The Cut Shoppe & Pretty Little Studio Product Swap + GIVEAWAY!

Welcome to the first day of our week-long product swap with Pretty Little Studio!  We are so excited to bring you some holiday inspiration from both teams, so make sure you visit both Blogs each day!  

I am kicking things off on The Cut Shoppe Blog with two layouts, I created with my new Tinsel Town collection and the Tree Farm cut file and 'Tis the Season cut file.  Pretty Little Studio has three adorable Christmas collections and you can check all of them out in the PLS Shop, and TCS always has your hook up for awesome Christmas cut files!


I can't resist a quirky Christmas tree, so I cut two of the designs from the Tree Farm cut file and backed them with patterned papers from the Tinsel Town collection.  I spread the trees out across the layout, and placed my photos in between.  The Coal Alphas were perfect for adding a great contrast for my title, and I placed several embellishments from the collection near my photos.  I had the idea to add the Vellum Tape along the top and bottom edges of the layout.  I liked the result of the varying widths, and it also created a fun look for the Gift Flags Cut Aparts at the top of the layout.


For my second layout, I wanted to use one of the titles from the 'Tis the Season cut file set.  I loved that the 'Tis the Season to Sparkle title was shaped slightly in the form of a Christmas Tree.  I cut it toward the top portion of my paper and used my photo as the base of the "Christmas tree".  I wanted to create a garland look also, so I placed several of the Tinsel Town embellishments along the bottom of the title.  And since the title was all about sparkle, I finished with some splattered Gold Color Shine.

You're not going to want to miss out any this week, so check back tomorrow for more inspiration and don't forget to head over to the Pretty Little Studio Blog!
