I fell in love with the Tropical Punch cut file the minute I saw it! I have created a summer layout (of course) using a photo of me in Capri Italy and yes we had a drink just like this!
And here is my layout which I created with Crate Paper Sunny Days collection.
I used a pale pink cardstock to cut the outer of the cut file, which once attached to my page a added machine stitching to add definition. I then chose a pink and blue striped paper to paper piece the tropical punch glass/cup. I added the flowers with foam tape to add dimension.
I paper pieced the umbrella keeping it in the pink and blue hues. Adding pops of colours is important when your layout has a majority colour, so I added a bright green for the leaves, a bright yellow for the lemon and peach patterns for the fruits on a stick, I used a blue and gold patterned paper for the straws.
Again I added some elements with foam tape to continue adding dimension to my page.
I didn’t use a mat for my photo but instead placed it in amongst the printed floral border, and creating an embellishment cluster to the side of my photo.
I added my title ‘Look on the Sunny Side’ in between my photo and cut file to connect them visually.
I finished my layout off by adding embellishments that added to the tropical feel of my layout.
This cut file is a wonderful page builder for any layout. To see this and other new release cut files head over to www.cuttoyou.com.au
