Welcome to our Halloween Blog Hop! We've got some amazing inspiration, cut file giveaways and a $25 Gift Certificate giveaway! Make sure you visit each designers Blog, because they will be giving away their favorite Fall/Halloween cut file during the Hop, through November 2nd! And we also have a FREE Halloween cut file to share with you! Make sure you read all the way down, to download the cut file.
We are kicking things off here on The Cut Shoppe Blog, and I have a layout to share with you using the Very Squarey background cut file and the Spooktacular Cut Ups.
I started my layout with the Very Squarey 8.5x11 background cut file, and enlarged it a bit in Silhouette Studio. Then I removed some of the squares from the bottom portion of the cut file. Next I cut it from a Black & White striped paper, and removed the paper from the mat once it was cut, leaving the squares on the mat. I placed the die cut piece over my background paper and traced some of the square shapes, so I could stitch them with embroidery floss. Then I placed some of the patterned paper squares from the mat back in place, by using the 12x12 cut piece as a stencil.
The Cut Shoppe is giving away a $25.00 Gift Certificate! A random winner will be announced on the Blog on November 6th, along with the cut file winners from each of the Design Team members' Blogs.
TO WIN: Just leave a comment on this post by November 2nd and tell us your favorite Fall or Halloween activity/tradition!
