When your project is missing some graphic touch, or needs a pop of color somewhere, why not turn to Elle’s Studio digital cut files to find what you need to add that finishing touch? Cut from any type of cardstock or patterned paper to coordinate with your project and add a custom element! That’s what Kristina Proffitt did today on the new project she’s sharing with us using the August kit and extras. Let’s take a look!
I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t utilize digital files as much as I should, but when I saw the August 2019 Digital Cut File I just knew that it was time to dust off the ol’ Silhouette and make it a point to take advantage of the super cute digitals that coordinate with the kit and add-ons each month!
For this pocket page spread, I used the “love this” pinked circle graphic from the August 2019 Digital Cut File as a focal point for my 6″ x 8″ journaling page. I downloaded the file and opened it in Silhouette Studio software, enlarging it before cutting on a really bright and fun blue cardstock. I loved the Makes Me Smile Cork Circles included in the August add-ons, so seeing some these in digital form made me do a little happy dance!
I just love the die-cut color and I knew that it would give my pocket page just the right amount of POP it needed. I took a sheet of patterned paper from the Sunshine 6 x 6 Paper Stack and adhered it on the back of the graphic so that the colorful, happy polka dots would show through to the front in the letters that were cut out. I simply used washi tape to hold that patterned paper in place on the back of the die cut. I adhered the cut graphic just off of the top edge of the journaling page and cut the excess off. I loved the look of that!
For the rest of the pockets, I used goodies from the August 2019 Kit and adhered a 2″ x 3″ photo on one of the journaling tags. After adding some simple embellishments, like the Be Yourself Phrase Stickers and Back to School Puffy Stickers, I stamped the date, hand-wrote a little bit and called this spread done!
I love how simple it was to document this story and how the August Digital Cut File provided such a fun pop on my journaling page. Whether you’re using the digital files by cutting them out on your die cutting machine or using them digitally on your photos or to create your own journaling tags, they’re a fun way to give your documenting a POP of fun!
Be sure to take advantage of the awesome digital cut files that release every month with each new monthly kit! I challenge you to use one on your next project, friends!
