Boy Cut File 25 of 30: Gameboy

Monday, April 25, 2022

The 25th of the 30 Days of Boy Cut Files went out to those who purchased them and here are three layouts created with today's Gameboy Cut File!

For my page today featuring the Gameboy Cut File I cut it from white cardstock and then backed it with solid colors of cardstock. On a gray cardstock background, I painted black stripes and splashed white acrylic paint and black watercolors from the Vintage Pastels set on top. I added machine stitching details, strips of star washi tape, and hand drawn stars made with a white pen all across the background. Then I added the backed cut file at a slight angle with foam squares and a strip of three photos of Fox playing his Switch at an opposite angle on the left side. I typed, printed, trimmed, and glued journaling strips inside the Gameboy to finish!

Design Team Member Lisa Fonseca created this nostalgic layout! She says, "How cool is the Gameboy Cut File? My boyfriend had to play model for this layout because I needed a photo with him playing Gameboy, haha! I used the Bungalow Lane collection to embellish. I think this collection is perfect to create boyish layouts because it has a lot of blues, greens, reds, and yellows. I backed the cut file using gray cardstock and I created a lot of Tetris pieces for which I mainly used the patterned paper with all the different squares - Paper 20. I created a background using watercolors and then I attached the cut file and photo, embellishing with the little Tetris pieces."

Design Team Member Audrey Mutschall created this ultra cute layout! She says, "For this page I made the Gameboy Cut File slightly smaller, cut it out of white cardstock, and then made an offset from black cardstock. I backed the cut file with a variety of patterned papers from the Color Study collection by Vicki Boutin and used the star patterned paper for my background. I wanted to make speech bubbles with phrases from video games, so I used Paige’s Speech Bubble Background Cut File to do this. I typed phrases in a variety of fonts and printed them onto a sheet of white cardstock, then used the speech bubbles from the cut file to trace around the phrases and cut them out. I also added black offsets behind the speech bubbles to give them more dimension. After arranging the cut file and speech bubbles onto the background, I added a title, journaling, cardstock stickers, and chipboard stickers as embellishments. This was a really fun layout to put together and I hope it inspires you!"
