Together | Tamara Buckler

Hello lovely CTY friends,

I hope you’ve had so much fun joining in with our 2nd Birthday celebrations this month! There has some amazing inspiration going around, and heaps of beautiful entries coming in for our challenges! I’m up on the blog today sharing my layout inspired by the moodboard challenge.

I quickly discovered I didn’t have any hot pink patterned paper in my stash, and this was my main inspiration from the mood board. I decided I needed to make my own, so I pulled out all the pink mixed media elements that I had, and set about making a background. I have also added in lots of black marks, to tie back to the black in the inspiration images.

I then used the new TN Circles Sliced Cut File, cutting it in black cardstock and mounting on foam tape.

For some reason, my mixed media is photographing as very orange, but I promise it’s hot pink! To tie this in with the Circles Sliced Cut File, I cut the background I had created into circles, and cascaded these down the page, before laying my Cut File over them.

I like to think of different ways to use our Cut Files, and including them in backgrounds like this or included with mixed media elements in a grungy sort of way is a little different from the norm.

To finish off my page, I added in my title, some embellishments, and some word strips. I also added some black ink splatters and black doodling to further add to the grungy feel of my page.

Thanks for stopping by today, can’t wait to share with you again next month!!

Big Loves, Tam xx

Back To School | Melinda Sweetman

Hello, hello everyone and welcome to the blog today!! Melinda here to share my second creation with you for this oh so fun birthday month!!

Yep, that is back to school 2020! I tend to scrap as I feel inspired rather than chronologically. I have used the Back To School cut file released earlier this year which I really, really love and have had cut for ages!

This month was the PERFECT time to use this cut file and play along with the Two-Riffic Birthday challenge happening right now over in the HQ Facebook group! Head over here for the challenge album and have fun creating!

I have a process video for you which you can see below, just click that button, sit back and enjoy!

And here are a few close up details!

I hope you have enjoyed my share today and I look forward to seeing your creations for both of the fun Birthday challenges happening until 10th August!

Until next time, happy scrapping!

Let’s Party | Rachel Lowe

Firstly I am so proud to be a part of Cut to You and happy 2nd birthday to you! In celebration there is lots going on, I love a mood board challenge and this PINK one is just gorgeous. Make sure you join us!IMG_7606

IMG_7607And here is my take on the Mood Board challenge, of course I had to do a birthday themed layout. I have used Pink Paislee And Many More collection.UntitledI have used the gorgeous Let’s Party title cut file which is perfect for a birthday themed layout.IMG_7609Paper tearing was one of the first techniques I remember learning when I started scrapbooking many years ago, I have noticed of late it seems to be trending again and so I went back to a fav. I tore the top and bottom corners of my pink paper and backed it with a 12×12 banner paper, leaving the tears unglued so I could tuck elements under.Untitled

Untitled-3I cut my title Let’s Party measuring the space where I wanted it to go using white cardstock. Then choosing a bright coloured paper I cut each individual letter and heart segments (I always use the release compound function on my Silhouette Cameo to do this). Some letters and heart parts I used foam tape to adhere to create a 3D effect.Untitled-4Lastly I added my photo creating a polaroid photo mat and then embellishing with party themed elements. Lastly I added paint splatter of gold and white to add to the party effect.Untitled-2And there you have it one PINK PARTY themed layout. Head over to the shop for all your party and birthday themed cut files. Thank your stopping by and see you again soon!
