Octobers | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here with you today sharing an Autumn-inspired layout in my traveler's notebook using the World of Octobers cut file.

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I sized the cut file to fit on my TN page.  I cut the file using a wood grain patterned paper from my stash.  I used some papers from the Fancy Pants Golden Days collection to cut out the word "Octobers" and the leaf image.  I then backed the cut file with another colorful patterned paper from this same collection.

I stamped some Autumn phrases at the top and bottom of the page for added interest and just because stamping is really fun!

For the opposite page, I printed a photo to about 4.25" x 8.25" to fill the entire page.  I love using large photos in my TN!  

I did some stamping on patterned paper, a stamped tag for my journaling, and added a sentiment die cut and a puffy heart sticker.  

I hope you have been inspired to create a project today.  There are so many cut files available at The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that can be used for a variety of projects!

you are my sunshine | orange gearle

Hi! Orange Gearle here with a layout using the Heart Breaker cut file from The Cut Shoppe. Here is my layout:

This is a great cut file -- and it happens to be free (and available here)! 

So my goal with this layout was to create something that was feminine and pretty -- contrasting the photo of my daughter as BATMAN. I think it worked!

Because the cut file is so pretty and pretty big, I didn't really need to add too many things as far as embellishments. I stuck with mostly hearts and butterflies -- but I threw in a few fussy cut flowers for good measure.

My background paper and the fussy cut flowers are from Amy Tangerine. The ephemera and chipboard are from Maggie Holmes. 

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

Thanks so much for checking it out! See you again soon! XO o.g.

All You Need Is Ice Cream TN Spread | Donna Espiritu

Hello, loves! Donna here with a TN layout using one of the cut files in the Snack Attack set

I like how this turned out, soft and yet colorful in a way.

Using the Silhouette Cameo machine, I cut the file with a white cardstock and backed it with some colorful papers in the Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories. I covered one page with pattern paper and the other side plain.

I stamped and splattered using different colors to mimic colorful sprinkles I did this to both pages.

I opted to mat/layer the photo with different pattern papers instead of covering the entire page. Then I used stickers, die cuts and some fussy cut pieces to embellish the pages.

I hope this inspired you to create something today. See you in my next post :) 

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy crafting,

World of Octobers with Neftali Zambrano

Welcome back Cut Shoppe friends! It is Neftali back again hoping you are all having a lovely and relaxing Saturday. I am sharing another fun layout today but finally switching gears from Summer to Fall, because we’re already mid month in September. 

Can you even believe that? Time just flies, but good thing the weather is cooling down and all those crispy fall feels are coming back. Which is why today I am sharing a fun Fall themed layout using the “World of October’s” cut file.

This is such a gorgeous cut file with such a fun Falsaying, I knew I had to make it center stage on my layout. 

I cut it out on some pretty patterned paper form the Auburn Lane collection. I used the negative part of the cut file to place it just as it is cut, above a fun pumpkin photo from last year’s Pumpkin patch trip. 

Here it is:

I used some Prima die cuts, leaves from the Amber Moon collection. 

Plus the 3D flowers from the Auburn Lane collection to create three fun layered clusters around the page. 

To add some more interest to an otherwise plain white sheet, I added some orange and black splatters and a few gold 3D drops. 

My final touch was to go around each word with a thin liner black marker to make the title pop just a bit. 

Such a beautiful saying for such a classic pumpkin photo. I’m just ready for pumpkin season, y’all! I hope you are too, and that you have found some inspiration through this layout. 

I will be back one more time later this month to share a final dose of scrappy inspiration as a Design Team member. Thanks for stopping by friends! x

Simple Halloween Mixed Media Layout | Helen Gullett

Hello everyone... Helen is here with a simple Halloween mixed media scrapbook layout. On my layout today, I use the Wicked Fun cutting file and the Road Trip Printable.

On the background 12x12 cardstock, I sprayed the yellow Marabu Art Spray. I let it dry on the side while I work on the cutting.

I used the spider web and title from the Wicked Fun cutting file on this layout. I enlarged the spider web to fit on the background cardstock. Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut it with black cardstock and then I added some of the Shimmer Creative Medium for extra glitter and sprakle on the web. It dried pretty quick. After that, I added the spider web on the base cardstock with adhesive glue.

I printed and cut the tag from the Road Trip Printable. I wrote the date and glued the tag behind the photo. Then, I added them on top of the spider web with adhesive glue.

I cut out the sentiment with yellow and black cardstocks and stacked them together to get the shadow effect on the die cuts. I also added some of the Shimmer Creative Medium on the word "First" for the shimmer and sparkle.  And then, I added both die cut words on the page using adhesive glue.

I am so happy that I am making progress with finishing my daughter's baby album.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day...

Love This by Jill

Hello!  Now that it's getting a teensy bit more Fall-like outside, I'm going to just go ahead and go full-on Fall and make all the beautiful autumn pages that I love so much!  My layout today features the All About Fall background cut file from The Cut Shoppe's Etsy store.

I started this layout by sizing the 12 x 12 file to about 9.9 x 9.9 using my Silhouette software.  I cut the leaves from a pale rust colored paper with the intention of backing the open spots with coordinating paper, but once I laid the cut onto the black and white background paper, I liked the simplicity of the colors without adding in additional papers behind the open leaves.

My photo is about 4 x 4 inches and I layered it over some vintage book pages mixed with a mustard envelope.  Inside the envelope is a 3 x 4 card with a patterned label.  I used a stapler to attach the label, then repeated the stapled elements with a speech bubble right on the photo.

I layered in more elements in coordinating colors, without covering up too much of the All About Fall cut file.

Thanks for checking out my newest layout for The Cut Shoppe!

#ForeverTogether | Shannon Morgan

Good morning! Shannon here, sharing a layout about the beautiful girls pictured below. They are amazing, hilarious and can often be found together. I used a few files for this layout: The Rough Waters, The Friends Forever & Boho Chic files.

Did you know that you can use part of a file? I did that with the Boho Chic file. Here's a close up of as always, so you can see these awesome files:

Thanks for letting me share with you! Have a great day!
