Hello Cut to You friends! Erica here and I am super excited to be guest designer this month and share what I created using the beautiful Cut to You files! Today I am sharing a 12×12 scrapbook layout using the Love Our Crazy Life cut file!

I backed the cut file using some pocket page cards from a recent Hip Kit. I really loved the colors in the 3×4 cards they were perfect to back all the letters in the cut file. Once all my letters were backed I used some thin foam strips from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and popped up the cut file. These thin strips worked really well around the heart part of the cut file.

I trimmed down a piece of white cardstock to 11.50×11.50 and distressed the edgges with the edge of my scissors. I wanted to add a pop of color to my background and just have peek out around the heart so I pulled out some Shimmerz Inklings in the color Precious Posey. Once the background was dry I matted the white cardstock to a piece of pattern paper from the January Hip Kit.

My photo is printed out in black and white and is from our most recent family photos. I love that everyone is smiling and laughing and baby Liam is trying to take off from my lap! He is always on the go and trying to run off and do his own thing! I used some big floral clusters to embellish around the heart cut file and added a few puffy dots from the Hip Kit.

I love how this turned out with the soft colors and the splatter of color behind the cut file. Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today and I hope you enjoyed this layout! If you would like to see the process you can head on over to my YouTube channel HERE. Have a wonderful day everyone!
