Hi CUT to YOU fans! For my latest layout I’m using the ‘Stars Squared’ cut file that can be found in the shop here. I had a cute photo of my nephew that I wanted to use so matched it up with some bright papers from the Simple Stories ‘Homegrown’ collection.
I started by flicking lots of paint splatters onto my white cardstock background making sure they were in the general shape of the cut file. Once it was dry I trimmed two sides of the white cardstock and added a red patterned paper border
Then I backed the cut file with a mix of the bright patterned papers in red, green, blue and yellow.
Before sticking down the cut file I stuck my square photo directly to the white cardstock background.
Then I attached the cut file raising it using sticky foam pads.
I decided it didn’t really need too many embellishments as didn’t want to cover up the cut file too much so just used some Bramble Fox Perspextive stars and Doodlebug Enamel stars from my stash.
I finished off with a title and some journaling.
