SUMMER | Hip Kit Club | Using Cut Files

Thursday 26 August 2021

Hi everyone! Here is a new layout using the July kits and an exclusive cut file! I’ve used the Tropical Leaves cut file which you can find on the website under the July Downloads tab.

I cut the leaves quite small, multiple times on white card. My plan was to use these as additional ephemera, tucked into places around my layout.

I used the beautiful yellow paper from the July kit. It reminds me of tie-dying. I love yellow so wanted to use this as my background but the whole sheet was slightly too busy and needed an area of white space to balance it more. I therefore tore off a strip from the bottom of the paper and then mounted it onto a white background.

I mounted my photo onto a Pocket Life card and added the photo to the left side of the layout over the tear. I added some of the watercolour acetate stickers behind my photo to give the effect of mixed media – these stickers really do make mixed media very easy!

I used a large chipboard title from the June kit – I had this one leftover and it was perfect for this layout. I raised it on foam pads to give it extra dimension and stuck it right across the torn edge and my photo.

I embellished the layout with circle frames, chipboard circles and lots of little pieces of ephemera. I tucked in the white cut file Tropical Leaves to several places, I really love the layered effect they bring to the page.

I finished off with a few splatters of white paint.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
