CUT to YOU | Filagree Butterfly cut file | Hello Sweet Girl | Melinda Sweetman

Hey and hello CUT to YOU friends!! Melinda here with you with my very first share for 2022.

Today’s layout is a little ‘different’ shall we say?! Yep, my actual page is butterfly shaped and will go into my album as is without a page protector. The gorgeous butterfly “shape” is the stunning “Filigree Butterfly” cutfile available here in the store.

This page actually came together with the “left overs” of a previous layout I created. The inside pieces (silver cardstock) is what I had left over. I cut a second butterfly using black cardstock and then stuck the actual black cut file to some black paper and then paper pieced all of the silver pieces back in and oh boy, I just ADORE how this looks!!

I’ve pulled out my “Classic Heidi” collection by Heidi Swapp and started by choosing a paper to showcase on the back of the cutfile – essentially my background pattern paper.

I added a few layers of pretty things including a doily from my stash, some alphas, some embossing and some chipboard pieces making sure everything was EXTRA stuck down knowing this is not going into a page protector.

I did record my process for you and can watch that over on my YT channel or just hit that play button below!!

I hope that you have enjoyed my share today and that I have perhaps inspired you to create an out of the page protector/uniquely shaped layout/page to include in your own scrappy albums!! There are so, so many amazing designs in the store you could choose from and I, personally, would recommend starting in the “Florals & Nature” category!!

Happy scrapping, until next time!
Melinda
