this is Jennifer with a new layout for The Cut Shoppe!
For this project I used three different cutfiles. First: The Arrowheads 12x12 cutfile for my background:
For my title I used the Camp Out cutfile:
And last but not least, the Happy Clouds cutfile:
In December I took this amazing photo of the sunset over Hamburg and I've wanted to scrap it in it's wonderfully colorful awesomeness for weeks now but I lacked inspiration. I love all the colors but I didn't really know how to combine it with patterned papers or embellishments. But when I went through my stash I found a summer collection from last year that matched the colors in my photo perfectly. It was pretty much a match made in heaven.
I felt like a full 12x12 background using Arrowheads would be a bit much so I only traced half of it with my cutting software. Which turned out to be a really good idea because I didn't have a lot left of the ombre paper I used to back the cutfile.
Because I wanted to keep the focus on my picture and title I cut the cloud from Happy Clouds out of white cardstock for a white-on-white effect. I love how soft the background looks and how my picture just pops right of the page.
I cut my title from a scrap of starry night patterned paper I had laying around. For a bit of a layering effect I glued down some clouds first and added the words on top of it. A few sprinkles of gold shimmer mist to round everything out and my layout was done.
That's it for today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great week.
