My Guy | Ali Skifton

Hello my CTY friends! It is Ali here with you today sharing a layout I created using the Segmented Circle Cut File. I decided to use this photo of my husband that was taken in Door County on vacation last Summer. He dislikes his photo taken so I appreciate this photo so much more and had to make sure that this layout was extra special.

The photo was taken at a Lavender farm and I wanted to pick up the red color from the barn and the blues of his shirt and eyes for the layout. I decided to use the Fancy Pants Hometown Summer collection. I filled the circle with bits from this collection and added a 5 x 7 photo of my husband in the middle. I then added foam tape to the back to add some dimension to the layout.

The photo didn’t fill the opening of the cut file so I used a few flower die cuts to cover that and you could never tell that there was ever a small gap.

I used letter stickers for the title and a few enamel dots sprinkled behind. I wanted to add a little something to the white space and created some blue and red paint splats in the two corners.

There are so many uses for this cut file, it is a great one to add to your cut file collection. Go check it out in the shop and I would love to see what you create with it. Make sure you share it on the CTY Facebook page!

Happy Creating! Love, Ali xoxo

Hello scrappy peeps! I have a fun layout of my grandson, Cason. I used the new Shooting Stars cut file from the shop, This element (the cut file) made my page come together so easily. It also gave me the inspiration for my title! I just love when one element sparks an idea for another element on the page! I cut the file in textured-white cardstock and adhered it directly to the patterned background. I then adhered stars of various colors, textures and sizes around the page for a very dynamic look.

If you would like more details and to see how this layout came together, please click below.
