CUT to YOU | You Make My Heart Sing | Heart of Flowers Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. It’s July and it means that CUT to YOU is celebrating its 3rd birthday! Hip-Hip-Hooray! 🙂 I am so happy to be part of this celebration by scraplifting one of Gwen Wruck’s layouts. Gwen is the dreamer and founder of CUT to YOU, whose cut files you can use for any project, they are so versatile and easy to use.

For the scraplift I chose a layout from Gwen’s You Tube channel, she is doing such an amazing job there too! For example she is making some stash busting videos, in this one she uses the Marigold collection of Maggie Holmes. I really love the colours on this layout, the soft light blue background paired with the darker green shades of the bows – it is beyond gorgeous. Her signature stitching on the photo and on the edges give the whole layout a special final touch. You can find the Delightful Day layout on her Instagram as well, and the processing video on her YT channel.

And here is my scraplift:

For the layouts we used the Heart of Flowers cut file:

First I’ve chosen a photo of my daughter on a photo seccion 4 years ago. She enjoyed the shooting so much, we got awesome photos, like this one. I used 4″x6″ photom just like Gwen, which was a little unusal for me because I like to use 3″x4″ photos on my layouts.

As the photo has some softer shades I wanted to reflect on that on my layout. I decided to use a darker background and replaced the bows with light coloured butterflies.

For the layout I used the More Than Words collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio, the background paper is the Collage paper. I backed the cut file with some pieces of the Effervescent paper, it has beautiful shades of many different colours. I chose blue for the leaves and blush/yellow/orange for the flowers.

I matted my photo with some patterned papers, and started to arrange my layout. I put the photo on the right because she is turning on the photo to the left.

I fussy cut some butterflies from Gossamer paper, and added them to my layout. For my title I used a chipboard of the More Than Words collection, and put it down in the middle where the two strings meet.

I also added some cut outs, phrase stickers and a chipboard element to decorate the page, and as my journalling. For the final touches I added some enamel dots and hearts.

I really love how this layout turned out – thanks Gwen for the inspiration!
I hope you like it too! If so, go to the CUT to YOU shop and grab some new cut files and get creative this weekend! 😉
