Hi everyone, it is Freebie Friday here today and that means a new cut file, called You Are My Star! This is a print and cut file, so if you are able to print 12×12 you can print this out and then have your cutting machine cut it out for you. Click on the image below to download the product.
Here is the layout I created with this file. I was inspired by a photo of Alan and myself as we were getting ready to drive to a mini vacation!
My plan for this cut file was to have just parts of the stars fold over so the background paper could peek through. I chose this coral color, which contrasts beautifully against the navy Dear Lizzy specialty paper. All the products used in this layout are from the Dear Lizzy Saturday collection, with the exception of the wood veneer stars, which are Studio Calico.
I layered my photo onto other patterned papers from the collection and then added little bits and bobs around the photo as well. The hot air balloons in particular carried a particular feeling I wanted this layout to convey: we were going away for a few days without the kids and so it really did feel like we were wild and free!
I used a chipboard title Wild & Free, which is layered onto the black and white florals that I hand cut from the patterned papers.
Such a fun little cut file! You can watch my process video for the layout here:
I hope you enjoyed seeing this layout come together! Now go download the file and make something! Be sure to use #larkindesigntm if you share online, so I can see!
Hi everyone, it’s Friday and I hope you are getting ready for a great crafty weekend! To help inspire you, I am offering a free Silhouette cut file on the first Friday of every month. Be sure to check out the other file, if you missed it! Here is today’s cut file. If you Click on the image it will take you to the product page, where you can download the file.
This layout is based on a really special conversation that my husband Alan and I were having, and these are words he used to explain why he rubs my feet every night! This is the layout I was inspired to create.
I wanted to try using the Felicity Jane solid card stock papers that come in each month’s kit, and let me tell you they cut like butter in the Silhouette! I am loving this mustard and indigo color combination, so I used the indigo paper to show through behind the cut file.
I kept the embellishments to a very minimum here, just the adorable hexagonal confetti pieces, some florals to repeat the background paper, and a few stamped sentiments.
For my journaling I used one of the tags in the Heidi kit and tucked it behind the photo. I think this is a great way to include your journaling when your title is already really bold and graphic on the page.
One more look at this gorgeous, meaningful layout!

My design concept is to use the cut file in my layouts and allow the background or patterned paper behind it to show through. So each cut file will have a series of fold lines that you can fold over or raise up to reveal your patterned paper or card stock. Here is my layout I created using this cut file.
I have used the Maggie Holmes Crate Paper collection for this layout, with the gold alphabet for my title and word strips + puffy stickers for tiny embellishment clusters on random hearts. For this layout I decided to fold half of the hearts over to allow more of the background patterned paper to show through!
I wrote my journaling around the white card stock. This is part of my Things I Need to Hear series where I remind myself, and you, dear viewer, that I am loved and you are loved. Sometimes it is hard to hear it and hard to believe it, but it is true and it is real.
Thank you for following along with me today! I hope you enjoy the cut file and come back to visit soon! ~Theresa
