Using Multiple Cut Files | Elsie Robinson

Hey HKC friends, it’s Elsie back again with a 12×12 layout using the May 2019 kits. Today I’m here to inspire you to use multiple cut files on your projects. Hip Kit have so many subscriber exclusive cut files (as well as freebies ones) on offer, you’ll be sure to find lots to create with! You can find them all here.

For my project today I combined the rolled flower cut files (from April 2019) and the daisy wreath set (from May 2019) to create my own floral embellishments!

I firstly cut the flowers from a number of patterned papers and some cardstock (from the May 2019 Main Kit and CardstockĀ Kit) in a variety of sizes. I then rolled them up and adhered them with some hot glue. I can’t believe how simple these were to put together, because they look so dramatic and detailed once assembled!

Next I cut the leaves (from the Daisy wreath cut file set) from white cardstock. Since there is no green cardstock/patterned paper in the kits, I decided to create my own using the yellow and blue Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical shakers that are in the May 2019 Colour Kit!

I simply mixed the powders together with some water and dipped the leaves in that mixture to get some lovely and vibrant green watercolour leaves.

To create my background I sprinkled the ‘Afternoon Delight Denim’ Magical Shaker on some white cardstock and spritzed with water to create a very dramatic night sky. I also splattered some white paint and I used the Crate Paper All Heart stamp set (from the Pocket Life Kit) to white heat emboss some stars all over the background.

To finish off the page, I created a large crescent moon (from white cardstock) and clustered my photo and the rolled flowers around it, which created a focal point. I embellished the page with some of the HKC exclusive ephemera (in the Main Kit) as well as chipboard, puffy and cardstock stickers from the All Heart collection.
