The cut file I used for the page below seems to be a design team favorite, as it's been featured several times in the last month. What's really cool is the uniqueness of each layout. The hearts have been used with sketch pens, stitching, watercolor and more. Today's hearts are rainbow-hued! Here it is, the Half Hearted 12X12 cut file from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store:

For the past four years we've made numerous trips to Tuscaloosa while my middle son was enrolled at the University of Alabama. One of our favorite eateries had a wall full of painted guitars, including a striking one emblazoned with the words "Sweet Home Alabama". It inspired the colorful layout below: 

Several colorful embellishments were added to the hearts in two separate clusters, one at the upper right:

 And one at the bottom left:

I loved leafing through my patterned paper stash for colorful scraps with which to back the heart halves. Equally fun was sifting through my embellishments for coordinating bits and pieces. It was a bit of work to gather and put this page together, but totally worth the time and effort!

Thanks for visiting The Cut Shoppe blog today. Until next time,
