No Bad Hair Days | Tamara Buckler

Hello scrappy friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing my first layout for August, can you even believe it!? I have used the No Bad Hair Days cut file for this page, and I think it turned out so sweet!

This cut file is just perfect for my life as my older daughter is an apprentice hairdresser, and my youngest is her ever willing Guinea pig! Hence lots of hair photos!

I cut both the file from white cardstock and the background from patterned paper with my silhouette. I am loving this method of backing cut files atm, as it quick and fuss free. Great for this busy time of year!

I actually cut the scissor portion of the file from the same paper, but used a Posca pen and some washi tape to alter it and make them more ‘scissorlike’.

I popped the whole thing up on foam and adhered it off to the left of my page, which allowed me to pop my photos in on the right. I think a portrait 6×4 would have worked best here, but I didn’t have that on hand, so improvised by adding the smaller duplicate photo.

I carefully tucked some embellishments across the page, keeping in line with the very vertical layout design that we ended up with. And that was it! With all the work done in the cut file, things come together so quickly!

Thanks so much for stopping by, make sure you jump over to the shop to check out all the new releases!

See you again next time. Big Loves, Tam xo

Make Waves Layout | Make Waves Cutfile | NenaScrap

Hi CUT to YOU friends,

It’s NenaScrap with you today, thanks for joining me to discover a new layout I made with the gorgeous Make Waves Cutfile.

I started my layout by creating a mixed media background with the 1st row of waves.
I isolated these waves in my Cameo Silhouette software and copied them several times and then cut them out of white cardstock. I got a stencil on one side with the wave silhouette and the white cardstock wave cutouts on the other side.

With a blending tool and the Distress Oxides Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch, I used my stencil as a background.
On the wave patterns, I added the wave cutouts in white cardstock. This gives a relief that almost looks like sea foam.

I splashed Gesso and ink on the background then added the rest of my elements.

I matted the word “Make” with patterned paper and added Distress Oxide Blueprint Sketch on “waves” to make it stand out.

I used the Summer Stories collection by Mintopia.

I hope you enjoyed this page. Join me on YouTube to discover the video process.

Check out the CUT TO YOU website, you’ll find lots of great cut files for your projects.

I can’t wait to share some new crafting ideas with you.

Have a happy crafty day.

Hugs & kisses from France.

Get Messy | Tamara Buckler

Hello scrappy friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing a fun and bright layout using the awesome ‘Get Messy’ cut file. This file is perfect for scrappy retreat photos like these ones, and I’m so happy that I got to document my wonderful friends Gwen and Karen.

I literally got my hands messy with this one, creating a mixed media background. I pulled the colours for my background from the patterned paper I backed my file with.

I used my silhouette to cut the outline of the file from Kraft paper, and the background patterned paper. This is seriously the quickest way to back a file, no fussy cutting required!

Because of my busy background, I decided to outline the file using a white Rolla pen, and then popped the whole thing up on foam tape.

I tucked my photos and embellishments in and around the Cut File, and I really love how the focal point of the layout is very cohesive.

Thanks so much for stopping by again today. Enjoy your create time, and make sure you check out the shop for our new releases.

Beach Life Layout | Beach Life Cutfile | NenaScrap

Hi CUT to YOU friends,

Thanks for joining me today. I’m happy to share with you this new shaker layout I made with the beautiful Beach Life cutfile.

I cut the Beach Life cutfile with my Cameo Silhouette out of white cardstock several times (6 times I think). I glued each cutout to each other to create the thickness needed for a shaker box.
I added a piece of acetate to the balloon and umbrella and then the sequins mix and then acetate again to close the shaker box.

I love to integrate shaker boxes in my creations and doing it with cutfiles is a lovely way, don’t you think ?

Once I finished my cutfile shaker box, I chose the Summer Stories collection by Mintopia, a Spanish scrapbooking brand, to make my layout.

To complete this Beach Life cutfile, I couldn’t think of a better photo of my daughter playing in the sand a few years ago.

I added some embellishments but the star of this layout is definitely that cutfile shaker!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you like this layout and that it inspires you. Check out the CUT TO YOU website, you’ll find lots of great cut files for your projects.

I can’t wait to share some new crafting ideas with you.

Have a happy crafty day.

We are Paper Lovers | Tamara Buckler

Hey hey CTY peeps,

It’s so crazy how fast the months are rolling by! I’m back again today for my first share for July! WTH!

I went all out with colour on this layout, because I’m scrapping some very colourful ladies at retreat! Definitely paper lovers, just like the cut file says!

I started my page by cutting my file out of some minty green glitter cardstock. I then used the silhouette software to help me cut out the floral paper I’ve backed that with, this step seriously makes backing files so easy!!

I added little spots of glue all around the file, and then lined it up over the floral paper, so that the edges matched perfectly. I added some foam tape behind the whole thing and popped it on to my page.

I placed the cut file to right of my page so that I was able to tuck my photos to the left. I sprinkled a few little embellishments clusters at round page, making sure not to go too overboard, the cut file really is the star here!

Thanks again for stopping by. Make you pop over to the shop to check out the latest releases!

Big Loves,

CHIT CHAT | Crystal Barrett

Hello CUT to YOU friends!!!

I am super excited about today’s cut file Chit Chat. This is really a cut file bundle you get 4 different cut files in one. On this layout I use three out of the four. This cut file is perfect for all those screenshots that we all take.

I started with phone and I wanted to make sure that my photos would fit. I measured the size of my photos. In the Cricut Design Space made a rectangle that was the exact dimensions of my photos and then played with the size of the phones.

I cut out the CHIT CHAT and backed it with patterned paper for my title.

The third piece that I used was the speech bubbles. I used them as a background element behind my photos and I cut them out in the same pattern paper that I used to back my title. What was so fun about the speech bubbles is that I was able to use the positive and negative of the cut file and now I have extra embellishments to go with the collection.

You can watch the entire process on YouTube.

Remember to wear your crown!

We Are Paper Lovers Layout | We Are Paper Lovers Cutfile | NenaScrap

Hi Cut to You friends,

It’s NenaScrap here, thanks for joining me today ! I’m happy to share with you a new layout about paper lovers. Are there any paper (and cutfile) lovers here?

If the answer is yes, you will love this We Are Paper Lovers cutfile.

I cut my cutfile out of white cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and chose Paige Evans’ Whimsical collection for my layout.

This collection matched perfectly with the We Are Paper Lovers cutfile and my photo. This is a photo of my best friend and I at the big French scrapbooking show, Version Scrap.
Before the pandemic, we used to go together every year.

I matted my cutfile with several papers from Whimsical and to make it stand out, I added some 3D foam. I wanted it to stand out from the background since it was a printed paper

I added around my We Are Paper Lovers title embellishments from the Whimsical collection by choosing those related to crafting.

How do you like this scissor? Isn’t it fabulous? I love it!!!!

I really had fun creating this layout with the We Are Paper Lovers cutfile and I love how it turned out.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you like this layout and that it inspires you. Check out the CUT TO YOU website, you’ll find lots of great cut files for your projects.

I can’t wait to share some new crafting ideas with you.

Have a happy crafty day.

Chase that Dream | Tamara Buckler

Hi there folks,

I’m up on the blog again today sharing another fun, bright and sunshiny layout. I love the combo of baby blue and yellow, and combined with those daisies, this page take me straight back to being a teenager in the 90’s!

I have used the Chase that Dream cut file to document my daughter working hard to reach hers. I backed the cut file with a single piece of the daisy patterned and popped it up on foam tape.

I placed the file to the bottom right of the page and tucked my photos under the top left. By doing this, it set up the page to have a diagonal flow, so I focussed my embellishments to the top left and bottom right.

I love how sweet this file looks with this patterned paper. It’s so fun and youthful! I also love that big cut file titles like this one makes it really easy to create a feature on our pages, it does so much of the work for us!!

Thanks again for stopping by. Make sure you pop by the Cut to You HQ so you get the heads up on all the new releases that come out almost every month!

Big Loves, Tam xo

Happy friends|Happy as can be | Crystal Barrett

Hello CUT to YOU friends!!!

Today I wanted to talk titles! I feel like most pages need a title. It is the beginning of your journaling and documenting your memories! CUT to YOU has so many titles for you to pick from. I am using the Happy As Can Be cut file to start my title!

One of the things I love about cut files is that you can make them work to fit whatever size your paper needs.

For this layout I wanted it to be about half of my page do I sized it approximately 5 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches that way it would leave a nice boarder around the layout.

Once the cut file and photos were backed all this layout needed was a couple of stickers and it was done!

Happy Days Layout | Happy Days Cutfile | NenaScrap

Hi CUT to YOU friends,

It’s NenaScrap with you today. I’m happy to share with you a new funny layout.

I wanted a festive atmosphere to celebrate this photo of my son with one of his favorite heroes at Disney Studios in Disneyland Paris.
This cute Happy Days cutfile seemed perfect for this theme.

I chose the Some Days collection from Pink fresh Studio because I wanted a colorful layout to match my son’s photo with this character from Monsters, INC.

I backed the Happy Days cutfile with printed papers from the Some Days collection by mixing and matching colors for more fun.

I added tickets and tags from the Some Days collection on each side of the title, mixing shapes and colors and adding volume with 3D adhesive foam.

I created a subtitle using an alphabet puffy sticker to remind the context of the photo.
To finish, I added some Gesso splatters to my background.

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you like this layout and that it inspires you. Check out the CUT TO YOU website, you’ll find lots of great cut files for your projects.

I can’t wait to share some new crafting ideas with you.

Have a happy crafty day.

Hugs & kisses from France.
