Back To School/Sara Scraps

Helllo Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a school layout! I just love the Back To School cut file. I’ve had it cut and waiting for me to use in my stash and I decided today is the day!

I backed the cut file with patterned paper and paired it with a fun mixed media background to give oodles of texture and some pops of color!

I think this was the perfect cut file for a fun boy page! Be sure to head over to the shop and check out all the cut files in the Boy Zone section for lots of inspiration for your next project.

Love Captured | Sara Scraps

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!

And be sure to take a peek at all the beutiful cut files in the shop!

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.

Hooray | Sara Scraps

Hello Creatives! Sara here today with a brand new layout featuring the My Kind of Messy cut file.

85F9F438-7BCF-4C9F-A291-BCE351DA4A81

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.

30E24AC4-3488-4E55-8389-813AFD9192BA

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!

You can see my whole process right here.

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!

Bloom Little One/Sara Scraps

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!

IMG_5278

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!

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 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.

8ADC92B2-0E21-4FB3-B701-5965488C963C

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!
