Neat & Tangled and The Cut Shoppe Inspiration Week Day 4!

I hope you have all enjoyed our Inspiration Week with Neat & Tangled!  I know I have!  So far, both Teams have shared some amazing inspiration, and it's not over yet!!  Today, I have two layouts to share with you, and tomorrow Missy and Allie will be sharing their projects with you.  And make sure you visit the Neat & Tangled Blog to see what their Design Team has been creating with stamps from the Neat & Tangled Shop and the cut files from The Cut Shoppe!

And since it's Thursday, we have some new cut file sets in The Cut Shoppe today!  Make sure you read through the post, to see all of the new sets!

Life Is Good by Ashley Horton:

Ashley says:  I wanted to use the new Spinning Spirals 12x12 background cut file on my first layout.  I sized the cut file down a bit and then layered it over Gelatos that I added to the Pinkfresh Studio background paper.  Once the Spinning Spirals background was in place, I added machine stitching to adhere it to the layout.  Then I used some of the fun phrases from the You + Me stamp set from the Neat & Tangled shop, to layer along the edge of my photo.  I stamped the phrases in different colors on White cardstock, cut them out, and then used the same color stamp pad to add color around the edges.  I also wanted to add some of the cute heart stamps from the set, so I stamped them on one of the Pinkfresh Studio patterned papers and fussy cut them.  Then I just scattered them onto the layout.

Big Smiles by Ashley Horton:


Ashley says:  On this layout, I used cut files from the Sweet Hearts cut file and the Target Practice cut file.  I cut the cute clouds from White cardstock and layered them over the White background to create a soft look.  The arrow was cut from a cork patterned paper included in the Notes & Things collection from Crate Paper.  And I worked with the Scrap Circles stamp set on this layout.  I stamped the Love circle in Teal ink onto White Cardstock.  Then I fussy cut around each of the circles, added them to my layout, and then added hand stitching around the edges of each circle.  I also used the word Love from the You + Me stamp set and stamped it over the watercolors in the background.
