The Cut File Challenge Week 8: Crafty Jen Schow

Hello lovelies! I am back with Week 8 of The Cut File Challenge. This week I am featuring yet another gorgeous cut file from Crafty Jen Schow.

And here’s my layout using this cut file.


My intention for this layout was to keep things clean and simple. I initially did not set out to do another layout with a floral cut file. But when I was shopping around for inspiration, I found this cut file and knew I had to use it!


This layout features photos of my daughter and my mother. We were having lunch Mellow Mushroom, a yummy pizza resturant, and I snapped these photos of them as they snuggled and talked. I love capturing their relationship – two best friends, decades apart yet they have so much in common. I wanted this layout to be about the photos and the story that the photos represent: the precious relationship between a grandparent and grandchild.



In keeping with the simple design, I used Neena Bright White card stock to cut the floral cut file. I positioned the flower and the larger leaf to the left side of the photos and the two smaller leaves to the bottom right of the photos. This gives the appearance that the photos are being framed by the flowers.

Using the remaining bits of my Felicity Jane Maggie kit, I embellished the layout with small strips of patterned paper, a rubber charm, a flare piece that says “darling” and a tab. To the wood veneer piece “You and Me”, I created a dipped effect by embossing the bottom part of the wood veneer piece with white embossing powder by Recollections. I sprinkled sequins around the layout for a finishing touch.

I absolutely love how this layout came out!


Here is the process video for this layout! And stay turned for Weeks 9 and 10 of The Cut File Challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
