Be Happy, Dream Big | Tamara Buckler

Hey hey CTY friends,

I’m up on the blog today sharing my latest layout featuring the Leaf Edge Cut File from one of our recent releases.

I have actually used this Cut File twice – however I made it in to one cut. In the Silhouette software, I duplicated the Leaf Edge Cut File, and flipped one vertically. I then lined these up side by side, and merged the Cut Files in the centre.

I backed the Cut File in green patterned paper, and then popped each leaf up on foam tape.

I wanted to tuck the bottom edge of the file underneath the edge of the patterned paper, and I accomplished this by actually raising up the patterned paper as well.

I’m super happy with the way this page turned out. I actually can’t wait to use this file again, I have more ideas!!

Thanks for stopping by today, and make sure you have joined us over at Cut to You HQ for all the latest updates.

Big Loves,

Hey hey everyone,

I’m back on the blog today with a fun and bright layout featuring two of our awesome Cut Files – the Skate Page builder and the Christmas Banners Background.

I have wanted to use the Skate page builder Cut File for aaages! And I knew I had the perfect picture for it, I just had to find it! I sized the Cut File in my Silhouette software to suit a 9 x 12in layout, and cut the skates from some pink patterned paper and the title from white cardstock.

I backed the skates and the title with a mixture of paper scraps and some awesome rainbow paper from the Photo Play Tulla and Norbert collection. I also used silver washi tape for the ‘metal’ areas on the skates.

I was a bit bummed after I backed my title, as I usually like to be deliberately random when I am using a mixture of papers to back the letters – but because these words were seperate, I didn’t notice that I used the rainbow paper for the first letter of both. Not a big deal, just one of my quirks! We all have those right?

I hadn’t planned on using the Christmas Banner on this page, but I had it cut and sitting on my desk, and it fit perfectly in that corner, so why not!? Perfect! The file had been cut in white card stock, and because I had decreased it’s size so much, and the lines are very thin. This made it a little tricky to back, so it’s not perfect, but I’m okay with that!

To finish off my page I added some wood veneer and acrylic embellishments from Corbett Creations, and really these small touches are all it needed as the Cut Files speak for themselves.

Hope you’re all staying safe and well.
