Our Little Baby | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. Among the many great cut files of the September Release there is a cute little one, which I chose for my layout today. The Little Romper cut file is perfect for all those baby photos & memories, and it would be also great for cards 😉

For my layout I chose the Little You, an older collection of Crate Paper. First I cut the Little Romper cut file from white cardstock, then I chose a patterned paper, called Little Nose for the romper. First I cut a 1″ wide border from that dotted paper, and added a 11″x11″ white cardstock on it. I wanted to machine stich the border, but my sewing machine didn’t want to sew the zig-zags: I had 2″ with thread and 2″ without when I realised that something is wrong… 😦 In order to save the paper, I decided to make the holes with the machine, thus I run over it without yarn, and then hand stitched it. So instead of 5 minutes it cost me more than an hour 😛

I backed my cut file and then started to make the layout. I chose a photo where my daughter was about 7 weeks old, starting to recognize her surroundings. I backed my photo with some patterned paper and also made some frames similar to the one from the cut out embellishments.

Finally I added some chipboards, stickers and cut out embellishments to decorate my page. Finally added some thread for the final touch.

Thanks for stopping by! Go and grab some new cut files from the CUT to YOU shop! 😉

Shine Bright | Rachel Lowe

Hello Cut to You friends, Rachel here! Today I have a baby themed layout to share using the gorgeous new cut file Shine Bright

I have used Pink Paislee Little Adventurer collection which is perfect for baby or young boy layouts.  I cut my white cardstock down to 11×11 bordering it with a lovely cloud rose gold flocked paper. I sized the Shine Bright cut file to fit on my 11×11 inch cardstock. I chose a grey heart paper to paper back the moon and a beautiful blue for the stars and title.

I paper backed some of the stars and the others I added with foam tape to add dimension to the stars (it avoids them looking flat). I finished off adding some drops of NUVO clear jewel drops.

So my title didn’t look ‘flat’ I added some of the letters with foam tape, it really draws your eye to the total and to finish off I added the super cute elephant die cut.

Then I set about creating a embellishment cluster using my photo at the centre. In adding my photo frame with foam tape means I can tuck elements under, I tend to play and shuffle for a while before settling and sticking down. Over and under is the key to layering and you will see here I have done that. I followed the shape of the moon in layering this embellishment cluster. I added another phrase die cut under my photo and again added NUVO clear drops to the cheeks of the cute critters and flowers/leaves.

I love how this layout turned out, this cut file is so beautiful and really it’s three cut files in one, moon, stars and title!
