Fast Layout > Using a Background Cut File

Happy Ground Hogs’ Dag!!  Jody here today.  Although I don’t take much stock in a ground hog determining whether or not I continue to freeze my butt off, it’s still a cute yearly tradition here in the U.S!!  

Today, I’m sharing a layout I literally put together in 20 minutes!!  We all need layouts like these for busy, busy times!  I shared a couple sneaks of this on the SMS Instagram a few weeks ago and today I’m excited to share it with you all. I started with a FREE cut file (found on the Free Cut Files page here) cut out on American Crafts white cardstock and paper from Pink Paislee/Paige Evans, Take Me Away.  I chose the Flurries Background cut file I designed and simply layered it over my Pink Paislee paper.  I added a Chantilly Lacy 8 inch doily, some Pretty Little Studio Hello Heather papers and my photo, then adhered that onto my background.  I also added some craft foam under my photo to pop it up a little.  

One other tidbit I’d like to share is my struggle to actually use cut files!  Crazy right?!  My scrap studio is no longer in the room, or even the same floor as my computer which causes a problem obviously.  So, to solve this dilemma I have been cutting files while I’m doing other things at my computer like checking email, working on taxes (UGH help me now LOL), etc.  It’s pretty easy to get my cut file set up cut, and then let it run while I’m working on other tasks.  I just wanted to share that with you all since I’m sure I’m not the only one that faces challenges like this.  So now, I have several different cut file background and others ready to go whenever I want to sneak away for 10 minutes to create in my space!!

I simply added my title, which are cardboard Thickers from American Crafts (maybe from Dear Lizzy or Amy Tan??) and Foam Thickers from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection.  Finally I sprinkled some Amore sequins in a few areas.  I called it good in 20 minutes you guys!!

#BEATIES KEEPIN IT REAL

Hello everyone and welcome!  Felicia here with a very funny photo of two lovelies in my life and I have to say they keep me laughing all the time. I had asked them to act normal before snapping this photo and this is what they did, Lol!  Too funny!  Having my two grandchildren over is a blessing and I enjoy it every time they come visit.

So I changed my photo to black and white in order to use my favorite embellishments, which are the new sequins from the Speigelmom Scraps Shop called Amore. Take a look!

Lol!  I just can’t get over this photo!  Here is a close up of the sequins.

The papers and ephemera are from the Paige Evans Take Me Away collection and I love how the Amore sequins match the collection permanently.

I had to use that chipboard bow to fill in the gap at the top of the layout.

For my layout today, I wanted to steer away from plain white American Crafts cardstock or a patterned paper.  I really wanted to use the brand spankin’ new Paige Evans Take Me Away collection with Pink Paislee so I decided to compliment it with starting with lavender American Crafts cardstock from my stash. 
@pinkpaislee @paigeevans @americancrafts @amytangerine @shimmerzpaintz @spiegelmomscraps @jodyspiegehoff, #spiegelmomscraps #shimmerzpaints #sequins #felt #diecuts #stitching #handstitching #paigeevans #takemeaway #pinkpasileeI added some gorgeous Shimmerz Dazzlerz in Licorice using an older Amy Tangerine stencil and just love the contrast!!  I added a thin layer so it would dry faster.  Then I had the idea to use my Kaisercraft metal dies as a stitching template.  I positioned my metal heart die around my layout in three spots and used my paper poker to poke the holes for my hand stitching.  It really didn’t take that long with stitch the hearts as they weren’t very big and I only used white embroidery thread.  I added the two shades of grey Heart Felties in a few areas around my layout, especially nearby and touching the stitched hearts.  I love to have similar embellishments touch and overlap.  I feel it’s very interesting in a layout.


Another one my favorite things to do so that I don’t waste any Shimmerz products is use the stencil as a stamp after I’ve used it as a stencil.  Hang in there and follow what I’m sayin’!!  After I used my Amy Tangerine triangle stencil to create the black triangles shown above, there is still some Dazzlerz leftover on my stencil, right?  So, instead of just wiping it off, I turned the stencil over and stamp that leftover Dazzlerz down right onto the bottom right corner of my layout.  It leaves a pretty cool effect!!

I’m so grateful you stopped by today!!  I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout, featuring some fabulous Heart Felties!!  Be sure to leave a comment on all the blogs today and throughout the weekend! There’s another chance everyday this weekend to win another $10 shop credit!!  

Now, you’re on to the amazing Missy Whidden!!  Enjoy her beautiful work my friends!
