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!

I love how the black really pops off the page and gives it an elegant feel! And while I used lots of different manufacturers, by letting my photo be my guide, my layout works together seamlessly!

Celebrate Happy Times | Meggy Blethen

Hello CUT to YOU fans! I am back today with a very special layout. I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVED all of the new release floral cut files this month so I knew I had to make a layout using them.

That is exactly what I did with this layout of my scrappy bestie and I, having a fun night out celebrating her birthday. At first I thought I’d only use one of the florals from the release but I had them all sitting out on my desk when I started making my layout and they all looked so pretty. I decided the layout needed all of them

I wasn’t sure if I’d like using 3 different flowers on a layout, but in the end I think it looks amazing. I really love how the clusters frame the photo!

I also added some fussy cut florals from an Auburn Lane patterned paper.

I wanted the cut files to stand out against the background so I used a green patterned paper to back the leaves on each flower and then a pretty pink with gold pattern paper for the flower itself.

I had also cut out the ‘Happy Times’ cut file to use as a title and I absolutely love how that looks with the gold alpha as part of it.

I used one of the flowers from the Daisy Trio cut file to add a little pop behind the word ‘Celebrate’ in the title.

For this cluster under the title I cut off some of the leaves from the Rosey Posey cut file and added them as another embellishment. I love how it looks!

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a process video for you to watch on my youtube channel below:

Go See Do | Tamara Buckler

Hello CTY friends!!

I’m back today sharing another fun layout, this time featuring the Go See Do Cut File from our Travelers Notebook collection.

Some of you may have noticed that my style swings wildly from girly, to clean, to grunge – and I think this is one of the reasons why I love CUT to YOU so much – the Files work no matter what!

So today I’m sharing with a Travelers Notebook File that I have used on quite a grungy 12×12 layout. I have enlarged the file in Silhouette Studio, and then cut it out of black cardstock.

I backed the File with a textured ombré paper from Pink Fresh Studios, and popped the whole thing up on foam tape. I secured the File to the background on a bit of an angle, which creates a bit of interest against the text heavy background.

I’ve layered up two 3×3 photos and tucked them alongside the Cut File, nestling them in around the letters without covering too much of the File. With so much impact going on with the Cut File and background paper, I kept my embellishments to a minimum.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my layout. Make sure you pop over to the shop and check out all the new Cut Files – and if you haven’t already sign up for the newsletter because I hear there is big stuff coming in December 😉

Big Loves,

Tam xo

Always Remember / Bernii Grof

Hi , Bernii here with you today sharing a layout that I have created using the #ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS word title cut file. I LOVE using the title cut files as the main feature on my layouts and once again Gwen has created a new collection of goodies to add to your layouts. So let me show you what I have created.

IMG_6226 (1)

This layout came together super easy once I choose which title to use. There are SO many to choose from and it really does make pulling a layout together  easy.  For this layout I decided to back the title with bright patterned papers from the Shimelle collection          ” Sparkle City”

XHashtagRememberThis

 

When cutting out the backing pieces for the title I always keep the cut out pieces from the original cut and use the letters separately to help me easily trace and cut each individual letter. I then attach those pieces to the cut file to back it. This helps me to save my scissors getting gunked up with glue.

IMG_6235 (1)

I also find by cutting out the letters separately means that I am not going to run the risk of accidentally cutting into the cut file as I am trimming off the excess paper .

I love the simplicity of this layout and how this cut file title does all the “talking” a such for me. Remember if you would like to see this cut file or more similar ones make sure you check out the store HERE.

 

Till next time much love

I kept my layout quite simple-thats the wonderfulness of a Page Builder file…everything you need to put a page together! I used a large (6X6) photo and the only extra embellushments on my page were some epoxy flair…easy peasey!

Happy Memories | Melinda Sweetman

Hello, hello fellow CTY fans!!! Melinda here with you sharing my latest DT creation with you.

As you can see I’ve used the gorgeous Butterfly Cut n Stitch file (I’ve been busting to use this beauty!!) with a photo of myself, The Boss Lady, Gwen, Tamara, Bernii and Rachel D from the DT! We recently attended a retreat together and I just couldn’t wait to scrap these photos!!

A girly cut file means a pretty, girly collection and I couldn’t help but bust out the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studio Unforgettable collection. I’ve used the 6×8 paper pad to back the butterflies that I had cut on some textured white card stock.

If you haven’t seen or used the Cut n Stitch files yet they come with both the cut file (butterflies in this case) and the stitch lines already in place. I “designed” my page in Silhouette Studio knowing that the card stock that had the stitch holes would ultimately be my back ground paper. This was a super easy and quick file to stitch with a straight back stitch. You could also use the chain stitch for extra texture! Then I added splatters using 2 different pinks and an aqua-y/teal-y colour.

With the cut file backed and the butterfly trails stitched onto my background that didn’t leave me much room for where to put things which made this page come together super quickly! I knew pretty quickly I wanted to mount the white card stock onto a pattern paper so chose the gorgeous pink pattern called “Unscripted”, cutting out the centre.

My photo is printed just under 6×4 with a white border. I’ve added some of the same paper and a doily behind my photo and tucked that between the butterflies on the bottom right.

As so much of my pages real estate already taken up it was a matter of adding a few small embellishments and my title. I’ve used the diagonal line from the top left to the bottom right and added a few bits and pieces. Because I used gold letters I also added in some gold splatters on that same line. Finally finishing the page with some enamel dots.

And my title using a clear sticker stuck onto some white card stock paired with those gold thickers.

I have a process video for you today and I do hope you enjoy! This cut file is so, so pretty and I just love it with this collection!

Remember, you can always shop in the store. All digital orders will send them straight away and Custom Cut orders (YES! Gwen will cut and ship to YOU!) are cut to order and sent ASAP! I hope you have enjoyed my share today and I can’t wait to be back again with my next one!

Until then, happy scrapping!

Awesome | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello!

I have what might be one of my very favorite layouts ever to share with you! I love to create mixed media backgrounds. I think I have a unique take on how I approach mixed media. I like a “cleaner” look with lots of texture instead of a “messy” feel. Pair this with a gorgeous cut file and “swoon”- if I do say so myself.

IMG_3654

For today’s layout I used the Arrows Cut File . I love how it drew attention right to my photo.

IMG_3696

After I created my background. I backed the cut file with papers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Boys Rule collection. To compliment the colors in my photo, I added some small touches of pink.

443885F3-E3A7-4DC8-82FF-3B0B93F8DB7D

I used a stamp to guide my journaling about all the things my son is currently loving.

Be sure to take a peek at all the cut files in the Cut To You  shop. Which one will catch your eye to pair with our next mixed media background?

Have A Lovely Day!

Life of a Crafter | Meggy Blethen

Hello Scrapbookers!! I am back today with a cut file released back in July. I don’t know about you buy I love being a crafter and scrapping about it. Back in 2017 I rearranged my craft room and took photos of the process. I loved the cute Craft a Happy Life cut file and it worked perfect with this photo of my craft room in disarray.

As you will see though, I did alter the title part of the cut file to fit my subject. I have more photos that I want to add in a pocket page after this layout that will show the organizing and cleaning process even more than this one does. As someone who is in my craft room a lot, I am always organizing and rearranging things to work better for myself. I decided to cut out a different title but use the alpha from the cut file.

Make sure to grab a copy of this cut file in the shop.

I love how the pink glitter paper pops off of the light colored background. For the smaller alpha I used American Crafts ‘Happy Life’ Thickers. The most important words of the title I wanted to stand out the most.

I adore the cute little paint brushes and cup holding them. I backed them with a pretty purple paper and added a couple of stickers around the cut file.

I really love how this layout turned out! I actually had started out on a different path at the beginning, which you can see in the process video below, or on my YouTube channel.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!

LIFE CAPTURED | BERNII GROF

Hello there, Bernii here with you today!!

I am here to share my with you all my latest layout that I have created again inspired by the new beginnings that Spring seems to symbolise. Now the photo that I scrapped isn’t a photo that was taken in the Spring months, however it is a photo of my daughter turning double digits and it made me think of the new beginnings she will face. To symbolise this a little more I chose a butterfly cut file to represent her change into the next stage of her life. So let me show you what I have created.

IMG_6216 (1)

Now this particular background cut file is the Butterfly Cluster Cut n Stitch , although I only used the butterflies cut file and also decided to cut two of the  clusters so that I could have them cover most of the background from left to right.

XButterflyCluster

I love how the butterflies just seem to sit on the page delicately when backed with patterned paper and vellum. I didn’t want to embellish the layout too much as I wanted the butterflies to stand out , and to help the butterflies seem like the wings are fluttering I only added glue to the body .

IMG_6220

I then added the ” Life Captured” title and only a smattering of embellishments from the latest CVS collection . Lastly, I just jotted down some thoughts on the moment that I captured.

IMG_6222

I’ve used the Bow Cluster Cut File Those cute bows were just too much to pass up! I paired them with the new One Canoe 2 Willow collection and these adorable photos of my nieces and I. 70577760_10220211448135264_8572947334919356416_o

I altered the cut file with just a bit with ink blending and a spray of gold shimmer to make it stand out and give it a fun golden glimmer.
