Lovely | Kelly Pyron

Hello creative friends! I am excited to share my newest layout using the Sweetheart Background Cut File! I was given the theme “Love” to inspire this Design Team project so I chose this cut file from the Cut to You shop.

This cut file paired perfectly with the photo of my beautiful daughters. I used this mixed media-style background paper from the CVS Daydream Collection along with some Heidi Swapp mist under the cut-file, to create an interesting base for my photos and embellishments.

I added some sparkle and shine with sequins, mirrored acrylic pieces and nests of gold thread, tucked between layers and layers of lovely florals, hearts, and rainbows.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my latest creation with another fabulous Cut to You cut file! Seriously, the cut files from the shop do most of the work for you! All you have to do is add some photos and a couple of embellishments and voila’ , you have a gorgeous layout!

CUT to YOU | Bee My Valentine | Bee My Valentine Cut File

Hello Everyone, it’s Piroska here today with my latest layout for CUT to YOU. To make it more exciting for the team and more inspiring for you, from February each Design Team member has a special challenge to fulfill. This time my task was to use a black cut file – if you know me, you know that I hardly ever used a black cut file before! So it was really a challenge for me! 😛

As Valentine’s Day is getting closer I went with that theme. I cut the Bee My Valentine cut file from last year’s release from black textured cardstock.

I got some older Valentine’s Day collections from my stash, I chose the My Love paper from the Heart Day collection of Crate Paper as my background.

I backed the cut file with the Hugs & Kisses paper, and the bee with the Adore You paper from the same collection.

As the black cut file is big and impressive, I didn’t add many embellishments to the layout. I matted my photo with the same patterned papers, and added some stickers and chipboard stickers from the Crate Paper Main Squeeze collection, and some ScrapUp phrase stickers in Hungarian.

What do you think, did I manage to fulfill the requirements for the challenge? Would love to hear, what you think. Thanks for being with me today, let’s get crafty with more cut files, cut white or black 😉 Visit the shop, you can find a gorgeous new release there!

I have used Crate Paper Lala Love collection.Untitled-30I cut the Circle of Love cut file measuring 10.5×10.5 inches in white cardstock, I then added it to another piece of white cardstock measuring 11×11 inches.34F7DEBC-FD3E-40FB-885C-5F906CCBB853I then used the release compound function (Silhouette Cameo) and pulled out the hearts, I then divided them into two and cut using two different papers/patterns. I added each heart with foam tape to create a 3D effect. I  hand stitched the inner circle to add definition and texture. I added my photo off centre with foam tape.1B08B8AD-076D-4A84-890C-43F59D75823BI added rubber embellishments on my photo to draw your eye to it.83A37D4F-32C8-4A3A-8298-52B4DB7EA405I tucked under my photo a floral die cut to break up the white of the circle. I used a brighter coloured paper  to add my final page border, again to provide contrast against the white. I couldn’t resist adding this gorgeous tasselled heart to finish off!34EE8D5A-365A-4810-B3F2-E796EFA273F2This cut file is perfect for any Valentine layout or card!
