Hello 2020 | 12 Month Planner | Nicole Bingaman

Hey…Hi…Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here and working with this amazing crew of crafters and sharing my layouts with you all!

Today I am sharing a layout I created with the 12 Month Planner Digital Cut File. This will be the album opener for my 2020 scrapbook.

I tend to keep these simple as there is no need for journaling, and instead have fun with techniques and embellishing. When I saw the 12 Month Planner Digital Cut File in the shop I knew it would be perfect for this type of layout. The small calendar openings created mini layouts for me to focus on a photo or a little area to decorate.

I chose to go with a traditional method of using the cut file by cutting it out with white textured cardstock and then backing it with various pattern papers. I do a quick tracing in pencil of either the inside or outside of the section I want to back with paper and trim it with my detailed scissors.

I made sure to select a darker colored background paper to allow my bright die cut piece to really stand out.

I am so excited to be here and I look forward to sharing even more projects using Cut to You cut files! You can watch my entire process of putting this layout together below.
