Happy Day | Ribbon and Roses Cutfile | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you a layout featuring a sassy swan friend. This fellow seemed a bit perturbed that I would dare encroach upon his space. I did grab a quick photo and let him go on his way. I used the Ribbon and Roses cutfile and cut it out in a mid-weight white textured cardstock. It cut beautifully!

I decided to use all Paige Evans goodies for this project from the new “Wonder” collection. The deep orange background allows the cutfile to really pop as well as highlighting Mr. Swan’s beak. I loved backing this cutfile with a bunch of different patterned papers and centering the whole design.

I do so enjoy how the photo nestles right into the top of the ribbon! We have so many beautiful floral files in the shop, make sure you pop over and check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Bloom | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this silly layout featuring my girl getting her hair all fancy! I doubled up on cutfiles this time using both the Hexagon Frame cutfile as well as the Valentine Rose cutfile. I think that they look fantastic together!

I wanted to use a gorgeous collection and Summer collection by Carta Bella doesn’t disappoint. Look at how fantastic these tones are with the Valentine Rose cutfile!

The Valentine Rose cutfile is popped up on dimensional adhesive and lots of the gorgeous floral bits from Carta Bella are tucked beneath the photo cluster as well as on the upper right. I used some gorgeous flair from Scrappin’ Happy Studio with a lemon vibe and wrapped a bit of black and white twine around them for contrast. And finally, I used some Shimmerz products for splatty bits. I’m smitten with this layout!

Y’all can see my full process here:

Happy Scrapping!

Smiles All Around|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today. I have a brand new layout to share featuring the Snap Shot cut file from the SHOP!

I started my project by backing the cut file with lots of pretty foil papers. I left some of the cut file empty to allow my yellow background paper to pop through and provide some extra color.

I popped the cut file up on foam tape. I just love the effect of giving cut files a little pop for added shadows and dimension.

I backed my photo with a contrasting patterned paper and then added some ephemera clusters around my photo so that it doesn’t get lost on the colorful background.

You can check out all the details over on my channel.

Have A Lovely Day!

A love like gnome other | Tamara Buckler

Hey hey CTY peeps!

I’m up on the blog today with a really fun and silly share! Some of the DT have been a bit obsessed with the little gnomes that have been coming out in collections lately, and the lovely Gwen has been very accepting of this… so much so that she made us some gnome-y cut files! Today I’m using the A Love Like Gnome Other File to document these silly photos of my girls from Halloween.

I started by cutting the file using black card stock, and then cut it a second time using a bluey green colour, but taking out the inside lines, so I could use it to back the file. I adhered these two cuts together, and then added back in the black hearts, which I stitched on for a bit of fun and texture. I also stitched around the page in black to tie all this together.

I used a very busy background paper for this page, and so applied some gesso in the background to tone things down. I also popped the entire file up on foam to provide some separation from all the busy-ness.

I tucked my photos and most of my cute little embellishments in around my title. I actually used black ink around the edges of these, to tie it back to the title and again provide some separation from the background.

I mean, how cute is this little guy ^ 😍!

Love You More | Heart You More | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this layout featuring the Heart You More cutfile. I chose to cut the cardstock in a nice bright white and filled in the letters with a gorgeous patterned paper from Amy Tangerine.

I am loving Nuvo Mist right now and applied a liberal amount of splatty bits to the deep blue background. I used a fab sequin mix for the large hearts in the title for a bit of pizazz!

You can see here that I layered a sentiment, a directional sticker and an adorable puffy hexi in this cluster for interest. I love that a large cutfile can dictate the design and direction for your entire layout!

Check out the versatility of this cutfile. You can fill all of the sweet little hearts in or leave them as a bold contrast like I did!

I’d be honored if you took a looksee at my process video here:

I hope that you have the best scrappy day!

Best Friend | Chevron Stripe | Tamara Buckler

Hello my scrappy friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing a fun page featuring our old boy, Baxter. I usually create such girly pages, so it was fun flexing my muscles to create something more masculine.

I started this project by making the Chevron Stripe cut file as large as I could, stretching it out in the Silhouette Software so it took up nearly a whole piece of 12×12 cardstock. I decided to cut the file from Kraft cardstock because I like the texture and warmth that this adds.

I had intended to treat the file as more of a pocket, but once I had paired it with the starry patterned paper, I decided I liked how this filled in the gaps. To provide a little definition however, I did go around the edges of the chevron in black fine liner.

I then set about adding my photo and paper layers to my page, which I anchored toward the bottom right for balance. I tucked my title and embellishments pretty close to my photo so as to keep a tight focal point.

I added another smaller cluster to the upper left of my page, keeping it tight, and again with the aim of keeping the page balanced. I made sure to replicate elements from my main focal point/photo stack so as to tie the two together.

I really love how this came together. It really gave me a chance to use up some stash that was a bit outside my norm, and I was able to document a photo of our beautiful old boy. This cut file is so versatile, and fits right in with the boy collection over at the Cut to You shop.

Thanks for stopping by again, I’ll see you again next time.

Big loves, Tam xo

Oh Yeah! | Floral Bouqet Set | Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,

So happy to see you on the Cut to You blog today! It’s Josefine here sharing you a new scrapbook layout that I made with these beautiful cutfiles!
For this layout I used the gorgeous cutfile Floral Bouquet Set. I just can’t get enough of these beautiful flower cutfiles from Cut to You!!

I started my page with a white cardstock sheet. I cut some beautiful design paper from the gorgeous Vicki Boutin collection “Color Study” to size and placed the design paper strokes in the center of this page.

I backed the Floral Bouquet Set flowers with green design paper and the smaller one with vellum. I placed the flowers both in the center of my scrapbook page!

I fussy cut some flowers and cut some design papers to size and placed the papers behind the photo. I decorated my page with the flowers.

I’m looking for the right word strips, Some die-cuts and stickers for a little bit more decoration.
I used the “Oh yeah “ puffy sticker as my tittle for this scrapbook layout and I decorated my tittle with some extra puffy hearts. I made some black and white splitters on my page.
For the black splatters I used some black acrylic ink and for the white splatters I used white gesso.
I loved the paint spletter look on my layouts!

Now it’s time to cut the white cardstock to size and put it on top of a 12×12 design paper. I used my sewing machine to stitched the edges of my page. I love how my page turned out! I want to thank you for visiting the Cut to You blog today and hope I was able to inspire you with this scrapbook layout!
Wishing you a beautiful and creative day today!
XoXo,
Jo

Why Hello There | Tamara Buckler

Hello lovely CTY friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing my latest layout. This time I’m using the Why Hello There Cut File, which is a new one for me.

I have been really inspired by the layouts coming out lately with fringing within the Cut File, like this one here from DT member Belinda. But instead of fringing, I wanted to play with the idea of patchwork.

To do this, I manipulated the Cut File in Silhouette Studio and removed the internal cut lines. This cut the file as one whole piece, which I was then able to lay my little squares of paper onto to make the patchwork look I was going for.

I also cut the file as designed by Gwen and laid this over the top of my patchwork background. I felt the file was getting a little lost against all the busy little squares, so I proceeded to outline the title using a black fine liner.

I then popped the whole file up on foam tape, and chose a black background for extra contrast. I tucked my photo and layers behind the file, and centred these on the page.

I added additional squares of paper along the top and bottom of the page, adding some black stitching, to again accentuate the patch work feel.

I’m so happy with how fun and playful this page ended up being. I’m sure this Title file is meant for babies or something cute 😂 but I love how it worked with my funny selfie!!

Big Loves, Tam xo

Wonders | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! What could be better than your daughter bringing you flowers? Absolutely nothing! Well maybe creating a layout with the beautiful Rose Builder cutfile!

I started off by using a gorgeous background by Paige Evans. I lightly matted the photos of the bouquets and then started layering up these gorgeous roses. I used a combination of Shimmerz Paints products to enhance the cutfile and really play into the gorgeous colors in the photos. Once my roses were dry, I backed them with a bit of vellum that I had on hand.

I had the best time creating this layout! I do so hope that you are inspired to layer up this gorgeous cutfile and have some fun scrappy time of your own!
