Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. I am so happy and feel so honored that I have been asked to continue working with CUT to YOU, with these amazing cut files! 🙂 For today’s post I chose the Love You More Title cut file, and was inspired by the iNSD 2021 moodboard of Scrapbook Werkstatt. I really liked the lilac on the moodboard and the colours, so I wanted to show them on my scrapbook layout.
First I cut the Love You More Title Digital Cut File from white cardstock. This time I didn’t want to back it, so I went on making my background. I made a circle on a white cardstock using the packaging technique with a Catherine Pooler ink pad (colour Sweet Sixteen).
Then I fussy cut the circles of a patterned paper from the Watercolor Floral collection of Prima Marketing Inc and I arranged them in a circle. I glued down the cut file and placed my photo.
I cut little flowers from some patterned papers of the Watercolor Floral collection with a WRMK flower punch, to create the lilacs. I glued them inside of the cut file. I really like the special effect it gives to the cut file.
I’m up on the blog today sharing a cute Easter layout with photos from earlier this year. My daughter wanted this cute bunny hat, and I knew I wanted to use some cute Easter Cut Files, so we really had a win win situation!
I started by cutting the Bunny Kisses Easter Wishes Cut File quite large and then backed each of the words with some bright Cocoa Vanilla papers to create a really happy and playful mood.
I popped the entire file up on foam tape to provide extra impact and separation from the busy background paper, and positioned it toward the bottom of my page.
This allowed to attach my photos to the top of the page, slightly overlapping the top of the Cut File. With the Cut File being so big and bright, I didn’t need to do a lot to embellish the page, just tucking in a few fun bits and pieces in around my photos.
I love how this all came together. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hello my crafty CTY Peeps! It is Ali here with you today sharing a Disney layout using the new cut file, Feel the Magic! My husband took me to Disney World to celebrate my birthday last month and we had a wonderful time. We didn’t know what to expect since it was our first trip in 18 months since Covid hit, but I was happy to be able to celebrate my birthday at Walt Disney World.
I am so excited that Gwen created these cut files so I can scrapbook my Disney trip pictures this next month. Feel the Magic cut file was a perfect one to go with the picture of my husband and me holding Tinkerbell with the castle behind us. She is magic with all her fairy dust! I used a Disney collection to back up the cut file with all different Disney papers and added foam tape to pop it. I love the title at an angle, it gives the layout an even more magic feel to it.
I added mickey’s glove to the letter A and it looks like he is waving at you. I decorated around the cut file with even more star stickers. You can never have too many stars!
I added a banner sticker to the upper left hand corner with some enamel dots in between the banners and thought it was a perfect touch to frame the layout. I took some black paint and splattered it all around the page to make it look like Tinkerbell was leaving a little trail of her fairy dust.
Make sure to head to the shop and check out all the new June designs that Gwen created. I am in love with all of them and can’t decide what I will scrap next from my birthday trip at Disney!
I hope you get to feel the magic this summer and get to travel! It’s wonderful!
Hello everyone! It is Ali here with you today sharing my Choose Happy layout for the Everyday challenge. I must say this was a challenge for me since I mostly scrap events and not everyday moments. The Choose Happy cut file in the shop caught my attention right away because this is how I choose to live life.
I knew I really wanted to make this title pop so I used a bright bold stripe Doodlebug Design Paper to cut the title out on my Cameo. The colors match my polka dot dress so I was happy about that. I used foam tape to pop up the first layer of my title without the Happy letters inside. I then added two layers of foam tape to pop the word happy so it really stood out on my page.
I added a colorful heart flair from Scrappin Happy Studio for the middle of the A and some Doodlebug Design bling for the letter P. I love the quotations around the title too, because I consider this my motto. Below is the link to this wonderful cut file.
I had so much fun doing something different with this title cut file and making the flowers to match my dress.
I hope you enjoy this layout and remember to always Choose Happy! Life is short and you only live once!
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 ^ 😍!
Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure you’re getting amongst all the fun stuff over at Cut to You HQ on Facebook!
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!
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!
I’m up on the blog today sharing my latest layout. This time I’m using the Why Hello There Cut File, which is a new one for me.
I have been really inspired by the layouts coming out lately with fringing within the Cut File, like this one here from DT member Belinda. But instead of fringing, I wanted to play with the idea of patchwork.
To do this, I manipulated the Cut File in Silhouette Studio and removed the internal cut lines. This cut the file as one whole piece, which I was then able to lay my little squares of paper onto to make the patchwork look I was going for.
I also cut the file as designed by Gwen and laid this over the top of my patchwork background. I felt the file was getting a little lost against all the busy little squares, so I proceeded to outline the title using a black fine liner.
I then popped the whole file up on foam tape, and chose a black background for extra contrast. I tucked my photo and layers behind the file, and centred these on the page.
I added additional squares of paper along the top and bottom of the page, adding some black stitching, to again accentuate the patch work feel.
I’m so happy with how fun and playful this page ended up being. I’m sure this Title file is meant for babies or something cute 😂 but I love how it worked with my funny selfie!!
Happy Easter my Crafty Peeps! It is Ali here with you on this Spring day, sharing my Easter layout using the Bunny Kisses Easter Wishes cut file. I am so excited that Spring has arrived and the Easter bunny is on his way!
The picture of me was taken on Easter day when I just got back from a girls scrapbooking trip in Utah and we were given these cute bunny ears to wear. I thought this title was perfect to go with my Easter picture. I used the new Easter/Spring line from Simple Stories called Bunnies and Blooms. I love backing up large titles with many different pattern papers. 6 x 6 paper pads are perfect for cut files if you are trying to save your larger sheets. for backgrounds.
I love adding dimension to my layouts so I always use foam tape on the back of my cut files. To add even more dimension to this page I pop dotted the tulips and used them for a bottom border of my title. It helps ground the cut file and I think it looks adorable.
I added some cute embellishments to my cut file that included this adorable foam girl bunny sticker, puffy mouse sticker and some enamel dots. I also like to add brads to the middle of my letters. You can also use enamel dots or other stickers to give your cut file some attention.
I added these love birds kissing and they are so sweet perched on top of my title. You will love using this big title cut file for your Easter layout.
I am sending everyone bunny kisses and Easter Wishes this weekend!
