I pulled colors from the photo and then created 1/2″ strips of patterned paper that I fringed and laid on the center cirle starting from the bottomworking my way up. I used y measuring mat as my guide.
One they were all adhered, I then trimmed around the circle leaving a very small border as to not overlap the edges.
It was hard to cover up all the fun fringes, but I felt that it was just too plain without adding some fussy cut flowers and other embellishments.

Happy August! Today I’m sharing a layout featuring the Leaf Cluster cut file. My daughter did a photo shoot with my granddaugher and I just love this photo.
I wanted to mix my style up a bit an leave the leaves open. I really love the end result and feel as if this decision creates a nice impact to this layout. I cut this in a few different sizes to add visual interest, which also creates impact.
Not much else to say other than showing several photos. Fussy cut flowers and a few extra details complete this layout.
This pretty much sums up my post. Thanks for stopping by! You can find this and so many more delightful cut files in the CTY store. Don’t forget to check out all the fabulous new August releases- Gwen has once again outdone herself. 🙂
I’ll be back in a few weeks with another fabulous cutfile to share.
Hi y’all! I tend to gravitate towards the floral designs, so selecting the super fun July 2020 Circles Sliced Background cut file was a little out of my comfort zone, but I have to say that I love how this layout turned out!
I just had to use this file as soon as I saw it and once I decided upon a photo and the paper, everything fell togther easily.
My son-in-law recently took my granddaughter fishing and this photo of their special moments caught my heart.
I pulled in the fish theme as well as colors from the photo. Adding several patterns keeps this layout fun and interesting.
I added some die cuts to create some visual interest and to add dimension.
Some clear thread creates an illusion of fishing line which adds to the overall theme of the page.
Keeping the photo matting simple by using two layers of vellum is a simple way to add focus to the photo, but doesn’t distract from all the patterns.
I hope you step out of your comfort zone with your next cut file purchase! The end result just might turn out to be one of your favorites, just as this is mine.
Check out the CTY store for all the fabulous files.
As you can see, I rotated the cutfile to fit my photo. I wanted to pull in lots of color from the photo to enhance it, and while I used some busy prints, I feel as if they all work well together and the eye still moves to the photo.
I used some paints to color the areas where the cutfile is solid to create some additional contrast.
Some floss adds dimension and visual interest to the flowers.
This frame is so much fun! I’ve used several others and have enjoyed creating with them. Be sure to check out all the cool files in the Cut to You store. See you next month! 🙂
Hello scrappy friends! I hope June finds you in good spirits! 🙂 The weather is just starting to warm up where I am located which is super exciting for me.
Today I’m sharing a layout created with two cut files- Scallop Banners and the Floral Boquet Set. I selected these two cut files along with the overall color scheme from the design of my granddaughters swimming suit.
I added small amounts of ink to the background to provide an illusion of water and then laid the scallop strips down randomly. A few stitches here and there add some dimension.
I then placed the backed cutfiles over the photo and finished off with some bright words and fun accents.
Doubling up on cut files is super fun and creates an extra exciting layout. I do hope you’ll try and share your work in the Cut to You HQ facebook group. 🙂
I wanted to add some depth to the flowers, so I cut this area twice. I added the patterned paper underneath the first layer, and then added the extra floral section with a tiny bit of glue to a few areas to hold it in place.
To frame the page, I just added some floss. A couple of stitched areas, die cuts along with some quick doodling adds whimsy to the layout.
Word stickers along the top of the heart also keep this layout light and fun.
I just adore this darling girl and this cut file is such a delightful way to document her.
There are so many beautiful and fun new cut files in the CTY store, so check them out if you haven’t already!
I discarded the cut n stitch aspect and cut two of the design. I wanted to keep this page simple and focus the colors on our outfits in the photo.
Prior to adding the completed cut file pieces, I used some paint to add a few splatters on the backgound to add a touch of color and visual interest.
I then added some simple triangles to help ground the cut files and also tucked some of pieces under. This layout came together quickly and it has a pretty, soft balance to it.
If you haven’t browsed the CTY store lately, you need to go see all the wonderful new goodies that have been released! There are three new kits as well as a special social isolation (home bodies) release that has several files to help you document this challenging time.
