Grateful Heart | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans! Kirei here with a new layout using this fab Beaded Circle cut file which you can find here in the shop. I wanted to use it as a central focus and then add my clusters to the top and bottom so you can still see the pretty cut file.

I teamed the cut file up with the lovely Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘These Days’ collection which was just perfect with my photos and the message I wanted to say.

I coloured the Beaded Circle cut file using Distress Oxides blending them in one to the other. Once I was happy I then painted over it with a super sparkly clear ink which doesn’t show up that well in the photos but it has the prettiest glittery look to it!

I added two small square photos to the top left that I had mounted onto white tissue paper which just added a soft layer between the photo and background.

Then I built up a cluster around the photos using the coordinating ephemera, puffy stickers and gold glitter hearts. I added some matching sequins from my stash to add more sparkle!

Then I created another cluster to the bottom with the matching embellishments and a title using the foam title stickers.
