Heart | Daisy Sprig Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am so happy to be sharing another project with you today. I wanted to take things back to basics a little and circular designs have always been a go-to for me. So for this layout I chose to work with the Daisy Sprig Cut File.

To see how I created this layout in more detail, you can take a look at my process video below.

Jack + Sally | Halloween 1 Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I’m so happy to be sharing another spooky layout with you this month. For this project, I used just one component from the Halloween 1 Cut File to create a fun base to build my layout fromt.

I have been loving the departure from my standard white cardstock cut files and the dynamic contrast that using black cardstock for my cut files is contributing to my Halloween layouts. To see how I created this layout in more detail, please go ahead and check out my process video below.

Here are a few more close up images of the completed layout.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today. I hope you have a great day!

Sweet Girl|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Rose Garden Frame cut file.

I decided to have a play with my cut file this week. I didnt just back it. I decided to add ink and Nuvo Drops to the centers to pop up the demension and interest. I also backed part of the cut files with vellum for added interest. And then popped the whole thing up with foam tape.

Sometimes I like to keep my cut files simple and sometimes I like to have a play with them and add extra dimension and detail. It’s part of the reason that I love cutfiles,you can keep them simple or add lots of details- the choice is yours.This was one I really wanted to play with.

I added a bit of mixed media to my background and kept the design fairly simple so the photo and cut file pop! I have a process video showing all of the details and design choices. You can head over to my channel and check it out!

Which cut file do you think would be amazing with some added depth and dimension? Head over to the SHOP and take a peek!

Have A Lovely Day!

Love | Quilted Heart Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am back today with another Design Team Project to share with you. For this layout I used the Quilted Heart Cut File but customised it a little bit to bring in some of my favourite elements – stitching and layers!

To create this ‘cut-out’ effect, I manipulated the Quilted Heart Cut File in my software to have the outside cut line as stitching holes instead of a straight cut. That allowed me to hand stitch a pretty border while cutting the inside pieces from the white background, giving me a windowpane effect.
If you’re interested to see how I turn a regular cut file into a stitching file you can check out my YouTube video below:

Happiness | Rose Garden Frame Cut File | Belinda Jane

Hello beautiful friends! I am so happy to be back with you today with another Design Team project to share. For this layout I wanted something soft and sweet and the Rose Garden Frame Cut File was absolutely perfect to document this floral heavy photo.

I just love the subtle detail that the Rose Garden Frame Cut File adds to this very soft, pretty and oh-so-pink layout. If you know me, you know that this layout captures all of my favourite things! You can see how it all came together in more detail in my process video below.

CUT to YOU | “Hey Bestie” | Melinda Sweetman

Hey and hello CUT to YOU friends!!! Melinda back again today and no, you are not going crazy!!
I do indeed have another layout share using the same cut file which also happens to be my page title!!

Again, I’m using the “Hey Bestie” cut file from the store.

If you don’t remember my last page here it is again and I’m using the “left overs” to create this page!

The insides of my letters were too beautiful to ditch so I immediately cut the title once again using textured white cardstock and used some foam tape to pop up all of the pretty letters.

I wanted this page to look and feel different to my last one so straight away decided I was going to use some different supplies; but still Heidi Swapp goodies. This time from the Storyline Chapters collection. And to not use any mixed media!!

I’ve pulled out another of my newly printed photos with one of my other besties and started layering up the photo, cut file and patterned papers.

For some extra detail and texture I have stitched around my photo and my 3 biggest patterned paper layers, bending up the edges of all the papers.

I ended up with a more vertical design on this page and decided to a) use a tag behind my photo to house my journaling and b) work with 3 main embellishments clusters that follow that vertical line down the page.

I cannot express just how much I ADORE that yellow patterned paper in my background so I made sure to bring that to the foreground of my layout also.

My finishing touch was some little black gems that I scattered on a loose diagonal (but almost vertical) from the top left cluster to the bottom right and added in some white glitter enamel hearts.

As always, I have a process video for you, just hit that play button below and I do hope that you enjoy!!

Here is a quick look at my layouts side by side!

If you didn’t know I’d used the same cut file you’d never know!! I just love that about digital cut files!!

When you are shopping take a look and think “how can I use this cut file multiple times/ways” before you purchase.
The best thing is, even if can’t come up with anything right now you can cut and use the file as many times as you like after you own it!!!

I hope you’ve enjoyed my share today.
Did you notice that this isn’t the only cut file I’ve used more than once???
I hope you have a fab, scrappy day and I’ll see you back here on the blog later this month!

Darn It | Sunburst Heart Cutfile | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this ever so sad puppy layout featuring the beautiful Sunburst Heart cutfile. I thought that the Pinkfresh “Keeping It Real” collection was the perfect vibe for this tricky day for Blue.

I just had to do some hand sewing on this cutfile! I used a pale pink for the center of the heart and a nice aqua to back stitch around the entire cutfile. I love how it came together. I thought that the layout needed a bit more punch so I backed the bright yellow patterned paper with a gorgeous floral.

I layered embellishments by the same collection, grabbed some very old alphas and included some flair to bring it all together. I do love this one!

Happy Scrapping!

Good Times | Daisy Bough Cutfile | Simple Stories “Sunkissed”

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and bright layout that is also a scraplift of a gorgeous layout by our fearless leader, Gwen. I went after her signature style of a white background, bright pops of color and stitching around the border. I love that this Daisy Bough cutfile has a curve to nestle your photo right into.

You can see that I chose not to fully tack down the cutfile as I do so love the bit of dimension that you get from the shadow. I chose to use a black and white photo so that the Simple Stories “Sunkissed” collection would pop right off the page.

And here is the gorgeous layout that Gwen created:

Happy Scrapping!
