Hello Fall | Tarrah McLean

Hi there Cut Shoppe friends,

It's Tarrah McLean back with you today to share a Fall themed layout!

I used pieces from 2 different cut file sets to add to my layout today. I loved the Fall banner from the Feeling Fallish set and cut it out from the red paper in the Pretty Little Studio Oakley Avenue collection. I also used the top Autumn leaf from the Autumn Acres set and cut it out from the plaid paper from the same collection.

The Oakley Avenue collection by Pretty Little Studio was designed by Ashley Horton, the owner of The Cut Shoppe. Its a really cute collection for Fall projects and I love pulling it out to use.

I love how the leaves turned out using the plaid paper! I machine stitched through them for some added texture and detail. I added some wood veneer leaves from my stash and I like how they blend in and add to the Fall theme.  

I love how the Fall banner looks in the red paper, it really pops off the page and makes a statement against the white paper. By adding the 'Hello' from the Oakley Avenue collection above it, it made the perfect title for my page! 

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Happy creating!

New Cut Files | Feeling Fallish

I don't know about you guys, but I am over summer!  I was pretty much over it after the first two weeks!  HA!  Fall has always been my favorite time of the year, so I am excited to have some new fall designs in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store.  I used two of the designs from the Finally Fall cut file on the layout I'm sharing today.

It's been a while, since I've worked with a collection pack, but I picked up the Fall Breeze collection from PhotoPlayPaper.  I knew I wanted to use it for some upcoming fall layouts in my Traveler's Notebook, but it was perfect for this layout too.  Believe it or not, this layout is made with only patterned paper and stickers!!  That's very unusual for me, but I loved the end result.

I started my layout by repeating the leaf design in Silhouette Studio and cutting it from White card stock.  Then I backed each shape with one of the patterned papers from the Fall Breeze collection.  Before adding anything else to my layout, I ran it through my sewing machine to stitch along the center of each of the leaves.  Next, I cut the title and decided to back it with White card stock, so it would stand out from everything else going on in the background.

Once I had the title where I wanted it, I added my photo.  This photo is from a trip we took to Nashville last October.  I probably won't get many more pumpkin patch photo shoots out of these kids, since our youngest is 9.  :)  The embellishing on the layout was quick and easy.  I chose a mix of stickers from the collection sticker sheet and placed them around the photo.  To add some variety to the stickers, I adhered some to the layout with pop dots and I also curled and roughed up the edges of the stickers.

I hope you've found some inspiration today for your upcoming fall projects!  And this layout proves that you don't have to over-think things with choosing your embellishments.  Sometimes an awesome cut file and stickers are all you need! 

You can visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store to pick up the Finally Fall cut, and check out our other three designs that are now available!

Octobers | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here with you today sharing an Autumn-inspired layout in my traveler's notebook using the World of Octobers cut file.

Using my Silhouette Cameo, I sized the cut file to fit on my TN page.  I cut the file using a wood grain patterned paper from my stash.  I used some papers from the Fancy Pants Golden Days collection to cut out the word "Octobers" and the leaf image.  I then backed the cut file with another colorful patterned paper from this same collection.

I stamped some Autumn phrases at the top and bottom of the page for added interest and just because stamping is really fun!

For the opposite page, I printed a photo to about 4.25" x 8.25" to fill the entire page.  I love using large photos in my TN!  

I did some stamping on patterned paper, a stamped tag for my journaling, and added a sentiment die cut and a puffy heart sticker.  

I hope you have been inspired to create a project today.  There are so many cut files available at The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that can be used for a variety of projects!

you are my sunshine | orange gearle

Hi! Orange Gearle here with a layout using the Heart Breaker cut file from The Cut Shoppe. Here is my layout:

This is a great cut file -- and it happens to be free (and available here)! 

So my goal with this layout was to create something that was feminine and pretty -- contrasting the photo of my daughter as BATMAN. I think it worked!

Because the cut file is so pretty and pretty big, I didn't really need to add too many things as far as embellishments. I stuck with mostly hearts and butterflies -- but I threw in a few fussy cut flowers for good measure.

My background paper and the fussy cut flowers are from Amy Tangerine. The ephemera and chipboard are from Maggie Holmes. 

I made a video of my process, if that suits your fancy!

Thanks so much for checking it out! See you again soon! XO o.g.

All You Need Is Ice Cream TN Spread | Donna Espiritu

Hello, loves! Donna here with a TN layout using one of the cut files in the Snack Attack set

I like how this turned out, soft and yet colorful in a way.

Using the Silhouette Cameo machine, I cut the file with a white cardstock and backed it with some colorful papers in the Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories. I covered one page with pattern paper and the other side plain.

I stamped and splattered using different colors to mimic colorful sprinkles I did this to both pages.

I opted to mat/layer the photo with different pattern papers instead of covering the entire page. Then I used stickers, die cuts and some fussy cut pieces to embellish the pages.

I hope this inspired you to create something today. See you in my next post :) 

Thanks for dropping by!
Happy crafting,

World of Octobers with Neftali Zambrano

Welcome back Cut Shoppe friends! It is Neftali back again hoping you are all having a lovely and relaxing Saturday. I am sharing another fun layout today but finally switching gears from Summer to Fall, because we’re already mid month in September. 

Can you even believe that? Time just flies, but good thing the weather is cooling down and all those crispy fall feels are coming back. Which is why today I am sharing a fun Fall themed layout using the “World of October’s” cut file.

This is such a gorgeous cut file with such a fun Falsaying, I knew I had to make it center stage on my layout. 

I cut it out on some pretty patterned paper form the Auburn Lane collection. I used the negative part of the cut file to place it just as it is cut, above a fun pumpkin photo from last year’s Pumpkin patch trip. 

Here it is:

I used some Prima die cuts, leaves from the Amber Moon collection. 

Plus the 3D flowers from the Auburn Lane collection to create three fun layered clusters around the page. 

To add some more interest to an otherwise plain white sheet, I added some orange and black splatters and a few gold 3D drops. 

My final touch was to go around each word with a thin liner black marker to make the title pop just a bit. 

Such a beautiful saying for such a classic pumpkin photo. I’m just ready for pumpkin season, y’all! I hope you are too, and that you have found some inspiration through this layout. 

I will be back one more time later this month to share a final dose of scrappy inspiration as a Design Team member. Thanks for stopping by friends! x

Simple Halloween Mixed Media Layout | Helen Gullett

Hello everyone... Helen is here with a simple Halloween mixed media scrapbook layout. On my layout today, I use the Wicked Fun cutting file and the Road Trip Printable.

On the background 12x12 cardstock, I sprayed the yellow Marabu Art Spray. I let it dry on the side while I work on the cutting.

I used the spider web and title from the Wicked Fun cutting file on this layout. I enlarged the spider web to fit on the background cardstock. Using my Silhouette Cameo, I cut it with black cardstock and then I added some of the Shimmer Creative Medium for extra glitter and sprakle on the web. It dried pretty quick. After that, I added the spider web on the base cardstock with adhesive glue.

I printed and cut the tag from the Road Trip Printable. I wrote the date and glued the tag behind the photo. Then, I added them on top of the spider web with adhesive glue.

I cut out the sentiment with yellow and black cardstocks and stacked them together to get the shadow effect on the die cuts. I also added some of the Shimmer Creative Medium on the word "First" for the shimmer and sparkle.  And then, I added both die cut words on the page using adhesive glue.

I am so happy that I am making progress with finishing my daughter's baby album.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day...
