CUT to YOU | Love You More | Heart You More Background Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. As Spring is coming on the Northern Hemisphere, I feel the desire to use more colours on my scrapbook layouts, so I combined the Heart You More Background Cut File with rainbow colours. I chose a photo of my daughter and me from last year, when she asked for a selfie on the couch – we’ve spent so much time at home last year, that couch selfies are definetely a thing! ๐Ÿ˜›

First I cut the Heart You More Background Cut File from white cardstock and chose the Good Vibes patterned paper from the Happiness collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio for backing it. I followed the colours of the patterned paper.

When I was ready, I glued it onto a white cardstock, and cut 1-1 cm from both sides. I cut two stripes from the Good Vibes paper and glued them on the left and right side to make it 12″ again. I also added machine stitching to them.

I placed my photo in the bottom right corner and added some stickers and a die cut to it. I also made a little cluster in the left corner above to balance the layout.

I think this colourful layout with these many hearts doesn’t need any more decorations, sometimes a cut file is just enough ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope I could inspire you to use such background cut files as a highlight of your layout. Go to the shop and get some of the new cut file designs or some amazing background cut files for your next projects! ๐Ÿ˜‰

CUT to YOU | You Are Beautiful | Floral Camera Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. My task for today’s post was to use a floral cut file, and I chose the Floral Camera Cut File from the February Release. I took some photos of my daughter when she finally lost her second front tooth – she was very happy, beacuse it was a long process… And this cut file was a perfect match for those precious photos ๐Ÿ™‚

First I cut the Floral Camera Cut File from white cardstock. For my layout I used the Flora No.3. collection of Carta Bella, I chose similar colours to back the florals in the cut file as in one of the cards, which I fussy-cut to create a title.

I backed the camera with a light blue patterned paper from the same collection. I printed one of the photos twice, and lifted it using a heavy cardstock, as if the camera lens was zooming on her.

I fussy cut some flowers from a patterned paper of the Flora No.3 collection and glued it under the florals of the cut file to complement it.

In order to balance the layout I added some fussy cut florals to the bottom right corner too. Finally I added my journalling. I really love how it turned out: full of flowers, as I love it!

For more beautiful floral cut files head on the CUT to YOU shop and have a look at the Florals and Nature section of the shop, but there are also gorgeous designs among the March Release! ๐Ÿ˜‰

CUT to YOU | A Love Like Gnome Other | Melinda Sweetman

Hello CUT to YOU family and welcome to the blog tody for my first February post!! I am so, so, so excited to be sharing this page with you!

So, as you can see, I have used the oh so fun and adorable brand new Gnome cut files! I seriously love these so, so much!! First up that title – “A Love Like Gnome Other“.

And the other is, of course, “Mr & Mrs Gnome“, aren’t they just adorable?!

I’m sure you noticed too all of that gorgous gold foil!! That is the stunning new “Fab Foils” from Spiegelmom Scraps. This month we are collaborating Fab Foils & Cut Files for some shiny fun!!

This foil adds so much pop to a project and, once you get the hang of applying it, it is so easy to work with! As you can see I’ve used it here to back parts of Mr & Mrs Gnome and also to add in the letters for the title.

Now, because I like to challenge myself (apparently lol) I have also decided to play along with one of this months CSI challenges!

I was inspired by the colour palette, the theme of love, the idea of writing my journalling in letter format and those little pops of black in the doodled type images.

I have a process video for you which is linked below to show just how this page came together and I do hope you enjoy!

Have you checked out all of the gorgeous new release cut files for Feb yet? Which is your fave? Or perhaps you were like me and just HAD to cut Mr & Mrs Gnome IMMEDIATELY?! Either way, I hope that this inspires you in some way!! So many options with this share lol

I have already got a start on my next share and can’t wait to share that with you but until then, happy scrapping and I’ll see you soon!
Mel
