Oh Happy Days | Autumn Leaf |Josefine vd Hoeven

Hello Paperlovers, Welcome to the Cut to You blog today! It’s Josefine here sharing with you a new scrapbook layout that I made using these beautiful cut files. This month it’s all about celebrating the 3rd birthday of Cut to You.

So happy to be part of this celebration by scrap lifting one of Gwen Wruck’s gorgeous layouts! Gwen is an amazing designer and I am in love with the beautiful cut files she designs! For this scrap lift, I chose the layout below by Gwen. I love the colors and the design she used.

For this scrap lift I used the beautiful cut files “Autumn leaf” and ” Choose Happy” I cut these cut files with my electric cutting machine. and

I grab a white sheet of cardstock. I start by mixing distress oxide with water and stamp serval prints on my white cardstock. I used a random background stamp that already looks like a stain. When I’am done stamping I splatter with the same color (Victorian Velvet) on the stamped background.

I backed the “Autumn leaf” cute file with design paper. I used the beautiful “Dream” collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I placed the cut file on top of the mixed media background.

I cut design paper to size and put it behind the photo. I placed the photo on top of the cute file “Autumn leaf”. I’m looking for the right wordstrips, labels, buttons and die-cuts for decoration. For the title, I used the “Choose Happy” cut file. I colored it with distress oxide “Victorian Velvet”. I stitched the letters to the layout with gold sewing thread.

Finally, I splashed with white acrylic paint and black acrylic ink for a festive look. I really love how this layout turned out! Thanks so much Gwen for this beautiful inspiration.
I want to thank you for visiting the cut to you blog today and hope I was able to inspire you with this scrapbook lift.
