Hello hello hello it's Cathy here and I'm back with another layout!  I don't know about you but even though it's still bitterly cold and gloomy in my region of the world I can't help but long for the beautiful colours of spring!  For my layout today I was inspired by all the fun and colourful scraps that I have in my stash.  Some are relatively new and some are from years ago, but either way I loved combining them together to make this fun image!  I used the Rosette Background 2, and originally I was using it as intended, as flowers, but once I was all done backing it I really loved how much it looked like wonky bubbles, so I decided to document my daughter's bubble blowing adventure last spring.  Backing the cut file with multiple papers was a wee bit time consuming, but I just love the end result!  Thanks so much for stopping by and if you go to my Youtube channel you can check out how I made my layout!

Hi friends,

it's Laureen with you today and I am excited to share a new project with you!

Today I was able to use any design from the store - which tends to be a little overwhelming for me, since there are so many great ones!

I don't know about you, but I am LOVING all the new collections out there so I definetly wanted to use them for my project.


For my cut file I used the Stack Em Up Background and modified it a little, so it would only cut a portion on the top and bottom.

One of my favorite papers from the new Dear Lizzy collection is the one with the black and white florals. I fuzzy cut a bunch of them out and used Prima Marketing Water Soluble Oil Pastels to color them in and love how some of them look like they are stamps.

To make the florals and papers pop I used a black and white picture of my best friend and I and only added my title. The page was done in no time and I am absolutely loving it!

I hope I could inspire you today!


Have a great day,

Laureen

She's A Hoot! October 29, 2016 07:00

Hey everybody, it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout!  This time I'm focusing on Halloween, and I don't know about any of you, but sometimes traditional Halloween icons and colours don't really match what I'm doing.  For my daughter's second Halloween she was a cute pink owl.  When it came time to scrap the picture I knew I wanted to go in a different direction, but that doesn't mean I can't use an awesome cut file to emphasize my theme!  I picked the lovely feather background and cut it from white cardstock.  I backed my cutfile with some Pink Paislee Fancy Free paper and then backed the entire thing on some polka dot paper.  Since I had such a busy background I decided to keep my layering and embellishing to a minimum.  I used a white doily behind the pictures to add a little bit of visual interest and I splatters some bright pink colour shine to top it off!  I love the simple sweetness of this layout, the femininity and softness of it compliments the photos perfectly, and the feather background creates such an interesting look.  So remember, when you're scrapping your Halloween photos don't just stop at the Halloween cutfiles, there are lots that you can easily work into whatever theme you are going with!

Hi everyone it's Cathy and I'm back with another layout!  This time I'm clocking in with a whopping 3 cut files on one layout!  I started by using the Funky Piechart cut file and the Live Simply cut file.  I resized them  so that I would have circles of various sizes to create a fun playful effect on my page.  I backed my cut files with scraps that were just hanging around in my craft room, keeping in mind the colours in the photo.  I decided to go with a white on white look so I used white cardstock for my background as well.  With so many bold circles going on I didn't really need to do much embellishing so I only used a few chipboard stickers to create a little cluster.  I also used a cut file for my title and decided to cut it in a bold red paper.  When I cut a shape or image like the title, that has lots of thin parts I like to use either a solid paper or a very subtle, small pattern so that I don't lose the readability of my title.  I propped my circles up on foam and then added some black mist and my layout was complete!  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!

Hi cut file fans - Laureen here with you today to share a new layout at the end of the month!

I was assigned to use any of the August cut files - which was easy, because I absolutely loved all the new files that Nicole made for August!

They are just awesome right?! Keep an eye out for September, because they are going to be just as good!

I already used quite a few of the new files for projects for a different Design Team - massive love for all the floral ones. Therefore I didn't want to use them again and decided to go with two other beautiful designs!

I love to use cut files as a big background element and either back backgrounds with patterned paper or use the cut file to cut out my patterned paper.

That is what I did for this layout - I used a Dear Lizzy Paper and cut the Compressed Chevron Background.

For me personally, it was missing something just regularly adhered to the page, so I took my beloved sewing machine and sewed the entire design down. Took some time, because my machine didn't want to stitch the way I wanted it to, but I managed to make it work.

Now for my title I absolutely love the new "You make my heart smile" cut file with great phrases in it. The title matched the picture of my sister and her boyfriend from her graduation perfectly.

 

Here are some close-ups for you.

 

 

Okay that is it for todays post -

I really hope you enjoyed it and I will catch you guys next time!

Good morning JustNick fans! It's been a while since I have been on the blog with a regular post! I am here to share a page with you using a couple of my favorite cut files from some newer designs in the store.

I really wanted to use the Delicate Florals cut file and so I started with that, along as a quote I found on Pinterest for my title.

I cut the flowers out of several Dear Lizzy papers and lined them along the bottom of my page in varying sizes.

I also used two of our font files on this page - Script Alpha 2 and Outline Alphas

I love the simplicity of the outline font with the flowy script font!
