The Sweetest Love | Daisy Bough Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am so happy to be sharing my latest Design Team project with you today. I have gone for yet another monochromatic look using the Daisy Bough Cut File to document this sweet little photo of my husband and daughter.

I am a real sucker for a circular design on a layout and I loved how the open circle of the Daisy Bough Cut File added a gorgeous flourish to my oversized rosette.

You can see how I created this layout in more detail in my process video below.

Here are a few more close up images of the completed layout:

Happiness | Rose Garden Frame Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am so happy to be back with you today with another Design Team project to share. For this layout I wanted something soft and sweet and the Rose Garden Frame Cut File was absolutely perfect to document this floral heavy photo.

I just love the subtle detail that the Rose Garden Frame Cut File adds to this very soft, pretty and oh-so-pink layout. If you know me, you know that this layout captures all of my favourite things! You can see how it all came together in more detail in my process video below.

Sweet Friends | Kirei Baldwin

Hi CUT to YOU fans! I’m sharing my first layout for August and this time I’m using the lovely Rosey Posey Polaroid cut file as a background piece…. you can find it here in the shop! I thought it was perfect to go with the pretty Maggie Holmes ‘Garden Party’ collection.

I firstly painted the cut file with soft shimmery pink and sparkly green watercolours. Once it was dry I backed the rose and leaves with vellum and the polaroid element with a floral patterned paper. I love the delicate look the vellum gives to the cut file, and still allows the background to peep through.

Then I used the packaging technique to add more of the pink watercolour to an 11″ x 11″ white cardstock background and when that was dry added pink and gold splatters. I stitched that down onto a 12″ x 12″ black and white zig zag patterned paper frame.

I added stick foam pads to the back of the polaroid part of the cut file and stuck it down to the background, before adding my square photo that was mounted onto one of the patterned papers.

There was a fab floral paper that I fussy cut a couple of large pink flowers from and then tucked them under both sides of my photo. They were only stuck down in the centres so that I could curl up the petals for added dimension.

Then I went through the matching embellishments and added house, butterfly, cupcake and bow stickers, puffy floral and heart stickers, gold glitter epoxy hearts and a word banner.

To finish off I added a title using the coordinating word Thickers and alpha stickers and popped some journaling just to the right side of the layout.

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today sharing my newest project featuring the Dragon Fly cut file!

I have been documenting some of our summer adventues in mini books I made including this one, all about our day at the local botanical gardens. I love to incorporate oversized cut files into my mini books! They are so striking used that way! I added beautiful ink blended wings, and backed the body with black cardstock. I added some clear glossy Nuvo drops as an accent.

I create a stamped background for my dragonfly and embellished with a few fussy cut floral elements to keep the design elegant and simple.

I love this fun,saturated, summery colors and that dragonfly is so striking!

Be sure to head over to the SHOP and check out all the summery cut files! For all the details, you can take a peek at my process video-

Have A Lovely Day!

Good Times | Daisy Bough Cutfile | Simple Stories “Sunkissed”

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and bright layout that is also a scraplift of a gorgeous layout by our fearless leader, Gwen. I went after her signature style of a white background, bright pops of color and stitching around the border. I love that this Daisy Bough cutfile has a curve to nestle your photo right into.

You can see that I chose not to fully tack down the cutfile as I do so love the bit of dimension that you get from the shadow. I chose to use a black and white photo so that the Simple Stories “Sunkissed” collection would pop right off the page.

And here is the gorgeous layout that Gwen created:

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and fresh layout featuring the Hexagon Frame Cut File layered over the Valentine Rose Cut Files. And look at these adorable photos of my daughter getting some fresh highlights!

I backed my Valentine Rose Cut Files with this gorgeous Summer collection by Carta Bella. The tones are just perfect and allow my photos to shine! I decided to add black and white twine around my clusters to add just a little bit more black here and there.

I am currently loving little shiny bits of flair, some splatty bits and tiny words to build out some clusters around and under my cutfiles.

Have the best scrappy day!

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!

Can I Get a Witness | Leaf Duo Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am so happy to be back with you today to share a new Design Team project with you. I have another wedding layout and for this one, I wanted to use a cut file to help add some subtle layering details to my page. I thought that the Leaf Duo Cut File really fit the bill, and I loved that I was able to really stretch them to tuck them into various spots around the page by trimming them down.

If you want to see how I created this layout, I’d love for you to go ahead and check out my YouTube video below:

Here are a few more close up photos of the finished layout.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Happy Day | Ribbon and Roses Cutfile | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you a layout featuring a sassy swan friend. This fellow seemed a bit perturbed that I would dare encroach upon his space. I did grab a quick photo and let him go on his way. I used the Ribbon and Roses cutfile and cut it out in a mid-weight white textured cardstock. It cut beautifully!

I decided to use all Paige Evans goodies for this project from the new “Wonder” collection. The deep orange background allows the cutfile to really pop as well as highlighting Mr. Swan’s beak. I loved backing this cutfile with a bunch of different patterned papers and centering the whole design.

I do so enjoy how the photo nestles right into the top of the ribbon! We have so many beautiful floral files in the shop, make sure you pop over and check them out!

Bloom | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this silly layout featuring my girl getting her hair all fancy! I doubled up on cutfiles this time using both the Hexagon Frame cutfile as well as the Valentine Rose cutfile. I think that they look fantastic together!

I wanted to use a gorgeous collection and Summer collection by Carta Bella doesn’t disappoint. Look at how fantastic these tones are with the Valentine Rose cutfile!

The Valentine Rose cutfile is popped up on dimensional adhesive and lots of the gorgeous floral bits from Carta Bella are tucked beneath the photo cluster as well as on the upper right. I used some gorgeous flair from Scrappin’ Happy Studio with a lemon vibe and wrapped a bit of black and white twine around them for contrast. And finally, I used some Shimmerz products for splatty bits. I’m smitten with this layout!

Y’all can see my full process here:

Happy Scrapping!
