Hello There!

Hey there Cut Shoppe friends! Today’s project uses the fun, new Follow Your Heart cut file along with Everyday Essentials from The CutShoppe. I am so ready for warmer weather and this photo reminds me of summer days spent at the softball fields with my girls. Abby’s shirt has a cute little rainbow that matches the Pinkfresh Studio Dream On collection perfectly.

I began this layout with a light layer of white gesso on my patterned paper. Once that was dry, I used watercolors and plastic to smear paint onto the paper and followed that with splatters of the same colors. Next, I cut three of the Follow Your Heart cut file and glued them to the patterned paper with Tombow Mono glue.

This layout is pretty minimalistic in terms of embellishments, which is what I wanted. I cut the “Hello There” from the Everyday Essentials files using the blue patterned paper and adhered that next to the photo.

Last, I added a couple of clouds and some of the rubber embellishments and puffy stickers from Dream On.

Thank you for stopping by today. Be sure to visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store for these and many other fantastic items.

New Cut files - You Wonderful Thing

Hi there everyone!!    It is time for a new set of cut files at The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, and we have  some beautiful and very versatile designs for you!     There are so many possibilities with these cut files, and I am sure you all will find a new way to create with them.   Today's project uses the Spring Forward, and Follow Your Heart cut files in it.  Isn't that heart just perfect for many projects!?!

I used the Follow your Heart cut file to create the background for this layout.  I added an offset to the heart cut file before cutting it, so that I can add some  hand stitching to each of the segments in the heart cut out.   The texture that the hand stitching adds to the background works well with all the papers from Paige Evans "Oh My Heart Collection".

The tags in the Spring Forward cut file are simply gorgeous, and worked perfect to back the picture of my daughter.  I enlarged the tag with the "Bloom" word  in it, so that it will be large enough to back the picture.  Once cut, I used a small piece of vellum to back the tag.   All the flowers in the Oh My Heart collection just worked perfectly to frame the picture and title in the project.


I hope this layout and our new cut files inspire you to create some beautiful projects!  You can visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy store to check out all our cut files, and digital products. Here is a look at the newest  designs available now.

Hello everyone. Enza here to share a new layout created with one of the cut files included in the Happy Hearts set.

One of my favorite things to do is layering cut files on my pages. I love the texture and the extra dimension this little step adds. The collection I chose for today is the gorgeous Oh My Heart by Paige Evans. Lots of beautiful flowers to get inspired by. I wanted to create my own floral background and thought this cut file would be perfect for it.

To start, I resized the cut file to obtain three different sizes. I wanted to use different patterned papers, but I also wanted a neutral layer in between. Vellum is always a great option to tone down busy patterns, so I went with it.

I created several flowers and placed them in a diagonal across the page, making sure to leave some space for my photo. I also added some fussy cut flowers from one of the patterned papers in the collection.

A few white enamel dots and a title completed the layout.

Thank you for stopping by today. Check out The Cut Shoppe Etsy store for some inspiring cut files.

Have a lovely day!

March Moments

Hi! Irit here and I'm excited to share another scrapbooking layout I created using some fun cut files from The Cut Shoppe. Here's my layout-

I used these cut files to create it-

I supersized the March circle from Year Round, since I wanted to create a layout featuring some photos from this month.

I used leaves from the Flower Delivery file to decorate my embellishments, backing them with yellow washi tape.

All the papers and embellishments are from Felicity Jane kits.

Thanks so much for stopping by, don't forget to check out The Cut Shoppe for these files and many more!
