And here is what I created! I have used Echo Park Teen Spirit Girl collection.Untitled-47Firstly I cut the Let’s party title in white, I resized it so it would fit my page design. I used the ‘release compound’ function of my Silhouette Cameo which allowed me to seperate my letters and cut them individually. I used foam tape to adhere as I wanted to create a 3D effect.F75EAB72-C469-4808-AE38-48D37273096AI then embellished around and on my title so your eye is drawn here, again I have used foam tape on my embellishments to create a 3D effect. Don’t be afraid to used embellishments on your cut files, here I added the rainbow and it adds more of a wow look!7648FBA0-ACF9-431E-A8AA-B809598FEDA6I added my 6×4 inch photo portrait under the Let’s Party cut file, in the centre and again I added with foam tape. I did not mat my photo, instead adding some cute emoji stickers under the photo. As I have two feature embellishment clusters I didn’t mat my photo as I didn’t want my layout to look ‘too busy’.B9AD3746-996F-40EB-BBF9-5DA0E5213D50Now what is better than one super cute unicorn, two right! I used the Mirror function on my Silhouette Cameo which essentially allows you to flip cut file images, which allowed my unicorns to be facing each other.AE33444C-BC92-4B6E-9711-C5475AC2B90CI again using the release compound function so I could cut the different parts of my unicorn in different papers. I added a little gold to finish her off.68B3C278-894E-4224-A0DF-45243D884E71I added them with foam tape under my photo finished off with a sentiment sticker…..

Lets Party | Michelle Stokes

Hello fellow Crafters! It’s Michelle here today with my very first layout share for CUT to YOU! I am so unbelievably EXCITED to be here sharing my work with you all, so lets get straight into it..

As this month is the very first birthday for Cut to You I thought I’d create something that follows along with that theme, and ties in with our newest Inspiration Board. Such a sweet colour palette to create with. So Inspiring!

There are a couple of new files this month that are PERFECT for documenting a birthday theme, in particular the BALLOONS, and newsletter Freebie for July – LETS PARTY text. I thought these designs would work wonderfully with the sweet photo of my daughter Leila from her first birthday party.

I started the layout by creating the large title using the LETS PARTY text (shown below) and resized it to approximately 8.5×4.5 inches in Silhouette Studio, then cut it out on white cardstock. Next I cut the backing piece out of pattern paper by only choosing the outline of the cut file. I find this is the easiest way to back a cut file if you’re only using 1 pattern paper.

I also added some more sparkly gold glitter and a complimentary pattern paper to these hearts.

Next I worked on the balloons by following the same techniques as I did with the title piece. Resizing and cutting the main file using white cardstock, editing the file in Silhouette Studio to only show the main outlines and re-cutting using the gold glitter paper to back the detailed parts of the balloons. I also backed the 2 rounder balloons with some vellum for a softer feel.

I arranged the balloons around the title and photo stack and adhered using some foam tape and glue dots to give them some dimension.

Tucked in a few ephemera pieces to add detail and balance to the layout, and a sprinkling of gold colour shine to add some finishing touches.

Well thats all for me and my very first share. I hope you like it!

Until next time, Happy Scrapping
