Summer Sun & Fun

We've got a lot going on this week at The Cut Shoppe!  Our new Digital/Printable Collection, Sunny Side Up, was added to the Shop earlier this week.  Today we have new cut file sets available in the shop.  And Friday is the reveal for our 2016-2107 Design Team!  

I'm stopping in today to share a layout created with the Sunny Side Up collection and the new Summer Sun & Fun cut file set.  I thought this was the perfect time to pull out a summer photo from last year, since we're already in the month of June!

I printed several of the patterned papers from the Sunny Side Up collection to use on my layout.  I really like the varying colors on the Sun Up paper, so I cut the Summer Sun & Fun title from it.  Once the title finished cutting, I used my scissors to snip the word "Fun" from the welded words and moved it down below the word "Sun" on my page.  I tilted the title on the layout and added my photo on the right hand side of the page.  There are so many fun cut aparts and ephemera pieces with the collection, and I used a mix of both on the layout.  I can always print out more when I need them, so I never have to hoard my favorite pieces!!

I mixed in a few of my favorite embellishments, to add dimension and texture to the page.  Echo Park enamel dots, Jillibean Soup wood veneers and a flair button from A Flair for Buttons, worked perfectly with the Sunny Side Up collection.

I wanted to finish the layout with just a little touch of mixed media.  I used Pink, Yellow and Orange from my water color set and the brush to sprinkle it over the layout.  And to contrast the summer colors, I also splattered on a little Black Color Shine.

Make sure you visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store to check out the new cut file sets!  Here's a look at what's new today!

And don't forget to take a look at both of our Digital/Printable Scrapbook collections!

Make sure you stop back by tomorrow to meet the 2016-2017 Design Team!  They will start bringing inspiration your way, in July!
