A Year To Remember | A Year To Remember Cut File | NenaScrap

Hi CUT TO YOU friends,

It’s NenaScrap with you today and I’m so happy to see you on the Cut To You blog again !

Today I want to show you this layout I made with the cut file A Year To Remember. I love the title cut files imagined by Gwen, they always give me the inspiration to start a new page.

This cut file was perfect to illustrate the highlights of the year 2021.

I cut my cut file from white cardstock and backed it with a printed paper from The Best Day collection by Pink Fresh Studio. This paper has lots of different colored labels. It was perfect for backing this beautiful A Year To Remember cut file.

To showcase my title, I made a background with Distress Worn Lipstick ink and Andrea’s Azalea Magicals powder. I used a blending tool with my Distress then splashed my background with my powder diluted with water.

I glued my cut file with 3D adhesive foam to give volume to my layout.

I made a photo montage with 4 of our best family moments of the year and matted my photo with several pieces of paper.

I added “2021” to my photo with an alphabet sticker and finished it off by adding die-cuts and stickers from The Best Day collection by Pink Fresh Studio.

I really loved making this layout with this beautiful A Year To Remember cut file. Do you like title cut files? There are plenty in the store here.

I hope this layout will inspire you.

Have fun with your cut files and see you soon.

Hugs & kisses from France.

Go See Do | TN Go See Do Digital Cut file | Petra de Vroege

Hi Cut to You friends!

So good to see you on the Cut to You blog again!
Today I want to show you this layout I made with the great Go See Do file. I love using TN files on layouts, they make great titles and backgrounds.

I wanted to create a subtle soft layout. I started with cutting the file out of white card stock. I kept the inner pieces of the letters.

I used the inner pieces as a template to cut the letters out of design paper. For the Go and Do I used one design paper and for the See a different one.

I distressed the edges and stuck them with thin foam tape so that they are slightly elevated from the rest of the layout.

For the background I used matching distress oxides and some Nuvo drops.

In the little arrows of the file I glued extra arrows. I really like this file, it’s such a great title!! Have you seen the other TN files in the shop??

I hope I was able to inspire you!
Have fun with your next cut file and see you soon!

xoxo

Merry and Bright | Tamara Buckler

Hello and Happy New Year CTY friends!!

I’m so happy to be back with you again this year! Hope you are all well and have had a lovely festive season! Today I am up sharing a Christmas layout I created while we had a little down time, and I’m using the Merry and Bright cut file and some older Christmas pics of my girls.

I think I have mentioned before that I am Christmas scrapping convert, and one of the ways I have made this work for me is to use non-conventional colour stories on my Christmas pages. For this page I have gone with green, black and white, and I love how this works!

I have used the Merry and Bright cut file as my title, which I had cut out from white cardstock, and have coloured it using a black Posca pen. This is such an easy way to alter your cut files, and in this instance I feel it made the file stand out a lot better on my page.

I have used a black Charms Creation star over the top of the star in the file, and I love how this gives the title a bit more dimension, which can sometimes be tricky with really fine files like this one.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Make sure you stop by and check out the Christmas Shop for lots more cut files to document all your Christmas memories!

Take care out there.

Big Loves, Tam x

CUT to YOU | Happy New Year | Happy New Year Cut File | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hello Everyone and a very happy new year to you all! Incredible how fast this last year went by, and 2022 is here. New year, new chances, new resolutions… AND… new cut files! 😀 For my layout I chose a photo from 2 years ago and the Happy New Years cut file from the January 2022 release.

First I cut the Happy New Year cut file from white cardstock and started to back it. I chose the Bohemian Dreams collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio, as it has similar purple shades as our accessories in the photo. 😀

When I was ready, I matted my photo with some patterned papers.

I wanted to add some highlights to the background, and cut the Kaleidoscope paper in half and glued it on a white cardstock. It looks like the colours of fireworks.

I placed the title cut file and my photo, and glued them down. I added some stickers and embellishments to the photo, and sewed some sparkling elements on the patterned paper with the help of the Stitch It! embroidery stencil of Lora Bailora.

Now get your New Year’s Eve photos printed and start creating! Have a look at the new cut files here, and grab your favourite ones! I wish you a very creative and happy 2022!

Merry Everything | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends and Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful few days celebrating!

It’s Tarrah back with you to share a new Christmas layout featuring the awesome Merry Everything title cut file.

Merry Everything cut file

I started by cutting the Merry Everything cut file design out of white cardstock and then backed it with different papers from the Kringle & Co collection by Photoplay Paper. Once it was all backed I adhered the cut file with foam tape to the left of a patterned paper background also from the Kringle & Co collection. I then trimmed this paper down and matted the entire layout on the red plaid paper.

I adhered my photo to the right of the cut file with a small plaid paper layered under the photo. I added a gorgeous red and black heart from Charm’s Creations to the left of the photo and also added a flair from Just Add Flair to the centre of the ‘R’ in Every.

I kept the embellishing fairly simple, adding just a few stickers and die-cuts here and there. I like to add embellishments to the top of my cut files, I like how this helps to draw your eye to the cut file. Lastly I stamped the date stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you all had a lovely time celebrating Christmas.

The Good List | Tamara Buckler

Hello and Merry Christmas!!

What a fabulous time of year! It’s been a bumper month for CTY shares, and now it’s only a couple more sleeps before the jolly fat man finds us!!

I’m back up on the blog again sharing another layout for our 25 days of Christmas fun with a really simple but silly page.

The Good List Cut File is one of my fave CTY files because it’s a bit cheeky and can be used for all number of antics including our naughty puppy playing dress ups.

I actually cut the file in white card stock, and then as the page came together I decided it needed to be in black. I used a black Posca paint pen to colour the file, and then came in with red for the tick.

I backed each letter in each word with a different but coordinating paper for a fun and random look, and with the file in black, the whole thing jumps off the page.

I tucked my photos and embellishments in around the Cut File, letting the dimensions and shape of file dictate what went where.

PS… funny story… Lola ate her hat about 5 mins after this photo was taken! Think she should actually be on the naughty list!!

25 Days of Christmas | Fast, Fun and Festive Scrapbook Ideas | Day 19

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest post for CUT to YOU. I hope you all follow our 25 Days of Christmas fun on the blog and get the digital cut files each day from the shop 80% off. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to do so, Christmas is coming 😉

For my inspiration I chose the Happy Christmas Circle Cut File. I love these circle cut files, they are so special, and you can play with them a lot! You can cut them multiply times in different sizes, or just one time, but you can still make different layouts with it.

First I cut the Happy Christmas Circle cut file from white cardstock. My idea was to highlight the circle design of the cut file and make a dimensional layout. So first I cut the edge of the cut file with my circle cutter. After that I backed the letters of the cut file with some red patterned paper. I used the Winter Cottage collection of Simple Stories from last year.

I cut a smaller circle from a patterned paper of the Winter Cottage collection and an other one in smaller size. To add a special effect I cut some circles from gold glitter cardstock and added them under the cut file and one of the patterned papers, and the photo.

I started to glue everything down – I added some foam under each section to get it more dimensional. It is almost like a tiered cake 😀

Then I cut some pine branches with my Sizzix and glued them around the biggest circle. It looks like an Advent wreath.

I also cut some other branches and some poinsettia flowers with my Sizzix, and decorated my photo and the layout with them diagonally.

Love the project and want to make one of your very own? Pop by the store and use the code CHRISTMASFAVS at checkout to get this design at 80% off. No additional purchase necessary.

Joy | Christmas Joy cut file | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends! It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Christmas themed scrapbook layout featuring the awesome Christmas Joy cut file. As you can tell in my layout, I didn’t not use much of the cut file on my page at all! I ended up cutting most of it up and opting for just the one word title for this layout.

Christmas Joy cut file

I firstly cut the entire cut file out from white cardstock and then decided it was a little bit big for what I wanted it for. I did want to include a few embellishments on this layout so by cutting up the cut file, it allowed me to use some if the embellishments without making the page look too busy. I backed the cut file with a gorgeous red paper, I love how this makes the cut file stand out. I also love layering things on tip if cut files, I took one of the circle die-cuts and popped it up with foam tape in the centre of the ‘O’ of Joy.

I placed my photo slightly towards the left of my page and then layered the Joy title to the right of the photo, slightly overlapping onto the photo. Above the title I placed some ephemera pieces and an enamel dot. To the right of the title I placed a flair button, a heart and a phrase sticker. Below I added the Christmas title and also a pretty fabric bow. A few more phrase stickers added here also help tell the story.

Underneath my photo, I layered a cardstock frame, added a Charm’s Creatiom arrow to the left of the photo and layered a circle die cut on top. I pooped up the Fa La La La pennants with foam tape and adhered this at the bottom of the photo. Lastly I stamped the date sta pplpmp to finish my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?!

Sun + Shine | Summer Vibes cut file | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends!

It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Summer themed layout featuring the gorgeous Summer Vibes title cut file. I decided to take just the sun shape from the cut file and put the title away to use another time.

Summer Vibes cut file

I cut the design out from white cardstock and then backed it with a nice pink patterned paper. I then added craft foam underneath and adhered it to the top half of the teal scalloped patterned paper I chose for my background. I also adhered a strip of the blue patterned paper just under the sun cut file. I love the shadows the layout gets when elements are popped up with dimensional adhesive.

I placed my photo and the layers under my photo towards the right of my page and also some adhered some embellishments here too. Some embellishments I added were stickers, floral and regular die- cuts, floral transparent pieces, puffy stickers and chipboard pieces. I placed my title ‘Sun + Shine’ in the arch of the sun and also adhered a wood veneer cloud here.

To the left of my photo I placed a tag upside down so that the tie was at the bottom, I love the texture some twine brings to a layout. I also adhered the Sun Shine Sun yellow diecut here. As I added yellow here I then strategically placed a yellow embellishment in 2 other positions on my layout to create a visual triangle on my layout.

Happy Halloween | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends!

It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Halloween themed layout. I chose the awesome Happy Halloween title cut file enlarging it slightly in the Silhouette Studio software and cutting it out from light blue cardstock for something a little different.

Happy Halloween cut file

I teamed the cut file with the Goosebumps collection by Pretty Little Studio, backing the Happy word with one patterned paper and the Halloween word with another. I then adhered the cut file to a grid style patterned paper background. I tucked my photo in to the top right of the cut file overlapping the Halloween word at the bottom.

On the web part of the cut file, I layered a colourful web die-cut and a punched out circle word on top of the web using foam tape. I added a few enamel dots around the page and also some stickers and phrases to help tell the story. I love to overlap embellishments on top of cut files as it draws focus and adds interest.

I kept the embellishing fairly simple on this layout as I felt the cut file makes a great statement on my page and I did not want to cover it up. A Halloween page would not be complete without a spider added, the die-cut one at the top of the page fits in so well as it balances with the web at the bottom of the cut file.
