First Cut

Back to School Scrapbook Layout

 

Check out this cute school bus cut file.

Usually I use different colors than shown in the pictures of the designs but with this one being a school bus I kept the color scheme the same.

I ungrouped the design so that I could move various images around & arrange them to cut out of certain colours of card stock.  I didn’t have two different shades of yellow so I just used the one colour that I had. Once they were all cut out I then shaded some pieces a bit darker with an ink pad. Super easy and I got the look I was going for.

I then put all the pieces together and used some foam squares to add a bit of dimension to the shape (rather just a flat image).

I also cut out the window backing part from some Silhouette Vellum – it gives a somewhat transparent look.

I cut a few other designs out to add to my layout. For my title I cut the design from green Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock and then created an offset image for in black card stock and adhered that behind.

I added a bit more green colour by using another cut design – the numbers were rather fitting for a ‘back-to-school’ layout!

  1. Way to rock that free shape, Cari! I love it!

  2. Cool layout and great idea! This shape would also make a great card front.

  3. What a nice layout. I appreciated your tip about inking the yellow – I never think to do that if I don’t have two shades of the same color. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I love this layout and have plenty of school pictures I can scrapbook using your ideas! So I guess I am saying I’m going to “scrap lift” your idea! Thank you for the inspiration!
