Love That Smile

Hi Everyone! Michelle here today with my newest layout share featuring one of The Cut Shoppe's NEW cut files . I love the finished look of this layout, and hope you do too!

I've used the Sweet Talker file, and sized it to fit the page so that there was white space all around the edges, then backed random hearts with pretty papers from the Make a Wish collection from Cocoa Vanilla Studio.

Here's some close ups 

You can see here that I've sewn through the hearts before popping the entire cut file piece up using some foam tape, giving the page an extra layer of dimension and texture

That's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time, Happy Scrapping!

P.s Here's another look at all the glorious Cut files just released this week in The Cut Shoppe Store

Hello scrappy friends! It's Zinia here with a layout I create using some of the recently released cut files from the Cut Shoppe Etsy Store.

The cut file I'm talking about is called Flower Delivery. It's definitely my new most favorite design and I have a feeling I'll keep using it in a bunch of layouts.

I'm always obsessed with floral designs but this cut file has something special about it. I love how you can layer the different designs on top of each other to create unique effects.

For this layout, I decided to work with my December Hip Kits and use a colorful pattern paper from the Paige Evan's "Take me Away" collection. I cut out a bunch of flowers from that paper and then I cut some of the solid images out of vellum.

I used my watercolors to paint the vellum pieces and once they were dry, I stapled them with the designs I cut out of the pattern paper.

I covered the top of my page with another pattern paper and then using the same colors, I let some of my watercolors drip down on the white part of the page. Once it was dry, I scattered my layered flowers on the border between the two papers to create a dimensional bouquet. 

I stuck my photo on the upper part of the page and embellished it a little with a few gold accents and a couple of phrase die cuts.

So that was it! I really hope you enjoyed this and got inspired to create a beautiful paper bouquet on your layouts too. Until next time, happy scrapping.

Picture Perfect

Hi everyone! Mandy here today to share a layout that I created using one of the new cut files available from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store!

I absolutely love this photo of my youngest daughter with my nephew! It's so sweet how much they adore one another!

This is the new 'Bless Your Heart' cut file set that I used on my layout...

No automatic alt text available.

I used the heart that has the word 'love' repeated. I cut it from white cardstock and then backed three of the words with light grey patterned paper. I then added small pieces of foam tape to the back of the heart to give it some extra dimension.

Here are some closeups of my layout...

I created a cluster on the top left hand corner of the heart using some die cuts. I tucked some in peeking out from underneath the heart and added others on top. All of the patterned papers and embellishments on my layout are from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio 'Love Always' collection.

I created another little cluster on the bottom left hand corner of my photo using some more die-cuts, chipboard, and a paper bloom.

I added one more cluster on the top right hand corner of the photo to complete the visual triangle. This one includes another floral die cut and a flair button.

I finished the layout off with some journaling and enamel dots.

Thanks for joining me on the blog today! Why don't you head on over to The Cut Shoppe etsy store to check out all of the new cut files that were added this week!

New Cut Files | Just My Type

Hi everyone!  The days are already flying by and Valentine's Day will be here before we know it!  So to get you in a lovey dovey mood, we've got four new love themed Cut File sets for you this week!  These are very verstatile, because they can be used for Valentine's themed layouts or for your everyday layouts.  I used two of the new sets, Bless Your Heart and Sweet Sentiments, on the layout I'm sharing today.

I wanted to create a large title on my layout from the Sweet Sentiments set.  I love the typewriter look of "Just My Type", so I cut it in the center of White cardstock and then backed it with various patterned papers from the Oh Happy Life collection.  Then I cut 3 of the 4 hearts from the Bless Your Heart cut file set and placed them around the title.

I placed the photo in the open area, created by the title and the heart on the left hand side of the layout.  I used a few die cuts and stickers from the Oh Happy Life collection to finish the layout design.  And since I used a White cardstock background on this layout, I decided to finish it off with a splatter of Black Color Shine, diagonally on the page.

You can find both of these new cut files in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, as well as two other new designs.

Insta Love

Hi! Irit here sharing my newest project for the Cut Shoppe! I had lots of fun with this one. Here's the finished page-

Here are the cut files I used-

 I cut both files in white cardstock, and then used mist to add shine.

All the patterned papers and embellishments are from Felicity Jane kits.

I ended up actually covering the cute instax camera, but I love how the title pops above and below the photos!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check the Cut Shoppe for these lovely cut files and many many more!

Hello Snow!

 Hello everyone!

Nathalie here with a new project all about winter.   We are still amazed that Toronto got so much snow at once in the first week of December. We all love the fluffy white stuff, but nobody loves it as much as my baby (our Boston Terrier -Poochie-).  So i set out to document his glee using the Frosty Flakes, and the Wintry Mix cut files.

The Frosty Flakes cut file was perfect to create a background for the layout.  Since the layout's mat is patterned paper (not my usual white card stock),  i cut the background on white card stock, and backed the center of each snowflake with vellum.

For the title, one of the images from the Wintry Mix cut file, "Hello Snow", was cut on white cardstock.  I simply used my Cameo to perforate the edges of the image, and added an offset to the image (that gives that little white space around the image).  A little bit of metallic watercolor, and hand stitching complete the title.

Here are  few more close ups of the layout:

Don't forget to check the store for these and more cut files (there is always new releases available).   Whenever you use any of the store products, do not forget to use the tag @thecutshoppe when you share it on social media (we love Instagram).  Use the hash tag " #tcscutitout "  to enter your project in the month's Cut It Out challenge.  At the end of the month, one lucky entry will win a gift certificate to the store.

Remember, i am always a comment away, if you have any questions.
