Hello scrappy friends! 🙂 Today I am sharing a layout featuring the Hearts-on-Strings cut file, one of the fabulous new May releases. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this fun and whimsical cutfile.

I created a mixed media background to pull in some more of the richer pink color similar to the flowers.

Keeping a repetitive and fun mixture of patterned paper behind the hearts keeps the eye moving across the page.

Some large fussu cut flowers and butterflies add to the whimsy of this super fun cut file!

Have you checked out the CUT to YOU HQ facebook page? We’d love to see what you are creating. 🙂

Hello scrappy friends! Hoping this post finds you healthy and well. I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to believe that it’s already April. Spring has arrived in my neck of the woods and after quite a snowy Winter, I look forward to being outdoors again and watching new life emerge.

Today I am sharing a layout created with the beautiful Bethany Floral Background cut file. Ive had my eyes on this beauty the first time I saw it and I am finally using it.

I have to apologise for not taking a photo of the background work in progress – it completely slipped my mind, but I created it using the packaging method along with some paint brush splatters.

I felt like I needed some more depth so I added some stitching around the inside of the flowers. (I really need to learn to create french knots which would have been another super way to add texture here.)

The finishing details were some Thickers and butterflies. It keeps this light and whimsical.
