Magical Memories | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans! Kirei here with my second layout for the month featuring an older cut file called Squares Cubed that can be found here in the shop. It’s one I have wanted to use for a while so decided it was perfect to go with my Disney photo and the Simple Stories ‘Say Cheese Main Street’ collection.

After using a black cut file on my last layout I decided to try cutting this one from patterned paper rather than just white cardstock. I cut out 9 of the different square designs (but did end up using only 8) from a black and white spotted paper.

Then I backed them all with different coloured patterned papers from the same collection. Some were raised up on foam pads and some were stuck directly to the cut file so that I got different levels of dimension onto the layout.

It was all quite bold but as my photo is bright and was in traditional 6″x 4″ size (rather than the smaller 3″ x 4″ that I often use) I decided it worked well!

For my layout background I cut a sheet of white cardstock down to 11 1/2″ square, stuck it to a frame of black card and then stitched around the edges in bright yellow thread.

I placed my backed cut file squares onto the layout along with my backed photo and once I was happy with the placement I stuck them all down.

Then I added embellishment clusters above and below the photo all using ephemera and stickers from the same collection.

To finish off I added a coordinating Thickers title, lots of enamel dots and my journaling.
