Simple Stories & The Cut Shoppe Product Swap Day 6!

Hello and welcome to day six of the Simple Stories and The Cut Shoppe team up! I'm excited to share three projects with you today, all using the beautiful We Are Family collection from Simple Stories and some fun cut files from The Cut Shoppe!

For this first layout, I used the Word Art and A Banner Day cut files. I love all the words that come with "Word Art"! I added lots of fun layers using stickers and the Bits & Pieces from the We Are Family collection, and then I experimented with some yellow paint splatters to complete the look.

Next, I cut out a giant heart from the Pie Hearts cut file. I backed each piece of the pie heart with a different patterned paper. I left one piece open to place my photo in.  After it was all filled in, I adhered the heart onto a paper splattered with coordinating mist. I kept the rest of the layout pretty simple, just using stickers to title and embellish it. 

My third layout uses the Sweet Hearts and Picture Perfect cut files. I loved the string hearts in the patterns of the paper, and loved that the Sweet Hearts string art heart matched them! Once I had my photo and string hearts placed, I built the layout around it. I tried to fit as many hearts as I could onto the page!

Thank you for letting me share my layouts with you! I've hope you have enjoyed this wonderful week of inspiration on the Simple Stories and The Cut Shoppe blogs! In honor of our collaboration, The Cut Shoppe is having a 30% off sale through September 15th. Be sure to check it out!
