lake life | orange gearle

Hi! Orange Gearle here with a TN layout using the Campfire Stories cut file. Here is a look at my project:

Here is a look at the full cut file:

I used just the circle "lake life" part of this file and backed it with a pink patterned paper from Maggie Holmes Sunny Days collection. I also added a green heart sticker from the cardstock sticker sheet in the same collection.

I used papers mostly from the 6x8 paper pad because I like the smaller patterns for the TN size. 

I typed my journaling directly on the white card stock background using my type writer. I added a few more stickers to complete the layout.  Here are a few more close ups. 

I made a video of my process if that is something that suits your fancy!  

Thank you so much for stopping by -- see you again soon! XO o.g.

Fun Times | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here with you today sharing a layout in my traveler's notebook.  I used the And Then cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

I used mainly the Crate Paper All Heart collection for this layout.  To begin my page, I sized the cut file to about 5 inches wide, so it would be a little larger than one side of my traveler's notebook.  I then cut it out using patterned paper, and did an offset using white cardstock to back the file.  I love using larger cut files in my traveler's notebook.

Next, I stamped several sentiments down the side of the page using a Kellie Stamps stamp set and different ink colors.

I chose a photo of my sister and I taken earlier this year.  I used a tag and frame from the collection to layer behind the photo.  To embellish around the photo, I used puffy stickers and chipboard stickers.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you are inspired to use a cut file from The Cut Shoppe on your next project!

"Away We Go" with Kira

Hey there!  It's Kira and I am back with another 8.5x11 scrapbook layout featuring a cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  Here's a look at my layout:

I am absolutely smitten with the Away We Go cut file.  I cut it out on white cardstock sized at 8" wide.  I just treated myself to some new goodies at Joanns, so I used the new Jen Hadfield collection on this layout.

I knew this cut file would be perfect for this photo I snapped of my oldest son on our latest trip to the zoo.  He's totally map obsessed at the moment and I love how perfectly he was holding it in this photo.

I backed parts of the cut file with some patterned paper, but left some of it open to show the background paper below.

I finished it off by embellishing with die cuts and stickers from the collection.  I typed up my journaling and added it to the lower left corner.

Thanks for stopping by!

Summer is Coming | Iris Fox

Hello scrappy friends, Iris here to share 9x12 layout using the recently released "Summer is Coming" cut file.

I'm not usually a summer fan, so how perfect for me is this cut file that riffs off of the Game of Thrones warning?!  I decided I could use it to make a summer bucket list of some of the things I'm actually looking forward to this summer!

I started off by sizing the cut file to 5 inches wide and cutting my photos into circles. The smaller ones that are images of show posters I cut at 1.5 inches and 2 inches. The 2 family photos are 3 inches. After deciding where they would go, I lightly marked their place with pencil, then used liquid watercolors by Avery Elle to draw colorful circles around the perimeters. On top of those I added coordinating sentiments by curving the stamps on the acrylic block and stamping them all around the circles.

I embellished with circular die-cuts and puffy stickers.

For the title, I backed it with a printed acetate piece from Pretty Little Studio. Originally my thought was to have some mixed media under the acetate, but when I backed it, I liked the clean look. Under the title I did more stamping and added this year in tile stickers.

I printed a list of each activity and added the corresponding number to each photo.  For more color, I added patterned paper borders at the top and bottom, and stapled more embellishment at the seams to tie them together.

I'm so glad I was inspired to document things I'm looking forward to this summer as a form of gratitude thanks to The Cut Shoppe's "Summer is Coming" cut file!

You can find the process video here on my Youtube Channel.  Thanks for stopping by!

Away We Go | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe fans,

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the gorgeous Away We Go cut file.

Globe cut files are one of my favourite to work with so when I saw the Away We Go cut file I just knew I had to use it! I took out one of the older Paige collections and picked some of the papers from the 6' x 6' paper pad from the Fancy Free collection.
Away We Go

I decided to use one of the 12' x 12' papers as my background paper from the Fancy Free collection. I love how the white cut file pops against the green background paper. I machine stitched around the main circle of the globe once I had glued it down. 

I placed my photo down in the bottom right section of my page and placed the embellishments around the photo. I love how the different patterned papers look behind the cut file.

This cut file is one that you can use any collection with, I love it when the cut files are so versatile like that! All the files in The Cut Shoppe store are suited to any collection so make sure to check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by The Cut Shoppe blog today!

Make the Grade | Kelly Janes

Hey there, friends! Kelly back today with a new layout using the Haphazard Hexagons Cut File.

I started with a white cardstock background and used a stencil to create the mixed media background.

I cut the Haphazard Hexagons on a piece of green patterned paper and backed them with various school themed patterned papers.

I then added multiple embellishments around the layout following the school theme.

The good stuff

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO to share using the Floral Wreath cut file and the Vicki Boutin Kaleidoscope collection.

I love cutting my cut files in white cardstock.  You can't go wrong with white, it matches everything.   I sometimes cut a lot of them in advance and take them to crops with me.  I love the bright colors in this collection and thought it would be fun to back these flowers with a bold stripped pattern.

I also added a bit of stitching to a few flower centers, just for fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
