Hey friends! Erica here today to share a new layout using the beautiful Love Notes collection and a new cut file! The 'You Make My Heart Sing' cut file plus a few others are now available in the Lori Whitlock shop! I just love using big title cut files like this on my layouts. It is a great way to showcase the beautiful pattern papers. When using cut files I like to back them with the 6x6 paper pads. I like that the images are scaled down and you can see them nicely behind the cut file. This cut file has a nice sized heart that is perfect to add your photo behind!

I trimmed a piece of white textured cardstock to 11.5x11.5 and distressed the edges with my scissors. I matted the white cardstock on the pretty Lovers Lane 12x12 paper. I added foam squares to the back of my cut file and placed it around the center of the layout. Popping the cut file up like this makes it easy to tuck in embellishments around the file.
I used the mini icon stickers and the icon stickers to embellishment my layout. I also used one of the banners in the chit chat pack. For some finishing touches I like to add some enamel sprinkles! Here is a look at my completed layout. I love how the title really stands out on this layout. Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope this inspires you to create a layout with a large title cut file.

  1. Super cute. Wondering if the cut file can be sized for a smaller layout?

    1. Yes, it certainly can. You simply need to alter the size to suit your project.

  2. Beautiful layout!
    Have a great day!
