CUT to YOU | Summer Vibes | Summer Vibes Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. I don’t know how you feel, but I am longing sooo much for summer! I love sunshine, swimming and bathing, having fun and freedom, so I chose a photo from last summer. We’d just got a new beach mattress, a flamingo, which is sooo big, that my daughter can lie on it. 🙂

For my layout I chose the Summer Vibes cut file, which I cut from white cardstock and started to back it with the Sunkissed collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. This collection is perfect for all those summer memories, it has beautiful bright colours. The Summer Vibes cut file has 2 parts, so you can use them also apart.

I only put some small drops of glue on the sun cut file from the Summer Vibes cut file, because I wanted to hand-stich it. First I punched out the holes, than I stitched it with the different yellow threads.

Then I backed the words: I chose pink for the word summer to refer to the flamingo on the photo, and the ombre blue for the word vibes, to refer on the water on the photo.

Then came the fun part: I had to arrange everything on my white cardstock. I cut a one inch stripe from the Good Vibrations patterned paper and glued it on the link side. I glued the two parts of the Summer Vibes cut file in the middle of the layout, but I moved the words a little bit to the right and the sun to the left. I put the photo on the left side of the cut files.

Then I started to decorate my page. I used some die cuts and also used my Sizzix and made some hibiscus flowers and palm leaves with some dies from my stash. I also added one brush stripe clear sticker and two wood buttons.

I just love how happy, how good vibes this layout has! Can’t wait for summer! 😀
