Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this ever so sad puppy layout featuring the beautiful Sunburst Heart cutfile. I thought that the Pinkfresh “Keeping It Real” collection was the perfect vibe for this tricky day for Blue.
I just had to do some hand sewing on this cutfile! I used a pale pink for the center of the heart and a nice aqua to back stitch around the entire cutfile. I love how it came together. I thought that the layout needed a bit more punch so I backed the bright yellow patterned paper with a gorgeous floral.
I layered embellishments by the same collection, grabbed some very old alphas and included some flair to bring it all together. I do love this one!
I’m up on the blog today sharing my latest layout using the ‘Hey Bestie’ Title Cut File that is new to the the shop.
I started this page by cutting the file nice and large from white card stock, and then backed the file with some patterned paper in the blues, purples and teals. I have used different papers behind each of the letters, but by staying in the same colour family have kept it cohesive.
I added some acrylic paints to my background in the area behind the file, and popped it up on some foam. This was a great way to keep it a feature and seperate it from the background.
I tucked my photo in beside the title and clustered my florals around the photo and title.
You can see in the below photo that I have damaged my file a little bit below the heart… I have been using a new glue and I think it’s too wet, so time for a new glue I think! I don’t mind too much about the wonky bits on the file, but I do know it would bother some peeps.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, make sure you pop over to the shop and check out the new releases!
Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today sharing my newest project featuring the Dragon Fly cut file!
I have been documenting some of our summer adventues in mini books I made including this one, all about our day at the local botanical gardens. I love to incorporate oversized cut files into my mini books! They are so striking used that way! I added beautiful ink blended wings, and backed the body with black cardstock. I added some clear glossy Nuvo drops as an accent.
I create a stamped background for my dragonfly and embellished with a few fussy cut floral elements to keep the design elegant and simple.
I love this fun,saturated, summery colors and that dragonfly is so striking!
Be sure to head over to the SHOP and check out all the summery cut files! For all the details, you can take a peek at my process video-
Hi CUT to YOU fans! We have a celebration this month as it’s CUT to YOU’s 3rd birthday! Woo hoo! Happy Birthday! To celebrate each of the Design Team are scraplifting one of Gwen’s past layouts…. I chose one she did back in March 2020 which you can find here, and I followed the design of the layout by using a large cutfile to the left of the photo.
I chose the fun Tropical Punch cut file which can be found here in the shop as it was perfect to go with my photo of a past holiday back in 2019 to St. Lucia in the Caribbean.
I decided to back the cut file using different patterned papers from the lovely Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘Sunkissed’ collection. The different pieces were all raised on foam pads to add dimension.
Once I placed the cut file on my white cardstock background I realised it needed something more behind it to ground it and help it stand out more. So I added a smooshy teal background using the packaging technique and some lovely shimmery watercolour paints from my stash. Then I finished off with lots of splatters… and once dry, I stitched it using gold thread to a frame of yellow cardstock.
I tucked my photo, which was mounted on one of the patterned papers from the collection in just behind the bottom right flower on the cut file.
I picked out some of the fun coordinating ephemera, clear stickers and gold hearts from and created two embellishment clusters to the bottom left of the cut file and bottom right of my photo. Because I wanted some of the clear stickers to be stuck over some of my photo and the cut file I stuck them onto white cardstock first and then fussy cut around them. This helps them stand out more an allows you to layer them.
Then I finished off with a title using two different Thickers alphas from my stash and of course added some journaling below my photo.
Thanks for stopping by, don’t forget to pop on over to the CUT to YOU shop to check out the latest cut file releases! Make sure you sign up to the newsletter here to be sure you don’t miss out on a fab free cut file each month!
Hey hey CTY friends! Happy Birthday month!! I can’t believe CTY is 3!! I’m so lucky to have been a long for the ride for the past 3 years to help watch this little business and our community grow. So epic!
I’m up on the blog today to share a scraplift from our inspirational boss lady @gwenwruck. I have scraplifted a page she did using the Bubbles of Fun Cut File and have kept the structure of the page pretty similar to hers.
I started my page by cutting the Cut File from some patterned paper… I actually flipped the file upside down because I knew I wouldn’t be using the title, and I felt it would fit the layout better.
I added some white gesso to my background before adhering my Cut File directly down. I then followed Gwen’s lead, adding a square photo, layers and flowing clusters down the page.
I even went as far as to use the same title, because how could I not with that photo of my daughter!
Thanks for stopping by again today, it means so much that you support us, and we love sharing with you every week! Make sure you head over to Cut to You HQ and check out all the birthday celebrations!
Hey and hello CUT to YOU family, Melinda here with you to share my latest creation using another beautiful “Gwen” cutfile!!
I’m using the super fun and versatile “Hey Bestie” cut file available here in the store for today’s page.
I recently took advantage of a photo printing special and have a stack of newly printed photos that I couldn’t wait to start scrapping with. Since I recently created a layout with an OLD photo of myself and my bestie I wanted to create a much newer one and thought I would incorporate the cut file with our mutual fave colour, pink!!
For something different I cut my file from some pink pattern paper from the “Classic Heidi Bundle” I picked up recently. I’ve used the paper that is about 2/3 light pink and 1/3 darker pink and love how the cut file has the ombré look to it!!
Side note, the internal letters were SOOOO PRETTY I couldn’t NOT use them so here’s a sneak peek of something coming next month 😉
On with this page!! I backed my cut file with washi tape!!! So fun! I just rolled some tape onto smooth white cardstock, traced my cutfile and then cut out my letters!!
I decided to create my own “die cut ephemera” using a layering stamp set, pink and green/teal inks and matching dies and just love how they turned out!
With lots of layers of pink around and behind my photo I created a mixed media background using BLACK!!! And I just adore how this works! It really makes all the things POP!
I, of course, have a process video for you to see this page come together and I do hope that you enjoy!!
Remember, this month is birthday month for CUT to YOU so make sure you are signed up to all of the things in all of the places so you don’t miss any of the fun celebrations! And Gwen has even put together a bundle of cut files in the store for all of your birthday page needs, with a discount too 😉
I hope you have enjoyed my share today (and my little sneaky peek!!) and I can’t wait to share my next creation with you!! Have a fab scrappy day!! Mel x
It is Ali here with you today sharing a fun layout dedicated to our wonderful hobby, Scrapbooking. Gwen has created a few cut files dedicated to our hobby. I fell in love with the Create Title cut file and just had a blast making this layout. I wanted something special to document the layouts I had published in the Scrapbooking & Cards Today magazine and this cut file was perfect to document this dream come true.
I was so excited to use the new craft line from Doodlebug Design and backed each word with a different patterned paper. I knew I wanted to have some fun with those cute hearts and decided to make them into shakers. I put a layer of acetate on the back of the hearts and used three layers of foam tape to outline each heart. I then filled the hearts with different colored bling from PinkFresh studios and sealed it with another heart that I cut out of vellum.
I used more foam tape on the back of the cut file to give it some dimension and added it to the white cardstock. I embellished with a few heart flairs from Scrappin Happy Studio on top of the hearts on the cut file. I have so much love for our hobby and I hope it shows with this layout!
I taped the white piece onto a rainbow sheet and then decorated the rest of the layout with some Doodle Pops.
I hope you enjoy this layout as much as I do. Happy Creating!
Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and bright layout that is also a scraplift of a gorgeous layout by our fearless leader, Gwen. I went after her signature style of a white background, bright pops of color and stitching around the border. I love that this Daisy Bough cutfile has a curve to nestle your photo right into.
You can see that I chose not to fully tack down the cutfile as I do so love the bit of dimension that you get from the shadow. I chose to use a black and white photo so that the Simple Stories “Sunkissed” collection would pop right off the page.
And here is the gorgeous layout that Gwen created:
Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and fresh layout featuring the Hexagon Frame Cut File layered over the Valentine Rose Cut Files. And look at these adorable photos of my daughter getting some fresh highlights!
I backed my Valentine Rose Cut Files with this gorgeous Summer collection by Carta Bella. The tones are just perfect and allow my photos to shine! I decided to add black and white twine around my clusters to add just a little bit more black here and there.
I am currently loving little shiny bits of flair, some splatty bits and tiny words to build out some clusters around and under my cutfiles.
