I have wanted to use the Skate page builder Cut File for aaages! And I knew I had the perfect picture for it, I just had to find it! I sized the Cut File in my Silhouette software to suit a 9 x 12in layout, and cut the skates from some pink patterned paper and the title from white cardstock.
I backed the skates and the title with a mixture of paper scraps and some awesome rainbow paper from the Photo Play Tulla and Norbert collection. I also used silver washi tape for the ‘metal’ areas on the skates.
I was a bit bummed after I backed my title, as I usually like to be deliberately random when I am using a mixture of papers to back the letters – but because these words were seperate, I didn’t notice that I used the rainbow paper for the first letter of both. Not a big deal, just one of my quirks! We all have those right?
I hadn’t planned on using the Christmas Banner on this page, but I had it cut and sitting on my desk, and it fit perfectly in that corner, so why not!? Perfect! The file had been cut in white card stock, and because I had decreased it’s size so much, and the lines are very thin. This made it a little tricky to back, so it’s not perfect, but I’m okay with that!
To finish off my page I added some wood veneer and acrylic embellishments from Corbett Creations, and really these small touches are all it needed as the Cut Files speak for themselves.

Hi Scrappy friends, its Michelle back here today with a new layout share for you all. I’ve used one of our BRAND NEW cut files from the 2019 Christmas Release – the super cool Christmas Banner set.
This cut file is AMAZING! It cuts out so perfect and is super easy to back using loads of pretty pattern papers – especially the Unforgettable collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
Is definitely MORE than just a Christmas cut file. Super versatile for all the celebratory photos you want to scrap, like the photo I’ve used from my birthday a couple months back. The multiple different pattern papers distract from the obligatory night time birthday cake photo that isn’t super focussed HAHA
I made sure to balance the different patterns out across the page and didn’t group similar patterns or colours together. I even threw in a little silver glitter paper for a hint of sparkle here and there.
The entire cut file was cut on white cardstock using my Silhouette machine. I think I resized the design slightly to ensure it took up a good chunk of the background paper. I adhered it to the backing pattern paper using some foam tape for dimension. You all know how much I love a little dimension on a layout to make it POP!
I added a couple of complimentary embellishments here and there, but not too many as there was already so much going on around this page
Love love love layering different complimentary patterns together!
Well friends that is all from me today. Thank you so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out ALL the new files loaded in store HERE, and check into our facebook group – CUT to YOU HQ to chat and share all things CTY.
