Mom's Day Cut File Layout by Missy Whidden


Friday, October 13, 2017

When Missy Whidden's latest design team project email showed up in my inbox and I opened it up... I literally gasped out loud! It's just that beautiful! We're still highlighting my cut files for Silhouette on the blog and the layout she made is all kinds of awesome. Check it out:

Hello again, friends! Missy here and I’m sharing a new layout featuring the Scalloped Circles cut file enlarged to fit my entire page. I did a little mixing and matching with Paige’s collections on this. I used a patterned paper from the Fancy Free 12x12 Paper Pad to cut the design. I love the watercolor look of it, and I placed it on some white cardstock so it would stand out. I used some Shimmerz sprays, some Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine, and a few gelatos to create the watercolor effect on the background. I spent lots of time fussy cutting flowers for this page! I pulled out the Turn the Page 12x12 Paper Pad and cut all the gold foiled flowers from one paper. I also cut the hot pink tiny flowers from a sheet in the Fancy Free 12x12 Paper Pad. It’s fun to combine bits and pieces from different collections to make things interesting!
I love how versatile this cut file is. Usually I back all the open spots with patterned papers, but I decided to leave all the spots open. I wanted the background to show through. I added some shiny gold here with some machine stitching. The background gold really shines and it’s a perfect complement to the gorgeous flowers. The fussy cutting was well worth it!

I wanted to cluster some of the flowers on top of the photo so I did that in a few places. I added one of the Turn the Page Pennant Paper Clips to the corner edge here and layered a flower on top of it. I pulled out the Oh My Heart Chipboard Stickers and found a yellow one that matched perfectly. I added in some of the Turn the Page Ribbon through the hole to finish it off.

I did even more mixing and matching for my title. I used some of the Take Me Away Thickers for half of it and the Turn the Page Thickers for the other half. I curved the title to fit the cut file. I also added a smaller subtitle over on the left side. I used the “today” sticker from the Turn the Page Sticker Book, stuck it to some vellum, and fussy cut it out.

This was so much fun to create! I highly recommend checking out Paige’s Silhouette cut files. They are really awesome and give you so many possibilities to create with! Thanks so much for stopping by!
