Get Your Witchy On | Halloween 2 cut file | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends,

It’s Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing……..yes another spooky Halloween layout! I chose to cut out the Halloween 2 cut file from one of the plain patterned papers in the Crate Paper Hey Pumpkin paper pad. I then adhered the cut file using my trusty Nuvo glue on to the orange spotted paper, I love the contrast of the white against the orange. Very effective. I trimmed the orange patterned paper down slightly on one side and the top and adhered it to the black cardstock.

You can see in the photo above that I didn’t adhere the web cut file down completely, how you can tell is the shadow that you can see where the cut file lifts up off the page slightly. I love dimension and shadows on a layout! Don’t you?! I decided to place my photo on the right portion of the page and placing my embellishments and title in a horizontal design across the page.

The Halloween 2 cut file was perfect to go with my photo as the photo is of me with a Halloween Snapchat filter, aren’t those web eyes cool?! I pulled out a few bits and pieces from a few different Halloween collections including some chipboard, stickers and ephemera. I wanted to keep most of the outside of the web cut file free of embellishments, choosing to only add the 31 chipboard piece at the top and some sprinkles of black mist. I also stamped the date stamp and freehand drew a black outline around the outside of the layout using a black pen.

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?! Check out all the Halloween cut files in the CUT to YOU store, I am certain there is something there for your next Halloween project!

Happy Halloween | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends!

It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new Halloween themed layout. I chose the awesome Happy Halloween title cut file enlarging it slightly in the Silhouette Studio software and cutting it out from light blue cardstock for something a little different.

I teamed the cut file with the Goosebumps collection by Pretty Little Studio, backing the Happy word with one patterned paper and the Halloween word with another. I then adhered the cut file to a grid style patterned paper background. I tucked my photo in to the top right of the cut file overlapping the Halloween word at the bottom.

On the web part of the cut file, I layered a colourful web die-cut and a punched out circle word on top of the web using foam tape. I added a few enamel dots around the page and also some stickers and phrases to help tell the story. I love to overlap embellishments on top of cut files as it draws focus and adds interest.

I kept the embellishing fairly simple on this layout as I felt the cut file makes a great statement on my page and I did not want to cover it up. A Halloween page would not be complete without a spider added, the die-cut one at the top of the page fits in so well as it balances with the web at the bottom of the cut file.
