Delightful Roses | Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone and happy 2nd birthday CUT to YOU!!!

It’s Tarrah back with you today to share a new layout inspired by the gorgeous July Mood Board challenge. I was inspired by the pink (of course) and the gorgeous roses/petals in the top section. I have used the stunning new Fern Posey cut file on my page today!

The gorgeous Fern Posey cut file

The photo I am documenting is of a gorgeous rose from my Mum’s garden with a super cute grasshopper on top! Perfect photo for the mood board (mood board inspiration picture is below)

In the close up photo below you can see the photo with the rose and grasshopper on my layout. I cut the Fern Posey cut file from white cardstock and then chose a pretty pink paper to back all the floral parts. I left the greenery parts plain without any paper behind them.

Once I had finished backing the flowers, I put craft foam underneath and arranged it on my chosen background paper how I liked it, I slightly rotated it from the original cut file design photo.

I tucked in my photo over on the right hand side of the page and added a few embellishments here also. I even added a set of books to the right of my photo just like the books in the mood board! My title is Delightful Roses, made up of a small sticker and some pink alphabet stickers. I added the title under the photo and also added one of the gorgeous layered butterflies near the title.

The good part about raising a cut file up from the background is that it then gives you cute places to tuck embellishments in and around. Some of the flower die-cuts and stickers fit perfectly by doing this.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today. I hope you have a chance to join in with our mood board challenge for July. By joining in, you go into a random draw to win free cut files!

Happy creating!

Love This Story | Rachel Lowe

How absolutely gorgeous is the floral title/page builder This Story cut file which is a new release.

I have used an older collection by Dear Lizzy New Day collection.

I went back to my white card stock and also cut Love This Story in white as I wanted use a dark contrast paper to back the cut file. I used the Release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) so I could cut the letters separately and add with foam tape. You will note some I added without foam tape, in doing this you add visual interest and height.

I chose two different colours/patterns for the roses and added a gem stone to the centres.

I added my embellishments with foam tape also to create a 3D effect.

I added a phrase sentiment which went perfect…….Love This Story…….Love This Moment!

I added my photo (which is courtesy of IG, but I promise I have been to Paris and the colours were perfect for my layout!) and added embellishments around it which assisted to ‘frame’ it and draw your eye to it a I chose not to mat it).

I finished of by adding some light splatters of black paint. And there you have it one pretty layout of me remembering my days in Paris.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting.
