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!

The Aquarium|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today. I have a super fun layout to share featuring the cutest fish in the sea.. the adorable Fancy Fish cut file of course!

I told you they are the cutest fish in the sea…

I created a mixed media “sea” for my fish to swim in. And I backed the cut files with vellum for a translucent look which I love.

I chose a an orange and blue color combination to match my photos..I just looked through my stash till I found the colors and a few embellishments to enhance my photos and background and went to creating!

You can check out my process and how I created my layout by heading over to my You Tube channel and taking a peek at my video..

Be sure to head over to the SHOP and take a peek at all the gorgeous cut files!

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!

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!

One Of A Kind | Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara here with you today with another layout featuring a beautiful Cut To You file foiled with gorgeous Fab Foil from Spiegelmom Scraps.

I used the Spring Floral Edge cut file on my layout. I love how placing it on the top of my page over my photo allowed the photo to really become a part of the layout. My niece peeking around both the tree and the cut file worked so well! Add the Antique Gold Fab Foil and it becomes a real showstopper.

I kept the rest of the layout very simple in soft colors so that the photo and cut file would be the focus.

Just a small embellishment cluster and this layout is done.

Be sure to head over to You Tube and check out my process video with all the details.. and then run over to the Cut To You shop for some fun cut files.

Our Beautiful Family|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! I’m so happy to be back today, sharing a layout using the All Around Floral Background Cut File.

This cut file is an older one from the shop but its sooo great to play with! I cut the file with white cardstock so I could custom color it to perfectly coordinate with the Daydream Collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Coloring a cut file is a fabulous way to make the file your own and create a layout to fit your style or to match your photo perfectly!

These lovely word die cuts from the collection made the absolutely perfect title for my page. You can see all the details in my process video over on my channel! And don’t forget to take a peek at the SHOP and grab an amazing cut file for your next project!

Music Soothes The Soul|Sara Scraps

Hello Everyone! Sara with you today sharing a layout featuring the Guitar cut file and the amazing Legendary collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

This cut file is so perfect for my boys! Both of them play guitar and I have loads of guitar photos to scrap so I was excited to pull some out and scrap them.

For some added texture and interest, I hand stitched the “strings” on the guitar and backed it with some woodgrain paper for warmth and an orange strap to compliment the photo.

I stamped two borders using a stamp set across the top, one of which acts as the title of my page. I loved these ticket die cuts that came in the collection so I layered them up along with some stars for embellishment.

Some of the stars I popped up with foam adhesive for some extra dimension and then just a few phrase stickers to finish up this page.

If you have some guitarists in your life, this cut file is a must buy for sure. And while your there, be sure to check out all the amazing music files in the SHOP.

Here is my process video for this one for you to enjoy.

Have A Lovely Day!
