Pretty Little Studio and The Cut Shoppe Product Swap - DECEMBER JOY

Welcome to the second day of the Pretty Little Studio and The Cut Shoppe product swap.

Nathalie here with a new layout using a few images from the Tinsel Town, and the Misc. Mistletoe cut files along with the new Tinsel Town collection by Ashley Horton for Pretty Little Studio.

The background of the layout was created by using the Tinsel Town cut file.  I simply welded the star shapes in rows forming a triangle shape.   Then I used the tree  outline image of the cut file and welded the pieces together.  Once the cut-out was created, i used the papers from Pretty Little Studio's  Tinsel Town collection to back all the stars.  A large vellum triangle was glued behind the entire image, and to add more interest, I simply stitched along the edge of the tree with gold embroidery floss.   The large acrylic star comes from the collection's Twinkle Accents.

The beautiful papers, and embelishments of the  Pretty Little Studio's Tinsel Town collection were perfect to frame the layout, and the picture of my little nephew trying to touch the Christmas tree star.  Here are some close ups:

For the title of this piece, I went into the Cut Shoppe's blog for one of last year's free cut files,  Misc. Mistletoe.  I cut the words from the Gift Wrap paper from the Tinsel Town collection.  An offset to the words was also created on the software, and cut on white card stock.  I simply glued the words to the offset, this brings out the title when added to the project.

Be sure to check the Pretty Little Studio to see what their DT is creating with our cut files, and to pick the beautiful collections they have in the PLS store, including Ashley Horton's Holiday collection, Tinsel Town.
