Meet our June GDT + freebie time! June 17, 2016 07:00 2 Comments

Good morning! We are pleased to have Sheena Rowlands joining us this month as our guest designer.

Hi Im Sheena x

A British Mum to 3 children who are growing up way too fast!

I love to create & currently quilt & crochet but Project Life & Scrapbooking are my favourite ways to record our crazy life.

I currently design for Shimelle.com & Hey Little Magpie ( UK’s number 1 online scrapbook store)

We asked Sheena to design a few pages for us and here is the first one she sent using our Heart Background cut file:

When I saw the Heart Background cut file I knew I wanted to use it as a sewing template for a layout. So instead of setting my Cameo to cut I set it to perforate the edge so I could sew around the lines of the file.

I will admit it was a labour of love but I did most of it in front of my favourite programmes. I clustered my photos with the embellishments & title so as to show as much of the sewing as possible on the finished page.

We also created this month's freebie cut file and sent it to Sheena and she created this page!

As the background for this page I used the Tic Tac Toe cut file. I reduced it to 6x6in and copied it 3 more times then flipped them & joined them back as one large square.

Do you remember kaleidoscopes from when we were kids? Well that was the look I was going for when I backed the cut file with squares of rainbow coloured paper. I kept the rest of my design central using a photo of myself & my 3 children, when did they get so tall!!, I cut the Always from the Today, Forever, Always cut file in black then cut it again outer edge only this time from watercolour paper which I randomly painted before adding the black edging back over.

Super fun page right! Here is a peek at the cut file for this page:

True Love {Heart Background} July 08, 2015 07:00 1 Comment

Hi everyone!

Melissa here with a layout showcasing one of the awesome background cut files in the shop.

I love using background cut files because it adds interest and rhythm to a page. They are especially fun for a clean and simple scrapper - which is what I use to label myself. Now, I just love to experiment and one of those ways of experimentation, is utilizing these cut files to their full potential. 

Here is the page I created:

 

I really love this heart background! I chose to use the .png version and traced it. After releasing the compound path, I left some of the hearts filled. Then, with the negative part cut out, I used gelatos to create a watercolor effect and layered them. On top of the color, I added some stencil work using modeling paste and other embellishments. I felt so artsy! And, the best part, it was super easy.

 

Thanks for swinging by today!
