Over the rainbow together | Sasha Biyanova

Hello, everyone!

It's Sasha here with my new layout using two cut files.

First of all I used Over the rainbow cut file. It's very spring, but I used it for winter photo))

I added pattern paper on the back of the cutted pieces and then not so many embellishments)

And I decided to use Tall Type Alpha to make my own title.

And put the same paper behind the letters.

Thank you for stopping by!
Happy crafting!

Colorful | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe friends!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a colorful and bright layout using one of the brand new cut file sets now in The Cut Shoppe store!

The Lucky Stars cut file below is a very versatile one to use for all kinds of different themed projects! You could also try cutting this out and then using the positive stars/pieces to create a fun look. 
Lucky Stars

I cut The Lucky Stars cut file out from white textured cardstock and then backed the cut file with one of the super colorful papers from the Fancy Free collection by Paige Evans. I love how all the stars have different colors and I did not have to back every single star with a different paper!!! The paper I chose did all the hard work for me! 

I kept the embellishing fairly simple so the photo and the stars could be featured the most! I chose a chipboard title for underneath the photo that went perfectly with the layout. I layered one of the tags from the Fancy Free collection underneath my photo and also added one of the wood tabs above the photo. I like how these embellishments draw some colour in to the photo.

The puffy stickers in this collection are also really cute, I added one of the stars and some of the crosses around the page. I tried to create a tone on tone look with the crosses. I love the cute buttons in this collection so I added one of the aqua ones to the right of my photo.

Make sure to check out The Cut Shoppe store for all the gorgeous cut file designs! There are so many gorgeous ones you definitely need in your life! 

Happy creating!

Wonderful Day | Erica Thompson

Hello! Erica here with you today sharing a layout using the Swirly & Twirly layout from The Cut Shoppe! You can find the cut file by clicking HERE!
I cut the file out of some white American Crafts cardstock and backed it with some papers from Rosie's Studio Arabesue Collection!

I added a lot of splatters to my background using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and some Black Heidi Swapp Color Shine.
I embellished with die cuts and puffy stickers from Rosie's Studio along with an epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio.
I love this photo that was taken on my younger brothers wedding day. I am the only girl with one older brother and two younger. I was very pregnant in this photo but we had a great time..swollen ankles and all!

Here is a look at my completed layout and my process video!  You can also check it out on YouTube HERE!

Floral Wreath Spring Inspiration | Amanda Baldwin

Hi TCS Friends! 

Amanda here, sharing a super pretty Spring layout with the gorgeous new Floral Wreath cut file!
Teamed with the beautiful and bright Cocoa Vanilla Studio Happiness collection, this layout is a floral dream!
Here's what I created,
"Happy Times"

Oh isn't this gor-jus?!!
The new Floral Wreath is simply stunning! 
I have cut the wreath in white cardstock, and backed it with two of the Happiness 6 x 8" Paper Pad papers. 
Here's a better look at the Floral Wreath......

LOVE!!!!! Absolute floral perfection!

Here's a closer view of my layout.....

To create soft dimension & interest to my wreath, I fold some of the flower petals upwards. I also embellish some of the flower centers with fussy cut butterflies, die cuts, sequins and even a flair button! 

So very pretty! The sequins are the 'Dragon Tales' mix from Spiegelmom Scraps, and they add just the right amount of sparkle to this girly page! 

So my photo isn't lost among all those bright & beautiful florals, I print it in black & white, and also mount it with a die cut frame. Perfect!

I layer my title, happy times, over the wreath too! 

And for finishing touches, I surround the Floral Wreath with hearts and more of those gorgeous sequins! 
And there you have it! 
Spring perfection! 

I hope you feel inspired to use this cut file in your creating! 

Thanks so much for visiting,

NEW CUT FILES | San Antonio Snow Cones

Raise your hand if you're ready for Spring!!  I think we are all over winter, and we've got some great NEW Cut Files in The Cut Shoppe store that will have you looking forward to warmer and brighter days!  It's all about sun, stars and rainbows!!  I'm sharing a layout, using the awesome Over the Rainbow Cut File.  Who can resist rainbows??!!

I definitely wanted the Over the Rainbow Cut File to have some rainbow colors, so I used the Pinkfresh Studio Out & About collection.  Plus, my photo was from a recent vacation, so the collection worked great with it too!  I cut the design from White card stock and used patterned papers from the 6x6 paper pad to back each piece.  Then I hand stitched around each part of the rainbow with coordinating embroidery floss colors.

I placed my photo below the Over the Rainbow cut file and layered one of the fun tags from the Out & About collection behind it.  Then I started sorting through all of the embellishments, because I wanted to create an embellishment border under the rainbow.  This created a fun look across the layout and covered the seam between the patterned paper on the top of my layout and the White card stock on the bottom of the layout.

For my title, I decided to use the small puffy alpha stickers from the Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Day collection.  The colors didn't exactly match the Out & About collection, but I loved the size of them, so I went with it.  To finish the layout, I cut a strip of paper from the New Places patterned paper.  It has a fun rainbow pattern, so of course it looked great with all of the colors on my layout.  Then I added some machine stitching to the paper strip to give the bottom of the layout a little bit more texture.

You can see how everything on this layout came together in my NEW Process Video.  If you're not following me, you can visit my Channel and become a new Subscriber!

Hello There | Kelly Janes

Hey friends! Kelly here today to share a new layout using the All the Angles Cut File.

I cut the cut file on white cardstock and then backed the open areas with a bright and bold patterned paper. This is one of the things I love about a background cut file...It's the perfect way to use up some of those bold patterned papers we have in our stash!

After I had the cut file backed, I added machine stitching around the cut file. I then moved onto embellishing. I used a majority of fussy cut flowers along with a couple die cuts and a few stickers for added pops of color.

Background cut files are some of my absolute faves! There are so many great options in The Cut Shoppe Store so be sure to check it out!

Happiness | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here today sharing a traveler's notebook layout using the Hexagon Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

Heart cut files are my favorite ones to use on layouts.  When I saw this geometric heart, I couldn't resist using it in a big way on my spread.

For this layout, I used mainly the Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Day collection.  I began the page by using my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the file using white cardstock.  I backed the cut file with some pink striped patterned paper from my stash. 

Next, I layered some patterned paper behind my photo, and added some ephemera pieces and puffy stickers around the photo.  I also fussy cut a few elements from the patterned papers in this collection and added them to the page.  A large "happiness" puffy sticker serves as my title.

I added a small embellishment cluster at the top of the other page, using more ephemera pieces and puffy stickers.  How cute is that little pinwheel?!?  I wish there had been more of those in the pack!

At this point, I felt like the page was missing something, so I tore the background paper in two spots and added some patterned paper behind the torn areas.  To finish off the spread, I splattered some white acrylic paint.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you will try using a large cut file on your next project!
