Nathalie with you today with a couple layouts all about using some of those beautiful screen cut files and this month's kits. By now all your kits are on the way and arriving at your doors, so what better time to start looking at how to use those exclusive cut files in your projects.
For these pages, i chose to work with the Screen cut files to give you a few ideas when creating layouts in your Life Crafted album. For the first one, i am using the Ampersand Love cut file and a mix of the Add on and Chasing Rainbows kits.
I used the cut file to create my title page on this layout. First the cut file was sized to fit a Life Crafted insert, and then decided to just back the ampersand of the cut out with a paper from the Just Lovely collection, from Pinkfresh Studio, included in the Add-on kit, then glued the screen outline to a piece of cardstock.
All the floral embellishments of the layout were fussy cut from the Pinkfresh Studio papers -included in the Add-on kit- and then used to create clusters around the pictures and title. A few embellishments from the Chasing Rainbows kit complete this page. Love how easy this came together using the cut file as a page in the album, but how about using it in a different way.
For this page, my choice was to break apart the Screen cut out so that i can create layers and pieces for my layout.
First, i created a background by cutting one of the add-on kit's papers to fit a Life Crafted insert. This time, i chose to cut the screen and create a layer behind the picture. All the embellishments - a mix of pieces from both kits- were then added around the picture. Finally a title was added using one of the subscriber cutfiles, the Chasing Rainbows stamp set and Typewriter Alpha Stamp.
For the other side of this page, i reached for Insert #2 and create a 3x4 card by gluing the left over piece of the cut out to a piece of vellum. The journal lines were then added to one of the Subscriber exclusive 3x4 bonus cards, and then this layout was finished with puffy stickers and enamel dots from the Add-on kit, and cut apart elements.
The following video will show you how it all came together:
I hope these have inspired you to use your exclusive cut files to create pages in your Life Crafted Album. Be sure to stop by the CTK shop to check the kits -there are so many perks as a subscriber-. If you have questions on how these came together, please do not hesitate to contact me.
