Hi Chaps, I'm here today with a SpiegelMom Scraps layout using one of our free cut files.  You can find all our cut files here, and tag your Instagram photos with #smscutfile when you use our files - we love to see your work.  I especially want to see this cut file in use as it is one I designed.


I have just got my hands on the latest sequin releases.  My favourite (I love them all, but you know!) are the little stars 'Stargazer' but I was also really taken with the yellow mix 'What's Up Buttercup'.  Using them as my cue I pulled out some yellow papers and an assortment of black cardstock with different finishes.


I spent some time cutting out pieces and backing the cut file.  I tried to spread the colours and patterns out as evenly as I could.  Once the hexagons were backed I added some black ink splatters and a sprinkling of sequins.  Very clean and simple, but also bold with a big impact.


All that was needed to finish it off were the name and date tucked in, and a final ribbon tab (Swiss Dots from Crafty Ribbons) for an extra splash of yellow.

I love the white space and the limited colour palette.  How about you?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Laura, Wasn't sure about the black on this, but when I saw the finished LO, it makes the yellow stand out and is fab.

    Hope you are having a good weekend. Sue

    1. I always get a little nervous using black, especially black ink! X
