Bunny Kisses Easter Wishes | Tamara Buckler

Hello CTY friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing a cute Easter layout with photos from earlier this year. My daughter wanted this cute bunny hat, and I knew I wanted to use some cute Easter Cut Files, so we really had a win win situation!

I started by cutting the Bunny Kisses Easter Wishes Cut File quite large and then backed each of the words with some bright Cocoa Vanilla papers to create a really happy and playful mood.

I popped the entire file up on foam tape to provide extra impact and separation from the busy background paper, and positioned it toward the bottom of my page.

This allowed to attach my photos to the top of the page, slightly overlapping the top of the Cut File. With the Cut File being so big and bright, I didn’t need to do a lot to embellish the page, just tucking in a few fun bits and pieces in around my photos.

I love how this all came together. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Until next time, 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.⁣⁠

Happy Easter | Bunny Silhouette | Tarrah McLean

Hi crafty friends and Happy Easter!

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?!

Bunny Silhouette cut file

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!

Happy creating!

Hey Bunny | Ali Skifton

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!

Love, Ali xoxo

Easter | Ali Skifton

Hi my Crafty Peeps! It is Ali here with you today sharing an Easter layout using the Bunny Silhouette Digital Cut File. This picture was taken last year of my parents coming over to our house to drop off an Easter basket. Due to Covid, we were not able to spend Easter together and it broke my heart. I was missing my parents and they surprised us by coming over and staying outside to give us bunny kisses and Easter wishes.

I am so excited to share with you a little trick I just taught myself with the Silhouette Cameo. I knew I wanted to have two bunnies on my layout and I wanted them to face each other. If you go into the Silhouette library and go to the tool bar there is a replicate button and you can mirror your original image and have two bunnies for the price of one.

I had so much fun creating these bunnies with the cute Simple Stores new Easter line. I backed up the bunnies with the fun different papers and added brads for their eyes and a cotton ball for their cute little fluffy tails.

I broke out my fringe scissors to cut the grass and layered 2 rows together. I stitched the bottom of the grass and tucked in an Easter basket and a couple eggs. I decorated the rest of the layout with stickers.

Go check out the cute Easter and Spring cut files in the shop! I will be doing another Easter layout post next month. So start hopping and get crafting with all these new cut files that Gwen has created.

Happy Spring!

Love, Ali xoxo

EASTER FUN | GWEN WRUCK

Hi Creative Friends,

Gwen with you today, back on the blog with a fun Easter themed share. Here in Australia, it is Easter Sunday and for my family, that means an Easter Egg Hunt! This photo was taken of my daughter when she was much littler and I just love how it captures the feel of our Easter mornings. Her running around in her pyjamas on the hunt for eggs; so much fun!

For my page, I’ve used the ‘Lily of the Valley‘ cut file. I’ve had this one on my list to use for some time now and I just love how the page turned out and how fitting it is for an Easter themed layout.

To start my page, I began by cutting out two of the cut files in the same size. I then went about backing the flowers in each. I’ve gone with a soft pattern paper from the new Paige Evans ‘Bloom Street’ collection. I’ve then gone ahead and backed the leaves in both of the files with a bold green print from the same collection. I’ve also used this as a border around my page edge for contrast.

Next, as the files are quite large, I wanted to lock in their position and that of the photo. I have backed the photo in a baby pink paper from the collection and then some white card stock from my stash. I’ve overlapped the two files slightly and trimmed off one of the large leaves and then re-positioned that hiding the cut piece underneath my photo.

I’ve popped everything on foam tape and locked into position so it was now time to embellish.

I’ve popped everything on foam tape and locked into position so it was now time to emI have really stuck with the collection on this one, adding in some floral elements and the pretty butterflies. I also found some Epoxy Flairs from Scrappin Happy Studio (Etsy) in my stash that were perfect, so I’ve added those as well.

It was at this point that I thought the layout might be finished, but it was missing something. I felt that it really needed a title. I pulled some ‘Thickers’ from my stash and add in my title ‘Easter Fun’. I wouldn’t normally add a title so late in the design, but I’m so glad I did as it really did round out the page perfectly. I was lucky my photo had some white space for it to fit!

I’ve added in some enamel dots and puffy gold hearts at this point and then called the page complete. I hope this has inspired you to make an Easter inspired page or use our ‘Lily of the Valley’ cut file, it really is a pretty one! As always, whatever you make, please be sure to share it with me on social, I get a real kick out of seeing your projects you can tag me at #cuttoyou @cut_to_you.

Until next time,

Sweet Easter Treats 2019 | Melinda Sweetman

Hello there CUT to YOU family, Melinda here with you today sharing a sweet Easter 2019 layout that I created.

I’ve used 2 Easter cut files from last year and they are Easter Basket Background and Easter Blessings (extra eggs!!) and they are so adorable!!

First up I cut the Easter Basket pretty big using one of the new Legendary by Cocoa Vanilla Studio pattern papers.

After that cut I realised all the bits would be in dark brown wood grain!! This was not the look I wanted so went back into Silhouette Studio to do some cropping and fiddly changes. I did record this process for you so scroll further down for the full process video. But I cut that in smooth white cardstock and overlaid that onto the first cut I did.

I also had my Cameo cut the backing pieces for the basket, the bow and the eggs in the basket which you can also see in my video! Though it was fiddly and somewhat time consuming it was so easy to just add glue and stick rather than trace, cut, stick, trim!

I had done the bulk of my design work in Silhouette Studio so I knew where my main elements were going. I chose this gorgeous CVS pattern paper “Radiant” from the More Than Words collection for my background as I loved the pastel rainbow stripes and my basket looked so good on it! I’ve used all CVS papers to back my cut files too – from a bunch of different collections. In fact, there are 4 different collections here and I love how well they all work together!

Because most of the design work was done I was able to stick down all my pieces pretty much straight away and get onto the last bits of putting this page together. I started with my title which I used some yellow thickers for and some pink puffy alpahs. The thickers were a bit too bright so I smudged some white gesso over the top to bring the colour back down a little.

Using a punch from my stash in an egg shape I created 2 smaller clusters to compliment what I already had on the page. And I topped those little clusters with a little bunny shape punched from more pattern paper.

Finally to finish off my page I added in my journalling in grey pen, some puffy heart stickers and some white splatters. You can see my whole process in the video below and I do hope you enjoy!

I really love how this page came out, it’s not often I will say “better than I envisioned” but I will with this one! I love these 2 gorgeous cut files, available here and here in the store, and the soft Easter/Spring (though Easter is Autumn here in AU lol) feel to the page!

Until next time, happy scrapping and I hope that this weekend, even if you are in isolation and had to change plans, you are with those you love the most, enjoying time together and that the Easter Bunny visits you this Sunday!!

Easter Blessings | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hello there, Piroska is here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. April is here (can’t believe it!) and Easter is coming. In Hungary there are many fun Easter traditions: on Easter Sunday the parents hide some chocolate eggs, bunnies in the courtyard in the grass (or in the flat), and say, the Easter Bunny has brought them. On Easter Monday the boys come to sprinkle the girls with perfume or water. My father used to wake me up with a glas of water on this day! 😛 The sprinkling is essential for not fading like a flower, they say. The girls, in return, give them hand-painted eggs and treat them well with home made cakes and some drink. (it can have negative effects next day 😛 )

I chose a photo of my daughter looking for some sweets hidden in the grass by the Easter bunny. For this layout I paired the Easter Blessings cut file with the Trio Flower Add On Cluster cut file.

I used the Happiness collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio for my whole layout.

First I cut the Easter Blessings cut file from smooth white cardstock, then started backing them with several patterned papers from the 6×6 paper pad. I cut 2 of the flowers from the Trio Flower Add On Cluster cut file, I used different patterned papers as I was not sure.

First I wanted to use a softer background, but didn’t like it, so changed it to this darker one.

I arranged everything to create a line design.

I added the cut flowers and the fussy-cut butterflies, and was ready.

I hope you liked my inspiration and make similar layouts with your old or new Easter photos! Do show it in the CUT to YOU Facebook group if you do! And now, have a look at the Spring & Easter section in the shop 😉
