Hello everyone and welcome to a new blog post on Cutfile Tuesday.

I always find the weekly challenges and tasks very exciting, and this week, at least for me, the challenge was big too.

The task was to use a cut file and not just put paper behind it, but to use a different technique. For example, you can roll the paper, design the background with ephameras, or maybe with lots of alphabet stickers. There are certainly so many possibilities.

I thought about using the paper strips from the patterned papers of the lovely November Kit because they are really too good to throw away.

Many years ago I bought Fringe scissors and actually use them now and then. Of course, you can also achieve the effect with normal scissors, it just takes a little longer.

I cut out the cutfile on a white cardstock with the cameo.
Cut the strips of paper into fringes step by step with scissors and then glue them strip by strip behind the cutfile. I then glued the snowflake onto a white cardstock using adhesive spacer pads. My layout is 9×12 inches.

I chose a few from the Ehpamera pack with the stars and used them as backgrounds.
With the black alphabet stickers from the kit, I glued the title in a circular shape.

Last but not least, I used the remaining strips as a frame for the layout. I had the feeling the layout needed a frame and why not design it with the frayed stripes?
To do this, I shortened the cardstock by 0.5 inches on each side.

I hope I was able to give a little inspiration with the layout and encourage people to follow suit.
Stay safe and see you soon. Sonja
