It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new layout featuring the awesome Geo Triangles cut file. The geometric cut files by CUT to YOU are perfect for boy themed pages! I used the Teen Spirit collection by Echo Park with the cut file.
I decided to cut the Geo Triangles cut file design out from black cardstock for a change, I also intended on turning the design so that the triangles were vertical. Black cardstock cut files really suit boy pages especially when the cut file is backed with some bright papers! Once the design was cut out, I picked lots of different papers to back the triangles with.
Once the cut file was all backed, I adhered it to a plain sheet of white cardstock using double sided tape. I often adhere cut files up with craft foam however with the thin lines in this one, I decided to lay it flat. This way it also gives me the option to machine stitch if I wanted to.
I placed the photo of my youngest son slightly on the left of the page to allow for a title in the centre and some embellishments on the left of the photo too. I also didn’t want to cover up too much of the cut file design with the awesome papers backed behind it. I kept most of the embellishing to a minimum adding just a few die-cuts and stickers, some wood veneer stars and a flair button.
Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my boy page as much as I enjoyed creating it! I hope you are inspired to grab some awesome cut files like the Geo Triangles one and create some awesome projects!
I started by cutting it from white cardstock around 10 inches across but then decided not to back it (which is something quite different for me!) I wanted to use the file as a background feature to add some subtle texture so I just glued it down as it was!
I decided to pair the cutfile with some papers from Pinkfresh Studio’s Super Cool range as the green was a perfect match to my son’s jumper! I used the grey striped paper as my background paper and then fussy cut some of the polaroid frames to create a banner across the page.
I added adhesive foam behind the polaroid frames and photo and added some Cardstock stickers to embellish, tucking them in in different places.
I used an acrylic title in a light blue to match the layout and then added a few black splatters to break up the white space.
I love how this turned out and I loved using the cut file to add subtle detail.
There are lots more cut files like this in the shop, so be sure to check them out here.
Hi everyone! I hope you have all had an amazing INSD weekend! It’s my turn on the blog today sharing this cute page!
This is Bella, our puppy. We got her in September last year for some company for me at home and that’s what inspired the title – I really am so thankful to have her. Dogs really can do wonders for our mental health!
I started with the Geo Triangle Cutfile which I cut from white Cardstock and then backed with a variety of the pink shades from the Happiness Collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.
I left a couple of the triangles empty so that I could tuck some of the floral ephemera into them. I added foam tape to the back of the cutfile to add some dimension before sticking it on to a sheet of white cardstock.
I printed my photo 3×4 in black and white and added some more pink layers along with some of the navy hearts paper. I added foam to the back of the photo for even more dimension.
I added my title in the bottom right corner and then added lots of lovely ephemera pieces and a small cluster at the top left too.
I love how it turned out! You can find this cutfile and sooooooooo many more in the shop and be sure to sign up for the newsletter as Gwen sends out two free cutfiles each month!
Hello scrappy friends! I generally shy away from geometric designs, no reason, they just don’t speak to me as a whole, but when I saw this fabulous Geo Traingles Background cut file I knew I would have to find a way to use it!
As I was filling in the background, I knew that I wanted it to be bold, yet not distracting from the sweet photo of my pets, so using some large prints as focal points along with mixing smaller prints with lighter colors was key.
Finishing off with a trio of smple clusters keeps the eye moving and adds some visual interest.
I hope that you have been inspired by my layout to create! Head over to the store and start creating!
