Together – Bed of Roses Cut File

Welcome to a new blog post crafty friends! I’m kicking off this week with a layout using the Bed of Roses cut file (pre-cut here).

This was created during one of my #the100dayproject sessions (which have recently fallen by the way side a bit). I had a stack of photos from a dog walk, the Truly Grateful collection by Paige Evans, and my blunder box of cut files gone wrong. I headed over to the Scrap Squad Facebook group to see what scrap lifts peaked my interest.

I came across their challenge for their Lockdown Day 10, which originally came from Stuck? Sketches by Mandy Melville and it was perfect for one of my photos from the pile. The original had a muted patterned paper background that I replaced with one of my mis-cut files and I love the effect that the white on white gives.

Once the main elements were in place, I was able to follow the sketch to place a few die-cuts and embellishments around the page with some popped up on foam for dimension and texture. I even managed to use some of my resin flowers and I think the finish things off perfectly.

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
