Cut files – Celebrate You by Michelle Stokes

Hello Scrappy friends its Michelle back here today with a new layout share. I was given the task of creating with cut files for this project which was very exciting as I love using cut files as an added design element on a layout. For this share I chose the Flowers design that was part of the March 2020 Subscribers Release. I also used up more of the sweet February 2020 kits for this layout.

To begin my creating process I resized the Flower design in Silhouette studio to stretch diagonally across a 12×12 layout, then cut it out on white cardstock. I love the soft feel white on white gives to a layout.




I chose 2 complimenting pattern papers to use to back the flowers. I did this by using a quick dry adhesive and sharp tiny blade scissors to fussy cut around the edges. I adhered the entire cut file piece to the backing cardstock using foam tape for dimension.

I added the photo stack to the upper left of the cut file design. Here I’ve layered a card from the Journaling bits pack (Embellishment Kit) a piece of pattern paper (Happy Thoughts PFS) and a strip of the hearts from Paper #24 (both within the Main Kit). I had previously dissected the butterfly from the remaining cut file so it wasn’t covered up and added it to the left of photo.

I grouped together little floral clusters between the florals on the cut file using pieces from the Floral ephemera pack in the Embellishment Kit and some fussy cut florals from Paper #12 (Main Kit)

I added some extra dimension to the centre of the large flowers on the cut file by using the NUVO drops in the Main Kit. These are also ‘splattered’ randomly around the cut file along with some gold colour shine.
