Extreme Cut Files | Lauren Hender

Hello everyone! Welcome back to the Hip Kit Club blog. Today I have been challenged to create a layout using cut files. So instead of using the new ones I thought it would be fun to dig back into the archives and use an older cut file. When I saw this perfect hot air balloon I knew it was the one.

Choosing a cut file can be tricky at times. When your working with larger cut files that are detailed and are a ‘something’ eg like this hot air balloon you don’t want to hide it as you want the viewer to know it is a hot air balloon, so the trick is to to pick the right sized photo and pick a photo with a lot of pop.

In my layout I have use a black and white 4×6 inch photo where the beautiful subjects are full face looking at the camera and fill the majority of the photo. By doing this I made sure that I have not taken away from the stunning cut file and the focus as remained on the photo.

‘Be a seeker of everyday magic’ … I love that saying. It is always a win when you find that little piece of ephemera that is perfect. I have created this layout using the February 2019 kits and although we are all starting to work with out beautiful March kits I couldn’t help but celebrate with one last layout.
