Totally Awesome Wow! | Tamara Buckler

Hello CTY friends,

So happy to be back with you again to share another fun layout featuring another fun cut file! For this layout I have used the Floral Camera file, which I have kept quite small, and have cut from white card stock.

I really wanted the cut file to be the focal point of my layout, particularly as I wanted to add my photo inside the lens of the camera. So I started there, popping in my photo amd then backing the file, and then working my way outwards.

I love how all the layers direct your eye toward the cut file, and even though there are a lot of colours and patterns, that this remains the focus. I thinking cutting it out in white, and adding dimensional foam underneath, also helps with this. As does using minimal embellishing.

There are quite a few similar camera cut files in the shop, and you can actually pick them up in a bundle set, which is great value for money!

Thanks for stopping by again today.

Big Loves, Tam xo

Loving the Everyday | Kelly Pyron

Hello Friends! I am so excited to share my newest layout using the “Loving the Everyday” Cut File. This title is perfect for how I am currently feeling and the photos I wanted to scrap!

It is perfect because we finally had a normal, lovely, uneventful, sunny weekend! I was so excited to take the grandkids to lunch and then to the park. Things that use to be common occurrences are now so precious and exciting. We had a very rough winter and rough year in general. So being together and outside feels wonderful!

I used a collection from Amy Tangerine that is bright and colorful to capture the mood and feel of the photos. I layered the embellishments in clusters focusing on using different sizes, textures, and dimensions. This helps create a dynamic, visually appealing grouping.

I cut the title on black cardstock and then again on yellow patterned paper. I adhered the black outline and filled in the outlines with the yellow letters popped up on foam tape. The photo above shows the awesome dimension this creates. Lastly, I added some black stitching to two sides of the layout and on the blue banner piece at the bottom right. I just love the look of messy stitching!

I just love how this layout came together! I love the contrast of the black with all the fun bright colors! Thank you for stopping by the blog today and here’s hoping for lots more normal, magical days!
