Product Focus | Cut files with Tarrah, Ashley and Michelle

Hey there Hip Kit Peeps! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas?!! It’s time for our product focus and this week we are focusing on using some of the Christmas themed cut files from this year and last year! Today we have Tarrah, Ashley and Michelle sharing their projects with us.


Hi everyone! It’s Tarrah McLean back today to share my layout with you focusing on cut files! I decided to use the awesome Candy Cane cut files designed by Orange Gearle for our 12 Days of Giving this year! 

I used the beautiful November 2017 Hip Kits to create my layout today! I cut the candy canes from the one of the red papers found in the November 2017 Main Kit!

I was able to match the colours in my photo using some choice embellishments….I stuck with the red and green to allow my photo to pop!

The Peppermint Everything piece at the bottom was perfect for this candy cane filled page!

Happy creating!

Hey y’all! Ashley here with a simple layout using a November cut file in an unconventional way!

So this totally happened by accident. As I was cutting my circle element with snowflakes cut out, I actually decided to use the negative portion, rather than the actual cut file itself. I LOVED the way this came out.

I added some simple embellishments focused on the center of the page and that’s all!

Here’s a look at my page!

Hi everyone, it is Michelle here sharing my latest layout with the November 2017 Hip Kits and the cut file that I have chosen was designed by Elsie Robinson for our 12 days of giveways in early December.

I chose to ungroup the file and use the ‘string lights’ for my background by cutting it out in the ‘Brrrr’ patterned paper.  I used the negative image and backed it onto the ‘Warm Wishes’ patterned paper both of these are from the Sweater Weather collection by American Crafts.  I really like how the black pops out on my page!  I then used the cut file to add my title along it as part of my design.
