Hi there!
Nathalie with you today with a focus highlight on one of the Subscriber-only cut files.   Each month, our subscribers receive a collection of perks -cut files, cut apart elements, extra PL cards-, and today i want to share a few ideas on how to use the PICTURE PERFECT cut file, and this month's AT MY TABLE Life Crafted kit and the Mini Halloween Kit.

Let's get started with a Life Crafted layout:

This month's AT MY TABLE kit is gorgeous, versatile and completely perfect for this story of my daughter's last first day of school picture (she is graduating HS this year).

I pulled the Life Crafted Screen  of the Picture Perfect cut file to create the title page for this layout.  I simply cut the screen to fit the page, and backed it with one of the Digital TN papers (the contrast of yellow and blue/teal is a fave of mine) then created a cluster on the middle of the page using elements from the kit.  I really love the floral paper, and had fun fussy cutting the images, and then there is the mini alpha stickers...

For the other side of my layout, i chose to create a cluster of papers and ephemera at the top corner of the layout.   I tried to repeat the same elements as in the title page,  so that the two sides are cohesive and then just added my lines of journal and a few more stamped sentiments from the TN stamp set.  Just love how this turned out.

Let's now check a second option using the PICTURE PERFECT cut file and the mini Halloween kit:

 The mini Halloween kit features the new Crate Paper - Hey Pumpkin collection, and i couldn't resist creating  a page from one of our old Halloween memories.

This time, i am using the second format of the cut file and cut it from white cardstock.  I used some of the papers from the kit to back a few of the empty spaces of the cut file  - mixing solid cardstock, with patterned paper and some icons-  and attached it to the background using some foam adhesive.

A bit of black paint (Pinkfresh Studio watercolor available in the CTK shop) on the background makes all the details of the cut stand out, as well as all the clusters of embellishments around the page.  To finish this page, i added a few stamped sentiments inside the empty film strip spots using the TN stamp set and gold ink.

The following video will show you how this all came together:

I hope this gives you a few ideas on how to work the many subscriber perks on your documenting.   Remember to check all the kits, tools and digital files in the CTK shop, and consider subscribing ( if you are not a subscriber already)so you can have access to all the CTK exclusives. 

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions on how this came together.  I cannot wait to see what you create with this month's kits!!
