Hi all Rachel here! As most of you know I LOVE cut files and use them on nearly all my layouts. Today I have a pretty layout that is fun to make and there is only one piece of 12×12 paper used. I have used the SPRIGHTLY paper to create these gorgeous flowers.

I chose a super pretty flower cut file from the Silhouette Design Store. I created three different sizes by re sizing to large, medium and small. I then used from 6 to 3 layers for each flower. This creates the effect of different flowers, different layers and sizes which adds dimension to your layout.

Before attaching my flowers I added some Unforgettable clear sticker paint strokes to provide a contrast. I also cut some leaf branches in white so I could tuck them under the flowers.I laid out my flowers and worked out where I was going to add some stamping. I have used the gorgeous Bohemian Dream stamp set. Once I had done all this I added my flowers to the left of my page.

I added my 4×4 inch photo tucking it slightly under the flowers to connect the elements. I added a bright pink paint brush stroke from the Unforgettable clear stickers under my photo to draw your eye to the photo.

I used the word Shine from the black foam title stickers and again added another bright pink paint stroke clear sticker before attaching to add contrast and draw the eye.

To finish off I added some butterflies from the Unforgettable die cut pack, adding a paint blotch clear sticker under the wings finished off with an enamel dot under the wing. I added several black hearts from the Unforgettable foam titles around my page.

 

When using a cut file such as a flower, and you want to use more than one, before you purchase another think of resizing and how many layers can be added or taken away, this way one cut file can look like several different ones.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope my layout using one piece of paper and one cut file inspires you to get creative this week!
