Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Rose Garden Frame cut file.
I decided to have a play with my cut file this week. I didnt just back it. I decided to add ink and Nuvo Drops to the centers to pop up the demension and interest. I also backed part of the cut files with vellum for added interest. And then popped the whole thing up with foam tape.
Sometimes I like to keep my cut files simple and sometimes I like to have a play with them and add extra dimension and detail. It’s part of the reason that I love cutfiles,you can keep them simple or add lots of details- the choice is yours.This was one I really wanted to play with.
I added a bit of mixed media to my background and kept the design fairly simple so the photo and cut file pop! I have a process video showing all of the details and design choices. You can head over to my channel and check it out!
Which cut file do you think would be amazing with some added depth and dimension? Head over to the SHOP and take a peek!
I’m up on the blog again today to share my latest layout for CTY. To create my page I have used our Book Stack Cut File to scrap an older school photo of my girls.
I am playing along with this months CSI Challenges and have drawn from Case File #368 for inspiration for my page. I was inspired by the ‘school vibes’ of the case file, and also chose to draw on the pastel colours for inspiration.
I cut the file from white card stock and used a variety of patterned papers to back the spine and covers of the books. I then used some notebook paper to back the ‘pages’ of books, and I love that this gives the file a different texture, much like you see with real books. I added foam tape behind the patterned papers to pop the file up from the page.
I have focussed the design of my page on the bottom half of my layout, laying my photo over the edge of the cut file, and clustering and tucking embellishments around these two elements. I really feel like this keeps the focus on the story of the page, even without adding any journaling.
I really love how this came together, and as always am grateful that I get to play with these amazing Cut Files to tell our stories. Gwen has released some amazing bundle deals over in the shop, so if you have back to school photos to scrap, make sure you check them out.
Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun layout featuring the ever so cool “Make Your Move” cutfile. I decided to use this cutfile for a putt putt adventure so I chose to save the chess pieces for another day.
You can see here that I added some heavy stitching around my background as well as used a contrasting patterned paper from the Simple Stories “Safe Travels” collection. I love how the pieces nestled right into the cutfile. There are so many fab new cutfiles in the Cut To You shop!
I’m up on the blog today sharing a fun summery page using the Daffodil Posie cut file from the Cut to You shop.
I have kept things pretty simple with the Cut File on this layout, and have just backed each section with patterned papers. I have used a yellow for the large daffodils, which totally makes them pop, and pink for the remaining flowers.
Once I had backed the whole file, I then popped the it all up on foam tape, which has allowed me to tuck my photo in underneath.
I have layered up some embellishments on top of the florals to create my title and really emphasise the focal point created by the Cut File.
I love the fun summery vibes I was able to create with this page, but the Daffodil Posie file is so versatile you could you it for any occasion.
Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this summery layout featuring the fab “Good Time Summer Fine” layout and the Simple Stories “Pool Party” collection. I have four small photos on this project where you see my sun playing around with a ball lakeside.
I just had to make that big sun into a shaker pocket! I then used four different patterned papers for the large title. Don’t you just love how a cutfile can help you create a layout ever so quickly?!
How are you all going out there in this crazy world!?! It’s times like these I’m so grateful for our wonderful craft! It’s often when I’m a little stressed I get a little messy in that space, and that what I’ve got to share with you this month, beautiful mess!!
The super cool Sunburst Heart file really got my creative juices flowing. As soon as I saw this file I new I wanted to an exploding rainbow of colour from each section of the heart.
I treated the file pretty simply by cutting it from white card stock. I then used this as a bit of a template designate the areas of my page I needed to add colour.
I selected my colours to match the papers in the Bloom St collection, and then filled in the sections on my background with matching watercolours.
I laid my photo and embellishments on top of the cut file, trying loosely to colour block my embellishments.
I’m really happy with how this one came together. I challenge you all to have a go at creating your own Sunburst Heart layout, I’d love to see how many beautiful interpretations of this file you can come up with. Share over in Cut to You HQ when you do!

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this ever so sad puppy layout featuring the beautiful Sunburst Heart cutfile. I thought that the Pinkfresh “Keeping It Real” collection was the perfect vibe for this tricky day for Blue.
I just had to do some hand sewing on this cutfile! I used a pale pink for the center of the heart and a nice aqua to back stitch around the entire cutfile. I love how it came together. I thought that the layout needed a bit more punch so I backed the bright yellow patterned paper with a gorgeous floral.
I layered embellishments by the same collection, grabbed some very old alphas and included some flair to bring it all together. I do love this one!
I’m up on the blog today sharing my latest layout using the ‘Hey Bestie’ Title Cut File that is new to the the shop.
I started this page by cutting the file nice and large from white card stock, and then backed the file with some patterned paper in the blues, purples and teals. I have used different papers behind each of the letters, but by staying in the same colour family have kept it cohesive.
I added some acrylic paints to my background in the area behind the file, and popped it up on some foam. This was a great way to keep it a feature and seperate it from the background.
I tucked my photo in beside the title and clustered my florals around the photo and title.
You can see in the below photo that I have damaged my file a little bit below the heart… I have been using a new glue and I think it’s too wet, so time for a new glue I think! I don’t mind too much about the wonky bits on the file, but I do know it would bother some peeps.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, make sure you pop over to the shop and check out the new releases!
