Let’s start the year with an exclusive cut file!

Let’s start the year with an exclusive cut file!

Good morning and Happy 2019 cut file fans! Nicole here to kick off a fun new year of free cut files! This month’s freebie is perfect for a background on your project, or would be great used as a stencil!

January 2019 free cut file from Scrapbook & Cards Today

download HERE

Here is what I created with this versatile cut file:


Supplies: Patterned paper, die cut ephemera, journaling card, Art Crayons, Thickers: Vicki Boutin; Clip: Heidi Swapp; Enamel buttons: Shimelle

I cut the background from some white cardstock and left the design intact on my cutting mat so that I could add some watercolouring to the background design. I used some Vicki Boutin Art Crayons to add touches of yellow to the white cardstock in just a few areas, being careful not too add too much water.


This woven design is perfect to tuck in some fussy cut flowers or ephemera, so I did just that, arranging the items around my journaling card, title and photo of ME!


I encourage you to download this cut file HERE and give it a try on your next project, maybe even include a photo of YOU to kick off the new year!

Enjoy and see you next month!

~ Nicole

    2019 will be a year of adventures in card making…and gift tags, bookmarks, and envelopes. But this will not happen until I get organized…ugh! Loved this card on the blog!

  11. Annette Lund January 2, 2019 at 2:11 pm

    I love blogs! I plan to use all these blogs to improve my crafting…and to feel empowered to work on my own designs.

  14. Lori A. Geise January 2, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    OK, I’m showing my lack of knowledge here, but what exactly is a cut file and how do you use it? I have a Cricut Expression. Would that work or would I need a newer machine?

  15. Jacqueline January 2, 2019 at 4:44 pm

    Beautiful layout with the cut file design. Thanks.

  16. Diane Rizak January 2, 2019 at 5:29 pm

    Beautiful layout! I love the cut file! I’m new to this blog so I have a question. Is the cut file only available for a limited time or will it be accessible for a while? My computer is currently out of commission until I can get it fixed 😞

  17. Nina Oelke January 2, 2019 at 6:29 pm

    Beautiful layout Nicole ❤️

    What a pretty LO to display your lovely photo. The trellis and beautiful flowers tumbling over it create the perfect background.
