Love You & Me

It's Thursday and that means new cut files have been added to The Cut Shoppe, and I have a new layout to share with you!  This week I used the Lots of Love background cut file, and instead of cutting the background, I used my sketch pens to create a fun look for my page.

I used the Sketch Pens to draw the Love background, and once it was finished, I cut several of the words from patterned paper and adhered them in place of the written words.  You could do a lot of different things with this cut file, and I think I will definitely be using it on more layouts!!

You can find the Lots of Love background (available in 8.5x11 and 12x12 format) in The Cut Shoppe, along with 4 other new cut file sets!  Stop by and take a peek!

And don't forget that the Design Team Call ends on Monday, June 30th!  So make sure you get your applications sent in to!

Supplies:  Lots of Love Cut File:  The Cut Shoppe; Die Cut Machine & Sketch Pens:  Silhouette; Patterned Paper, Tags, & Wood Veneers:  Chic Tags; Color Shine:  Heidi Swapp; Arrow Clip, Flair Buttons & Wood Veneers:  Citrus Twist

Pie Hearts | With All My Heart

I'm here today, with the first official layout post on The Cut Shoppe Blog!  Every Thursday new cut files are added to the Shop, and I wanted to share a layout with you, using the new Pie Hearts cut file that can be found in The Cut Shoppe today!

I love the Pie Hearts cut file, because it gives you some fun options for adding different patterned papers.  And this cut file would be great to use, with those little scraps that you have left over from collections, that you just can't bring yourself to throw away!  I used the Everyday Moments collection from Elle's Studio and used a different patterned paper in each section of the heart.  Then I added some of the cute flair buttons from A Flair for Buttons to the center of each heart.  This cut file has 3 different shape options:  the welded heart trio from my layout, the individual heart from this file and a third heart in a different shape.

You can find several new cut files added to The Cut Shoppe today, so stop by and see what's new!  And don't forget about our first Design Team Call!  The call will remain open until June 30th and is open to US and International Designers!
