CUT to YOU | Unique | Sweetheart Banners Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest scrapbook layout for CUT toYOU. In February we have great collaboration with Spiegelmom-Scraps, you could already have seen many gorgeous inspirations with the amazing Fab Foil. As I show you my layout, I’m going to tell you what not to do when using a Fab Foil… Interested? Then read along 😉

First of all: watch the great How to? video of Sara Scraps and do what she says. If she says you should use a smooth cardstock, then don’t try to turn the textured cardstock over to think it’ll do, because it won’t… The first mistake I’ve made.

After getting some bits and pieces of leftover smooth white cardstock (I ran out of them, I blame the pandemic), I began to release the silver Fab Foil of Spiegelmom Scraps and adhere it to the smooth cardstock. Take your time, if you don’t want to get bubbles. The second mistake I’ve made.

When I was ready, I started to cut out the Sweetheart Banners Cut File from the February Release. I used the settings Sara advised in her video: Heavy Coverstock, Blade 7, 2 passes. It cut out and came down easily from the cutting mat, but for the next time I should use a new blade, as the edges are not as smooth as I wished… The third and last mistake I’ve made… ;-P

For my background I used a watercolour paper and used some Catherine Pooler ink pads (Drive-In, Sauna) for watercoloring, the purple color is from the Prima Watercolor Confections Pastell Dreams Set. I backed the cut file with some patterned papers of the Bohemian Dreams collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio. I chose the Beautiful Mess paper as a frame for my layout, so I chose colours to match that patterned paper.

I matted my photo, and fussy cut some hearts from the Gypsy Heart paper and added them colour-matching on the background. Finally I coloured the title with the Drive-In ink pad and the purple watercolour I used for the background.

It hope I could inspire you to try this Fab Foil, beacuse it’s an awesome product! Inspite my failures I would like to make some more layouts with it 😀 So get some new cut files from the shop, order the foils from Spiegelmom Scraps and start creating with Fab Foils! 😉

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!

Shine Bright | Tarrah McLean

Hi crafty friends! Its Tarrah back with you today to share a new layout created for an awesome collaboration between CUT to YOU and Spiegel Mom Scraps!

Spiegel Mom Scraps has recently come out with some gorgeous foil called Fab Foils! It is so easy to use and it adds a gorgeous shiny, shimmery effect to cut files, die-cuts, you can even emboss it. No need for any extra machine with this foil!

First thing to do was to adhere the foil to the cardstock, you have to do this process a little slowly to make sure there are no bubbles in the foil. I then loaded the cardstock and foil into my Cameo. I decided to cut out 3 different sized diamonds from the Too Glam cut file design. The Cameo cut through both perfectly.

Too Glam cut file

I chose the diamond shape cut file design because I thought by adding the foil it would give it that extra bit of shine, I love how the diamonds turned out! I backed the largest and smallest with a soft pink paper and the medium sized one with a black and white stripe paper. Once the diamond shapes were backed, I added craft foam underneath each one and adhered them to my background paper starting from the largest to the smallest.

In the close up image below you can really see the shine from the silver foil. Its so pretty and just enhances the design so much more. I chose to title my page, ‘Shine Bright’, I used some older Thickers from my stash and placed it under my photo. The photo for this layout is of my 2 gorgeous nieces, I just adore these girls to pieces. I miss them terribly as they live in England but we video call as much as we can.

I love to layer embellishments right on top of cut files, I have added some chipboard words, resin stars, stickers and a Charms Creations X and O. I also added a mini black and white fabric bow.

I hope you enjoyed my layout today?! Don’t forget to check out the awesome Fab Foils over at Spiegel Mom Scraps and stop by the CUT to YOU store for gorgeous cut files for all projects.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy creating!
