It's the New Year, and that means plenty of new cut file designs and inspiration are coming your way! Today, we've got our first cut file sets of 2018. These four sets include some great designs for your upcoming Valentine/love themed layouts, or they work great for everyday layouts too. I'm here to share a Disney layout with you, using the Inner Circle background cut file and the Love Ya cut file.
I wanted to cut the Inner Circle background from a subtle patterned paper, so I could use it as a base layer over White card stock. Next, I cut four of the "XO" phrases from the Love Ya cut file. I placed them in a grid design over the Inner Circle background. I loved the look of the pops of color, layered over the softer color in the background.
I placed the photo in the center of the grid design, so your eye would be drawn right to it. I used some of the Puffy Sticker Words from the Crate Paper Good Vibes collection as the title of the layout. Best Friends went great with the photo of the kiddos and Chip & Dale, from our recent Disney vacation.
A few more embellishments from the Good Vibes collection, finished off the layout. I kept everything near the photo, so the background design could still stand out. And I had fun working in the cactus embellishments. It's great to use embellishments like this on everyday layouts, because they may not work when you are using certain photos or creating a certain theme for your layout.
You'll find these new cut files in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, along with two other new designs, and all of your other favorite cut files! If you got a new Die Cut Machine for Christmas, now is a great time to visit the shop and check out all of our awesome designs!!
