You Make Me Smile|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to show off one of the beautiful floral cut files in the shop!

For my project this week, I started by cutting the Vintage Peony Cut File. This file is a Kit to You file, so it comes with layout ideas and directions …but…when you have finished your kit instuctions, you still have this gorgeous cut file to use again and again! I cut my cut file quite large to make it a striking focus on my page. I backed it with lots of colors and popped it up on foam tape.

I printed my photo in sepia to help it stand off the background and still be the focal point of my layout.

I love how versatile this cut file is for so many uses! You get directions and the ability to make a gorgeous layout in the kit and then you have the cut file to use over and over agin in many different ways!

You can see all the available kits in the shop HERE

And here is my proces video showing how this layout came together!

Have A Lovely Day!

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!

Hello Scrappy Friends, I’m back again on the blog today to share my latest layout for Cut to You. This page gives me country chic, log cabin vibes, which is perfect for where I am right now because its is rainy and miserable here!

I have used Floral Note Card Cut File as the jumping off point for this page. I loved the florals in this file so much, that I duplicated them so that I could have them at the top and bottom of my page! This gave me a really natural space to cluster and tuck my photos, and I feel like the Cut File and my photos work seamlessly together because of this.

You could do this simply by cutting this file out twice (or ordering 2 Custom Cuts), but I let the Silhouette software do the hard work for me. I opened the file in the software, duplicated it, flipped and melded the two files together. This way it all cut as one piece!

I decided to only back the petals of the flowers, as I thought the open leaves gave an interesting effect against the wood grain paper. I used a paper from PinkFresh Studios that had a lovely blue gradient, and have backed each of the flowers with a different shade of blue.

I added in some layers in and around my photos for added interest and dimension. I nestled my title and a few small embellishments around the bottom right of my photo, overlapping onto the florals, but not convering them up. I also added a very small cluster at the top right to balance this off and to establish a cohesive sight line down the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today, and make sure you pop by to the shop to pick up a couple of our latest Cut Files!

Hello beautiful friends! I am back with you today to share my second project for the Design Team this month. For this project I was challenged to create a layout using a floral cut file – totally my jam! And when the DT received the new cut files for March, I was so inspired by the Daffodil Corner Cut File that I had a completed layout in my hands within just a couple of hours!

You can see how I created this layout step-by-step in my process video:

And here are a few more close-up photos of my finished layout.

Thank you so much for taking the time to view my project. I hope you have a great day!

CUT to YOU | You Are Beautiful | Floral Camera Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. My task for today’s post was to use a floral cut file, and I chose the Floral Camera Cut File from the February Release. I took some photos of my daughter when she finally lost her second front tooth – she was very happy, beacuse it was a long process… And this cut file was a perfect match for those precious photos 🙂

First I cut the Floral Camera Cut File from white cardstock. For my layout I used the Flora No.3. collection of Carta Bella, I chose similar colours to back the florals in the cut file as in one of the cards, which I fussy-cut to create a title.

I backed the camera with a light blue patterned paper from the same collection. I printed one of the photos twice, and lifted it using a heavy cardstock, as if the camera lens was zooming on her.

I fussy cut some flowers from a patterned paper of the Flora No.3 collection and glued it under the florals of the cut file to complement it.

In order to balance the layout I added some fussy cut florals to the bottom right corner too. Finally I added my journalling. I really love how it turned out: full of flowers, as I love it!

For more beautiful floral cut files head on the CUT to YOU shop and have a look at the Florals and Nature section of the shop, but there are also gorgeous designs among the March Release! 😉

One Of A Kind | Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today with another layout featuring a beautiful Cut To You file foiled with gorgeous Fab Foil from Spiegelmom Scraps.

I used the Spring Floral Edge cut file on my layout. I love how placing it on the top of my page over my photo allowed the photo to really become a part of the layout. My niece peeking around both the tree and the cut file worked so well! Add the Antique Gold Fab Foil and it becomes a real showstopper.

I kept the rest of the layout very simple in soft colors so that the photo and cut file would be the focus.

Just a small embellishment cluster and this layout is done.

Be sure to head over to You Tube and check out my process video with all the details.. and then run over to the Cut To You shop for some fun cut files.

Have A Lovely Day!

Hi Friends! Today, I am creating with the gorgeous Geo Floral Leaves Cut File combined with some of the amazing new foils from SpiegelMom Scraps that we are creating with this month. I am absolutely in love with how easy these foils are to use with cut files and this floral one is perfect for a layout about my sister’s bridal shower!

I started off with a white cardstock background and added some inking around the edges of the paper. I then chose a bunch of different coordinating 6×8 pattered papers that I wanted to use to create an oversized photo mat. I did just a touch of mixed media by adding some stamping as well as some splatters on my background.

I then went ahead and added some lace trim under my photo that could serve as a little shelf for my title die cut word. Then, it was finally time to add my gorgeous foiled cut files. I cut them in a couple of different sizes so that I could tuck them in to different areas AND so that I could maximize my foil usage. For the largest leaf, I thought that it would be fun to cut it in both white and metallic so that I could glue them together slightly offset in order to create a layered, dimensional look…almost like a shadow!

I hope that you enjoyed my version of the geo floral cut files paired up with the gorgeous Fab foils. I really think that they created a fun look with a little more glamorous feel to match my photo!

xoxo, Khristina

Hi CUT to YOU fans! For my second layout this month I have one using my fave leaf cut file called ‘Lots of Leaves’ which can be found here in the shop. It is perfect for tucking into floral clusters which is exactly how I used it here….

I decided to use the pretty Cocoa Vanilla Studio ‘Merry and Bright’ collection as I love the colours and thought they were perfect with my photo, and it shows just how versatile it is for using with non-festive photos!

I went with the wood patterned paper for my background and edged it with distressed strips of the candy stripe cut apart strip. Then I went and fussy cut a whole sheet of flowers from one of the patterned papers…. I find fussy cutting very relaxing and it didn’t take too long as I just did it while sat in front of the TV!

Next I cut three of the ‘Lots of Leaves’ cut files in white cardstock and backed them with vellum as I wanted a soft, translucent look to them as there would be lots of colours with the flowers.

Then I attached my photo to the layout after mounting it on a piece of pastel green gingham check patterned paper. I kept it flat (rather than add foam pads) as I was going to add lots of dimension anyway with the fussy cut flowers.

I then built up two clusters of fussy cut flowers in opposite corners of the layout along with the ‘Lots of Leaves’ cut files. I played around with the positioning for a while until I was happy, then I took a photo so I can remember where they go when sticking them down!

I didn’t use much else as I felt the flower clusters didn’t need it, just a small word banner, journaling tag, some hearts and a flair button.

And finally just finished off with some journaling and then added a title using some gold Thickers from my stash…

Thanks for stopping by! Pop on over to the CUT to YOU shop to check out the latest cut file releases and if you want to get a free cut file each month make sure you sign up for the newsletter here! See you next month….

Happy Scrapping!
