Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to show off one of the beautiful floral cut files in the shop!
For my project this week, I started by cutting the Vintage Peony Cut File. This file is a Kit to You file, so it comes with layout ideas and directions …but…when you have finished your kit instuctions, you still have this gorgeous cut file to use again and again! I cut my cut file quite large to make it a striking focus on my page. I backed it with lots of colors and popped it up on foam tape.
I printed my photo in sepia to help it stand off the background and still be the focal point of my layout.
I love how versatile this cut file is for so many uses! You get directions and the ability to make a gorgeous layout in the kit and then you have the cut file to use over and over agin in many different ways!
You can see all the available kits in the shop HERE
And here is my proces video showing how this layout came together!
Hi everyone and welcome to the CUT to YOU blog today! I’m really egg-cited (haha!!) to share my latest creation with you featuring 2 of the newer Easter cut file designs!!
I started this page with the adorable Easter Nest cut file.
And couldn’t resist recreating my own “Lindt Gold Bunny” using the cute Bunny Silhouette cut file which I backed using some of the left over gold foil from our recent partnership with Spieglemom Scraps!!
For this page I wanted to use the beautiful new freebie digital collection by Traci Reed “Here Comes the Sun” which I have printed out on a bunch of different types of papers!!
My idea was to create 3 shaker pockets with the Easter Eggs in the Easter Nest cut file for some extra fun!
I’ve hand stitched around the eggs which has given enough dimension for the sequins to move around and shake!
I do have a process video for you if you’d like to see my page come together, just click that play button and enjoy!
Have you seen the newest release? Gwen, as always, has a stunning collection of fresh new cut files for this month and my personal fave is Party Bow!! IKR, it’s gorgeous! And such a different design for me to pick as much fave but I’m thinking up a creative way I can use it 😉
Until I’m back, happy scrapping and I hope I have inspired you to maybe use multiple cut files in a project or perhaps even create a shaker pocket of your own!!
Today I’m sharing a page I’ve created using the Heart You More background cut file with a little twist! I wanted the background to come to the foreground, and so I’ve used the text in the file as my title!
I started this page by using watercolour on my background … I have colour blocked my painting to match the stripes in my patterned paper. This accentuates the effect I was going for making my title pop and helps the rest of the cut file to blend into the background.
I outlined my title using a fine liner to really make a statement of my title within the cut file. I was a little unsure about taking this step, and actually checked in with my DT girls for advice! I am really happy with how it came out, but I am also not one to worry about things being perfect on my page! I grounded the whole page with a piece of black card stock, and this again worked to accentuate the black in my title.
To finish my page off I added my photo, some other smaller puffy words, and some embellishments that tie in with the colours in the file and background. I spread these across the page above the title, and added a couple of little word strips under the title for balance.
Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure you’ve popped over to the shop to check out the latest releases.
See you again later in the month for another fun share! Big Loves, Tam xo
Hello beautiful friends! I am back with you today to share a new Design Team project with you.
I realised that I have about 3 years of Easter documenting to catch up on, and the March release from CUT to YOU, which was full of gorgeous Easter themed files, was just the push I needed to get started on getting some stories documented. I used the Easter Egg with Bow file to create this layout documenting my son’s first Easter all the way back in 2018.
You can see how I created this layout step-by-step in my process video:
And here are a few more close-up photos of my finished layout.
Thank you so much for taking the time to view my project. I hope you have a great day!
It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Easter themed layout for CUT to YOU featuring the Silhouette Bunny cut file. As soon as I saw this cut file, I knew exactly what I was going to do and had the layout already worked out in my head!! Do you ever do this?!
I enlarged the bunny design in the Silhouette software and then cut it out from white cardstock. I chose a cute pastel spotty paper to back the bunny with. Once it was backed, I added craft foam underneath and adhered it to my background paper. I layered a paper underneath the super cute photo of my son as a bunny and adhered this to the right of the bunny cut file, tucking it in so the bunny overlapped the photo.
I adhered a circle chipboard piece here also that says, ‘Bursting With Excitement’ because he really was! I fussy cut out some scallops from a pastel paper similar to the spotty one and adhered them under my photo, bending up the edges to give the layout some dimension. I wanted to ad some flairs to this layout too and grabbed out 2 from my stash, I adhered the cute bunny one to the centre of the bow in the cut file design and the Hop Hop Hop one above the photo. On the bunny cut file, I also adhered a Charm’s Creations spotted handmade heart and also typed out some journalling and cut it into strips.
My title I placed at the bottom underneath the scallops, I used a puffy alphabet and spelt out Happy Easter. Some of the final embellishments I added were some puffy shape stickers, some enamel dots, a few die-cuts and another chipboard piece. The Silhouette Bunny cut file was the perfect design for my page to go with the cute photo of my son.
Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout and that you were inspired to create an Easter project! Check out the CUT to YOU online store for more gorgeous cut files to suit your projects!
Hello Paperlovers, Welcome and thank you for stopping by at the Cut to you blog today! So excited to show you a new scrapbook layout that I made with these beautiful cutfiles.
For this layout I used the gorgeous cutfile “Posey Duo“. I cut this cutfile twice and used them as ephemera behind my photo. It looks almost as white lace.
I started with a white cardstock background. I chose a template and used my distress oxide to create a yellow mixed media background using a blending tool for this. At the end I mixed a little bit of water with distress oxide ink and made some splatters. I did the same with the white gesso. I let the mixed media dry by air.
Now I started to place the cutfile on top of the mixed media background. I cut out this cutfile twice and glued it in place as ephemera. On top of the cutfiles I place the photo which I have covered with design paper. I cut some design paper to size and placed it behind the photo to create more layers.
I am starting to decorate my scrapbook layout. For this I use various die-cuts, stickers, labels and enamel dots.Under the title “You’re my sunshine” you see tassels. I made these from design paper strips and cut them to about half size. Then I rolled them up and placed them under the title using a string. I cut two design paper strips to size and glued them to the side of this layout. With my sewing machine I make several stitches. I splash some more with the white gesso and my layout is done.
This is a quick way to create a layout. I hope you got some great inspiration and ideas. Hope to see you next time! Xoxo, Jo
Happy Easter my Crafty Peeps! It is Ali here with you on this Spring day, sharing my Easter layout using the Bunny Kisses Easter Wishes cut file. I am so excited that Spring has arrived and the Easter bunny is on his way!
The picture of me was taken on Easter day when I just got back from a girls scrapbooking trip in Utah and we were given these cute bunny ears to wear. I thought this title was perfect to go with my Easter picture. I used the new Easter/Spring line from Simple Stories called Bunnies and Blooms. I love backing up large titles with many different pattern papers. 6 x 6 paper pads are perfect for cut files if you are trying to save your larger sheets. for backgrounds.
I love adding dimension to my layouts so I always use foam tape on the back of my cut files. To add even more dimension to this page I pop dotted the tulips and used them for a bottom border of my title. It helps ground the cut file and I think it looks adorable.
I added some cute embellishments to my cut file that included this adorable foam girl bunny sticker, puffy mouse sticker and some enamel dots. I also like to add brads to the middle of my letters. You can also use enamel dots or other stickers to give your cut file some attention.
I added these love birds kissing and they are so sweet perched on top of my title. You will love using this big title cut file for your Easter layout.
I am sending everyone bunny kisses and Easter Wishes this weekend!
Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. As Easter is just around the corner, I wanted to play with some of the new Easter cut files of CUT to YOU. My task was to make a layout with a title cut file, so I chose the Some Bunny Special cut file for my layout.
I scrapped a photo of my daughter that was taken back at Easter 2017, she had a bunny ears headband on, she was just so cute! She was just trying to ride on her balance bike, which was also new, with all the accessoires a bike can have 😉
First I cut the Some Bunny cut file from white cardstock, then I started to back them with pastel coloured paper. For this I used the Flora Book 2 paper pad for fussy-cutting of Mintay Papers. This paper pad is awesome: on the one side it has beautiful florals, on the other some coordinating beautiful coloured cardstock. I chose some pastel colours and backed each line in different colours. I glued down the whole line and after waiting some seconds I started to cut out the letters using scissors and a craft knife. Then I repeated this with the next line. It was much faster this way then backing the letters one by one.
I also matted my photo with the same coloured cardstock I used for the cut file. I chose a background paper from the Better Times collection of Mintay Papers, and glued the photo on the left side of the cut file, because my daughter goes on the photo to the right.
I fussy cut lots of flowers from the Flora Book 2 paper pad, and started to decorate my layout with them. I often decorate my layouts diagonally, especially when I use a title cut file. It makes the balancing of the layout just easier.
Finally I added some chipboards of ScrapUp Scrapbook from my stash.
I hope I could inspire you to use title cut files on your layouts. They make the work so much easier, as they are big and dominant. You can find many awesome title cut files in the shop, and don’t forget to check the April Release too, you won’t regret! 😉
Hello! It’s Shannon up on the blog today. I am ever so thrilled to be bringing you my second layout as a Guest Designer for April. I just had to use the “Simply Floral Pendant” Cutfile this time! It is the perfect combination of banner pieces and flowers!
I wanted to use a collection of supplies for this layout with deeper tones so I went for deep teal, off white and burnt sienna for a color palette. I popped the entire cutfile up on some craft foam for dimension, tucked a photo of little old me up top and then added a whole heap of sequins in my flower centers!
I knew right away that I wanted to have vellum behind my photo and cutfile. I chose to tear the edges all the way around and only attached it here and there. I wanted to make sure there was plenty of dimension!
A simple title and a few enamel dots finished this layout right off!
You can watch me create this page here:
Thanks so much for allowing me to Guest Design for you this month! I had a ball!
It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new layout with you for our floral theme for this week! I chose the stunning Floral Ampersand design to create this layout. I cut the design out from white cardstock and backed the pieces behind in different patterned papers from the Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans.
This cut file is so versatile for all kinds of projects. It would also look great cut out small and not backed!
I was strategic when I backed the cut file, making sure that the large flower and the leaves could stand out. I did this by using a bright pink for the flowers and a dark green on the leaves. Once the cut file was all backed, I added craft foam underneath and adhered the cut file to the centre of another piece of white cardstock. I love the shadows and dimension this adds to my page.
I placed my photo over on the right side of the Floral Ampersand cut file design and tucked a tag behind the photo. I also overlapped a die-cut ampersand piece onto the photo on the left. This was the perfect piece to add as it was so florally and fit next to my photo perfectly.
By adding craft foam underneath the cut file design and popping it up off the page I was able to tuck lots of die-cut flowers to further enhance the floral design and theme of my page. I didn’t add too much else to the top of the cut file design as it was quite busy already, I decided to place the foam alphabet either side of the design so that it could be included in the title. Lastly I added some more die-cut pieces and phrase stickers and also added some journaling following the shape of the bottom half of the Ampersand shape.
Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout today and that you were inspired in some way. Be sure to check out the CUT to YOU store for amazing cut file designs!
