Hello everyone! It is Ali here with you today sharing my Choose Happy layout for the Everyday challenge. I must say this was a challenge for me since I mostly scrap events and not everyday moments. The Choose Happy cut file in the shop caught my attention right away because this is how I choose to live life.
I knew I really wanted to make this title pop so I used a bright bold stripe Doodlebug Design Paper to cut the title out on my Cameo. The colors match my polka dot dress so I was happy about that. I used foam tape to pop up the first layer of my title without the Happy letters inside. I then added two layers of foam tape to pop the word happy so it really stood out on my page.
I added a colorful heart flair from Scrappin Happy Studio for the middle of the A and some Doodlebug Design bling for the letter P. I love the quotations around the title too, because I consider this my motto. Below is the link to this wonderful cut file.
I had so much fun doing something different with this title cut file and making the flowers to match my dress.
I hope you enjoy this layout and remember to always Choose Happy! Life is short and you only live once!
I cut out the Choose Happy design from white cardstock and backed the open space of the ‘Happy’ part of the cut file design with a pretty yellow patterned paper. Once the cut file was backed, I added craft foam underneath both the Choose and Happy words. For the Choose word, as the design is quite thin, I cut out small strips of craft foam and strategically placed them so they were not visible when I adhered the whole design to my background patterned paper.
As the background patterned paper has a two tone effect, I decided to place my title in a similar way, I wanted the bigger Happy word of the cut file to be on the darker part of the paper and the Choose word to be above on the lighter part of the paper. I was very careful when placing my photo and the layers underneath as I tucked it in underneath the Choose word. I like how cut files look overlapping photos.
To enhance the cut file, I fussy cut out soms butterflies and arranged them around the cut file and the photo. I also added smaller embellishments on top of the cut file including some chipboard and sticker phrases, bird stickers, some puffy hearts and a handmade fabric by Charm’s Creations. To finish the page, I added a clear sticker with the dots along the bottom of the cut file and I stamped the date stamp.

Hello Friends! I hope everyone is doing well and finding some time to be creative! I have a fun new layout to share with you today, using the Choose Happy and Floral Garland 01 cut files from the shop!
Every year, around my Birthday I like to create a “selfie” layout. This year I turned the big 50! I wanted to celebrate by using all my very favorite things on a layout! I used lovely florals, butterflies, stitching, woodgrain, tons of layers and a cut file with an uplifting message! Just a few of the best things on earth! Am I right!? 🙂
I cut the Floral Garland cut file on this lovely teal patterned paper to use as a layering element amongst all the other florals and butterflies.
I really wanted the title to take center stage. So, I cut the title out on patterned paper once and then used the offset function in Silhouette to cut the title again on the violet/ coral umbre paper. This gave the title more prominence on the page and really made it stand out. I am so pleased with how this layout turned out and had so much fun creating it!
