I Heart You | Kelly Pyron

I had some adorable photos of my grand baby and knew the I Heart You cut file was the perfect title to go with my photos.

I cut the title on white textured cardstock and backed it with some solid cardstock in two shades of coral. I popped it up on foam adhesive and paired it with this color blocked background paper from Felicity Jane.

I grabbed some embellishments that have been sitting in my stash for a long time and challenged myself to get them used up. Vellum embellishments always seem to be a struggle for me to use, but I was determined to find a way to get them on this page! So, I just did what I love to do. I layered them! I used them as a base and added lots of other elements on and around them to create embellishment clusters.

And ta-da! I was able to use up almost all of the vellum embellishments and am really pleased with the outcome!

Thank you for stopping by the blog today and checking out my project! I hope you are able to find some time to scrap this week. Be sure to stop by the Cut to You shop and browse through all the new goodies. You are bound to find something to spark inspiration!

Let Your Dreams be Your Wings| Kelly Pyron

Happy Spring! This is my favorite season, mostly because of all the new flowers and the earth is coming alive once again! I created this layout of my oldest daughter in celebration of the new season! I used the Daisy Bough cut file as starting point.

I really wanted the cut file to take center stage for my embellishments. I wanted to back the cut file, but I didn’t want to add any busy-ness to the background, so I decided to use vellum. Only, I realized I had run completely out of vellum. Not one to give up easily on an idea, I decided to I improvise! I had several large glassine bags, which I cut apart and used to back the cut file. I love that you can get a peek of the beautiful paper underneath but the cut file still takes center stage. Next , I lined the cut file with sticklers to really make the cut file pop.

I fussy cut elements from the Asuka collection and layered them around the photo and cut file. Lastly, I added some diamond sequins around as a finishing touch.

This was such a fun layout to create! I hope you enjoy it and find a little inspiration! Be sure to check out all the new cut-files in the shop!

Happy Place | Raechelle Bellus

Hello scrappy friends! I hope June finds you in good spirits! 🙂 The weather is just starting to warm up where I am located which is super exciting for me.

Today I’m sharing a layout created with two cut files- Scallop Banners and the Floral Boquet Set. I selected these two cut files along with the overall color scheme from the design of my granddaughters swimming suit.

I added small amounts of ink to the background to provide an illusion of water and then laid the scallop strips down randomly. A few stitches here and there add some dimension.

I then placed the backed cutfiles over the photo and finished off with some bright words and fun accents.

Doubling up on cut files is super fun and creates an extra exciting layout. I do hope you’ll try and share your work in the Cut to You HQ facebook group. 🙂

Celebrate Happy Times | Meggy Blethen

Hello CUT to YOU fans! I am back today with a very special layout. I don’t know about you but I absolutely LOVED all of the new release floral cut files this month so I knew I had to make a layout using them.

That is exactly what I did with this layout of my scrappy bestie and I, having a fun night out celebrating her birthday. At first I thought I’d only use one of the florals from the release but I had them all sitting out on my desk when I started making my layout and they all looked so pretty. I decided the layout needed all of them

I wasn’t sure if I’d like using 3 different flowers on a layout, but in the end I think it looks amazing. I really love how the clusters frame the photo!

I also added some fussy cut florals from an Auburn Lane patterned paper.

I wanted the cut files to stand out against the background so I used a green patterned paper to back the leaves on each flower and then a pretty pink with gold pattern paper for the flower itself.

I had also cut out the ‘Happy Times’ cut file to use as a title and I absolutely love how that looks with the gold alpha as part of it.

I used one of the flowers from the Daisy Trio cut file to add a little pop behind the word ‘Celebrate’ in the title.

For this cluster under the title I cut off some of the leaves from the Rosey Posey cut file and added them as another embellishment. I love how it looks!

Thanks for stopping by today! I have a process video for you to watch on my youtube channel below:

Take Photos | Michelle Stokes

Hello scrappy friends its Michelle here today. I have a new layout to share with you all featuring some of our brand new floral designs released this month. I’ve used both the Floral Bouquet set and Floral Bouquet frame to create this sweet layout of Leila on her 1st birthday.

I chose both the frame and individual bouquet set to combine together as I wanted to layer the larger florals over the top of the frame and create something similar to a shadow box. To do this I enlarged the frame to just over 9 inches in silhouette studio and erased the outer edge border so that it created a larger inner frame around the page. I resized the large floral from the bouquet set to a slightly smaller size than the largest floral piece of the frame then cut all the pieces out on white cardstock.

I cut the separate piece of florals twice so that I could make use of both the flowers and leaf stems in different ways. Once I had all the pieces cut individually I backed the main frame and extra flowers vellum and left the extra leaf stems untouched

I adhered the extra flower pieces to the frame using tiny amounts of foam tape and bent the leaf stems for extra dimension before adhering with tacky glue.

I chose a super sweet photo of Leila from her first birthday and brought it all together with the stunning Unforgettable collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio. The perfect accompaniment to the floral cut files

I layered the cardstock frame with a floral wreath pattern paper to make it look like one big cluster of florals and tucked in extra ephemera to compliment the cut files

I added a little extra piece to the edge of the photo that was from the bottom of the frame and would have been hidden from sight.

Lastly a massive splattering of gold colour shine and some enamel dots and I thought it was complete. I tried to work out a large title for the layout, but felt it would overpower the softness of the white on white cut files and all the pretty florals.

Well thats all from me today, Thanks so much for stopping by!
