Love

Hi! Irit here with a 12x12 layout I created using some fun new cut files from The Cut Shoppe! Here's the finished page-


To create this layout I used two cut files-



The Hello Hearts file is great for a statement piece. I cut it from white cardstock and mounted it on some pretty Felicity Jane Happy Day patterned paper.


For my title I used the word Love from the Oodles of Doodles file and backed it also with patterned paper.




Check out the video tutorial I created-


Thanks for stopping by, check out The Cut Shoppe for these cut files and many many more! Have a lovely scrappy day!

All My Love

Today's layout is brought to you by the Everyday Essentials cut file!


I was immediately drawn to the string-art "Love" and wanted it to be the main focus of a layout.


I cut the "Love" from patterned paper, and layered it over my photo. Next, I added some Gelatos to the background beneath my photo to give it an added layer of interest.


 I used gold rub ons and coordinating flowers throughout the page. I decided to make the title "All My Love" so I added gold Thickers to the side of the L. I finished the page off with some gold mist!


That wraps it up today, thank you for joining me!

Guest Designer | Niki Rowland

We are so excited to have a new Guest Designer with us today!  Welcome Niki Rowland!  Niki has created a beautiful layout to share with us, using the Tall Type Alpha cut file and the Everyday Essentials cut file!  Let's get to know Niki, before we take a look at what she created!

http://www.beingscrappy.co.uk/

Hi Lovelies, my name is Niki, I'm 33 years old and live just outside London in the UK with my husband and two gorgeous young children, who spend most of their time driving me insane and sabotaging my crafting efforts, but they give me something to scrap about so I don't mind :)  I'm a SAHM, full time scrapbooker and part-time childminder. I've been a crafter for as long as I can remember and have been in love with scrapbooking since about 2001. I love nothing more than retreating to my craft room and playing with pretty paper, yes, I am a pretty paper addict.

I love to create bright, fun and detailed layouts about my life right now and my children. I'm a 'throw it all on' kind of girl, because I have so much stash that I would drown in it if I didn't pile it high on my layouts. I love to try new things and techniques and will give anything a go. You can find more of my layouts on my Instagram, and you'll also find me designing for Hey Little Magpie and Silhouette UK.


Thanks so much for joining us Niki!!  Let's take a look at Niki's beautiful layout!

How gorgeous is the Gold on Niki's title using the Tall Type Alpha!!  And the diagonal design using the ampersand from the Everyday Essentials cut file is so fun!

We loved having you with us Niki!!  You can find more of Niki's gorgeous work by visiting her Blog, Being Scrappy.

Happy Together

Hi! Irit here with a project using some fun new favorites from The Cut Shoppe. Here's my finished project-


I used these two cut files-


The Oodles of Doodles is one of my favorite types of cut files. It has so many fun images, so many possibilities! I used the Silhouette software to make a custom design. I used Happy Together from the Friends Forever file, and welded it with some fun doodles. Here's how it looks on my screen-

I always cut extra shapes to fill out my 12x12. This way I have extras for future layouts.


I used the Happy Day kit by Felicity Jane for this layout. Love how all the soft colors look together, and the puffy stickers are just divine.

Stitching my title on my background helps everything look cohesive. I'm addicted to adding stitching to my layouts these days!


Check out the video tutorial I created-


Thanks for stopping by, and make sure you check these fantastic new files at The Cut Shoppe! Have a lovely day!

Most Favorite

Hello, it's Eunyoung here. Today I'll show you a heartful layout! :) 
There are somethings that I can't resist ; pink & white colors, floral patterns, grid design and a heart shape!!! I think they will never be boring for my crafty work. I found so lovely heart shape from The Oodles of Doodles cut file set.
 

 
 
 
This set includes 12 doodled images. I selected a heart shape from them and edited the original cutfile to be a heart group.



I used 6x6 paper pad for matching backside of heart cutfile. I usually 6x6 paper pad for small shape cutfile and 12x12 patterned paper for a big or a full cutfile. Because it's a the size of patterns on papers.


After adding patterned paper pieces on backside of hearts, I did machine stitching on each heart shape. I used a multi-pink colored thread. I added the heart cutfile in the center of the layout with pop-dots. It's for 3D effect. I embellished with puffy stickers, chipboard stickers and flower accents. I finished to splatter black color mist on white background and stamp a date.

 
 
I hope you like this and Thank you for stopping by.

One cut file set, three cards


Hi The Cut Shoppe fans! It's Flóra here with three pretty 6"x6" cards. I used the Love Struck cut file set and Pink Paislee - Paige Evans Take Me Away collection.



For the first card I cut out the heart with the sentiment and placed them on a sheet of vellum and patterned paper. In the right corner I used some pretty embellishment from the same collection.



For the second card I used the LOVE title. It's so totally cool. I love it. You can see this card has a totally different style.



The third card is made with the handwritten heart. I fussy cut flowers from Take Me Away patterned paper and decorated with them my card.


Visit The Cut Shoppe to purchase the Love Struck cut file set  and don't forget to show us your creations!
Thanks for stopping by!

POW

Hello friends! Kelly here today with another layout and process video! Today's layout features the Hero Up Cut File in two ways!


I started by cutting the POW starburst on a scrap piece of paper and used it as a mask. With the mask in place, I sprayed my white cardstock with Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine. Once the Color Shine was dry I added hand stitching and then cut the same starburst on a transparency. In the photo below you can really see the gold shine!


Next I added 2 small Instax photos. By printing the photos in a smaller format it helped hide the fact that they are dark, grainy, blurry phone photos. I added a cluster of embellishments that have been sitting in my stash for YEARS! Yay for using up product that has been collecting dust! There is a feeling of great accomplishment when that happens, right?! I also added messy stitching around the border of the layout for added texture and interest.


I've put together a video so you can see the process that also includes a Cricut Design Space Tutorial.



Don't forget to head to The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all the cut files that are available! Thanks for stopping by!
