Merry Everything | Tarrah McLean

Hi creative friends and Merry Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful few days celebrating!

It’s Tarrah back with you to share a new Christmas layout featuring the awesome Merry Everything title cut file.

Merry Everything cut file

I started by cutting the Merry Everything cut file design out of white cardstock and then backed it with different papers from the Kringle & Co collection by Photoplay Paper. Once it was all backed I adhered the cut file with foam tape to the left of a patterned paper background also from the Kringle & Co collection. I then trimmed this paper down and matted the entire layout on the red plaid paper.

I adhered my photo to the right of the cut file with a small plaid paper layered under the photo. I added a gorgeous red and black heart from Charm’s Creations to the left of the photo and also added a flair from Just Add Flair to the centre of the ‘R’ in Every.

I kept the embellishing fairly simple, adding just a few stickers and die-cuts here and there. I like to add embellishments to the top of my cut files, I like how this helps to draw your eye to the cut file. Lastly I stamped the date stamp.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you all had a lovely time celebrating Christmas.

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.

Christmas Joy cut file

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.
