This time I am so excited to share because I used probably one of my favorite cut files by far! I used the Vacay Mode cut file set which is up on the Etsy shop now.
When I saw this cutfile, the first thing that stood out to me was that gorgeous swimsuit! I couldn’t resist not putting it on a layout. So what I did was I opened it up on my Silhouette Studio and used the super quick steps that Designer Ashley Horton shares in this video to choose a single image, and to be able to resize without using the rest of the icons. I also kept the flowers on the flip-flops to use as a stencil on this finished page...
I love it!
So, I resized the swimsuit to fit the size of my page on a diagonal. After I cut it out, I traced around it and stitched with some matching pink and minty green threads. I don’t usually go for stitching because it is very time consuming. But I felt like it would be perfect to do for this specific cut file considering it’s a form of clothing.
I also added a bit of texture around the page by using the cut out flower negatives to use with some modeling paste as a stencil. I love the subtle but perfect tropical feel it gives, and it doesn’t make my page look so bare around the white spaces.
So I decided to bring out my long time hoarded (don’t we all relate? haha) Summer Lights collection by Pink Paislee to scrap a photo of myself at the beach feeling bold and beautiful in my swimsuit.
Life’s too short to care how the swimsuit fits, gals!
I kept the photo to the bottom right of the swimsuit surrounded by a cluster of embellishments from the ephemera pack, chipboard stickers, and card stock stickers.
I balanced it all out by adding a second cluster of embellishments to the top part of the swimsuit and basically keeping that tag as my title, “Hey Girl, Hey.”
That is how this layout came together, friends. I love the fun feel to it that comes from the Summer Lights collection, and I just love the whole fresh feminine feel to it all.
I hope you enjoyed today’s project share, and I hope that you feel inspired to play with the Vacay Mode cut file set available on the Cut Shoppe Etsy Store! Thanks for stopping by, xo.
