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,

Bernii Grof | Traveller’s Notebook

Hi there, Bernii here with you today sharing not one but two travellers notebook spreads using the amazing Cut To You cut files. I LOVE all things TN’s and love that Gwen has created cut files that allow us scrappers to add that something a little bit extra into our inserts. So let me how you the first spread that I have created.

Ok let me show you the second travellers notebook spread that I have created with another of the amazing cut files. I love these word cut files as they take away the stress of creating a title. In fact the title is what inspired this spread.

‘Currently’ TN spread | Rachel Dutko

Hi everyone!

Rachel with you today for my first share on the CUT TO YOU blog!

I have a page in my new TN to share with you today.

I have decided to keep my memory keeping of 2019 

quick and easy in a TN format so I don’t end 

up getting too far behind!

I have created a simple cover for my TN, using the  

TN 2019 Best Yet cut file and some washi. 

I love the stars on the cover of the notebook 

so I didn’t want to cover them up too much.

I love how the ‘2019’ cut from white card stock

really jumps off the page.

Now let’s take a look at my ‘Currently’ spread –

I have used the TN Currently cut file on the left hand side.

I cut it twice from two different shades of pink card stock 

to create a drop shadow.

I then backed it with some lilac paper and outlined with blue pen. 

I cut the Sketchy Squares cut file from black cardstock

 then cut it into smaller pieces as embellishments on both sides. 

I continued the same patterned papers on the 

right hand side under my photo.

I finished off the spread with some stickers, 

journalling, doodles and some splatters.

Head over to the shop to check out what’s new. 

There are some gorgeous cuts in the latest release!

Thanks for looking

Beautiful You | Tamara Buckler

Hello Scrappy Friends,

I’m excited to be sharing with you over on the new CUT to YOU blog today. This page is a little different to the bright colourful layouts I’ve been creating lately, but it’s good to shake things up from time to time!

I used the XOXOXO Cut File that was released in February in the new Travellers Notebook range. I really wanted this Cut File to have a lot of impact, so I increased its size to work on a 9×12 layout and cut it out from black card stock.

In order get the effect of this being a cut out in my background, I had to use what is essentially the negative of the Cut File (or the bit you would normally through away) and add back in the tiny centre pieces. I worked on emphasising the impact of the Cut File by backing it with a simple black and white patterned paper, and then added in a heap of messy white stitching.

By using the Cut File this way, I was then able to use the main piece of the Cut File amongst the many layers backing my photo.

I then added in some various other bits and bobs, a few splatters on white paint, some alphas and puffy stickers, and then it was job done! As always, the awesome Cut File has done most of the work for me!

Thanks for stopping by today. Make sure you jump over to the shop or to our FB group to share your creations.

Until next time,

Big Loves,

How to use our Digital Cut Files

Hi Creative friends,

I thought I’d pop by today to share some tips on using our digital cut files.  I do get a few questions, especially from those of you who are new to cutting the cut files so I’ve put together this quick step by step to help.

How to use our Digital Cut Files

Your cut file will be received in PNG and JPG format and can be used on any electronic die cutting machine.  Most machines will prefer you use the PNG file.

  1. Simply open your software and select NEW.
  2. Next, find the location of your saved file and IMPORT.
  3. Use your TRACE tool to trace the image and prepare for cutting.
  4. Resize and position as required and send to your machine.
  5. Add to your project to make it beautiful!

For SVG files, which are most commonly used with the Brother Scan & Cut machine, please visit our ETSY store, CUTtoYOU.

I personally have a Silhouette CAMEO 3 Machine and will put together a step x step tutorial for that machine for you coming soon.
