Eat Dessert First|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing my newest layout featuring the beautiful new Sundae cut file.

I had so much fun with this file. I backed the file so that the ice cream looked like it was sitting in a frosted glass dish. And I backed the cherry with some tissue paper and I used the negative of the cut fle to create a fun pink drop shadow behind the sundae.

I just love how fun this layout came together. Perfect for documenting dessert on my first trip to a restaurant since 2019!

You can see all the details in my video below. And be sure to head over to the SHOP and grab this adorable cut file.

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Rose Garden Frame cut file.

I decided to have a play with my cut file this week. I didnt just back it. I decided to add ink and Nuvo Drops to the centers to pop up the demension and interest. I also backed part of the cut files with vellum for added interest. And then popped the whole thing up with foam tape.

Sometimes I like to keep my cut files simple and sometimes I like to have a play with them and add extra dimension and detail. It’s part of the reason that I love cutfiles,you can keep them simple or add lots of details- the choice is yours.This was one I really wanted to play with.

I added a bit of mixed media to my background and kept the design fairly simple so the photo and cut file pop! I have a process video showing all of the details and design choices. You can head over to my channel and check it out!

Which cut file do you think would be amazing with some added depth and dimension? Head over to the SHOP and take a peek!

Have A Lovely Day!

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Vintage Pram cut file. I paired the file with a vintage photo of my grandmother (circa 1930)

I chose a color palette of kraft/white and soft peaches, pinks…with a pop of dark green for contrast. I love how these colors set off my photo and the cut file.

My photo is not the best quality. I digitized the original and cleaned it up..but let’s face it…the photo is 91 years old. printing it small helped and adding the large cut file and creating a layout with a vintage mood helped to enhance the photo.

I kept the title small. This layout will be in my heritage pages of my grandmother’s similar baby photos so it will flow seamlessly in the book. Overall, this cut file was perfect for this heritage photo! Do you have heritage photos to scrap?? I recommend heading over to the SHOP and grabbing some files!

You can see all the details and a bit of a chat over on my channel today-

Grand Master In Training|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today! I am sharing a layout featuring some of the brand new cut files in the shop!

Two things I love in my cut files- when they fill a need in the scrapbooking industry AND when they make striking layouts come together easy!

In our house chess is all. the.rage. And I have a lot of chess photos and chess milestones to document. So I was super duper excited when Gwen designed some amazing chess cut files for the SHOP this month!

I used both the Chess Board and the Grand Master In Training cut files to document the first time my youngest son beat his dad at chess. And I have a process video for you as well!

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today sharing my newest project featuring the Dragon Fly cut file!

I have been documenting some of our summer adventues in mini books I made including this one, all about our day at the local botanical gardens. I love to incorporate oversized cut files into my mini books! They are so striking used that way! I added beautiful ink blended wings, and backed the body with black cardstock. I added some clear glossy Nuvo drops as an accent.

I create a stamped background for my dragonfly and embellished with a few fussy cut floral elements to keep the design elegant and simple.

I love this fun,saturated, summery colors and that dragonfly is so striking!

Be sure to head over to the SHOP and check out all the summery cut files! For all the details, you can take a peek at my process video-

Fun+Sun|Sara Scraps

Good Morning! Sara with you today! This week I’m scraplifting our amazing owner-Gwen! I used the brand new awesome cut file Fun+Sun in the SHOP.

I kept this layout simple- just backed the cut file with some of my favorite patterned paper and popped it up with some foam tape.

I took my time and enjoyed my products, creating clusters around the cut file to document my son, who is growing up WAY too fast!

You can see all the details of my layout as well as the layout I scraplifted in my You Tube video!

Sunshine On My Mind| Sara Scraps

Hello Everone! Sara here with you today. I have a new layout to share featuing the Stitch Geo Heart Cut File. I used the cut file in a different way to acheive a unique look to the file.

I used the main part of the file as a stencil, traced the stitch marks, then “drew ” the stitch marks using Nuvo Drops. I inked up the outline of the cutfile to create my background.

I used the Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio to embellish my layout and I used a cut apart card as my title. With the cut file background adding texture and color, this layout came together quickly and is perfect for summer photos.

You can see all the details and the whole process showing how I created my layout in the video below. What other cut file from the SHOP would be fun to alter? Let me know in the comments below!

Keep On The Sunny Side|Sara Scraps

Hello! Sara with you today to share a summer layout with my favorite summer colors- Blue (like the sky),yellow (like the sun), and a pop of gorgeous white to pull it all together! I used the lovely Hexagon Frame cut file.

I cut the file on one sheet of white cardstock starting by filling the page with the cut file and then sizing another one to just inside the first until I had five circles nestled inside each other.

Once I had them all cut..I created my background by adhereing them to a dark patterned paper. This lets the white cut files pop!

I love how the cut file design allows me to showcase my title and my photos. I added beautiful clusters of summer florals in my colors of blues and yellows.

I love how florals and colors pop off the white cut file.

I have a process video to share with you that shows how I put this layout all together.

Be sure to head over to the shop HERE and check out all the latest designs! And try this technique and see how you can stretch your cut files today!

Have A Lovely Day!

Smiles All Around|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today. I have a brand new layout to share featuring the Snap Shot cut file from the SHOP!

I started my project by backing the cut file with lots of pretty foil papers. I left some of the cut file empty to allow my yellow background paper to pop through and provide some extra color.

I popped the cut file up on foam tape. I just love the effect of giving cut files a little pop for added shadows and dimension.

I backed my photo with a contrasting patterned paper and then added some ephemera clusters around my photo so that it doesn’t get lost on the colorful background.

You can check out all the details over on my channel.

Have A Lovely Day!
