Dream Come True

It's Thursday, and that means new cut file sets are available in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store!  We've got some awesome designs for you this week, and I used two of the new sets on my layout.  And I'm pretty excited about this layout because of the photo!!  It's a photo of my FIRST EVER physical product, created from my own designs!!  So obviously, I had to document the photo right away!

The photo on the layout is one I snapped of my Clear Stamp set, that is part of the OAKLEY AVENUE Fall collection with Pretty Little Studio.  When I received the stamp set in the mail, I had to take it out right away and try it out.  And, of course, I had to take a photo to share on my social media!!

When I started this layout, I knew I wanted to use the new Strings Attached cut file set.  I decided to go with the circle design, because I thought it would be perfect for a shaped photo.  I used the no cut feature on the outside circle of the cut file, so I could go back and draw it with the Sketch Pens.

I also used the new Brush Up Alpha for the title of my layout.  I selected the letters for the title, Dream Come True and arranged them around the Strings Attached circle.  Once I had all of the cut files the way I wanted them, I sent it to the Cameo to be cut.  Then I stitched around the circle drawn by the Sketch Pen with 4 different colors of embroidery floss.
I decided to use the Amy Tangerine Oh Happy Life collection for the layout, because it went with the colors in my photo...and because I didn't have the Oakley Avenue collection to work with...yet!!  :)  But I loved that the Oh Happy Life had the Reds, Yellows and Oranges, which are great fall colors.  And the cute owl from the Ephemera pack was a perfect embellishment, since my stamp set goes with a fall collection.  Since I had a large photo and wanted to feature two cut files, I kept the embellishing simple with two embellishment clusters.

Both of these cut file sets are now available for purchase in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, along with a new Cut & Fold design, Cheeky Chevrons!  And you can still save 25% off of your purchase through the end of this month, with the Discount Code TCSCS25!
