Hello there, Bernii here with you today!!

I am here to share my with you all my latest layout that I have created again inspired by the new beginnings that Spring seems to symbolise. Now the photo that I scrapped isn’t a photo that was taken in the Spring months, however it is a photo of my daughter turning double digits and it made me think of the new beginnings she will face. To symbolise this a little more I chose a butterfly cut file to represent her change into the next stage of her life. So let me show you what I have created.

Now this particular background cut file is the Butterfly Cluster Cut n Stitch , although I only used the butterflies cut file and also decided to cut two of the  clusters so that I could have them cover most of the background from left to right.

XButterflyCluster

I love how the butterflies just seem to sit on the page delicately when backed with patterned paper and vellum. I didn’t want to embellish the layout too much as I wanted the butterflies to stand out , and to help the butterflies seem like the wings are fluttering I only added glue to the body .

I then added the ” Life Captured” title and only a smattering of embellishments from the latest CVS collection . Lastly, I just jotted down some thoughts on the moment that I captured.

Happy B’Day | Bernii Grof

Hi there,

Bernii here with you today to share with you a new Travellers Notebook spread in my beloved TN that I picked up from IKEA. I love using this size and and format to memory keep in as the pages come together faster for me and more memories get recorded. So let me show my latest spread in my TN using the TN Speech Bubble cut file.

IMG_6209

I love this cut file and originally had the idea that I would use each speech bubble with some journaling of random tidbits from the day. Instead I decided to use it as a layering piece on the left hand side of the spread and teamed it with the new Pink Fresh collection ” Just a little lovely”.

IMG_6212

I love the extra layering piece that it gives to the spread and I still managed to get some journaling completed in a few of the bubbles. I decided to decorate over the the two pages and help balance out with the acetate gold foiled ephemera .

CTYTNSpeechBubble

Is this not one of the sweetest TN cut files you have seen?  I decided  not to back the cut file as I normally would as it was just a beautiful and subtle touch.

Beautiful | Bernii Grof

Hi there , Bernii here with you today.

Today I have a new layout share for you for the CUT to YOU design team using the gorgeous ” Lotus Bud Floral cut file” . I challenged myself to use a patterned paper background, and I have to say I love the way it turned out with the soft Lotus Bud floral cut file that just compliments the paper perfectly. 

Let me show you what I have created .

IMG_6187 (1)

I used the latest Kitaholics Kit which featured Pink Paislee papers with these gorgeous soft water colour effects. To add to the softness of the layout I decided to back the Lotus Bud floral cut file with the soft pink paper.

 Overall, the Lotus Bud cut file did most of the embellishing on the page for me and I love how it turned out. Then the “Beautiful” title was the perfect sentiment to finish the layout.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have found some inspiration today here with the Lotus Bud Floral cut file. Don’t forget you can find many more beautiful designs over on the CUT to YOU website which you can check out HERE.

Blossom | Bernii Grof

Hi there everyone,

Bernii here with you today with my share of my latest layout using the gorgeous “Blossom” cut file.

With Spring just around the corner, I have been looking forward to the warmers days and the beautiful blooms that will be sprouting up everywhere. As I love the brighter colours of Spring it was a no brainer to use the gorgeous and delightfully bright Cocoa Vanilla Studio Bohemian Dream collection.  

I don’t usually use pattern papered back grounds but I am a sucker for purple and when I ended up backing the cut files , it really made them stand out when they were placed against the purple. 

IMG_6180

I also tend to mount my backed cut file onto foam tape but decided for this layout not too. The backed flowers were already standing out so didn’t need the extra help with foam tape. 

IMG_6177

I should mention also that I did cut the BLOSSOM cut file twice as I wanted two of the floral clusters to help frame the photos. If you love florals as much as I do you can check out this specific cut file HERE, or other gorgeous floral cut files HERE.

Well thank you so much for stopping by today.

Till next time, much love

Bernii xx

Dream on Dreamer | Bernii Grof

Hi there, Bernii here with you today to share a layout that I created using two beautiful cut files. I love being able to match up cut files to help build a page. Cut files are brilliant that way as they are so versatile.

So let me show you what I created overall and then I can show you the two amazing files that I used.

IMG_6117 (1)

Because of the sweet whimsical nature of the hot air balloon I used the Here Comes the Sun collection by Pretty Little studio as the paper were so soft and pretty. So let me show you the first cut file I used. The Hot Air Balloon cut file which you can find HERE is so so so pretty. I honestly could make a hundred layouts with this cut file and make them all different colours and sizes. I am not sure what it is about them but they are so magical dreamy.

IMG_6123 (1)

 

And because I do find hot air balloons so magical and dreamy I decided to use the Dream on Dreamer title cut file which you can find HERE .

Seriously it is like these two were made for each other. To help the cut file pop of the page a little , I pulled out my water colour set and just roughly painted on some pink. Another little touch of whimsy to the page.

 

IMG_6124 (1)

 Well thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope I have inspired you here with the CUT to YOU cut files and don’t forget you can check out all the beautiful designs over at the Etsy shop HERE.

Let’s Go | Bernii Grof

Hi there!! Bernii with you here today sharing with you another travellers notebook spread.

I have been loving documenting in my TN and love it when I can incorporate a cut file to add some interest. So let me show you what  I have created with the  TN Constellation Cluster Cut file.

IMG_6051

 

XTNConstellation-Cluster

This cut file can be used for so many themes and it worked perfectly with these outdoor photos that I wanted to document. I didn’t back each and every star and I like how it turned out. I think sometimes we are tempted and feel that we need to fill and back each cut, but that is not the case.

Hello Cut To You family, Bernii here with you today to share a layout using the gorgeous All Around Floral Background cut file which you can spot in the store HERE. I have even manged to create a process video which you can check out HERE over on my channel.

 

Iart love (1)

 

I just love anything floral and this cut file seemed the perfect fit for this layout featuring my daughter and her friend at an art class together. It reminded me of the flowers that the girls painted in their pictures . I cut two of these cut files out to create the layout as I wanted it to spread out towards the two corners of the layout.

XAllAroundFloral

I used an older collection from Illustrated Faith as it added the right pops of colour that I needed to help make these pictures pop.
