Hand-Cutting Ideas

Cut and Ink a Scrapbook Layout Title

Design by Erica Hernandez

If cutting an entire title seems daunting, start with individual oversize letters for a striking effect. Erica cut the large letters on this layout from white cardstock and then inked the edges to add dimension. She also handcut the large heart from patterned paper; when combined with the letters, it has a graphic impact. The more intricate script title was printed on a transparency and laid over the heart and printed journaling.
