Hey there, Laura here, sharing a layout with a different take on the Twisted Square cut file (pre-cut here, download here). In my video (which you can see here) I show you how I edited the cut file, deleting three quarters of the design and enlarging the remainder to make three large sections of twisted squares.
It’s so simple to manipulate cut files I really would encourage you to have a play. Of course if you don’t have a machine of your own you can get the original cut file here (and maybe a sweet word in the boss’s shell-like and she’ll cut you one of these!)
I’ve paired the squares with another fab cut file from the store called Yum Yum. (You can download it here and get it pre-cut here.) This perfectly sums up how I feel about giant bourbon biscuits! I backed both files with patterned papers in a cream/white/kraft/gold colour scheme. I’ll be honest with you, I have surprised myself – I didn’t think I liked cream. Well, I had to dig really deep in my stash to come up with a few pieces of darker cream to contrast with the white that I cut the files on.
In between the white and the true cream is the, well, ‘creamy white’ that is Jen Hadfield’s foiled paper. It is beautiful and I bought it regardless of the fact it wasn’t on a white background. Turns out that was a good move!
The kraft paper is by StickerKitten and from their Bee Garden range. It ties up nicely with the t shirt I am wearing in the photo. It’s a tenuous link but I think bees are a neutral anyway, they go with everything. I embellished with a few wooden bees again from StickerKitten. I’m still bashing away at the Heidi Swapp gold glitter alphas I used in my last PMP layout.
After this layout I only have a couple of O’s left in terms of vowels. I will run the remainder through an anagram checker online to see if there are any titles that might work for me.
That’s all from me this month, see you next month! Laura
