Hi CTY crafty friends today I have a love themed layout using the gorgeous new cut file Circle of Love
I have used Crate Paper Lala Love collection.I cut the Circle of Love cut file measuring 10.5×10.5 inches in white cardstock, I then added it to another piece of white cardstock measuring 11×11 inches.I then used the release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) and pulled out the hearts, I then divided them into two and cut using two different papers/patterns. I added each heart with foam tape to create a 3D effect. I hand stitched the inner circle to add definition and texture. I added my photo off centre with foam tape.I added rubber embellishments on my photo to draw your eye to it.I tucked under my photo a floral die cut to break up the white of the circle. I used a brighter coloured paper to add my final page border, again to provide contrast against the white. I couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous tasselled heart to finish off!This cut file is perfect for any Valentine layout or card!
Thank you for stopping by today and I hope my layout has inspired you to get crafty this week! Head over to the Cut to You Shop and grab your own Circle of Love cut file.
Hi everyone! Kirei here with a layout featuring one of the older CUT to YOU cut files called Circle Star Combo. I love that it has a mix of stars and circles and wanted to highlight both of them….
I used a fun rainbow striped patterned paper for the cut file and then backed all the non-star circles with vellum. I picked three of these to make shaker pockets and to do this I added thin strips of foam tape around the back edge of each circle behind the vellum. Then I filled each one with some sparkly sequins that coordinated with the stripes on the cut file, and finally added another circle of vellum to seal them in!
Then I attached the cut file to a 11.5″ square piece of white textured card using foam pads. I had already stuck the white card to a frame made with the same rainbow striped paper that I had used for the cut file.
I added back the stars from the cut file using more foam pads, and placed them slightly off centre.
I mounted two small photos with patterned paper and attached them to the bottom right of the layout, raising the top edges with foam pads. Then the fun bit…. adding the embellishments! I used tone on tone word stickers on the cut file, and lots of other matching ephemera, stickers and enamel stickers to the top and bottom of the photos.
Finally I added a one word title for the fab exhibition that we saw in Kew Gardens in London last year….
You can find this cut file and loads more over in the CUT to YOU shop! Don’t forget to pop on over to the CUT to YOU Facebook group to share any layouts you make using one of the cut files… thanks for looking today, see you later in the month!
Hello Creatives! Sara here today with a brand new layout featuring the My Kind of Messy cut file.
To make my cut file really POP! , I first cut it in black cardstock and then splattered it like crazy with white acrylic paint. It gave the cut file a ton of interest and the black added a lot of contrast to my layout.
By pairing my cut file with a “pre-printed” watercolor background paper and keeping the embellishments simple and geometric, this layout came together quick as a wink!
Hi there, Piroska is here today with a romantic layout featuring a cut file from the February Release. This month’s offer is full of love and hearts, which are perfect for those love-themed layouts or Valentine cards. Check them out – I just love them all!
These days are the 13th anniversary of getting to know each other with my husband. I’ve chosen the Love You & Me cut file for this occasion, from which I first wanted to make a pinky Valentine Day-ish layout, but then decided to take on the floral romantic line.
I cut the cut file from smooth white cardstock and used the My Mind’s Eye Splendor collection for backing it. The florals in the file are so beautiful, I wanted to highlight them by backing the file with floral patterns and fussy cutting some flowers from a patterned paper.
I chose a white spotted peach coloured cardstock as a background paper and glued the cut file with foam adhesive on it, in order to add some dimension to the cut file. I backed my photo, and added the fussy cut flowers and chipboard stickers to the cut file. I arranged them by composing a visual triangle, and I repeated it with the enamel dots as well.
I really love the result – what about you? Go and grab this cut file (and some others) from the shop and start creating a similar layout today!
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!
Curious about the cut file? Its one of the new January releases called Floral Edge and you can find it RIGHT HERE
I love how coloring up this image made it coordinate perfectly with my fall photos!
And I have a process video to share with you showing exactly how I did it!
Hi everyone! It’s Kirei here with my second CUT to YOU layout for the month and I decided to use the fab Camera Oh Snap cut file to go with my cute photo of a friend’s daughter at a recent weekend away we had…
I cut the camera out with white card and then backed it using a mix of soft pink and dusty blue patterned papers. I love dimension on my layouts so had to use sticky foam pads to give it that more layered look, it can be a bit fiddly but it’s definitely worth it in the end!
Though I did decide to back the parts of the letters that were open… but stuck them directly onto the cut file as they were so small!
My photo is mounted on patterned paper and tissue paper and then I created an embellishment cluster to the bottom left of the photo and overlapping the cut file.
I hope you’re inspired by what you’ve seen, don’t forget to pop on over to the CUT to YOU shop to see all the other fab cut files and please share your layouts over on the CUT to YOU Facebook group as we love to see what you create!
Kay here with you today sharing a boy themed layout using a new cutfile from the January release. I have used the new CUT to YOU Circle Eights Cut File and papers from the Boys Rule collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studios. This combo was perfect for as I am a mum of 3 boys!
I wanted the cutfile to really stand out against the lovely bright papers so I used black cardstock. I had some small scraps of paper to use up and armed with a circle punch I filled in all the circles.
Using 3D foam I mounted the design onto the background sheet after adding a few splatters here and there. I then added my photo followed by embellishments from the collection’s ephemera packs.
I added some punched stars and some small white enamel dots to complete my design.
If you are like me and are always on the hunt for boy designs, make sure you jump into the Boyz Zone on the CUT to YOU website.
I was scrolling through some old photos and came across this gem of our children taken 20 years ago. I must say that I didn’t pay much attention to the date until it came time to document it, and I honestly had to do a triple take. No way could this photo have been taken twenty years ago. There is just no way these children are two decades older, but they really are. Just wow.
Enough on that. Since there are so many colors in the photo, I wanted to empahsize them, but also keep this page light and fresh. Starting with a lighter color to back the larger two florals was a perfect way to keep the focus on the photos. Adding in the pops of color keeps the eye moving around the entire cut file, yet still maintaining a light feel.
A few die cuts, strips of patterned paper, and whimsical wooden butterflies tie everything together and creates movement. Tucking the photo into the beautiful cut file makes this page feel cohesive and as if the photo is blooming out of the banner.
There are so many fun and whimscial cut files to choose from in the CTY store. Which is your current favorite? Be sure to share your proejcts with us on the CUT to YOU HQ facebook page. We’d love to see them!
Hi everyone, this is my first blog post as a member of the Cut to You DT and I am super excited to be here! I live in the UK so after a festive December and lots of cold, winter photos I have gone for something completely different and have embraced summer! I used the Urchin Background cut file which was perfect to go with this cute photo of my nephew at the seaside.
I cut the Urchin background from patterned paper and before sticking it down I traced the flower centre of each sea urchin onto patterned papers and cut each of them out.
Then I stuck the Urchin background directly to white card only using glue in the centre of each of the sea urchins so that I could curl the edges to create some dimension. I trimmed the parts of the cut file that were just off the edge of the white card at the top and left of the layout.
To add detail to each sea urchin I added the paper flowers to the centre and then decorated each with a puffy sticker.
I then added my photo which I mounted onto some of the matching patterned papers, and finished with a title following the edge of the sea urchin.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to pop on over to the Cut to You shop to check out all the other fab cut files and I’ll see you later in the month for another layout!
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!
