Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. As Spring is coming on the Northern Hemisphere, I feel the desire to use more colours on my scrapbook layouts, so I combined the Heart You More Background Cut File with rainbow colours. I chose a photo of my daughter and me from last year, when she asked for a selfie on the couch – we’ve spent so much time at home last year, that couch selfies are definetely a thing! 😛
First I cut the Heart You More Background Cut File from white cardstock and chose the Good Vibes patterned paper from the Happiness collection of Cocoa Vanilla Studio for backing it. I followed the colours of the patterned paper.
When I was ready, I glued it onto a white cardstock, and cut 1-1 cm from both sides. I cut two stripes from the Good Vibes paper and glued them on the left and right side to make it 12″ again. I also added machine stitching to them.
I placed my photo in the bottom right corner and added some stickers and a die cut to it. I also made a little cluster in the left corner above to balance the layout.
I think this colourful layout with these many hearts doesn’t need any more decorations, sometimes a cut file is just enough 😉
I pulled colors from the photo and then created 1/2″ strips of patterned paper that I fringed and laid on the center cirle starting from the bottomworking my way up. I used y measuring mat as my guide.
One they were all adhered, I then trimmed around the circle leaving a very small border as to not overlap the edges.
It was hard to cover up all the fun fringes, but I felt that it was just too plain without adding some fussy cut flowers and other embellishments.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Check out all the awesome files in the store! You can also find more inspiration by visiting the Cut to You HQ facebook page. See you there! 🙂
I wanted to add some depth to the flowers, so I cut this area twice. I added the patterned paper underneath the first layer, and then added the extra floral section with a tiny bit of glue to a few areas to hold it in place.
To frame the page, I just added some floss. A couple of stitched areas, die cuts along with some quick doodling adds whimsy to the layout.
Word stickers along the top of the heart also keep this layout light and fun.
I just adore this darling girl and this cut file is such a delightful way to document her.
