Cut It Up Saturday

Hello everyone, it's time for a new Cut It Up Saturday! Before I move on to the new cutfile, I have a winner to announce from last month's Cut It Up Saturday.

Congratulations Celeste! I love the big cut out title and watercolors on your layout that go so well with the beautiful picture. Please shoot me an email at @ to claim your $10 gift certificate.

This month I designed a more graphic design for you, which you can use in a variety of ways. You can download the cutfile for FREE overhere in the Paper Issues store.

I kept the design of my layout clean and simple. I cut the cutfile out of one of the pattern papers from the October Afternoon Summertime collection and backed up the open spaces with other papers from this same collection. I stitched the cutfile on the background paper and backed the photo with two of the memory cards.

Michelle adjusted the cutfile to turn them into flowers on her page, it's simply stunning! The black outlined cut is such a great addition and it makes the colors of the Pink Paislee Bella Rouge pop off the page.

McJennifer used the October Afternoon Summertime collection and created this pretty layout. I love how she used the cut out parts of the cutfile again by backing them behind the cutfile. That picture is sooo adorable too and the colors match the papers perfectly! 

Tarrah used some Chic Tags and Colorcast Designs for her layout. She cut out the cutfile on white cardstock and stitched it on a white cardstock background. I love that tone-on-tone effect and all the colorful touches she added with embellishments!

Starting this month we have made some changes for joining in our challenges. You won't be able to link up in our blog posts anymore, but we have albums in our Facebook group Paper Issues Friends & Fans to share your projects and participate in the challenges. 

Check out the August album to link up your projects made with this FREE cutfile and to find our other challenges for this month. We can't wait to see what you will come up with, you might be the next winner of a $10 gift certificate! You have until September 13th to enter.

Thank you for stopping by today and have an amazing weekend!
