Hey everyone, Raquel here today with my latest layout using the new Colour me Happy collection. For this post today I decided to create a video tutorial and process video for you all. The tutorial is going to demonstrate to you how you can use the cut files, a laser printer and a minc machine to create your own foiled die cut pieces.

Here is the layout I created: Shine Bright


To begin the layout I gathered the beautiful Colour me Happy supplies and chose the Minc foil colours that I wanted to use. I spent some time on the computer, which you will see in the video, modifying and manipulating the cut files I wanted onto an A4 page ready to print straight out onto my laser printer.


Once I had my cut files printed I was able to cut pieces of the two foils I chose; the gold, and the pink, to add to my cut files.


I layered my 4×6″ portrait black and white photo on the Paisley Patch patterned paper from the collection. I then added a white doily from my stash on top of one of the gold doilies from the collection, just to soften it a little. That whole mat was adhered to the page with foam.


I created the page in a circular design however the circle was somewhat subtle due to the fact that I used my sewing machine to stitch around it and did this with white stitching. I sewed around the edge of the circle a few times to add further detail. On the embellishment group below I added one of the leaves, then a couple of chevron pieces from the snip its sheet, an enamel dot and that word strip also from the snip its sheet.


The cluster below was made up of similar parts to the previous cluster, the snip its, enamel dots and foiled leaves. The You & Me was punched with a 1″ circle and adhered with a foam dot to the page.


I hope you have enjoyed this post today, don’t forget to check out the tutorial and process video by clicking the image below to see how I used, printed and foiled the cut files to then create this page.
