Cheers | Ali Skifton

Cheers my CTY friends! It is Ali here with you today sharing another fun layout using the Tropical Punch cut file. This picture was taken at Walt Disney World with my two friends and me. We were celebrating with our tropical drinks because we just completed the Disney Princess Half Marathon!

I used the new Cocoa Vanilla Sunkissed collection to stay with that tropical vibe we had going on with our drinks. I had so much fun backing up this perfect cut file with these cute Sunkissed papers. I tried to make it as close as I could to the real drink and I think it turned out pretty well. I used the wood epoxy buttons to decorate the centers of the flowers.

I used a few die cut ephemera pieces, puffy stickers , and clear stickers to complete the layout. I always add foam tape to the back of my cut files to add some dimension to my page. It makes a world of difference to the look of your layout when you do that.

Here is the link to this fabulous drink cut file created by Gwen. https://createdbygwen.com.au/product/tropical-punch-cut-file/

Cheers to vacations and warmer weather headed our way!

Love, Ali xoxo

Look on the Sunny Side | Rachel Lowe

I fell in love with the Tropical Punch cut file the minute I saw it! I have created a summer layout (of course) using a photo of me in Capri Italy and yes we had a drink just like this!

And here is my layout which I created with Crate Paper Sunny Days collection.

I used a pale pink cardstock to cut the outer of the cut file, which once attached to my page a added machine stitching to add definition. I then chose a pink and blue striped paper to paper piece the tropical punch glass/cup. I added the flowers with foam tape to add dimension.

I paper pieced the umbrella keeping it in the pink and blue hues. Adding pops of colours is important when your layout has a majority colour, so I added a bright green for the leaves, a bright yellow for the lemon and peach patterns for the fruits on a stick, I used a blue and gold patterned paper for the straws.

Again I added some elements with foam tape to continue adding dimension to my page.

I didn’t use a mat for my photo but instead placed it in amongst the printed floral border, and creating an embellishment cluster to the side of my photo.

I added my title ‘Look on the Sunny Side’ in between my photo and cut file to connect them visually.

I finished my layout off by adding embellishments that added to the tropical feel of my layout.

This cut file is a wonderful page builder for any layout. To see this and other new release cut files head over to www.cuttoyou.com.au

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful and safe week.
