Cut File Highlight by Gina Lideros

Hi everyone, Gina here! I really loved the heart in this month’s cut file set. I placed it into a new document in my Silhouette Studio software and repeated the heart several times, by using the copy + paste option.  I started by using the heart cut file at the original size and then increased it, each time I duplicated a new line on my page.

I loaded white cardstock into my machine and cut all of my heart pieces.

Next, I backed heart cut file pieces with different patterned papers from the Joyful and Thankful collections. I arranged cut file hearts with patterned papers across a white cardstock page. Then I used a mini stapler to staple many of the embellishments down.  Next, I added bits and pieces from the February kit + extras across my page.  Next, I splashed white paint and black ink across the page.  I then printed a small wallet sized black and white photo and adhered it to the page.

I finished off my design  by using a sewing machine and white thread to sew down several of the embellishments throughout the page.

We hope this inspires you to put your cut files to use! And, don’t forget to share your projects with us in our Member Gallery or on Instagram with the hashtag #ellesstudio!
