October Digital Cut Files

By Jenni Calma

October 27, 2016

Hello there!  I am sharing my own creation today, focusing on the Digital Cut File for October’s kit ‘The Weekender’.  The cut file this month is a repeating pattern of ‘V’s facing or opposing each other.  I chose to orient mine vertically and cut this yellow stripe patterned paper from Amy Tangerine.


I also enlarged the pattern a little, but centered it to keep a border around the  outside.  One of the things I find so fun about cut files, is the versatility they provide.  You can create an endless combination by changing scale, direction, tracing only parts of the pattern, copying and overlapping…endless!


I thought about enlarging this pattern so much that it created an interactive element, where you could flip up a tab for a hidden surprise!  However, I chose to fold random pieces of paper under, over and some not at all, allowing a peek at the pattern underneath.  I wanted to highlight the black & white patterned paper from WRMemory Keepers and play off my photograph.  I also wanted to use a warm color palette of peach, orange, yellow and pink, for Fall.


I watercolored part of this beautiful black and white graphic leaf paper from Amy Tangerine in the colors I wanted to incorporate.  I colored the clear acrylic script phrase pieces from Scrapbook Circle using a Copic marker.  Layering all the pieces together with more embellishments, I finish up the page with some gold ink splatters.
