It’s Katarina here with you again and today I’m bringing some cut file inspiration. There’s also a process video at the end of my post if anyone is interested to watch. My assignment today was to use the negative part of my cut file to create a dimensional layout. Let’s have a look at how I did. My layout features the super beautiful December Kits.
I used the Oakie Bear Blue Shimmerz from the December Color Kit
to make a subtle background behind my cut file – the Geo Snowflake
designed by Kim Watson. I used the actual cut file as a guide to place all my negative pieces. I foam mounted all the grey ones to achieve a lot of dimension and to make the snowflake shape really stand out. The ones cut from the yellow cardstock lay flat on my background.
I used enamel dots from the December Main Kit
for the empty centers of my cut file. I created my title using the black alphabet from the Embellishment Kit
and placed in the middle of my layout.
On the left side I created a little scene with houses fussy cut out of a patterned paper and a super cute chipboard snowman resembling the one on my photo.
I placed my photo on the right side, used one of the tags from the Journaling Bits (included in the Main Kit
) that I machine stitched around to add a little interest. I continued embellishing my photo with floral die cuts, puffy and chipboard stickers and one of the cute little bows.
To finish off my layout I cut and distressed the edges of my background paper and used the black and white patterned paper and the Powder Blue cardstock to give my page a frame. I machine stitched around it for a little added texture.
And this is my finished layout. Hope it gave you some inspiration today. I am also adding a process video for anyone who’s interested to watch me create this fun layout.
Thank you very much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
