Together Falala | Kelly Janes

Hey friends! Kelly back today with a new 12x12 scrapbook layout using the Boughs of Holly Cut File (which was a freebie cut file from 2017).

I don't normally scrapbook out of season, but I've been feeling festive early with all of the December Daily goodness that is being posted lately. I used an older collection from Basic Grey to cut the cut file and then positioned the cut file on another patterned paper. The cut file was blending in a little too much on the background, so I added black hand-stitching around the entire cut file to help it pop.

I then moved onto embellishing. This Basic Grey collection is several years old, and I don't have any die cuts from the collection. I only have the chipboard and sticker sheet. Thankfully the new Pink Paislee Christmas Collection die cuts matched! I added all of those embellishments around the layout and my photo. I am so happy with how this turned out. It's very minimalistic, but I love all of the different textures and dimension!

The Cut Shoppe Store is full of great cut files, digital stamps and much more! Be sure to check it out!

Beautiful Everyday Life | Mandy Melville

Hi everyone!

Mandy here today to share a traveler's notebook layout that I created using the Love Rules cut file set from The Cut Shoppe! I documented a super cute photo of my son Isaac with my niece Eliza. Isaac is so good with his younger cousins, and they all absolutely adore him. I'm so glad that I captured this beautiful moment when Eliza climbed up onto Isaac's lap for a cuddle.

I love that the traveler's notebook decorative pages are perfectly sized and ready to cut! The heart background from the Love Rules set is so pretty and was perfect for my layout!

Love Rules

I covered the left hand side of the spread with a text patterned paper and then added my title to the page using some Felicity Jane die cut pieces. I then chose three patterned papers, and backed each row of hearts in the cut file in a repetitive pattern using the papers. Once I had finished backing the cut file, I adhered it to the right hand side of the spread.

To give the background some more texture and interest, I added an epoxy heart in a matching colour to some of the hearts in the cut file. Behind my photo I added some layers using a journaling card and a die cut tag. I also created a little embellishment cluster on the bottom right hand corner of the photo.

I finished the layout off with a little bit of typed journaling, which I cut into strips and added underneath the photo.

Thanks so much for joining me here on the blog today. I hope that you enjoyed taking a look at my traveler's notebook layout!

A World of Octobers - Audrey Yeager

Hello everyone!  I am excited to share this fall themed page with you with this adorable cut file called "World of Octobers".

World of Octobers

I began by cutting most of the title from white cardstock, but separating out the word "October" and the leaf and cutting those separaetly.  I covered the background with white gesso and then went over the page with some mixed media sprays.

After that was day, I backed each letter with a different colored patterned paper.

I fussy cut some leaves from other patterned paper, and matted my photos. 

I cut the title from a deep purple cardstock, added a few sequins and other stickers, and I was finished!

You can see the entire process in the video below!  Thanks for watching!

Comfort Food with Kira

Hey there!  It's Kira and I am back with another 8.5x11 scrapbook layout using the Eat Beat digital from The Cut Shoppe! I love the digital stamps for their versatility, so today I used one of the stamps as a cut file title!  Here's a look at my layout:

I started with these two photos of my kids at the zoo.  We received an annual pass to the zoo from my mother in law for Christmas last year, so we try to get a lot of use out of it.  One of the traditions we have going to the zoo, is buying the kids popcorn and animal crackers.  So I wanted to document this and the Eat Beat stamp works perfectly for this!

I created a "popcorn bucket" out of some patterned paper and used a flower punch as my popcorn.  Some pieces I popped up on foam to add dimension.  I also sprinkled in some sequins for a bit more texture.

I cut "comfort food" out on white cardstock, and attached it to my layout with some foam adhesive.  I positioned my photos so they looked like they were falling out of the popcorn bucket.

I finished off the layout with some embellishments.  Here's another look at the full layout:

Thanks for stopping by!

Pumpkin Patch | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe friends!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the Pumpkin Patch cut file. This cut file is gorgeous for Fall/Autumn themed projects! I have teamed it with the soft and pretty 'Just a Little Lovely' collection by Pinkfresh Studio.

Pumpkin Patch

I started out by backing the title in a soft pink paper and then backed the main part of the pumpkin with another of the soft papers. The stalk and leaves were backed using 2 of the papers from the 6' x 6' paper pad. I then added craft foam underneath and adhered to the background paper. 

I placed my photo up in the top right of the pumpkin and layered some of the 6'x 6' papers from the paper pad underneath the photo. I also added one of the dimensional banner stickers under the photo. I also added one of the wood beads to the centre of the 'p' in 'Pumpkin'.

The florals in this collection are gorgeous, I added one of them to the top left of the pumpkin and also added some of the gold glitter enamel dots to the centres of the flowers. I also added a small single flower above the floral cluster.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have been inspired by layout? Make sure to check out The Cut Shoppe store for the Pumpkin Patch cut file so you can use it your next project!

Happy creating!

Thankful | Vânia Fonseca

Hello crafty friends! Vânia here sharing a Traveler´s notebook page from my ring bound TN.

I´m using the Background Check cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

I'm also using the Heritage collection from Maggie Holmes it's one of my favorite collections, so every time i can i like to use it in my projects.

I backed each number using a different patterned paper and used some of the cut-outs as a background for my page.

Because the idea for this pages, as the tittle suggests, is that we always have a lot of reasons to be thankful, i chose to play with the numbers on the right side and multiple photos on the left page.

Thank you so much for watching! Happy crafting!

We are so excited to introduce you to our November Guest Designer, Flora Farkas!!  Flora is a former Design Team member and we love everything she creates!  It's exciting to have her with us today, and getting to see what she did with the This Much Cut File on her gorgeous layout.


Hi Ladies, I am super happy and excited to be back on the awesome The Cut Shoppe blog. This blog and Ashley's cut files always have a special place in my heart. I am honored to be asked to be a guest designer. I must tell it was difficult to pick one cut file for today's post, but in the end I chose This Much cut file.

I love to back large titles even if it takes time, the result is worth all the effort. I backed the enlarged title with a Pink Paislee - Truly Grateful rainbow paper. I usually glue behind the cut file small paper scraps. Once the liquid glue dries I cut away the undesired parts.  

I also added fussy cut rainbow leaves using tone on tone technique. I band them to create 3D look and adhered some of them with foam tape. Next to the photo I placed Pink Paislee - Truly Grateful Stickers, Ephemera pieces and Wood Buttons. 
I just love the eye-catching big title, it makes the whole design stunning. I hope you will try out the This Much cut file !

That was it for today! I hope you enjoyed to see my new scrapbook layout. Thanks for the great opportunity Ashley! I love all The Cut Shoppe cut files and can't wait to work with another one.
Thanks so much for sharing with us Flora!  We love your gorgeous layout and the way you used the This Much Cut File.  Make sure you are following Flora on Social Media.  You can find her HERE on Instagram and her shop, Pink and Paper Shop
