Joy | Christmas Joy cut file | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends! It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Christmas themed scrapbook layout featuring the awesome Christmas Joy cut file. As you can tell in my layout, I didn’t not use much of the cut file on my page at all! I ended up cutting most of it up and opting for just the one word title for this layout.

I firstly cut the entire cut file out from white cardstock and then decided it was a little bit big for what I wanted it for. I did want to include a few embellishments on this layout so by cutting up the cut file, it allowed me to use some if the embellishments without making the page look too busy. I backed the cut file with a gorgeous red paper, I love how this makes the cut file stand out. I also love layering things on tip if cut files, I took one of the circle die-cuts and popped it up with foam tape in the centre of the ‘O’ of Joy.

I placed my photo slightly towards the left of my page and then layered the Joy title to the right of the photo, slightly overlapping onto the photo. Above the title I placed some ephemera pieces and an enamel dot. To the right of the title I placed a flair button, a heart and a phrase sticker. Below I added the Christmas title and also a pretty fabric bow. A few more phrase stickers added here also help tell the story.

Underneath my photo, I layered a cardstock frame, added a Charm’s Creatiom arrow to the left of the photo and layered a circle die cut on top. I pooped up the Fa La La La pennants with foam tape and adhered this at the bottom of the photo. Lastly I stamped the date sta pplpmp to finish my layout.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout as much as I enjoyed creating it?!

Joy | Christmas Joy | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends,

It’s Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new Christmas themed layout featuring the awesome Christmas Joy cut file.

I cut the entire design out from white cardstock and then backed the design with a red patterned paper to help it pop. While I was backing the cut file design, I decided to cut it down so that only half of the cut file would be used.

I adhered the cut file to the bottom half of the plain white cardstock background using craft foam to lift it up from the background. Above the cut file design, I adhered my photo also using craft foam. I layered a grey coloured paper doily and a tag here also. On the right of my photo, I added another smaller tag. I trimmed down the white cardstock and then placed some phrases top and bottom. I then backed the entire white cardstock background to a black patterned paper from the Christmas collection I chose for this layout.

You can see in the detail photos the shadows created on the page by using craft foam underneath the cut file. I love how this looks and gives lots of dimension. I included some embellishments on top of the cut file design, including the super cute wood veneer reindeer with the enamel dot red nose, some more enamel dots in various colours, a wood veneer star, a black fabric bow and 2 gorgeous flair buttons that matched the theme and colours perfectly and some phrase die-cuts.

I love title cut file designs like the Christmas Joy one as they take all the guess work out of choosing a title and because they take up lots of room on the page, you only have so many choices where to add your photo and embellishments which in my opinion makes creating quicker!
