GO, SEE, DO | Marie Hirst

Hi Guys,

So this is a first for me – my first EVER traveler’s notebook and I love it! I used the TN Go, See, Do cutfile as this was the perfect statement for the first spread as this notebook is going to document our recent family holiday. You can find the cutfile here in the CUT to YOU shop.

The first thing I did was resize the cutfile so that it would fit easily on my page (4 inches across) and then backed it using papers from the Out and About Collection from Pinkfresh Studio.

I then embellished the page with various pieces of ephemera from the same range, sticking to the greeny-blue colours and the yellows.

On the opposite page, I used more of the papers from the Out and About range and I added small photographs of various places we had seen on our holiday, some more ephemera and some puffy alphas to spell out the name of where we had been (which only just fit on the page – more luck than judgement here!)

The spread was finished off with various travel-themed stamped images.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope this inspires you! Remember, there are lots of cutfiles suitable for traveler’s notebooks in the shop which you can find here. Enjoy!

Until next time,

GO SEE DO | Michelle Stokes

Hi friends, It’s Michelle back here today with a fresh new layout to share. This week I challenged myself to GO BIG with a dramatic title and more than 1 photo. I think I achieved just that using the fun GO SEE DO cut file

This awesome cut file was created for Travellers Notebook crafters, but it’s also PERFECT to use as a MASSIVE title on any general scrapbooking creation! I do LOVE a massive cut file title!!

I went big with this file and resized it in Silhouette Studio to roughly 10 inches tall and cut it out on white cardstock. I used fresh coloured pattern papers from the Heidi Swapp Colour Fresh collection to back all the individual letters before adhering to the centre of the backing cardstock using foam tape for dimension.

I added the two photos of Leila, my nephew and 2 of our cute little friends to the left and right of the arrows, layered with extra pattern papers to compliment all the colours used to back the cut file. I also tucked in a few ephemera pieces too

These 2 girls have so much fun together!

I wanted to add a couple of words for journalling, so I added these to the lined pattern paper used to back the O at the bottom of the cut file

Lastly I added a couple more ephemera pieces to the bottom right of the layout and a few flowers to the edges of the cut file. I cut the backing cardstock down in size and adhered to a multi colour pattern paper before splattering the entire page with my favourite gold colour shine.

Thats all from me today. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing my work today. Be sure to check in with us in the CUT to YOU facebook group as we all LOVE to see the amazing creations that you all make with our cut files.

Theres also been a new release of files in the CUT to YOU store, so make sure you check that out too!!

Until Next time, Happy Scrapping
