Sweet Treats|Sara

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to share my newest layout for Cut To You. My project today features the Sweets cut file.

I recently discovered a scrapbook album from 2015 that I didn’t finish! I think I went to a crop and added the photos into the page protector to work on, never got to these photos, and then forgot about them. Have you ever done that?

One of the photos was this one of my son and nephews eyeing up the candy at the farmer’s market. I love how big their eyes are. I paired my photo with the Sweets cut file which i thought worked perfectly.

I backed the title piece with two different solid patterns from the collection I used. Then I backed all the candy pieces with a rainbow of color. I cut extra candy pieces so that I had a nice assortment of candy in different colors and sizes to create my clusters with.

Once I had the candy backed with paper, I filled in the “candy” parts of the cut file with Glossy Accents. This gave my candy the shiny look of candy as well as some candy texture and dimension. I always try to add those two things, texture and dimension to my cut files. This keeps them from looking flat on a page and gives them more interest.

I paired each candy cluster with a few embellishments , keeping the embellishments simple so they didnt overwhelm the candy. For each cluster, I added foam tape to the candy piece I want ed to be the focus and then tucked in other embellishments around it.

I chose a vertical design for my layout, keeping everything in a column down the center of my page.

I’d love to know what you think of my layout today! Leave a comment down below if you enjoyed it! And be sure to head over to the SHOP and grab this fun cut file!

Day At The Park|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today. I have a fun, summery layout to share with you today featuring the Ferris Wheel cut file and a few photos from our favorite local amusement park .

For the middle of my cut file I made a “sequin sandwich” and then backed the cut file with patterned paper. I also backed the gondalas and the bottom of the ferris wheel with patterned paper too.

I used the natural circle design of the ferris wheel to help mw place my three photos and out tickets from the day.

I love how fun and summery my finished layout is. I just love being able to revisit some of our fun days from last summer as I look forward to another summer and fun days to come.

Be sure to check out all the fun Magical May cut files we have coming to you this month. You can see all the cut files in the shop HERE and be sure to take a peek at my process video below.

Family Is Furever|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today. I have a new layout to share featuring two different Cut To You files, TN Geo Heart and Family Is Forever

I used some easy mixed media to create my base for my page. I backed my cut files and then I wanted to alter my title a bit. Family Is Forever wasnt quite the title I was going for on this page with my furbabies.

By stamping one little u onto one of the hearts..I changed my o to a u and now my title works perfectly!

I only used a few stash supplies on my page- I really let the cut files and my photo shine!

You can check out my whole process over on my channel today!

Hello Love |Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today. I am sharing a new layout with you featuring the Butterfly Cluster Cut n Stitch cut file .

I chose to use the stitching portion of this layout to create my project today..which means I still have a butterfly cluster for a second project! This cut file is one of my all-time favorites! It is one I have used multiple times and I still love it!

I love how the butterflies appear to be flying right out of my photo! And the hand stitching adds a very pretty detail!

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?

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!

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!
