Cut files and Hand Stitching!

Happy Saturday!

What are your plans for the weekend? Hopefully, you get to do something crafty, I’m here to share this beautiful layout I created using the Pink Paislee Whimsical Collection By Paige Evans. This collection is everything in the color palette!

Cut files are a fun way to Embellish your Page. I know some of us don’t have a cutting machine but that should not stop you from using a cut file. You Can find cut files that already cut for you- ready for you to use, with this collection Paige Evans has a beautiful 12 by 12 of flowers and butterflies – LINK TO THE- cutfile.

So, let’s get started!

First, I started by cutting the cut file with my Silhouette Cameo on a white 110 lb card stock and I was flipping through the 12 by 12 Paper pad to find the best paper to back up the file.

So, I backed up the little pumpkins with paper 22. A list of the items I used is below. With paper 22, you can see all the little dots through the pumpkins.

Then, I splattered color shines by Heidi Swapp on the cut file. I started looking for papers to add behind my photo, I like to add papers, tissue or even another cut file can be used.

All the embellishments are on different levels I elevated my photo by adding foam sheet behind it and some of the stickers, chipboards have sticker foam for dimension.


PS. Do you see that my N is missing but I found it . Haha 😆! I realized it after I took the pictures and everything was put away.

The title of the page is ENJOY THE HAPPY LIFE PUMPKIN 🎃

To add the finishing touches to the page, I added little Cross stitching to the layout.

What your favorite embellishments to add to a layout?
