Claire Murphy – You Rock My World

Hi friends, it’s Claire here on the last day of the month – can you believe it is going to be March tomorrow already?

I just love anything travel themed being someone that enjoys her holidays.
So of course I wanted to use the globe cut file.

Initially I was going to do a travel themed layout but decided to change it up and make a layout using pinks and yellows and teals and scrap a photo about me and my hubby. The title itself was easy – You Rock My World. The cut file gave me the title and it saved me having to think of a title myself!!
So I used a whole load of scraps from my favourite Dream Big from Simple Stories to back the cut file.

I used some foam behind the cut file to pop it up a bit on the background paper which helps to bring dimension and shadows behind the cut file. I then used some scraps again to layer behind my photo and created 3 simple clusters from ephemera, stickers and and even a little fussy cutting.

The layout took me about an hour in total but I’m sure you’ll all agree that the time is worth spent on getting a finished result on your cut file. You can see the layout come together here.

See you next month for some more inspiration!!

Due to ongoing health and personal issues, I’m afraid I am closing the shop for 6 months.  I very much hope to be back but I will only be able to judge this once I have gone through the next few months.  All outstanding orders will go out next week (commencing 15th June).  I will be keeping the blog side of the website going and I may pop up on social media sometimes but I may have to take a fair bit of time out while I process everything and work through treatments etc.  I know that particularly my pre-cut customers will be disappointed and I am so sorry to let people down but sometimes being strong involves having to give something up.  It’s not been an easy decision I can tell you.  Thank you so much to everyone that has supported me in the last 4 years, in particular my wonderful design team.  Seeing my designs on layouts capturing people’s precious memories is something I will always treasure.  Best wishes xx
