Cool And Crisp/Sara Scraps

Good Morning Lovely Crafters! Sara here with you today sharing a new layout! This layout is very special. It uses both a brand new cut file from Cut To You and the January 15th inspiration from CSI Challenge Blog

From the Case File I took the Color Inspiration and the book pages…so I created a mixed media background and inked up the cut file, backing it with vellum to give it a soft feel!

Bloom Little One/Sara Scraps

Hello Creative Friends! Sara with you today to share my first layout of the decade and of the new design team term. Huge shout out to Gwen for letting me stay on! But enough about me, let’s get to the good stuff!

I decided to share with you a layout idea for those  who may scrapbook in multiple sizes. I am guilty of this..I scrapbook in all.the.sizes! I cut my chosen cut file in a 12X12 size and then created an 81/2X11 layout. I used the Leaf Sprigs cut file  and then I trimmed it as I created the layout- yep, you can totally cut up your files!

Backing the cut file with one patterned paper was an easy way to provide color and to help me to create a customized background for my layout.

I paired the cut file with lots of embellishments from the Unforgettable collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

I love how my layout turned out and a great way to showcase how to use a cut file for any size project!

Together/Sara Scraps

Hello! Sara with you today with a fun fall layout featuring an older cut file- Heart Lovers Unite . If you are new to Cut To You files, this one should REALLY be a part of your collection! It is versatile and can be used in soo many ways. The possibilities are endless.

For my layout, I chose to use an inlay technique for my layout. I hand painted each heart using Shimmerz acrylic paint or Distress Oxide ink in Vintage Photo. I then added some black splatter for a little extra detail.

Once the background was finished, the layout came together easily with some coordinating embellishments and paper.

You Are My Sunshine | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello! Sara is here today to share a fun layout with you! For this layout, I started with the photo and went stash diving for products to compliment it.

IMG_4305.jpeg

I chose the My Sunshine Title cut file for my layout.

8ADC92B2-0E21-4FB3-B701-5965488C963C

I decided to keep my design to a nice, clean diagonal design and then spice it up with ink blending on my title and lots of circles and sparkly bits!

5E1B4FDA-EC70-4F25-A6D9-1D13AE06A89E

I love how the black really pops off the page and gives it an elegant feel! And while I used lots of different manufacturers, by letting my photo be my guide, my layout works together seamlessly!

Awesome | Sara Scraps

Hello Hello!

I have what might be one of my very favorite layouts ever to share with you! I love to create mixed media backgrounds. I think I have a unique take on how I approach mixed media. I like a “cleaner” look with lots of texture instead of a “messy” feel. Pair this with a gorgeous cut file and “swoon”- if I do say so myself.

IMG_3654

For today’s layout I used the Arrows Cut File . I love how it drew attention right to my photo.

IMG_3696

After I created my background. I backed the cut file with papers from Cocoa Vanilla Studio’s Boys Rule collection. To compliment the colors in my photo, I added some small touches of pink.

443885F3-E3A7-4DC8-82FF-3B0B93F8DB7D

I used a stamp to guide my journaling about all the things my son is currently loving.

I’ve used the Bow Cluster Cut File Those cute bows were just too much to pass up! I paired them with the new One Canoe 2 Willow collection and these adorable photos of my nieces and I. 70577760_10220211448135264_8572947334919356416_o

I altered the cut file with just a bit with ink blending and a spray of gold shimmer to make it stand out and give it a fun golden glimmer.

We Still Do | Sara Scraps

Hello!

Sara joining you today with a layout featuring one of the new release cut files –We Still Do.

599AB8DA-7E3E-45C6-8461-5641A31C5213.jpeg

I have been married for almost 21 years, and while there are many, many cut files around for weddings and new loves, there are few that are creaed to document longer relationships…so I was over the moon excited to be able to create with this file and document a photo of my husband and I.

BB4DE30C-F86C-4780-9542-3900C4DA6FBD

I added some penwork detail and some sequins (I love sequins to the moon and back to add extra small details to a cut file!) to give the title a fairly prominant place on my layout. I wanted it to be easy to read and to catch your eye for sure! I usually like a cut file to take second place to my photo, but for some reason on this particular layout, I wanted the tirle/sentiment to ctch your eye first, and then move on to the photo.
