Oh Snap| I love to craft|Doodle frames|by Josefine

Hello Paperlovers, Welcome to the Cut to You blog today! So happy to see you… It’s Josefine here showing you a new mixed media layout using the gorgeous title “Oh Snap” and the beautiful “Doodle Frames

First I started creating the background on the white cardstock. I applied some distress Oxide with a acrylic shape stamp that looks like a stain (or splatter) The colors that I used are “Worn Lipstick” and “Picked Raspberry” With a brush I applied a little bit water to the ink on my acrylic stamp for a more watercolor effect on my background.

When the Distress Oxide on my background is dry I stamp again with another background stamp. (look at the photo) In this way I create more dimension in my mixed media background. At the end I made some spletters with the Distress Oxide colors. I backed up my cutfile with design paper and made 3D alphas from the same design paper. I color the edges of the Alphas with distress oxide and attach them with 3D foam on the cutfile as well using some pink thread.

Now we started decorating my scrapbook page. First I placed my the Doodle Frames Cut File on my layout, which I had foiled gold using the beautiful foil from Spiegelmoms. Then I placed my title ” Oh Snap” on top of the golden frames using some 3d Foam so I can make layers under this cutfile.

I cut some design paper to size and put it behind the photo. Then I slide my Photo a litte bit under the cutfile title and decorating it further with die-cuts, cardstock stickers, word strips, acrylic shapes and puffy hearts.

With different Alphas I made my title “Oh snap I love to Craft” love how that turned out! I grab my Acrylic paints and made some splatters with some different colors like Purple, light green, pink, orange and of course white gesso! So this page looks more festive! I had a lot of fun creating this layout with the beautiful cutfiles! I hope that I have inspired you a little bit with this festive layout! Have a lovely and creative day! XoXo, Jo

Yay, Happy Birthday!|Happy Days|Josefine

Hello Paperlovers!

Welcome to the Cut to You blog today! Today I am sharing a new mixed media layout with you using the beautiful cutfile “Happy Days” A fantastic cutfile that I can use perfectly for my son’s birthday layout.

For the background I used different colors of distress oxide. I used a background stamp to make multiple impressions to create colored spots. I also used a sweet little cupcake stamp and stamped it in three different colors on the background.

Then I place the cutfile on my layout and cut some balloons from different design papers. I put these on top of the cutfile but also slid a few underneath to create a layer effect. I drew the letters for ‘happy’ on some patterned paper and vellum paper and stitched them together with green thread. This created a 3D effect when I placed it on my layout.

I cut the patterned paper to size and placed it behind the photo. With different die-cuts and stickers, I created clusters above and below the photo. I also decorated the balloons with different word strips. At the end I make splashes with all the colors on my layout for a more festive and confetti look. So it really is a birthday layout.

I cut out some circles and attached them with green thread. I placed some of the green patterned paper underneath my white cardstock background and sewed it in place with my sewing machine. I had a lot of fun making this colorful layout. I really like working with the beautiful cut files from Cut To You.
I wish you lots of fun with your creativity and these beautiful cut files and hope that I have inspired you a little with this layout.
Have a lovely day!
XoXo,
Jo

Happy 2021 “The good life”|2021|Spring Floral Banner| Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,
Welcome to the Cut To You blog today! It’s Josefine here showing you a new mixed media layout using the beautiful 2021 Cut File and the Spring Floral Banner. Yes, I used two Cut File on this scrapbook page!!

First I started with the background. I applied Distress Oxide with a acrylic stamp that looks like a stain and the ink color that I used is “Evergreen bough” With a brush I applied a little bit water to the ink on the stamp for a more watercolor effect on my layout.

When the Distress Oxide on my background is dry it’s time to started with the cutfiles. First I placed my “Spring Floral Banner” on my background and under the floral of the cutfile I placed some Flower die-cuts (see photo) from the beautiful “Daydream” collection from Cocoa Vanilla. This way I make layers with my die-cuts and cutfile.

I made four banners from the design papers of the “dayDream” collection, cut on size and stitched them with silver thread. I placed the banners on my layout with the photo on top. I also put some die-cuts and paper flowers on my page.

Now it’s time for the second cutfile. I used the 2021 cutfile as part of my title. I backed it with acetate decorated with silver dots. I edited the bottom of the 2021 title with silver glitter. After that I stitched it on my layout with silver thread and decorated with a word strip “The good life” and a paper flower. Finally I make white splashes with gesso for an extra festive look!

I hope I was able to inspire you with my layout! I wish everyone a beautiful day and enjoy creating! XoXo, Josefine

Stay Cozy | Winter Page Builder | Josefine

Hi Paper lovers!

Thanks for stopping by today! It’s Josefine here with my first scrapbook layout for the Cut to You blog. I am so excited this new year! I wish everyone a healty and fantastic year, that we can go back to normal and that we can hug each other again! With this layout I look back to the winter memories in 2010….

I made a 12×12 mixed media layout and used the beautiful Winter Page Builder Cut File. First I started with my background. I used a background stamp that already looks like a stain. With the stamp and the distress oxide ( the color I used is ” Faded Jeans” ) I stamp on the cardstock. I also spray some water on my stamp and ink for a more watercolor effect. Then I made some splashes with the distress oxide and used a brush for that.

I let my mixed media background dry by air and start editing the two snowflakes with the Nuvo glitter paste. I love those beautiful glitter, especially when they are subtle.

When everything is dry I start decorating my layout. I cut some design paper to size and place it behind the photo to create more layers. I glue the cutfile title “Winter” with tacky glue and make 3D alpha’s from design paper and vellum. In the middle I stitch it with silver thread. I attach the 3D alpha’s with 3D foam on my layout.

Between my photo I slide some die-cuts of flowers and twigs. I put an extra title on my layout ” Stay Cozy” and put a deco photo frame on the photo. Finally I make some splatters with white gesso for a real winter effect. I cut the white cardstock to size and paste a design paper behind it. I stitch the edges with my sewing machine and use blue thread. My layout is ready now!

I had a lot of fun working with this fantastic cutfile! I wish you all a lovely and creative day! XoXo, Josefine
