Yes – Frilly Flower Head Cut File

A few days ago I shared a layout using half of a pre-backed cut file and said I would be back to show you what happened to the other half so here it is! This frilly flower head cut file (pre-cut here) was backed with a patterned vellum over the whole piece and then cut in half and used over the 2 layouts for speedy results. And yes this is a layout about an animal skull Luigi was excited to find in the forest.

I think I actually did this one first. I based it on a Scrap Squad scrap lift (Lockdown Day 2) and changed the doily for the half cut file. I knew I only needed half but backing the whole cut file with one piece is a really quick way to add a pretty layer so I knew I could easily use the other part.

I love using vellum behind a cut file because it can help to tone down a background without losing any of the beautiful design. I distressed some of the edges of the patterned paper layers and then started to add my embellishments.

I used a few pieces from the Truly Grateful die cut pack from Paige Evans to match the papers and finished off with some Bramble Fox Perspextives, some resin flowers and even a button – how retro!?

Have a great weekend!

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
