Pink Pea Coat

I have a confession to make...I really love background cut files!  They are one of my favorites to use, when I am creating a layout.  So when you visit The Cut Shoppe, you will probably notice a "couple" or 50 background cut files!!  :)  I couldn't wait to try out the newest background, Totally Triangles, with lots of overlapping skinny Triangles.  So it is making a debut on the new layout I'm sharing today!

I cut the Totally Triangles 12x12 background on White cardstock, and wanted to layer it over a floral patterned paper included in the Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection.  Then I chose four other patterns from the 6x6 Serendipity Paper Pad, hand cut them into skinny triangles, and layered them randomly under the background cut file.  Once I had the background cut file in place, I sprinkled it with some Primrose Color Shine, and used a Pink Gelato to draw over a few of the areas and smudged the color with my finger.  I kept my photo, title, and embellishments clustered together, to draw attention to my photo, since I went with such a busy background.  I also incorporated the new Candid Camera cut file, and cut the word Hello to add to my page.  These words all have a brush script look and can be used in lots of fun ways on your projects!

You can stop by the Shop today, and check out all three new cut file sets!  I haven't had a chance to use the Let Them Eat Pie set, but I can't wait to play with that one!  And I've seen what some of the DT Ladies have done with it, so look for their layouts coming soon!
