Elle's Studio: Digital Cut Fun Part 2!

Hi Creative Friends! 
Welcome back for more Elle's Studio inspiration!  

As you already know, I am just crazy for the monthly Digital Cut Files!
& today I am expanding on that love with

 Digital Cut Fun: Part 2! 

***If you missed Digital Cut Fun you can go back and check it out HERE***

Today's focus is on combining those awesome digital files with the monthly printable designs - yay!
Here's what the March set looks like....

Totally awesome, huh?!

I just adore all the cute bunny designs in the latest Happy Day Printables set, and couldn't resist creating an Easter page with them!

Here's my layout, 
"Bunny Love"

Oh the cuteness! Does it get any sweeter than this?!! And yes, yes, yesssss to all the bunnies!

You'll be surprised just how super easy it is to re create this look! 
Simply open the Happy Days Printables and select the images you wish to print. Edit sizes according to your needs & print away!
 I was super lazy and selected my images and just hit the 'share' & 'print' options in Microsoft Windows. I selected my sizes according to the options in Print Pictures. 
Yes, it's honestly that easy! 
 Fussy cut them out (or if you're really clever print & cut with your silhouette software) and voila! Rabbit season!
I especially love the heart icon which I over size to create the cut file bunnies tummy with! 
And speaking of cut files, here's how I created those sweet big feature bunnies....

Enlarge the white tail bunny digital design to 11 inches in height, left align the image and cut it out with white cardstock. Keep the cut out to use as a future template, and use the bunny 'hole' or negative to back with pattern papers. I love the softness and whimsy of the gray stars design in the Live Laugh Love 6 x 6 Paper Stack. As I opted to use 6 x 6 papers, I rounded the bunny chin & glued it over the other sheet of paper to avoid the appearance of ugly join marks. I then add that extra large heart icon to create the bunny tummy. So cute! Using black cardstock scraps, I snip out a nose and eyes for our sleepy bunny. A pink bow and faux stitching (black felt tip pen) complete the main rabbit. 

For the second pattern paper rabbit, you will need your previously cut out rabbit template. Position the template over the paper you wish to use. I chose the pretty pink hearts from the Live Laugh Love collection because they coordinated perfectly with the heart icon printable, and then it's a simple trace & cut! SO easy! Apply the faux stitching and glue into position. 

Now it's time to make the bunny banner! 

Suspend some baker's twine onto the top right hand corner of your page, and glue into place. Take your Happy Days Printable bunnies and adhere them to the string like flags. Divide each bunny with a Puffy Sticker star from the March Kit & Add-Ons, and add a pom pom cotton tail to each one! Adorable!

Use more of your printed bunnies to both adorn & layer your photo onto....

You'll also spot a few items from our March Kit here ;)

I add more of the printed bunnies to the left side of my feature rabbit too! 
Complete your layout with Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Enamel Dots & Heart Of Gold Chipboard Stickers. 
Simple, fun and oh so perfect for Easter memory keeping!

Layering cut files with printables is super easy but looks so effective!
I hope you'll give this technique a try! 

Thanks so much for visiting today!
til next time, 

Happy Arty Days,
