Hi friends -

it's Laureen back with you and I am excited to share my layout for today.

For my layout I used the "Some people" cut file which I had in my library for ages but never got around to use it - until now.

I used my Silhouette to draw it out for me shifted to the left edge and then began piercing holes - a whole lot of tiny holes. After that I used my watercolor pencils in orange, yellow and a nude to fill in the cut file.

Then I searched for thread in matching colors to go along with the colors.

I wanted to trash this a MILLION times during stitching - all those itty bitty spots and it didn't look like anything I had imagined.

After I finished all the stitching I acutally began liking it - this layout really grew on me. Before I started I already knew I would use a big picture on the right and create some sort of border in the middle to cover up the edge of the picture.

I fuzzy cut a lot of florals from the Felicity Jane Maggie kit and layered them in the middle of my page.

At first I thought I would use other embellishments from the kit as well but nothing really felt right so I didn't use any extra embellishments - but I think because of the large amount of stitching and the big picture no embellishments were needed.

 

I truly hope you enjoyed todays inspiration and bring out your needle -

have a great day!

Laureen

Hi cut file fans - 

I hope you had a great week so far and are looking forward to the weekend and some crafty time - hopefully!

Today my task was to use any design from the store - not that hard right?! You think!

When you have access to all these amazingly beautiful files you have a hard time choosing, believe me. Then, once I found the design I wanted to use, the next question was to just cut it and back it or stitch it.

In the end I defintely wanted to use my Felicity Jane Emeline kit to go along with my picture and knew I would just back my cut file with all the different papers from the kit.

I just love the look of Quilts on layouts and why not use a cut file to achieve that look whitout all the cutting of fiedly tiedly small itty bitty pieces and then all the sewing.

The Quilted Circle Background was just perfect and easy - I modified it in the way, that it didn't cut my entire background, because if you know my crafting you may also be aware that I like my white space ;) Therefore I only let two rows of the Quilt and backed those with all the papers :)

First I started with the inner pieces of the circle and worked my way out. All there was left to do was to embellish around my picture and this layout was done!


Easy peasy - so go ahead and try to achieve a Quilt look for your next layout using a cut file ;)

Have a great day and onto the next time -

xx Laureen
