Using a Background Cut File | Erica Thompson

Did you know as a subscriber you get access to  exclusive cut files each month? Each month new cut files are added that coordinate with the kits! The cut  files are a great way to help stretch out your kit and they can be used in so many ways! If you are not a subscriber you can still get access to some of the great files! All you need to do is register on the Hip Kit Club website! Trust me you will want all the cut files!  Today I want to share how you can get a lot of color and pattern on a layout using a background cut file.

I started by cutting out the Leaf Rows Background cut file that is one of the October 2019 cut files available on the Hip Kit Club website. I cut it out on the Bazzill Avalanche cardstock that came in the October Cardstock Kit. 


I pulled some of the pattern papers from the main October kit and backed the cut file. I love that I can take small amounts of the patter paper and it makes such a big impact on the page.  I pulled out a second piece of Bazzill Avalanche cardstock from the cardstock kit and added some splatters using the Color Kit and some mist from my stash. Once this was dry I added foam adhesive to the back of my cut file and stuck it down to the background.

My photo is from a recent scrapbook event I attended and we met this fabulous group of ladies! We had the best time with them and we can’t wait till next year! I printed the photo in black and white since there was so much color going on in the photo. I popped my photo up with some fun foam and stuck it down to the layout. I pulled out all my October embellishments and began to add die cuts, chipboard and puffy stickers around my photo. The exclusives this month were adorable! One of the  many reason you should  subscribe is so you do not miss out on all the goodness! Here is a look at my completed layout. I love that I have so many different colors and patterns going on using the cut file!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Don’t forget to head on over to the Hip Kit Club website and get registered to get access to so many wonderful cut files!
