The Cut File Challenge Week 7 – Crafty Jen Schow

Hello friends and welcome to week 7 of The Cut File Challenge! I am bit late with this one, mainly because I couldn’t settle on a layout design! But, I got it done!

This week I am using this gorgeous cut file by Crafty Jen Schow. Jen is one of my very good scrappy friends! I absolutely love everything that she does and I am so happy to share her creative talents with you. She has been in the scrapbooking industry for years, working at both Close to My Heart and Silhouette before becoming a creative entrepreneur. She has sat on numerous design teams, most recently the Ali Edwards Digital Creative Team and Felicity Jane.

And here’s my layout using this awesome cut file:

The photo was taken during an early summer trip the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens. I have developed quite an interest in plants and flowers so touring the gardens was a real treat. I took the most amazing photos on my iPhone – I totally impressed myself!

I created this layout using the remaining bits from my July and August Felicity Jane exclusive kits. Both kits contain black, red, and blue elements that compliment the colors in the photo.

I tucked the photo into the curve of the Floral Swag cut file – this perfectly highlighted the photo and added a lot of interest to the layout. It looks like the cut file is a natural extension of the photo!

I layered pattern paper, a journal card, and a tag behind the photo. Rubber charms, a flare badge, and stickers were added to create embellishment clusters. For the title I used the rubber word “beautiful” and dipped wood veneer letters for the word “blooms”. I completed the layout with journaling, sequin, and mist sprinkles using Black Velvet Color Shine by Heidi Swapp.
