Love This Story | Rachel Lowe

How absolutely gorgeous is the floral title/page builder This Story cut file which is a new release.


I have used an older collection by Dear Lizzy New Day collection.



I went back to my white card stock and also cut Love This Story in white as I wanted use a dark contrast paper to back the cut file. I used the Release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) so I could cut the letters separately and add with foam tape. You will note some I added without foam tape, in doing this you add visual interest and height.


I chose two different colours/patterns for the roses and added a gem stone to the centres.


I added my embellishments with foam tape also to create a 3D effect.



I added a phrase sentiment which went perfect…….Love This Story…….Love This Moment!


I added my photo (which is courtesy of IG, but I promise I have been to Paris and the colours were perfect for my layout!) and added embellishments around it which assisted to ‘frame’ it and draw your eye to it a I chose not to mat it).


I finished of by adding some light splatters of black paint. And there you have it one pretty layout of me remembering my days in Paris.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting.

You are my Everything | Michelle Stokes

Hello Hello! It’s Michelle here today with a new layout share featuring one of our fun NEW cut files released this month. As February is know for being the month of LOVE I went with a little lovey dove rainbow theme documenting my 2 loves.

We have a super sweet collection of new cut files this month, and my favourite of all is the Rainbow Love one. Perfect for documenting these 2 in their little love bubble.

I enlarged the design in silhouette studio to fill a good portion of the background paper and cut it out on white cardstock. I used multiple different pattern papers from the Dear Lizzy ‘She’s Magic’ collection to back the individual layers of the rainbow – in rainbow order of course.

Once all pieces were backed I adhered them slightly above the centre of the layout. I had planned on adding some journalling to the layout, but felt it didn’t need any once I had completed all the other elements.

I added the photo to the frame and adhered over the right of the cut file, a TONNE of foam tape was used on this layout to create different heights of dimension between all the pieces

Over on the top left I added a little cluster of elements to fill the blank space and to balance it all out. I also adhered the entire layout to a cut apart paper to give an extra pop of colours around the edge.
