Hi Friends! Today, I am creating with the gorgeous Geo Floral Leaves Cut File combined with some of the amazing new foils from SpiegelMom Scraps that we are creating with this month. I am absolutely in love with how easy these foils are to use with cut files and this floral one is perfect for a layout about my sister’s bridal shower!

I started off with a white cardstock background and added some inking around the edges of the paper. I then chose a bunch of different coordinating 6×8 pattered papers that I wanted to use to create an oversized photo mat. I did just a touch of mixed media by adding some stamping as well as some splatters on my background.

I then went ahead and added some lace trim under my photo that could serve as a little shelf for my title die cut word. Then, it was finally time to add my gorgeous foiled cut files. I cut them in a couple of different sizes so that I could tuck them in to different areas AND so that I could maximize my foil usage. For the largest leaf, I thought that it would be fun to cut it in both white and metallic so that I could glue them together slightly offset in order to create a layered, dimensional look…almost like a shadow!

I hope that you enjoyed my version of the geo floral cut files paired up with the gorgeous Fab foils. I really think that they created a fun look with a little more glamorous feel to match my photo!

Happy New Year | Khristina Sorge

Hello Friends!

Today, I wanted to create something a little bit different…I love using cut files in various sizes all combined on the same layout so I decided to share a little about that today. The shapes on this layout started as the Gems cut file but I decided that I wanted them to be stars instead so with just a little cutting, I was able to completely change the shapes!

By cutting these cut file circles in a few different sizes, it allowed me to create a really fun and varied diagonal foundation for my layout. I then backed them with a variety of gorgeous patterned papers to really create a bright and bold design. Just like with my project earlier this month, I paired up the white cut files with a darker patterned paper background because I just love how that seems to make everything really pop.

Once I had my cut files all cut in different sizes, I used my scissors to trim away the outside edge leaving me with a bunch of different shapes of stars. This was perfect for my photo of my son being a sparklers expert for the new year. I then simply set to work creating layers with a bunch of patterned papers, tickets, labels, and pieces of ephemera.

I created a fun layered title using some foam adhesive strips and then added just a touch of journaling peeking out from my patterned paper layers. For finishing touches, I added a few burlap stars, puffy stars, and enamel dots. Then, I simply used a few gold ink splatters to tie the look together. Easy peasy!

I hope that you enjoyed seeing how easy it was to alter this set of cut file gems to get a whole different look instead. I want to challenge you to pair up cut files with some dark patterned paper for a fun and bold look this month!

Hi friends! I am super excited to be sharing my very first design team project with everyone today. I wanted to create a quick and easy impactful layout and one of my favorite ways to do that is with a darker background paired with the contrast of a bright white cut file.

This cut file is just perfect for tucking in behind your layers and I love how it mimicked the look of the floral crown in my photo. It also helped this layout come together SO fast even though it packs a punch!

Here’s the Floral Edge set cut file that I used today…..Isn’t it just gorgeous?!?!

I have a process video to share with you today as well talking thru how this one came together.

I can’t wait to see you guys try this idea of a dark background with a white cut file as a way to create a unique look! Here’s a couple of close-ups of my layout….

Thanks so much for stopping by!
