Autumn Walks | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans! Kirei here with my latest layout using the new Autumn Acorns cut file which you can find here in the shop. It is just perfect for my photo of us out on our regular walks around our local area during Autumn, love the trees changing colour!

I cut the Autumn Acorn cut file quite large as I wanted to make it a feature on my layout.

I backed all of of the cut file with patterned paper raised on sticky foam pads. But then wanted to really emphasise the acorns so filled the inner with lots of tiny gold star sequins and gold flat backed pearls. Love the sparkle it adds!

For my background I trimmed down a sheet of white cardstock, distressed the edges and stuck to a dark green patterned paper frame. Then I added a few stitches around each edge.

I sprayed a fine rose gold mist over the background so that it wasn’t too white on white.

From here it was pretty quick…. mounted my photo on a couple of coordinating patterned papers then stuck down with a couple of tags popping out of the top.

I added just a few leaf embellishments from Paige Evans Bungalow Lane collection, it didn’t really need much more as the cut file was like one large embellishment!

Then I finished off with my title and journaling.

Crazy Love|by Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,

Thank you so much for stopping by at the Cut to You blog! It’s Josefine here sharing a new scrapbook layout with you. My challenge for today’s layout was to “use a black cutfile” so I chose a safe one to cut out, and I have used it as my title. The file is called “Crazy love Circle”

I grabbed white cardstock as my base because it looks so good with against my black “Crazy love” title. I then cut a design paper to 6 inches, and this will be the bottom half of my page. I then used my sewing machine to sew stitches around my page.

I stamped the center of my page with yellow shimmer paints (Inklingz) using my clear background stamp for that. It’s a mixed media technique that I use a lot in my work. See also my videos on Youtube. I love this simple and convenient technique to create a beautiful background. I decided to cut the photo in the shape of a circle to fit inside my title, and I also cut a circle out of the design paper that I wanted to use behind the photo. I used a circle cutter to do this.

With my sewing machine I sewed around the edges of the design paper circle and I placed it in the center of this page with the photo on top. Now I started with the title “Crazy Love Circle” that I have already cut with my Cricut Maker. I put everything in place and I started to glue the words one by one.

I fussy cut different flowers from the design paper and glue them around the photo. I made three paper roses and placed them under the photo with several die-cuts. I decorate the page with some hearts and my layout is finished! I had a lot of fun making this scrapbook layout! Hope you had a lot af fun reading my blog today! I want to thank you for stopping by today on the Cut to You blog and wish you a beautiful and creative day!

XoXo, Jo
