Moments Captured| Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,
Welcome to the blog of Cut to you! So happy you stopped by! I had the opportunity to create another beautiful layout with these amazing cut files! The theme is floral and I chose the following two cut files “Daisy Trio” and “Flower Crown

I grab a white cardstock sheet. I start making a mixed media background and for that I use Distress Oxide “mowed lawn” using a clear stamp that already looks like a stain. I stamp some ink on the clear stamp and spray it a little bit wet with water and then stamp several times on the cardstock. This is how I create a watercolor look.

When I’m done stamping I make some more splatters with the distress oxide for a more festive look. I also use some white gesso and make splatters on the background. I let it dry by air. I grab the sewing machine and stitch several circles on the background.
I backed up the “Flower crown” cutfile with different types of design paper and placed it along with the “Daisy Trio” (that I cut out several times) on the mixed media background!

I cut patterned papers to size and place it behind the photo to create some more layers. I adhere the photo with 3D foam tape. I choose several flowers and playfully slide them between the cutefiles. I am happy how it turned out.

Between the flowers and the cutfiles I place word strips a rosette and butterflies. At the top of this layout I placed a perspextives Title “Moments Captured” and at the bottom of this page I added design strips and make some more stitching around the edges with the sewing machine.

Now that my layout is done I am happy with the result. I hope I was able to inspire you with this layout and look forward to seeing you again next time on the blog!

Have a great and crafty day!
XoXo,
Jo

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

Oh Snap| I love to craft|Doodle frames|by Josefine

Hello Paperlovers, Welcome to the Cut to You blog today! So happy to see you… It’s Josefine here showing you a new mixed media layout using the gorgeous title “Oh Snap” and the beautiful “Doodle Frames

First I started creating the background on the white cardstock. I applied some distress Oxide with a acrylic shape stamp that looks like a stain (or splatter) The colors that I used are “Worn Lipstick” and “Picked Raspberry” With a brush I applied a little bit water to the ink on my acrylic stamp for a more watercolor effect on my background.

When the Distress Oxide on my background is dry I stamp again with another background stamp. (look at the photo) In this way I create more dimension in my mixed media background. At the end I made some spletters with the Distress Oxide colors. I backed up my cutfile with design paper and made 3D alphas from the same design paper. I color the edges of the Alphas with distress oxide and attach them with 3D foam on the cutfile as well using some pink thread.

Now we started decorating my scrapbook page. First I placed my the Doodle Frames Cut File on my layout, which I had foiled gold using the beautiful foil from Spiegelmoms. Then I placed my title ” Oh Snap” on top of the golden frames using some 3d Foam so I can make layers under this cutfile.

I cut some design paper to size and put it behind the photo. Then I slide my Photo a litte bit under the cutfile title and decorating it further with die-cuts, cardstock stickers, word strips, acrylic shapes and puffy hearts.

With different Alphas I made my title “Oh snap I love to Craft” love how that turned out! I grab my Acrylic paints and made some splatters with some different colors like Purple, light green, pink, orange and of course white gesso! So this page looks more festive! I had a lot of fun creating this layout with the beautiful cutfiles! I hope that I have inspired you a little bit with this festive layout! Have a lovely and creative day! XoXo, Jo
