Hi Chaps, I'm here today with a SpiegelMom Scraps layout using one of our free cut files. You can find all our cut files here, and tag your Instagram photos with #smscutfile when you use our files - we love to see your work. I especially want to see this cut file in use as it is one I designed.
I have just got my hands on the latest sequin releases. My favourite (I love them all, but you know!) are the little stars 'Stargazer' but I was also really taken with the yellow mix 'What's Up Buttercup'. Using them as my cue I pulled out some yellow papers and an assortment of black cardstock with different finishes.
I spent some time cutting out pieces and backing the cut file. I tried to spread the colours and patterns out as evenly as I could. Once the hexagons were backed I added some black ink splatters and a sprinkling of sequins. Very clean and simple, but also bold with a big impact.
All that was needed to finish it off were the name and date tucked in, and a final ribbon tab (Swiss Dots from Crafty Ribbons) for an extra splash of yellow.
I love the white space and the limited colour palette. How about you?
Thanks for stopping by!
