Laura Rumble – Today It Rained – Brolly Jolly Cut File

Hi folks!  Laura here to share how I rescued a disaster…

We’ve all been there I’m sure.  The machine is set to cut, it’s whirring away and doing its magic and then you do it.  You knock the machine.  Sigh!  I knocked it badly on this occasion and nudged the cutting mat off course.  I paused the machine, cancelled the cut, unloaded the mat and went about trying to salvage what I could.

It was about half cut so I took a straight line across the page, at a slight angle to maximum the amount of the cut file I could save.  I stuck the large piece to my background and added in the smaller pieces using the scrap of half cut file as a guide as to where the pieces needed to go.  I then had a 12×12 with half a cut file ready to go as a background for a layout.

All that and I haven’t even mentioned what cut file I have used yet!  This is (half of!) Brolly Jolly.  You can buy the digi download here and purchase the pre-cut here.

The rest of the layout went without a hitch.  I gathered supplies to match a colour scheme of aqua, purple and lime green and pulled out a rainy photo.  A frog from Shimelle’s Field Trip seemed the perfect fit, a few glittered ephemera pieces from Amy Tan’s Slice Of Life, and a flair button from Pretty Little Studio that featured rain drops.  I built up a large title using a mixture of alpha stickers, letters cut on the Silhouette Cameo and some letters fussy cut from a pocket page card.

I finished the layout with sequins, enamel dots and tiny raindrop ephemera pieces from an old Feed Your Craft set.

You can see it all come together here. Please do drop by and say hello!
