Noughts and Crosses | Ali Skifton

Love is the air! It is Ali here with you today sharing a Valentine’s Day layout using the Noughts and Crosses cut file.

I had so much fun creating with this cut file, I just love how it turned out! I used a heavier white cardstock paper to cut the file out of so I could sew on my grid with black thread. I backed filled the hearts with photos of my husband and me celebrating Valentine’s Day last year at a cute little diner. I used Elle’s Studio, Love you collection to fill out the x’s and o’s. I embellished the cut file with stickers from Elle’s Studio and a cute little pink bow on the bottom o.

To create the background I used Tim Holtz inks to match the papers and splotched the background with a sticker package wrapper. I then splatted some of the same color ink onto my background.

For the sides of my layout I took multiple different papers from my 6 x 8 paper pack and tore them into little strips. I roughed them up with my scissors and over lapped my patterns to create the side borders.

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day! Have fun creating!

Love, Ali xoxo
