Creating a Title Page from a Cut File | Documenting Disney 2021
My Step by Step Process + a Magical Cut File
Hey friends! Summer is in full swing and I've been having so much fun collecting and documenting our summer memories. If you follow me over on Instagram, you might know that I'm currently working on documenting the Disney trip we took in June of this year and I'm so excited to share my title page below!
I knew from the start that I wanted to flex my creative muscles in this album so I decided to try a crafty technique I've always been intimidated by: CUT FILES!
The inspiration for this layout definitely comes from the queens of cut files: Paige Taylor Evans and Dearly Dee. Their layouts inspired me to create my own cut file to use as the title page for my 3x8 album.
I knew I wanted my title page to be the size of my 3x8 page protectors so I sized it to about 4 inches by 6 inches and added two tabs so I could punch it straight into my album.
You can download the cut file I created by subscribing to my newsletter below! Included in the zip file you'll receive are the SVG file for the front and back parts of the cut file as well as two PNG versions (one with the tabs and one without).
Once you download your cut files, you'll follow the same steps as I did in the process video below.
Once you've opened your SVG file in Silhouette Studio, you can print your registration marks and cut out both the front and back portions of the cut files at the same time.
Once we have our cut file ready, we'll move on to the pattern paper. You can definitely use pattern paper from your stash for this or you can do what I did and print out digital papers to use. I've included the photoshop template I used to size my patterns to fit so you can simply drag and drop your files into the template and print them out.
I used various papers from the Hello Mouse Collection by Sahlin Designs and I love that they add a little more of a Disney pop to my page.
To make cutting out each letter a little simpler on myself, I used the inside parts of each of the letters as a guide. Since your pattern paper will be adhered to the back side of the cut file, be sure you're leaving an outline around each letter.
To adhere each pattern to the back of my cut file, I used the Fine tip of my Tombow Mono Aqua Liquid Glue bottle to trace the back of each letter and add my pattern paper. Once I had backed my entire cut file with pattern paper, I used the same liquid glue to adhere the Backside of the my cut file to finish it off.
