Free File Friday: Cut File Titles

This month for Free File Friday:  use a cut file title from the Paper Issues free files in your project.  Pick a single cut file word, a fun saying, phrase, or a whole quote. 
We want to see you use cut file words!
Here are a bunch of ways to get your creative wheels spinning:

I converted the Sun & Fun title into a stitching cut file with little dots instead of cut lines.  You can find more details on my blog on how to do this with the Silhouette. Next, I hand stitched my title and added watercolors to the insides of the title to match the Bella Blvd Secrets of the Sea collection.

Here's a picture of how I cut the file with regular cut lines and then use that to help guide me where to stitch on my background.

Amanda is up next with her "Explore" layout. I love how she used Bella Blvd Make Your Mark to back the cut file flowers and leaves. The title is so pretty lightly colored and mixed with the stickers to define its placement. I love how light and airy this feels when cut files are cut on white and layered against a white background.

Anna is rocking the large ampersand cut file as part of her title.  It is beautiful all stitched and full of Pink Paislee Oh My Heart collection. I love the dimension she added with the Oh My Heart Thickers. Her photo is the perfect match to these playful colors!

Lisa used the scripty summer as part of her layout title. I love all of the Pebbles Girl Squad that she used to create her deliciously sweet tribute and a cake photo! Also check out the cute Amy Tangerine Hustle and Heart mini bows that she scattered throughout her design.

Devra is up with her cool dude layout.  I love how she rocked Summer Lights with her chill boy page. The dude cut file title is such a fun addition to her mix of title words.  Check out woodgrain paper, it is so awesome as a background. The  Stitch Happy twine border is perfect for this chillax design.

Rachel is closing out the design team round up of inspiration with her awesome design. Her photo is just perfection peeking out with this mega-sized title. The Photo Play Paper Freestyle papers and embellishments  like the enamel plus signs are such amazing match to her boy design.  The border stitching just pops against the wood grain paper. Try supersizing a cut file word to tuck your photos behind on one of your projects.  It is such a cool effect!
