Summer Cut File 14 of 24: Bees with Stitching Background

Thursday, July 21, 2022

The 14th of the 24 Days of Summer Cut Files was just sent out and here are 3 layouts made with today's Bees with Stitching Background Cut File!

Design Team Member Lisa Fonseca created this oh-so-cute layout! She says, "Hi friends, I hope you are enjoying the beginning of summer and that you're ready to scrap some fave summer photos! For this layout I used Paige's Bees with Stitching Background Cut File. I stitched the trails with all the colors of thread from the Splendid Cross Stitch Kit. I backed the bee wings with vellum and their bodies with different colors of patterned paper from the collection. To finish I splattered watercolors, added some stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book, a Heart Paper Clip, and Thickers mixed with an Epoxy Sticker for the title."

Design Team Member Valerie Bisson created this super fun layout! She says, "I had the perfect photos to go with the Bees with Stitching Background Cut File from a Winnie the Pooh Festival. I started with a piece of white cardstock and added a honeycomb stencil and gold paint splatters. Then I had my Cricut draw out the cut file so I would know exactly where all the bees should get placed. I did this in a black pen because I wanted some of the drawing to show but you could also do this with a pencil. Next my machine created the stitching holes and I did a running stitch with black thread. I used Paper 5 to cut out the bees, black cardstock centers, and vellum wings. I only glued down the middle of the bees to my background so that the wings could lift off the page. Next I matted the layout with Paper 1 and Paper 18 then machine stitched all the layers together. I added my photos and a title using Thickers. I felt the page needed minimal embellishing because the cut file does a nice job of that already so I only added a few pieces from the 8-Page Sticker BookChipboard StickersSequins, a few stamped hearts using the Acrylic Stamps, and the date with the Roller Stamp. That completes my layout and I hope you have a wonderful day!"

Design Team Member Audrey Mutschall created this sweet layout! She says, "When I saw this Bees with Stitching Background Cut File. I knew I wanted to combine it with Paige’s Bee Happy Cut FileI started by ungrouping the bees from the stitching background and setting the bees aside to use later. I chose a yellow gingham patterned paper for the background and had my Silhouette cut the stitching holes. Next, I cut out the Bee Happy Cut File (and three of the extra bees that I’d set aside) from white cardstock. I backed the title using a bee patterned paper from my stash, adhering it behind the cut file with foam adhesive to add extra dimension. I backed the bees with dark gray cardstock, yellow patterned paper from the Oh My Heart Digital Collection, and vellum for the wings. I stitched the background using variegated blue/turquoise embroidery floss (DMC  4030) to match the color of the title. I arranged the Bee Happy title and extra bees on the background, as well as my photo. I embellished with some Floral Die Cuts, flowers fussy cut from the Floral Transparency, and a subtitle using Thickers. Lastly, I added some sequins and gold hearts for a little extra sparkle."
