Hey there! And you thought you were going to see more of my December Daily! LOL! Sorry to disappoint. Since receiving my December Cocoa Daisy kit and seeing this paper from Pink Paislee, I have been obsessed with creating a cut file that would reveal and highlight both sides of the paper.
Having the weekend to play, I was finally able to realize that vision and create a layout around the paper and cut file! Not the way I usually create but fun nonetheless! And with the support goodies from the rest of the Cocoa Daisy kits, it was easy to put together as everything is so well coordinated.
My plan was to be able to show each of the squares of patterned paper on the reverse side of the paper by being able to fold out the half of a heart. That way your would see both sides of the paper. The above cut file is what ensued. There are 5 rows of hearts; each row has two hearts cut out, one of which is removed and overlaps the two. The whole paper was then backed with a Cocoa Daisy exclusive from Mommyish.
You can see the effect created from the cut files better in the above picture. A few of the hearts I anchored down with a cross stitch "x". Bits and pieces of the coordinating embellishments played support to the picture and added pops of additional color. You can download this file for your personal use, it is only available in Studio format.
The rows of hearts gave me the option of using either a larger photo on the right hand side or several, smaller photos. I went with several smaller photos that told a story and showed my daughters love for this horse, Lucky. A trimmed down 3x4 pocket card from the Day In The Life kit provided the perfect housing for my journaling.
If you use my cut file, I would love to see what you created with it. Be sure to attach a link in the comments of tag me in Facebook or Instagram! Happy crafting!
