Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today featuring a very special cut file for a very special layout. I chose the Floral Ampersand cut file and made it extra special with vellum and stitching.
I paired my cut file with Cocoa Vanilla’s Unforgettable collection. I thought that the tones in the collection would work so well with this adorable photo of my brother and my niece
I enhanced this already beautiful cut file by backing the flowers with patterned papers. Then I hand stitched using coordinating embroidery thread colors for extra texture and interest. Finally I backed the entire ampersand with vellum for a lovely frosted effect.
If you haven’t gotten it yet, this cut file is a lovely addition. Just by changing colors or patterns, this cut file works for a ton of themes!
You can take a peek at all the details ( and my trick for getting perfect placement in my process video here!

Happy Monday Creative Peeps! Sara with you today with a fun TN spread featuring the new Chit Chat cut file.
I decided to document the text messages my sister and I send to each other. I wanted my spread to have high contrast and be colorful. To achieve this look, I cut the file in black, and then backed the different elements with lots of bright, fun patterns.
I added some white pen details and some fun phrase stickers to give my spread a fun, snarky feel…cause thats me and my sister texting each other.
I have a fun process video to share as well decribing my whole process.
Be sure to head over to the shop HERE and check out all the great cut files!
Hello Creatives! Sara here today with a brand new layout featuring the My Kind of Messy cut file.
To make my cut file really POP! , I first cut it in black cardstock and then splattered it like crazy with white acrylic paint. It gave the cut file a ton of interest and the black added a lot of contrast to my layout.
By pairing my cut file with a “pre-printed” watercolor background paper and keeping the embellishments simple and geometric, this layout came together quick as a wink!
Good Morning Lovely Crafters! Sara here with you today sharing a new layout! This layout is very special. It uses both a brand new cut file from Cut To You and the January 15th inspiration from CSI Challenge Blog
From the Case File I took the Color Inspiration and the book pages…so I created a mixed media background and inked up the cut file, backing it with vellum to give it a soft feel!
Curious about the cut file? Its one of the new January releases called Floral Edge and you can find it RIGHT HERE
I love how coloring up this image made it coordinate perfectly with my fall photos!
And I have a process video to share with you showing exactly how I did it!
Hello Creative Friends! Sara with you today to share my first layout of the decade and of the new design team term. Huge shout out to Gwen for letting me stay on! But enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff!
I decided to share with you a layout idea for those who may scrapbook in multiple sizes. I am guilty of this..I scrapbook in all.the.sizes! I cut my chosen cut file in a 12X12 size and then created an 81/2X11 layout. I used the Leaf Sprigs cut file and then I trimmed it as I created the layout- yep, you can totally cut up your files!
Backing the cut file with one patterned paper was an easy way to provide color and to help me to create a customized background for my layout.
I paired the cut file with lots of embellishments from the Unforgettable collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I love how my layout turned out and a great way to showcase how to use a cut file for any size project!
You can see more details in my You Tube process video-
Hello! Sara with you today with a fun fall layout featuring an older cut file- Heart Lovers Unite . If you are new to Cut To You files, this one should REALLY be a part of your collection! It is versatile and can be used in soo many ways. The possibilities are endless.
For my layout, I chose to use an inlay technique for my layout. I hand painted each heart using Shimmerz acrylic paint or Distress Oxide ink in Vintage Photo. I then added some black splatter for a little extra detail.
Once the background was finished, the layout came together easily with some coordinating embellishments and paper.
You can grab the cute cut file in the SHOP here. And I have a process video showing all the details here-
