A love like gnome other | Tamara Buckler

Hey hey CTY peeps!

I’m up on the blog today with a really fun and silly share! Some of the DT have been a bit obsessed with the little gnomes that have been coming out in collections lately, and the lovely Gwen has been very accepting of this… so much so that she made us some gnome-y cut files! Today I’m using the A Love Like Gnome Other File to document these silly photos of my girls from Halloween.

I started by cutting the file using black card stock, and then cut it a second time using a bluey green colour, but taking out the inside lines, so I could use it to back the file. I adhered these two cuts together, and then added back in the black hearts, which I stitched on for a bit of fun and texture. I also stitched around the page in black to tie all this together.

I used a very busy background paper for this page, and so applied some gesso in the background to tone things down. I also popped the entire file up on foam to provide some separation from all the busy-ness.

I tucked my photos and most of my cute little embellishments in around my title. I actually used black ink around the edges of these, to tie it back to the title and again provide some separation from the background.

I mean, how cute is this little guy ^ 😍!

Until next time, Big Loves, Tam xo

Create | Josefine vd Hoeven

Hello creative Paperlovers, Welcome to the blog today! So happy to see you here,.. I made a new scrapbook layout using the beautiful cut files from Cut to You! I love using these beautiful cut files.

For this layout I chose the gorgeous cut file Create

I start with a ready to use mixed media background paper from the Vicki Boutin collection. I love the beautiful mixed media colors on this page. So most of the work has already been done. I do like the idea of using a ready-to-use background sometimes. I cut the “Create” title cut file with my Cricut Maker and placed the cut file on top of the mixed media background design paper.

I cut design paper and tags to size and place it behind the photo to create more layers. I adhere the photo with 3D foam tape. I choose serval die-cuts and flowers and playfully slide them between the layers behind the photo. Love how it turned out.

With disteress Oxide ink I color the words “create” in the colors of my background. I blend the colors together and use a blending tool for this. I use 3D foam to placed them on my layout. The colors I used are: broken china, evergreen bough, mustard seed and worn lipstick. At the top of the layout as well as on the bottom I decorate it with word strips and some die-cuts.

I cut a strip of the design paper and placed it on the side of my layout. I mix white acrylic paint with some water and make white splatters on my layout using a brush. I hope I have been able to inspire you with this layout. I had a lot of fun designing this page an I look forward to seeing you next time on the blog! XoXo, Jo

Love You More | Heart You More | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this layout featuring the Heart You More cutfile. I chose to cut the cardstock in a nice bright white and filled in the letters with a gorgeous patterned paper from Amy Tangerine.

I am loving Nuvo Mist right now and applied a liberal amount of splatty bits to the deep blue background. I used a fab sequin mix for the large hearts in the title for a bit of pizazz!

You can see here that I layered a sentiment, a directional sticker and an adorable puffy hexi in this cluster for interest. I love that a large cutfile can dictate the design and direction for your entire layout!

Check out the versatility of this cutfile. You can fill all of the sweet little hearts in or leave them as a bold contrast like I did!

I’d be honored if you took a looksee at my process video here:

I hope that you have the best scrappy day!

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!

Have A Lovely Day!

Best Friend | Chevron Stripe | Tamara Buckler

Hello my scrappy friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing a fun page featuring our old boy, Baxter. I usually create such girly pages, so it was fun flexing my muscles to create something more masculine.

I started this project by making the Chevron Stripe cut file as large as I could, stretching it out in the Silhouette Software so it took up nearly a whole piece of 12×12 cardstock. I decided to cut the file from Kraft cardstock because I like the texture and warmth that this adds.

I had intended to treat the file as more of a pocket, but once I had paired it with the starry patterned paper, I decided I liked how this filled in the gaps. To provide a little definition however, I did go around the edges of the chevron in black fine liner.

I then set about adding my photo and paper layers to my page, which I anchored toward the bottom right for balance. I tucked my title and embellishments pretty close to my photo so as to keep a tight focal point.

I added another smaller cluster to the upper left of my page, keeping it tight, and again with the aim of keeping the page balanced. I made sure to replicate elements from my main focal point/photo stack so as to tie the two together.

I really love how this came together. It really gave me a chance to use up some stash that was a bit outside my norm, and I was able to document a photo of our beautiful old boy. This cut file is so versatile, and fits right in with the boy collection over at the Cut to You shop.

Thanks for stopping by again, I’ll see you again next time.

Big loves, Tam xo

Totally Pawsome | Kelly Pyron

Hello Friends! I am happy to share my new layout using the Totally Pawsome Digital Cut File. I recently got a puppy, so this cut file was perfect for my new favorite scrappy subject! ❤

My new puppy, Beau Doodle (also known as Baby Dog) has a BIG personality. He is very playful, feisty, and energetic! I wanted my layout to reflect his personality, so I chose bright and bold colors. I used Shimelle’s “Never Grow Up” collection to create this layout.

The digital cut file was cut on white, textured cardstock and backed with some journaling cards. I used some really bright and bold patterns in the background, so I needed something in the same color palette, but toned down. I think the grid and lines from the journaling cards add interest to the title without being overly busy.

I layered lots of floral die-cuts on the top left and bottom right for some pops of fun color and shapes.. I also added the cute “wooden” sign, journaling tag, enamel dots, and sequins, to finish up my layout. I am so happy with how this turned out! If you have a canine fur-baby, you will love this cut file! It is totally pawsome! 🙂

Everyday Is An Adventure | Tarrah McLean

Hi crafty friends!

Its Tarrah back with you today to share a new outdoors themed layout featuring the awesome Everyday Is An Adventure cut file.

Everyday Is An Adventure cut file

I cut the title cut file from white cardstock and backed all the words with open spaces with different patterned papers, making sure that there were not 2 patterned papers the same in each word. Once the words were backed, I turned the entire cut file design over and added craft foam underneath. I adhered the whole thing down in the centre of a woodgrain patterned paper background. I love the dimension this gives the page and I love how the white cut file looks against the woodgrain paper.

I added craft foam underneath my family photo and adhered it to the right of the cut file design covering up the stars in the design. With this cut file design, the obvious place to add your photo is where the stars are in the design however if you didn’t want to cover the stars, you could place a smaller photo here or choose a landscape orientated photo instead.

I love to add embellishments over the top of cut files, on this layout I have added some die-cuts. In between the cut file, I have added some enamel dots on contrasting colours. I added some clear stickers to white cardstock and then adhered them just below the cut file. I also included a flair button from Just Add Flair above the die-cut near my photo. The Legenday collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio goes perfectly with this cut file and my photo, I love how my layout turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout. Be sure to check out the CUT to YOU online store for amazing cut file designs for all kinds of projects!

Happy creating!

Oh Yeah! | Floral Bouqet Set | Josefine

Hello Paperlovers,

So happy to see you on the Cut to You blog today! It’s Josefine here sharing you a new scrapbook layout that I made with these beautiful cutfiles!
For this layout I used the gorgeous cutfile Floral Bouquet Set. I just can’t get enough of these beautiful flower cutfiles from Cut to You!!

I started my page with a white cardstock sheet. I cut some beautiful design paper from the gorgeous Vicki Boutin collection “Color Study” to size and placed the design paper strokes in the center of this page.

I backed the Floral Bouquet Set flowers with green design paper and the smaller one with vellum. I placed the flowers both in the center of my scrapbook page!

I fussy cut some flowers and cut some design papers to size and placed the papers behind the photo. I decorated my page with the flowers.

I’m looking for the right word strips, Some die-cuts and stickers for a little bit more decoration.
I used the “Oh yeah “ puffy sticker as my tittle for this scrapbook layout and I decorated my tittle with some extra puffy hearts. I made some black and white splitters on my page.
For the black splatters I used some black acrylic ink and for the white splatters I used white gesso.
I loved the paint spletter look on my layouts!

Now it’s time to cut the white cardstock to size and put it on top of a 12×12 design paper. I used my sewing machine to stitched the edges of my page. I love how my page turned out! I want to thank you for visiting the Cut to You blog today and hope I was able to inspire you with this scrapbook layout!
Wishing you a beautiful and creative day today!
XoXo,
Jo

Choose Happy | Tarrah McLean

Hi crafty friends,

It’s Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new layout featuring one of the many gorgeous title cut files from the CUT to YOU store.

Choose Happy cut file

I cut out the Choose Happy design from white cardstock and backed the open space of the ‘Happy’ part of the cut file design with a pretty yellow patterned paper. Once the cut file was backed, I added craft foam underneath both the Choose and Happy words. For the Choose word, as the design is quite thin, I cut out small strips of craft foam and strategically placed them so they were not visible when I adhered the whole design to my background patterned paper.

As the background patterned paper has a two tone effect, I decided to place my title in a similar way, I wanted the bigger Happy word of the cut file to be on the darker part of the paper and the Choose word to be above on the lighter part of the paper. I was very careful when placing my photo and the layers underneath as I tucked it in underneath the Choose word. I like how cut files look overlapping photos.

To enhance the cut file, I fussy cut out soms butterflies and arranged them around the cut file and the photo. I also added smaller embellishments on top of the cut file including some chipboard and sticker phrases, bird stickers, some puffy hearts and a handmade fabric by Charm’s Creations. To finish the page, I added a clear sticker with the dots along the bottom of the cut file and I stamped the date stamp.

Thank you so much for stopping by the CUT to YOU blog today! I hope you enjoyed my layout and that you are inspired to create a layout using the amazing title cut files in the CUT to YOU store!

Happy creating!
