Happiness Is A Good Book|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today. I wanted to share with you my Books of 2021 Life Crafted album..more specifically. how you can incorporate cut files into your smaller projects! I have used the Book Happiness cut file in my small album

I backed my cut file with lots of fun floral papers. Once it was backed, I added some Glossy Accents to a few areas. This provides some dimension, shine, and sheen. I just love how the cut file looks and all the extra detail it gives my spread.

I kept the rest of spread came together quick and easily. I added some fussy cut florals, patterns , and sequins to finish of my spread.

I hope my spread today has inspired you to play with size and add cut files to your smaller projects like mini albums, traveler’s notebooks, and card. Visit the shop HERE . Which cut file would you choose to cut small?

Have A Lovely Day!

Hello Beautiful | Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today. I have a layout to share using the Floral Filigree file and a heritage photo.

This photo is of my great great grandmother. This cut file with it’s vintage feel was perfect for adding to my page. I used it as a background element and layered my photo, journaling and embellishments over the top.

I love how the cut file peeks around the rest of my layout. It adds a pop of color and interest. For the color, I inked up the cut file with some blending brushes and ink that matched the products I wanted to use.

I love to document these old photos and how these people are related to me and made me who I am. I hope you will give this layout a try! There are soo many cut files in the SHOP here …your sure to find the perfect one!

Have A Lovely Day!

Little Ones|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today! I am working with another of this month’s new cut files, the Pine Cone Branch cut file.

For my project this week, I wanted to use a cut file in a way that gave lots of color and dimension but no backing! I hope you will take a peek at my video to see how I cut apaprt and paper pieced my cut file. Cut files can play such a fabulous supporting role to our pages.Our photos, and even our embellishments, can benefit from a perfectly sized and placed cut file.

Happy Never Goes Out Of Style|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today to share a new layout featuring one of the brand new cut files released this month, All About The Bows Background. I paired the cut file with the More Then Words collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I decided on a simple design for my layout. I backed the cut file, added my photo (with a mat to give it some contrast against the background.) I embellished simply with some florals. For a title, I chose a sticker that had the perfect sentiment for the photo. Overall, this layout came together quickly and easily.

I have a process video to share as well featuring my whole process.

Apple Orchard Memories|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout using the Apples Sliced cut file from the shop.

I used all the pieces if the cut file, inking each one, to create “frames” to house my photos and titles.

I used coordinating Distress Oxide inks to color my apples. Once they were completely dry, I adhered them to my patterned paper background and layered up my photos and titles onto the apples.

A smattering of white sequins added the perfect finishing touch! You can grab this cut file in the SHOP along with oodles more to help you finish up your fall photos!

I also have a process video to share showing my layout process! Have A Lovely Day!

Autumn Adventures|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to share with you my latest layout.

For my layout,I wanted to mix and match a couple different cut files. I chose the Thankful Page Builder cut file (I just used the pumpkin) and the Yearly Title cut file (for the Autumn title).

I used the Autumn word and paired it with some small letter stickers from my stash to create my title.

I colored up my pumpkin and created a scene across the bottom of my page. Love how cute it turned out.

Caution-Dog Cant Control His Licker |Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Crossword Background1 cut file. I was so excited to use this cut file and play with the crossword element.

I had so much fun, playing with this cut file. I cut an offset shadow layer to place behind the file for a bit of pop and contrast. I love how the dark green contrasts with my woodgrein background.

I used my stamps for my title. Once I had the title and photo in place, I just chose a few spots for some embellishments. I didnt want to add too much on top of my cut file so I stuck to three main clusters and kept them small…with three pops for that dark green that is in the shadow layer to make everything cohesive.

Have A Lovely Day!

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.

Sweet Girl|Sara Scraps

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!

Beautiful|Sara Scraps

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-

Have A Lovely Day!
