Hello Friends! I am so excited to share a new layout with you today! I had pictures of my son and his sweet girlfriend that I really wanted to scrap. They are so cute together! I wanted to use a “Love” themed cutfile for this layout. I found the Loops of Love cut file in the shop and knew it was the one!

Loops of Love Digital Cut File

The photo was taken outdoors in a wooded area and Ariel was wearing a teal colored tank top. I loved the natural, organic feel of this photo and wanted to play off that in my layout. So, I chose papers from Heidi Swapp’s Art Walk collection and a dark wood grain paper. I also incorporated wood veneer pieces for my title and embellishments for a rustic, outdoors touch.

I used the offset feature in Silouhette Studio to create a solid base for the loops of love “outline” and layered one upon the other. I wanted the cut file to be more “defined” and really pop off the page because the aqua/teal tones in the cut file and background were very similiar. Therefore, I inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added dimensional foam tape to the backside and adhered to the background.

Lastly, I added “confetti” type (enamel dots, wood veener hearts, small word stickers) embellishments around the page in similar tones to add a bit more interest and texture. That completes the page! I had so much fun working with this cut file and just love how this layout turned out! ❤ If you would like to see the layout come together, step-by-step, you can watch the process video linked below.

I hope you get some creative, scrappy time for yourself this week. If you need some inspiration just go browsing through the Cut to You shop. I find everytime I go to the shop, ideas and inspiration come flooding in! Have a great week and may you be greatly blessed!

You and Me | Michelle Stokes

Hello friends its Michelle S here today with a new layout share. I chose an older file from the shop ‘Love You and Me‘ the Happiness Collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio and a sweet photo of Leila and I.

I played around with the You & Me design in Silhouette Studio to get the right size to overlap the wreath paper I wanted to use from the CVS Happiness Collection. I cut the design on white cardstock then used a couple of bright pattern papers to back the words, flowers and leaves.

I added come extra pattern paper to the photo stack and adhered this over the & using some foam tape to lift it off the cut file design. I also added a couple of stickers from the collection for an extra pop of colour in that area of the layout.

Originally I had planned to adhere the cut file directly onto the floral wreath pattern paper, but I felt it needed a little extra dimension to really make it pop off the page. Out came my scissors and I fussy cut 3/4 of the wreath from the paper and adhered that to more white cardstock that had been adhered and sewn to another large floral pattern paper from the same collection.

I gave the floral wreath a little extra height off the backing paper by using foam tape to adhere it, then layering the cut file over the top of this using more foam tape for an extra kick of dimension. Love love LOVE dimension on layouts.

Final touches were added using gold colour shine splattered here and there and a couple of glitter dots.

Well thats all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by.

Until next time, Happy Scrapping!

Love You & Me | Piroska Czako-Radvanyi

Hi there, Piroska is here today with a romantic layout featuring a cut file from the February Release. This month’s offer is full of love and hearts, which are perfect for those love-themed layouts or Valentine cards. Check them out – I just love them all!

These days are the 13th anniversary of getting to know each other with my husband. I’ve chosen the Love You & Me cut file for this occasion, from which I first wanted to make a pinky Valentine Day-ish layout, but then decided to take on the floral romantic line.

I cut the cut file from smooth white cardstock and used the My Mind’s Eye Splendor collection for backing it. The florals in the file are so beautiful, I wanted to highlight them by backing the file with floral patterns and fussy cutting some flowers from a patterned paper.

I chose a white spotted peach coloured cardstock as a background paper and glued the cut file with foam adhesive on it, in order to add some dimension to the cut file. I backed my photo, and added the fussy cut flowers and chipboard stickers to the cut file. I arranged them by composing a visual triangle, and I repeated it with the enamel dots as well.

I really love the result – what about you? Go and grab this cut file (and some others) from the shop and start creating a similar layout today!

Thanks for reading and happy scrapping!
