You Are My Sunshine | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello! Sara is here today to share a fun layout with you! For this layout, I started with the photo and went stash diving for products to compliment it.


I chose the My Sunshine Title cut file for my layout.


I decided to keep my design to a nice, clean diagonal design and then spice it up with ink blending on my title and lots of circles and sparkly bits!


I love how the black really pops off the page and gives it an elegant feel! And while I used lots of different manufacturers, by letting my photo be my guide, my layout works together seamlessly!


Be sure not to miss all the fun titles in the Cut To You shop! Im sure there is something there that would be perfect for your next layout!

Here is my entire process if you would like to check it out!

Have A Lovely Day!

Awesome | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello!

I have what might be one of my very favorite layouts ever to share with you! I love to create mixed media backgrounds. I think I have a unique take on how I approach mixed media. I like a “cleaner” look with lots of texture instead of a “messy” feel. Pair this with a gorgeous cut file and “swoon”- if I do say so myself.


For today’s layout I used the Arrows Cut File . I love how it drew attention right to my photo.


After I created my background. I backed the cut file with papers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Boys Rule collection. To compliment the colors in my photo, I added some small touches of pink.


I used a stamp to guide my journaling about all the things my son is currently loving.


You can check out my whole process on my You Tube channel!

Be sure to take a peek at all the cut files in the Cut To You  shop. Which one will catch your eye to pair with our next mixed media background?

Have A Lovely Day!

We Still Do | Sara Scraps


Sara joining you today with a layout featuring one of the new release cut files –We Still Do.


I have been married for almost 21 years, and while there are many, many cut files around for weddings and new loves, there are few that are creaed to document longer relationships…so I was over the moon excited to be able to create with this file and document a photo of my husband and I.


I added some penwork detail and some sequins (I love sequins to the moon and back to add extra small details to a cut file!) to give the title a fairly prominant place on my layout. I wanted it to be easy to read and to catch your eye for sure! I usually like a cut file to take second place to my photo, but for some reason on this particular layout, I wanted the tirle/sentiment to ctch your eye first, and then move on to the photo.

I paired the quilt layout with the Yearly Title Cut File, specificlly the Summer title.

T.B.R. | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello Everyone! Its Sara, back with my second layout for the month of July! I hope you are all nice and cool as a cucumber while you read this! I’m in the US and we are having the craziest heatwave!


I’m sharing a 12X12 scrapbook layout today along with some fun tips on how you can customize your cut files to make them uniquely yours. I chose to use the brand new Book Stack Background Cut File.


I started by backing my cut file. I chose to use Pink Paislee’s Indigo and Ivy range. I love to use 6X6 paper pads to back my files. I flipped over each patterned paper and flipped the cut file. Then I used a pen (I know, you could totally use a pencil if you want to) to trace and cut each section of the books.

I chose contrasting colors to really make the cut file details pop..but I’m not done yet!

Next, I broke out a bottle of Glossy Accents. This is used a lot in scrapbooking as a wet glue BUT if you cover areas of a cut file with it, you get a lovely glossy sheen to bring your attention to parts of your cut file.IMG_1343

The last finishing touch I added was some hand stitching. Hand stitching the entire outline of a cut file always looks lovely but have you ever just chosen a section or element to stitch? I chose to stitch just the book pages for my layout. Love the added texture it created.1B2E3C2A-8C3E-4C0E-B6BC-B198A171B1C2.jpeg

I embellished the rest of my layout minimally so that the cut file, my photo, and journaling were the star of the show! Be sure to take a peek at all the cut files in the Cut to You shop. How will you customize a cut file and make it yours?

Have A Lovely Day!

You Are Unique | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello! I’m so happy to be joining the CUT to YOU team for this term and to bring you my very first project.

I chose to create using the new Butterfly Cluster cut file from the shop for my project. I love how you can use almost every part of this cut file with very little waste! Sometimes I feel quite bad tossing what appears to be most of a 12X12 cut file into the bin after I’ve cut something but this cut file wastes very little in off cuts…woohoo!

For my layout I based my colors off of this month’s inspiration board. I chose colors from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Happiness and of course, butterflies.

I used Distress Oxide to enhance the cut file and I offset the cut file so that you could see both the cut file and the shadow layer.


To see the whole process, how I altered the cut file and my reason for making some decisions on my layout, be sure to take a peek at my process video.
