Fall Snuggle

Hello everyone!

Nathalie here with you today to share a new fall layout for the Cut Shoppe using three cut files from the store:  Boys Rule, Leaf it to Me, and Oakley Avenue.

For this layout, I started by using the scribbled star  image  of the Boys Rule cut file to create the circles on the background ( i just cut out the star on the file),  I backed the circles with vellum, and added some hand stitching around the edge of the circle.  The leaf shapes of the Oakley Avenue, and Leaf it to Me  cut files were used to create all the leaves in the design.

I used vellum, and papers from Ashley Horton's Oakley Avenue collection for Pretty Little Studio  to  create, and back the leaf cut-outs (from the Leaf it to Me, and Oakley Avenue cut files).   The rest of the embelishments come from the Oakley Avenue collection. 

I hope this inspire you all to visit the Cut Shoppe Etsy store, and pick some of  the many designs available.  There is so many to choose from  that can be used to document your memories.   Remember to link your finished projects to the blog, or tag The Cut Shoppe when you share your projects on social media (#thecutshoppe).  We love to see what you are creating!

Thank you for visiting today.

See you all soon!

Hi Everyone! Michelle here today with a fun new layout featuring one of the new cut files released in The Cut Shoppe this week - The Midnight Hour. 

This little Aussie family isn't big on Halloween, and we're currently in the middle of a very cold Spring season, so most of the current Cut files were a little tricky to use. However this super awesome 12x12 cut file made up of stars looked like it was going to be fun to create with.  The collection I've used for this layout is the stunningly beautiful Make a Wish collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio, made up of some of my favourite bright colours.

To start the layout, I cut the entire design out on white cardstock, then saved all the extra star pieces from the middle of the whole stars. Next I went back to silhouette studio and removed 1 single star from the design, the one with the empty centre, and enlarged it to fit the page. This took a couple of cuts to ensure I had the right placement to be able to use the extra cut piece over the top, without having to chop any edges off. 

Once all cuts were complete, I layered a piece of pattern paper with the full 12x12 stars cut out over the top, then the enlarged star cut sheet on top of that. I've sewn around the edge of the star for a little extra detail, then added the larger star cut out over the top with some foam tape for dimension.

I kept the photo stack pretty basic with two pattern papers and a couple of label stickers, then a cluster of ephemera from the collection pack and more stars to the top right.

I've used pieces of the stars cut file that weren't going to show through the large star design in the top and bottom corners. This creates a diagonal design on the layout, and helps to draw the eyes attention across the page. I layered more pieces of ephemera from the collection to finish it off each corner.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope you've found my layout inspiring. 
Until next time, Happy Scrapping

Halloween with Ghost Town

Hi Girls! It's Flóra here with a Halloween themed layout. Even if we don't celebrate Halloween sometimes we carve pumpkin lamps. I decided to document our first pumpkins. This happened in 2011 and it's a really sweet unforgettable memory. This color palette is not my favourite, but I like the result.  

For the 8.5x11 scrapbook layout I used the Ghost Town collection designed by Ashley Horton. I really love it as it's something different as all the other Halloween collections out there. So fresh, colorful and fun, but it has still Halloween spirit.

I also used Ashley's Happy Halloween Wood Veneer Set on my layout. I like the size, they are super cute.

I printed the background on a A4 sized paper and with a black cardstock stripe I completed to 8.5x11. All the die cuts were printed as well. With Silhouette print & cut function is very easy, fast any comfortable. The result is professional. 

That was it for today. I hope you like my new Halloween layout. Don't forget to check The Cut Shoppe store for more Halloween cut files and goodies. Thanks for stopping by!

Jedi Master

Halloween is almost here, and we've got some new cut file sets in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that are perfect for documenting your Halloween memories!  My layout today, features a photo of our furry family member, Baxter.  We recently stopped at Pet Co., and the doggie Halloween costumes were calling out for a model.  After several different ones, Yoda was picture worthy!  I thought the new Midnight Hour background cut file was a perfect complement to the photo.

I knew I wanted to use the design in the background, but I didn't want to make it the full background of the layout.  So I decided to cut a large star design from White cardstock, and then added The Midnight Hour cut file behind it.  I also layered a subtle patterned paper behind the cut file, to complete the look.  And I can't have a layout without machine stitching, so I stitched around the large star shape.

I also thought it would be fun to tilt my photo, title and embellishments to flow with the tilt of the large star shape.  I used a mix of Crate Paper collections, including After Dark and Gather.  Sounds like an odd combo, but the designs on the Gather patterned papers were generic enough to fit right in with the embellishments from the After Dark collection.

I finished the layout with a few Happy Halloween wood veneers, that are also available in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store.  And I splattered a bit of Black Color Shine over the layout, to tie everything together!

We've got everything you need for your Halloween projects, so stop by TCS Etsy store to check out all of the Halloween cut files, Ghost Town Digital/Printable collection, Happy Halloween Wood Veneers, and Halloween Acrylic.  Here's a look at all of the new cut file sets, you'll find in the shop today.

You Stole My Heart

Hello scrappy friends, it's Zinia here and today I want to share with you a wreath design I created using a super cute cut file from the Cut Shoppe etsy store.

So I grabbed a bunch of 6x6 paper sheets mainly from Paige Evans' "Take me Away" collection and I started cutting a some of the shapes from the Oodles of Doodles cut file.  I picked different shapes in different sizes for every paper I cut to have some variety of die cuts to work with.

Once I had all my pieces cut I arranged them on my page. To make my wreath more "rich" I decided to fussy cut some flowers that came in one of the 12x12 papers from the "Take me Away" collection. I started committing to the arrangement by sticking down the flowers first and then slowly adding the die cut pieces. 

It was a bit hard to balance all the different shapes, sizes and patterns but I took my time and made sure to spread everything evenly. 

To add some more interest around the wreath, I sprinkled with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sweet Mint and Gold. 

For my title I used the gold phrase thickers from the "Take me Away" collection paired with the small gold alphas from the Maggie Holmes "Gather" accent stickers sheet.

With all the business of the wreath, I didn't really need to do a lot of embellishing. I added a few gold phrase stickers and a few more little bits just help the design look more balanced.

I'm really excited about the way this turned out. I enjoyed the whole process of placing all the little die cut pieces and adding the final touches with the extra embellishments.

I really hope you enjoyed this as well and you got inspired to create something beautiful with your cut files from the Cut Shoppe etsy store. Until next time, happy scrapping :)

Hello Fall

Hello friends!  Candace here with you to share a sweet fall layout featuring my favorite fall cut file, Leaf Pile.  This delicate cut file is a perfect background for any of your fall themed projects!  You can check it out in the store here.

To start the layout I cut the file out of white card stock and to create softness layered it over vellum.  To continue with the theme of the layout I used the Autumn Day collection by Photoplay Paper Co. 

A few close ups of the details...

I layered paper from the collection to create a photostack behind a sweet photo of my little men.

To add detail to the layout and to adhere the cut file down with out using adhesive I stitched the file down with my sewing machine.  I love the soft affect of the stitching over the delicate file and vellum.

For the final touches on the layout I added a small cluster of embellishments to the lower right corner of the photo.  I worked along the diagonal and added a fall banner and a wood veneer title.  
Such a fun fall layout!  
Make sure that you stop by the shop to check out this and all the other fall themed cut files!  

Hope you have a beautiful fall day!

Guest Designer | Kriszti Bozsits

Happy Monday everyone!  We've got a new Guest Designer to kick off some inspiration for this week.  Please help us welcome Kriszti Bozsits!
I'm a coffee addict. This page is created with my morning coffee. I used the Picture Perfect and The Cuppa Joe cut files (Cuppa Joe is one of my most favorite cut files I have ever laid eyes on). I decided to use My Mind's Eye On trend dots paper, Pink Paislee Fancy Free and Jen Hadfields collections for this layout. I machine stitched a circle around the design.

What a gorgeous layout Kriszti!!  Love the fun layering and the large stitched circle with the polka dot background paper!  Thanks so much for guesting with us!  You can find more of Kriszti's gorgeous work on her Blog, PaperHeart.
