Hey friends, welcome to the JustNick Digital Cut File Shop blog! I have a 12x12 layout for you today using the pretty Butterfly cut file.

I love how delicate and lovely this cut file is and felt that it was perfect for documenting the memory and photos for my layout.

In the Silhouette Studio, I placed the cut file in the center of my patterned paper, using the mirror tool to create the wings of the butterfly in an alternating pattern down the center.  Once cut, I flipped the wings over to reveal the back of the patterned paper; I stitched the center of the wings onto the pink backing paper, leaving the wings free.

I gave the wings a bit of a curve so that they would be more dimensional on the layout.  I love how this looks with the solid paper behind the patterned wing.  

I added some gold splatters to the layout which gives the butterflies some sparkle and shine!  Photos were added opposite each wing.  I love how the half-butterfly adds the opportunity to add the photo in that area!

Be sure to hop over to the JustNick shop to check out the Butterfly cut file; you will love this one so much!

You can also find a process video for this layout over on my YouTube channel!

Have a wonderful day!
