New Cut Files | Love Today

Happy Thursday Cut Shoppe fans!  We have some awesome new cut files for you in the Shop!  There are so many possibilities with our cut file designs, and I love finding unique ways to use them.  On today's layout, I used the new Cozy Quilt cut file and a cropping technique in Silhouette Studio.

I didn't get a chance to film the full process for today's layout, but I do have a quick tutorial to go along with it, showing how I used the crop feature in Silhouette Studio, with the Cozy Quilt cut file.

You could try this technique with other shapes, like a circle, star or even some large letters to get a unique look on your layout.

I originally started this layout, with the idea of using the frames from the Instant Camera cut file in a grid design.  Once I started working on it, I changed direction.  Since I had the frames already cut I wanted to incorporate at least one onto the layout, so I tucked the XO frame under my photo for extra layering.

I was really happy with the way this layout turned out, and it was my first time using the new Lovely Day collection by Dear Lizzy.  Isn't that background paper amazing??!!  I used the 6x6 paper pad to fill in some of the Cozy Quilt sections of the heart, but decided not to fill in every space, so some of the gorgeous background paper could show through.

I hope you've been inspired with some new ideas and techniques today!  You can visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store to pick up the newest cut files and check out all of the other available designs.
