Hello again scrappy friends,
I have been crushing hard on this background file, and was lucky enough to get my hands on it when I spent some time with Gwen at a recent retreat. I love how fun this file is and the contrast between the soft and hard lines.
I wanted to emphasise the contrast on this page, so went with backing the file with a black wood grain paper. I loved the way my team mate Rachel Dutko did this on a recent page so totally borrowed her idea.
I backed some of the speech bubbles with patterned paper, and some with photos. I filled all the love hearts with the same red paper, and left the ‘Hello’ bubbles open.
I placed foam tape behind all the bubbles – this was quite tricky as the lines on this Custom Cut File are very thin, but it was so worth it for the shadow effect it creates.
At this point there was a lot colour and contrast going on, so I didn’t feel the need to embellish too heavily. I added some puffy stickers tone on tone around some of the speech bubbles and on others I added some chipboard. I love the chipboard on the green element, as it is another speech bubble which plays in with the cut file.
To finish the page off, I added some white paint splatters which I feel ties the Cut File to the background a little bit more.
I love this page, and I think my favourite part is how having the photos inside the speech bubbles really highlights them.
Gwen has also shared a layout using this Cut File over on her blog this week… make sure you check that one out too!
Thanks for stopping by to check my layout out today!

Hello again scrappy friends,
I’m really not quite sure whats happened to me, but I think I may have caught the pretty bug from Gwen herself! But you know what, I’m totally happy about it! This Custom Cut File was just so fun and pretty, and I had some of the new Crate Paper Willow Lane on my desk – match made in heaven!
I backed each of the flowers with patterned paper, backing each style of flower in the same paper, and the leaves in a pretty green paper. I then added foam tape behind the flowers and stems so that the Custom Cut File pops off the page.
I positioned the Custom Cut File above a strip of green patterned paper that I have added to the background paper, as this grounds the Cut File, and stops it from looking like its floating in space.
I nestled the photo in front of some of the longer flower stems, so as to not lose too much of the colour and impact from the backed flowers, and then built the title and the embellishments around this.
I think the best thing about how this layout came together is the contrast between the Custom Cut File and the background paper (which is from Cocoa Vanilla). I love the texture in the background, with the contrast of the crisp white Custom Cut File. It just makes it sing!
Thanks for stopping by and checking this out today!

Hey Hey scrappy friends,
Today I’m back to share a layout with you featuring another rad custom cut file from Created by Gwen’s Cut to You range. We are using Wild Geometric leaves, and we are playing along with the Scrap The Boys “Stay Wild’ Challenge for the month of August.
The Wild Geometric Custom Cut file comes with 2 separate group of leaves, and a group of 3 joined together.
For this layout, I separated the group of three leaves and then backed the more detailed leaves with some patterned paper. I then added some of the open leaves over the top to add more dimension.
The open leaves that were then left spare, I cut into single leaves, and tucked around the page, popping up with foam tape for extra dimension.
I even added these to a group of the leaves to spread this further across the page.
This layout was a great stash buster, because, seriously where else was I going to include a zebra on my page, and it worked perfectly with the zebra print Charm’s Creation. I do love that the green in the leaves really pops against the rest of the B&W on the page.
