Hands up if you have a cutting machine like a Silhouette, Cricut, or ScanNCut. How often do you cut something delicate and light? Today’s guest artist Piroska is here with a scrapbooking idea for just that! -Shimelle
When I start making a layout, I often grab a cut file – it helps me to arrange the layout and I really love the special effect it gives to my pages. For today’s post I used the Stained Glass Rose digital cut file of CUT to YOU.
First, I cut the cut file from white cardstock and started to back them with some patterned papers of the Splendor collection of My Mind’s Eye. This collection is an older one, but I still love its beautiful florals and colours. By backing a cut file, I like to chose papers with smaller patterns, and the Splendor collection has beautiful B side papers.
The circle cut file inspired me to use more circles on my layout, so I cut several circles in different sizes with my Sizzix, using the 662229 Framelits by Tim Holtz for Sizzix.
Although the A side papers are also beautiful, I chose only B side papers for these. Then I arranged the cut file and the circles on a white cardstock and placed my photo. It looked too plain, so I decided to add a border on the upper side from the B side of the Remember paper.
My favourite part of creating is decorating the layout. I cut a pink embellishment with the Embroidery Frame die of Lora Bailora’s Abril collection. I added some floral chipboard elements from the Splendor collection and cut some floral elements from white cardstock with the help of the Flower Wreath, the Flowers Bouquet and the Spring Branches dies of Lora Bailora’s Abril collection.
I really love the white on effect of these embellishments. Finally, I added my title chipboard from the chipboard elements from the Splendor collection and my journaling – which is a line from the B side of the Remember patterned paper.
