Cleveland Zoo

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to be back today, sharing a new layout and the newest cut file sets that are available in The Cut Shoppe!  I have to say, that these are three of my new favorite sets, but I just knew I had to use the Sci-Fi Cirlces background for my layout today.  But the Picture Perfect set and Talk the Talk set, will definitely be used for upcoming layouts!  Here's a look at what I created!

The Sci-Fi Circles background is perfect for adding a lot of your favorite patterned papers and incorporating a lot of photos.  I backed most of the circle shapes with patterned papers from the Pink Paislee Atlas and Solstice collections.  The I printed several zoo photos and used a 2 inch circle punch to cut them out.  I decided to place the photos on the outer edges of the cut file and create a large title in the center of the layout.  Once I had my photos, title and embellishments in place, I chose several different colored coordinating embroidery flosses and stitched around the edges of some of the circle shapes.  I love the added texture the stitching adds to the layout.

If you plan to stop by The Cut Shoppe to check out the Sci-Fi Circles background, don't miss out on the other two new sets this week!  Here's a look at what's been added to the Shop!
