Boy Cut File 14 of 30: Keys

Thursday, April 14, 2022

The 14th of the 30 Days of Boy Cut Files went out to those who purchased them and here are two layouts created with today's Keys Cut File!

My page today features an oldie but goodie collection: Pick-Me-Up! I backed a white cardstock Keys Cut File with patterned papers and then made an offset layer from black cardstock. On a subtle patterned paper, I placed an enlarged Sunburst Rays Background cut from scratch cardstock on top, splattered white acrylic paintPastel Dreams and Tropicals watercolors over the sunburst, removed the sunburst, and then machine stitched between all the rays for tons of texture and interest. I added the Keys to the epicenter and then embellished with some fussy cut speech bubbles, buttons, and a variety of stickers!

Design Team Member Audrey Mutschall created this awesome layout! She says, "This page was inspired by my husband’s affection for his vintage green Oldsmobile (a sentimental attachment I never fully understood lol!) The car was entirely green - from the carpet and floor mats to the dashboard, upholstery, and ceiling; therefore, I made a monochromatic green layout to match! I used a pre-made Vicki Boutin background with splashes of green paint, as well as bits and pieces of other green patterned paper from my stash. I resized the Keys Cut File to fit on the bottom right corner of my layout and cut it out twice from white cardstock. I painted one of the cut files gray and chose not to back it. The other set I backed with green patterned papers from Color Study by Vicki Boutin, also leaving parts of the cut file unbacked. I layered the two cut files on top of one another so that the gray keys show underneath the backed set. My embellishments include ephemera, Thickers, a chipboard sticker, and cardstock stickers all from the Color Study collection. I also added a title using the font Boldy Vintage to add to the retro feel of the layout!"
