Autumn Cut File 14 of 20: Sunflower Vase

Monday, November 14, 2022

The 14th of the 20 Days of Autumn Cut Files is a Sunflower Vase and was just emailed out and the file uploaded to the secret folder!

Here are 2 layouts made with today's Sunflower Vase from the 20 Days of Autumn Cut Files:
Design Team Member Audrey Mutschall created this eye-catching layout! She says, "I paired the Sunflower Vase with Paige’s new Garden Shoppe collection which is absolutely perfect for fall-themed layouts and projects! I started by cutting the Sunflower Vase from white cardstock and then backing the sunflowers with the yellow sections from Paper 9 - this allowed me to get different colors of yellow into the petals without having to individually cut out each petal separately. I used Paper 6 for the stems and a green polka dot paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad for the leaves. The vase is backed with blue floral Paper 1 and a blue patterned paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. With the cut file backed, I fussy cut flowers from Paper 7, doubled them up, and layered them on top of the cut file. I wanted to place my photo in a frame so I cut Paige’s Dots Frame from white cardstock and backed it with Paper 3. I applied gesso to Paper 12 and used it for my background, along with a strip of woodgrain paper that serves as a shelf to hold my vase and picture frame. Lastly, I embellished the layout with a few elements from the Ephemera Die Cuts, some Foam Stickers, and stickers from the 8-Page Sticker Book. I hope this inspires you to use Paige’s beautiful Sunflower Vase Cut File for an upcoming layout or project!"

Design Team Member Phil Donahue created this cuteness-overload layout! He says, "This page features the Sunflower Vase Cut File along with Paige's Garden Shoppe collection to document a photo of my niece being super cute wearing a sunflower shirt! To begin, I cut the Sunflower Vase from white cardstock and backed the flowers with the B-side of Paper 7 then used a bit of bronze ink in the bud areas of each for depth and shimmer. I backed the vase part with vellum and a blue paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I added dimensional foam tape to the areas around the vellum and poured gold sequins from my stash inside then backed the whole vase with another piece of vellum, creating a shaker element with the cut file! I found a woodgrain paper from my stash and washed it out a bit with gesso to wash out and brighten up the background. I arranged the photos under the cut file to block some white space with the flowers. Next I glued grey and white bakers twine from the top right to the bottom left corner of the page where photos and embellishments would be placed. I cut out sunflowers from the other side of Paper 7 - I used both sides from the 12x12 Paper Pad. Some were left in clusters and glued directly to the background and others were cut individually to adhere with foam squares for more dimension and interest. I used the 'So Happy' phrase from the Foam Phrase Stickers which features the periwinkle blue I wanted to use as an accent color for the layout. I fished through my stash of pre-cut phrases from Paper 23 and found some in the same blue color then adhered them over areas of embellishments. After, I glued the same gold sequins from the shaker element around areas of embellishments and splattered white acrylic paint to add more interest. I hope you found some inspiration from my layout!"
