Hello everyone, it's Gina with you today. I have been playing with the new Rosey Posey cut file and I just couldn't wait to share today's post with you!
To create my layout, first I dropped a few drops of yellow and pink spray mist against a white cardstock background. Next, I cut the Rosey Posey cut file from white cardstock and adhered it to my layout. I used a wide tipped foam brush and painted over it with watercolors to make the cut file stand out. I also cut out the cloud and hearts from the Sweet Hearts cut file, painted over them with watercolors and adhered them to the right side of my layout. I trimmed a strip of word patterned paper from the Amy Tangerine Rise and Shine collection and added it to the top of my page. I finished by adding my title, die cuts, journaling and embellishments.
Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost Friday, and I hope you're looking forward to a little bit of crafting this weekend! We've got some great new cut file sets that are available in The Cut Shoppe today, and I have a new layout to share with you, using the Hello Love 12x12 background cut file.
I decided that I only wanted to use a portion of the 12x12 cut file, so I released the compound path and deleted the last two rows of the cut file. Then I regrouped everything, and rotated it just a bit to add a little tilt to the design.
I knew this would allow me to have a lot of the cut file on the layout, but still have some White space on the left hand side to add my photos and title. Since I've been sick this week, I decided to go the quick and easy route and add a large striped patterned paper behind the cut file. This gave me a multi-color look, without having to back each individual circle. And I also used some acrylic paint to add a little color to some of the hearts.

Hello everyone, it's Danielle here with you today. I have been playing with the new Over the Moon cut file set, the 'out of this world' part was a perfect title for this picture. The picture is taken in Yosemite on Sentinel Dome, from where you're having an amazing view on both El Capitan and Half Dome.
Happy Monday, friends! Missy here. Have you seen this adorable new Light It Up Cut File available in the store yet? Oh my goodness...it's just the cutest "idea" ever! I knew right away I wanted to use these little light bulbs on a layout.
I started out by cutting the bulbs on white cardstock. Once I knew how I wanted my design to go, I pulled out some papers from Crate Paper and American Crafts. These soft colors matched my photos. My little Paige found the powder one day and you can guess what happened! She actually did this a few times, and of course I had to take pictures every time! :D
I wanted each bulb to look different. The first one I used gelatos to color it pink and grey and then backed it with vellum. The center one I backed with striped washi tape and colored it with a few blue gelatos. The third one I heat embossed with silver powder. I used a striped stamp and made random marks on it so it would look kind of uneven. I love how they all turned out, and they represent this "great idea" of spreading powder all over the living room...haha!
Here's a closer look. I added some gesso and watercolor to my background to break up the solid white behind the bulbs.
I used the word "idea" from one of the bulbs to make part of my title. I simply enlarged the cut file and then cut out the word and colored it with a gelato. That cute mouth flair button (from A Flair For Buttons) is actually from a Valentine's collection, but it totally reminded me of powder!
Here's a look at the texture and layers at the top of the layout...a heat embossed wooden veneer heart, an inked wood veneer speech bubble, another flair and some tangled thread.
And one more of the simple bottom half...another heart and a cute Freckled Fawn arrow paper clip.
I hope this gives you some inspiration on how to use these cute light bulbs on a page...I just think they're really cute and can go with just about any photo.
Hey there, Amy here to share a layout I created using one of the fabulous cut files you can grab for free by signing up for our newsletter. If you haven't noticed, I really love using the free cut files Ashley creates for us. This one was perfect since I had so many photos I wanted to include on this layout.
Here are a few closeups. I put my pictures on the solid circles and used the open circles for patterned paper and different embellishments from the February Paper Camellia kit.
If you haven't already, make sure you sign up for the newsletter here (or visit the link at the top of the blog). I promise you'll LOVE all the free cut files Ashley creates for it.
It's Gina here, and I'm stopping in today to share a layout using the fun Let Them Eat Pie cut file set!
I loved this cut file set the instant that I saw it, and knew that I just couldn't wait to use it on a layout.
How to: Splash watercolors, spray inks and white paint across a white cardstock background, set aside to dry. Cut pie chart design from white cardstock paper (I cut it four times). Cut pieces of various patterned papers and adhere behind pie chart die cuts (I intentionally left some spaces open). Cut 4 small hearts from patterned paper. Adhere pie chart pieces, hearts, thickers, die cuts and stickers to background paper. Finish by adding word stamp, photo, wood veneer pieces and loose thread.
