Hey CVS friends, today I have my first share using the stunning new collection HAPPINESS and exclusive CVS cut files created by CUT to YOU. I have a Silhouette Cameo as I refer to functions here specifically to the Silhouette not other cutting machines.
You can download these FREE cut files in the Cocoa Vanilla Studio store HERE
Firstly I cut white cardstock at 10×10 inches. I matted this onto the stunning aqua paper to provide a contrast. I used the larger roses cut file and the smaller rose. The fab thing about cut files if you want to change them up you can, I flipped one of them horizontally (if you go to the object tab and hover over mirror, you can flip any cut file). I used the release compound path and dragged out the leaves and then cut in a lighter aqua and then paper backed the roses. I used a small floral print so there would be various colours showing. I added some machine stitching to the leaves to add definition, also adding a stitched border around the white cardstock. I then attached the cut files to my layout layout using foam tape on the outer one to create a 3D effect.
I love the clear stickers so much and the paint smudges are a fab way to add a water colour background to your page. I next added my photo matted on several of the polaroid frames paper, again adding machine stitching.
To create my title which is also one of the exclusive cut files, I went to the panel tab in Silhouette and then used the off set function, this allows you to create a ‘shadow’ behind your title. I cut my title in white and then chose the multi coloured paper in the collection to cut the off set ‘shadow’, I think it really gives a title a wow factor. Before attaching to my layout I added another paint effect clear sticker to sit under my title.
To finish off I add some die cut butterflies and some word stickers from the accessory sticker sheet. And there you have it, this collection really is happiness captured.
Thank you for stopping by and see you again soon. If you have any questions or feedback please feel free to add in comments and I will respond.
