Baby it's cold outside layout for THECUTSHOPPE

Sunday, January 26, 2020

Hey friends, 

it's Lisa back on the blog today and I'm sharing a super cute layout with a brand new cutfile.
The cutfile I'm using is called FRESH CUT TREES and is available on the THE CUT SHOPPE website. 

In fact the cutfile is made of four rows of trees, all on top of each other. What I did was cut it out two times. One time filling the 12x12 sheet, one time a bit smaller. So I had big and smaller trees. I cut the cutfile apart and used two rows of each. 
First I backed them with pretty patterned papers from the Crate Paper Snowflake collection. Then I positioned them on the paper, always using two rows, that I superposed in a way that the bigger trees would overlap the smaller trees a bit. I also used foam dots to adhere the bigger trees, to create dimension.

Then I used another cutfile for my title, which is called WINTER IS COMING. I cut out the letters from white cardstock and placed them on patterned paper before cutting them out, leaving a colored border. The word 'cold' I backed in the traditional way.

I really love the effect it gives with the different fonts and different colors. 
I matted my photo with five or six scraps of paper and adhered it to the layout, in between the rows of trees. I also created a frame for the layout, using a pretty patterned paper. Then I went through my embellishments and used stars and some animals to pimp my pretty layout.

To finish the layout, I splattered some gold ink in some places.

I really love this tree cutfile because, as I did, you can use it in so many different ways. You can use it as is, or cut the trees as you like and need them on your layout. The phrase cutfile is also very fun. It's meant to be used in a traveler's notebook, but I switched it up and used it on my layout. So, as you can see, you only need a bit of imagination and your options are endless :)

See you soon!
