Autumn Adventures|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to share with you my latest layout.

For my layout,I wanted to mix and match a couple different cut files. I chose the Thankful Page Builder cut file (I just used the pumpkin) and the Yearly Title cut file (for the Autumn title).

I used the Autumn word and paired it with some small letter stickers from my stash to create my title.

I colored up my pumpkin and created a scene across the bottom of my page. Love how cute it turned out.

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!

Traveler’s Notebook Process|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today sharing my newest project featuring the Dragon Fly cut file!

I have been documenting some of our summer adventues in mini books I made including this one, all about our day at the local botanical gardens. I love to incorporate oversized cut files into my mini books! They are so striking used that way! I added beautiful ink blended wings, and backed the body with black cardstock. I added some clear glossy Nuvo drops as an accent.

I create a stamped background for my dragonfly and embellished with a few fussy cut floral elements to keep the design elegant and simple.

I love this fun,saturated, summery colors and that dragonfly is so striking!

Be sure to head over to the SHOP and check out all the summery cut files! For all the details, you can take a peek at my process video-

Fun+Sun|Sara Scraps

Good Morning! Sara with you today! This week I’m scraplifting our amazing owner-Gwen! I used the brand new awesome cut file Fun+Sun in the SHOP.

I kept this layout simple- just backed the cut file with some of my favorite patterned paper and popped it up with some foam tape.

I took my time and enjoyed my products, creating clusters around the cut file to document my son, who is growing up WAY too fast!

You can see all the details of my layout as well as the layout I scraplifted in my You Tube video!

Sunshine On My Mind| Sara Scraps

Hello Everone! Sara here with you today. I have a new layout to share featuing the Stitch Geo Heart Cut File. I used the cut file in a different way to acheive a unique look to the file.

I used the main part of the file as a stencil, traced the stitch marks, then “drew ” the stitch marks using Nuvo Drops. I inked up the outline of the cutfile to create my background.

I used the Sunkissed collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio to embellish my layout and I used a cut apart card as my title. With the cut file background adding texture and color, this layout came together quickly and is perfect for summer photos.

You can see all the details and the whole process showing how I created my layout in the video below. What other cut file from the SHOP would be fun to alter? Let me know in the comments below!

Smiles All Around|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today. I have a brand new layout to share featuring the Snap Shot cut file from the SHOP!

I started my project by backing the cut file with lots of pretty foil papers. I left some of the cut file empty to allow my yellow background paper to pop through and provide some extra color.

I popped the cut file up on foam tape. I just love the effect of giving cut files a little pop for added shadows and dimension.

I backed my photo with a contrasting patterned paper and then added some ephemera clusters around my photo so that it doesn’t get lost on the colorful background.

You can check out all the details over on my channel.

Love This Story|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today sharing a new layout. I used two cut files for my project today- This Story and the Rose Builder cut file. These two files are a perfect match for each other and together they create a beautiful coordinated page.

I cut the files in kraft cardstock to go with my heritage photos. And then I colored the centers and the edges of the leaves with some ink for an added extra detail.

I backed the cut file title and then used the Rose builder file as a base for my embellishment clusters. I love how the cut files coordinate and accent my photo and story.

You can see all the details of the layout and the process on my You Tube channel today!

You Make Me Smile|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today to show off one of the beautiful floral cut files in the shop!

For my project this week, I started by cutting the Vintage Peony Cut File. This file is a Kit to You file, so it comes with layout ideas and directions …but…when you have finished your kit instuctions, you still have this gorgeous cut file to use again and again! I cut my cut file quite large to make it a striking focus on my page. I backed it with lots of colors and popped it up on foam tape.

I printed my photo in sepia to help it stand off the background and still be the focal point of my layout.

I love how versatile this cut file is for so many uses! You get directions and the ability to make a gorgeous layout in the kit and then you have the cut file to use over and over agin in many different ways!

You can see all the available kits in the shop HERE

And here is my proces video showing how this layout came together!

Have A Lovely Day!

Label Love|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today. I have another layout to share using a black cut file. I just loved the first one I did, so I just had to try it a second time.

I chose to use the Onward And Upward Background Cut FIle . After cutting it in black I turned it on its side to resemble a line of labels, which suited my photos perfectly. I told the story of my youngest son’s discovery of an old Dymno Label Maker and then walked all over the the house labelling things…he labelled everything he could find.

I placed my photos across the bottom of the page , matted with a fun mixed media background paper. A small cluster of embellishments to set off the photos and a splattering of black ink finished off this part of the layout.

In the upper right hand portion of the layout, I added a journaling block, some more black splatters, and another small cluster of embellishments.

For my video this week, I ran into some technology user error, so I just have a tutorial to share showing how I go about backing my cut files which I hope you find informative and helpful. And be sure to head over to the SHOP and check out all the amazing cut files!

Have A Lovely Day!
