Forever Happy | Winter Florals | Sophie Delorme February 15, 2021 07:00
Hello all !
It’s Sophie here and I have another layout to share !
This time I used the gorgeous Winter Florals cut file that was just released in January !
I created a page with a photo of my sweet daughter outside in the snow, and the Mintay collection “Winterland” was just perfect for that.
I used a woodgrain paper for my background and thought that cutting the cut file on white cardstock would stand out really well. I cut the woodgrain paper 10 x 12 inches to leave a space on the left of the page to add a blue paper strip and white cardstock.
I cut the Winter Florals a few times in different sizes with my cutting machine and left them completely white. No colouring, and no backing with patterned paper. Instead, I created a huge floral and leaves cluster on the bottom right corner of my photo. I made sure to adhere only the base of the cut files so that the leaves would be free of movement. It adds a lot of dimension to the page.
I added fussy cut leaves, winter flowers and poinsettias to that cluster, many of them with adhesive foam, and I love the overall result !
I splattered droplets of white acrylic paint to the background to mimic snow. My title is a combination of Pink Paislee stickers and exclusive foam stickers from Hip Kit Club.
Finally, I used a beautiful frame cut out of patterned paper from the same Mintay collection and used it to hand write my journaling, and decorated it with a lovely fussy cut bird.
I love the winter feel to that page ! Using cut files like this really doesn’t have to be complicated ! I didn’t alter them at all, just used them as they are ! But it really gives to the layout that little extra special addition that makes it a piece of art !
I hope you were inspired by this cut file and my page today !
I’ll see you soon !
