Cut Mania Cut files

I used 2 more cut files from my new favorite cut file Etsy store Cut Mania  

I used the Be...daring, curious, Heather used Green, black and Grey wood grain in her LO (which can be seen in the listing link above). I love it so much I scrap lifted it.  I stuck with pink, grey and black with hits of gold for mine. Colors were taken from the picture of my youngest daughter, She is usually wearing pink so seem to have a lot of pink papers to pull from.

 I absolutely love this cut file, I knew what picture and what story I wanted to tell  as soon as I seen it.

I tucked my journaling behind the photo cluster and added pink, gold, black layers. I sprinkled HS black and gold color shine in the background. 

For the 2nd LO today I used the Star Trail cut file. I used the negative for this LO. I saved the pieces and glued them to white page using the cutout as a stencil to place them perfectly before assembling this LO. So two LOs from one cut file not a bad deal at all.  I just need to create that LO.


I used a red white and blue theme as it fit my topic. I wanted to celebrate my oldest daughter and her decision to be an election official on our super Tuesday here in Michigan. I used TH distress inks for the red and blue but for the white parts I glued crinkled tissue paper to the backside.

Megan was so proud that she saved the election results for the precinct  she worked at. She told the other helpers that her mom scrapbooks and will love to have it.  I had to laugh because when she told me this, my mind was already figuring out how I would use it on this LO. It was so long that I had to tuck it away. I made a flap under the picture and used her badge at the bottom of the flap

I used my typewriter and cut into strips in the top left corner.

I mind is working trying to figure out how I am going to use the second LO background I made with this cut file.

Thanks for looking.

  1. these are awesome - I REALLY, really love the first. Love the second too and how clever to use the cutfile to place the stars onto another page.
