CUT to YOU | Summer Vibes Cut File | Melinda Sweetman

Hey, hey scrappy friends, it’s Melinda here with you all on the CUT to YOU blog with another design team share that I hope you’ll love as much as I do!!

I’ve used the super fun “Summer Vibes” cut file today and as you can see I’ve used it in 2 different ways!!

I started this one by cutting my title from white textured card stock and used the Cocoa Vanilla Studio “Sunkissed” collection to back the letters.

For the sunshine part of this cut file I grabbed a piece of 12×12 water colour card stock and used my Cameo to sketch the design using a lead pencil exactly where I wanted the design on my background.

After that was done I grabbed 2 jars of clean water, an approx 1” flat paint brush, a round paintbrush & 3 Lindys Magical colours, x, x & x.

I first applied clean water where I wanted to drop in the colours, a small section at a time, then added in my 3 paint colours, letters the paint, water & paper work it’s magic!! I continued this until all of the sun was painted & then set it aside to air dry.

When using such a large cut file – that I really don’t want to cover up too much of especially – it really helps to make the rest of the page come together quickly!

I added in 2 small floral embellishment clusters using clear stickers straight to my background, one of the amazing things about smooth white cardstock!!

And a final small cluster, this time with puffy stickers, duplicating some of those same elements – florals – to the top right of my photo cluster where I also added in my journalling and some of the same gold glitter foam stickers that I layered over my title piece!

And that completes my layout today!! Which I, of course, also have a process video for you to watch if you’d like to see this one come together.

I hope that you have enjoyed my share today and I’ll see you again next month with another fun creation!!
Until then, happy scrapping!!
