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!

Everyday is an Adventure | Kelly Pyron

Happy New Year Friends! I am so excited to share my first project for 2021! I chose the “Everyday is an Adventure” cut file from the shop, as my title piece for a layout of my precious grandlove, Emery.

I am documenting her first day back to “physical” school, as opposed to “virtual” school in 2020. I thought the title was appropriate because, we never really know whats going to happen from day to day, lately. For instance, it was only a few weeks into the school year that she had to go back to virtual learning.

I used products from several different Maggie Holmes, Crate Paper collections to embellish my page and back my cut-file. I love to use 6X6 Paper Pads for backing cut-files because the scale of the patterns is smaller and works great for smaller areas, (i.e, within a letter)

Here are a few close-ups:

Thank you for stopping by! If you would like to see the layout come together, click the link below. I wish you a very blessed New Year with many happy memories and adventures to document!

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today with a fun, bright layout to celebrate sisters!

I used two amazing cut files the shop, Loops Of Love and Besties for Life Title Cut File

I backed both cut files with some gorgeous patterns from Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Happiness collection.

I kept the embellishments simple so that I didnt take away from the cut files and photo…really let those cut files and the photo shine!

This layout was fun and easy to put together! I let the cut files do most of the work! You can see all the details on my process video –

SWEET AND SASSY | GWEN WRUCK

Hey there Creative friends! Gwen back with you today for some more Scrapbook inspiration. I hope you are ready for some bright fun Spring colours. It’s not long turned Spring here in Australia and I am so happy to be getting into some warmer weather and really enjoying creating with some bright fun colours. Today’s layout is a silly happy snap that was taken last Christmas by my daughter using one of those fun filters on her phone. I’ve teamed it with the ‘Hearts on Strings‘ cut file which I’ve cut nice and large to create a background feature for my page. Lots more details to see below.

Here is the cut file I’ve used… a really fun and simple design that was super easy to back and a fast way to get a page put together.

So, as I mentioned, the page began by cutting out the design nice and large. I’ve then taken a mix of the pattern papers from the collection and backed the hearts. I’ve not taken too much care with the colours, I was just careful to not have too many of the same colours grouped together. I’ve then placed foam tape behind the design and centred it onto my page.

Next, I’ve simply backed my photo with another pattern from the collection. It’s a really fun photo so I did want to play with the patterns on the page as well to create a fun feel for the layout. As you can see below, I’ve added my signature stitching detail to the photo as well.

To keep the design fairly simple, I’m working with my embellishment clusters positioned around the edges of the photo. I want to add this detail but I don’t want to cover up too much of the cut file in my background. It’s a bit of a balance here so I would recommend keeping that in mind when you are working with cut files as background features.

I decided on one large main cluster on the right of my photo and then two smaller ones (one on the left and one on the top) and these balance out the page nicely. I’ve really just mixed and matched elements from the collection until I was happy working largest elements to smallest.

I’ve finished off the page with the ‘Love you More’ die cut piece and a couple of fun red puffy hearts as well as these super sweet die-cut bees, so sweet!

Thanks for popping by today, I hope my page has inspired you in some way, be sure to tag me on social if it does so I can see what you have made!

Until next time,

The Sweet Life | Kelly Pyron

Hello friends! I am back with a new layout using The Sweet Life cut file.

For this layout, I am scrapping photos of my grand-love and her friend getting pedicures. This is a back-to-school tradition in the making. The past couple of years, the weekend before school starts we like to go for a little pampering. It was a fun girl’s day, for sure!

I cut The Sweet Life title extra large to make it the main element on my page. I glued the outline portion of the file directly to the cardstock and popped the actual letters up on foam tape for some added dimension. I used a white Posca paint pen to outline the edge of each letter. I think this gave the letters more definition and interest.

Here is a view of the cut file from the side, so you can see the dimension and details of the title.

I didn’t go too embellishment heavy on this layout, because the title makes a BIG statement and too many extras might make things a little too busy.

This was a fun layout to put together and I love that Gwen’s cut file designs make putting a layout together so quick and easy! If you would like to see the process video of this layout coming together, you can see it below.

I hope you have a great week and that you find a little scrappy/pampering time during this busy time of year!

STORYBOOK ADVENTURES | KELLY PYRON

Hello friends! I am sharing a layout today featuring the Book Stack Background cut file. Being the book-nerd that I am, I knew as soon as I saw this cut-file, I had to use it! I also knew the perfect photo for this layout. #winning #booksaremyjam

I cut the file on American Crafts white textured cardstock and then used several different pattern papers to back the file. Lastly, I used the offset feature in Silouhette to cut a slightly larger version of the Book Stack file in black cardstock and adhered it to give a black border. I felt like I needed to do this in order to create some contrast. Otherwise, I felt like the cut file got lost on this busy background.

I used lots of whimsical and fun elements around the page to enhance the photo and help tell my story of creating a storybook character from a pumpkin.

I just love how the die cut helped make this layout come together so quickly and easily. Using the large die cut, helped make most of my design decisions for me. It was just a matter of glue things down.

I hope you are enjoying this month long celebration and finding lots of inspiration along the way! If you would like to see how my layout came together, you can watch my process video here:
