Scrapbook Layout - Sun Sand Fun -
I have been hard at work with the new cut file, Beach Bound from Scrapbook Nerd. This cut file designed by the Cut Shoppe is available for free at the store (just follow this link), and it is perfect for documenting all those summer memories at the beach. So hop to the store and get your free copy.
For this layout, I combined the cut file and the lovely Simple Stories' Sunshine and Happiness collection. Here is a small video on how the layout was created (i prefer not to do a voice over, since after 25 years of speaking both Spanish and English at home, the accents are still present on both languages), enjoy:
To start, i used an exacto knife to cut around the edges of the flowers (being careful not to detach them from the page), and used fussy cut flowers from other paper in the collection, to create a large floral corner in the layout.
|The dimension on the cut-outs creates great interest in the page.|
I used the cut file to create the title for the piece. Once cut, i used a light coat of shimmer watercolor and then attached them to the mat. I continued to pierced the edges of the words, and handstitched the title using matching embroidery thread.
I documented some of the pictures of my daughter's trip to LA a few years ago. It was her first time seeing the Pacific Ocean. I layered the pictures with some of the 3x4in cards in the collection and added some interest with some ephemera. To create the "sun clip", i used the cutfile, and just color the cut-out with watercolor.

To finished the layout, I added some enamel dots, small pieces of ephemera, and my journal lines. Here is the final layout:
I really love this cut file, and how it worked in this layout.
As always let me know if you have any questions about the layout. Don't forget to visit the Scrapbook Nerd Store to get the cut file.. It's free!!.
