it out from black patterned paper. I love how the contrast of the black cut file looks against the colours in the background patterned paper I chose.

I really like the look of this cut file being see through to the background paper so I decided to just back a few spots with paper to bring in another colour on the page. I haved used the Hey Pumpkin collection by Crate Paper for this layout.

Because this cut file design has 2 holes in the top and bottom, I took the opportunity to add my photo in the space at the bottom and placed a title piece and some embellishments in the top space to balance the top and bottom with each other. Cut files like this are great for helping you to decide how the page will look! Some of the guess work is decided for you! Love that!

I layered 2 patterned papers and a tag underneath my photo and also placed a chipboard frame over the photo. I also added a Charm’s Creations handmade fabric star to the left of my photo. I added 2 small puffy stickers on top of the star. I added another cluster of embellishments including a chipboard title, a flair button and a fussy cut phrase between the top and bottom clusters as I felt like there was a big space of nothing in the middle.

I love how my spooky page turned out, I hope I have inspired you to try a CUT to YOU cut file for a different themed page than what the design was intended for?!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy creating!
