4 Reasons Why Our Cut Above® Layout Kits Will Make Your Life Easier

If you haven’t heard about our Cut Above® layout kits before, now is the perfect time to learn about them—because this month they’re 50% off! That means they’re just $7.48 USD each!

We have two different kits: Forever & Always and Little One. They come with instructions, base pages, pre-cut pieces, and stickers to complete a two-page scrapbooking layout—no cutting required! You also get two Memory Protectors™ for storing your finished pages.

As an added bonus, the kits also come with coordinating pocket scrapbooking cards and two divided Memory Protectors for any leftover photos you may have.

Here’s what the Forever & Always layout kit looks like when it’s all completed—and remember, you make all of these pages for $7.48!

If saving big on an easy scrapbooking project isn’t enough to send you racing to your shopping cart, here are four more reasons why our Cut Above® layout kits will make your life easier:

1. You’ll save time.

And that means you’ll have more time to spend on other scrapbooking projects, learning new crafting techniques, or doing something else entirely! Check out this video to see how quickly the Little One kit comes together—you’ll be done in 15 minutes or less!

2. There is NO cutting . . . except cutting corners. 😉

No trimming, no fussy cutting, no cranking your die-cutting machine, no programming your Cricut®—aka less hassle for you! We know you love detailed paper accents though, so we just include those right in your kit! For example, take a look at the circle on the Little One layout with those pie-shaped pieces—creating something like that by hand takes a protractor… and a lot of time… and patience. And then you have the doilies on the Forever & Always layout. Sure, you can get that look with a Cricut®, but getting it in a kit saves you the time and hassle of cutting and cleaning up!

You might take a look at these kits and think “Well, I’m not getting married or having a baby anytime soon, so I don’t know what I’d do with them.”

Well stop that silliness, and open your mind to the world of possibilities! 😉 These kits can be used for more than just two occasions. Ready for some inspiration?

Or using it for anybody you want to spend forever & always with, like family? We especially love these generational photos of grandma, daughter, and granddaughter.

And even though YOU may not be the one having a baby, the Little One kit is perfect for pictures of any little one (including toddlers and little kiddos!) in your life, be it niece, grandson, cousin, goddaughter—you name it!

It’s even good for fur babies!

4. They make handmade easy.

Even though the base pages are printed and all the loose pieces are pre-cut, these layouts are still handmade—and you can tell! One thing that sets these pages apart from any store-bought, pre-designed scrapbooks is that they have dimension. To start off, you are attaching loose pieces and stickers to the pages, which already gives them dimension—but then you can also pop up any pieces you want with 3-D foam tape for even more personality!

Tags, Cards, and Advent Calendars—Oh My!

Gift-giving is about more than just getting the perfect gift for someone. It’s about showing someone you care. That’s why we’re big fans of pairing gifts with handmade cards or tags—they show those you love that you took time to make their gift extra special.

We know the holiday season can get busy, so we’ve made handmade easy with our Cut Above™ card and tag kits. These kits require no measuring or cutting. You simply stamp on a holiday sentiment of your choice and then follow instructions for attaching the pieces together.

Of course, like any of our kits, you can also take the artwork in any direction you like! Here we typed a “punny” message to play off of our gift. We also added some grey stars and sparkles to personalize it even more!

And since our Art Studio is just brimming with creativity, they had a lot of fun creating this advent calendar using some leftover card and tag pieces.

To create the calendar, the artists added the card and tag pieces to envelopes that were cut using our Cricut® Artbooking collection.

Using our My Acrylix® Inked Alphabet stamp set, they added numbers to the gold foil accent pieces. Isn’t it amazing what some scraps of paper and a little creativity can create? This advent calendar really shows how truly beautiful the patterns, shapes, and textures of the Cut Above™ holiday kits are, but of course you could create it with any holiday paper scraps you have.

Make this holiday special by adding your own personal touch with our Cut Above™ holiday card and tag kits. We know you’ll love giving something handmade!
