Happy Haunting | Kelly Janes

Hey there, friends! Kelly here today to share a Halloween themed layout using The Wicked Good Cut File.

Once I had all of the cut file images sized in Cricut Design Space, I cut them on a piece of patterned paper that I had previously painted for another project but didn't like how it turned out. I always save my mixed media "disasters" because they always looked better when they are cut up and used like this! HA!

I arranged the circles in a diagonal design across a purple patterned paper background. I added orange machine stitching around each of the circles before adhering down them down. I also cut my photos into circles to keep the circle theme going. I then embellished with a lot of fun Halloween products and enamel dots.

Halloween is by far my favorite holiday to scrapbook. I love all of the fun, colorful products! I try to maximize how many layouts I create during the season, so be on the lookout for more Halloween themed layouts from me! Remember to visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files and digital collections!

Scraplifted Inspiration with Kira

Hey friends!  It's Kira and I am back with something a little different today.  I had recently seen this layout from Paige Evans and knew I needed to make something just like it.  Rainbows?  Hand Stitching?  What could be better??

I started with the Follow Your Heart cut file from The Cut Shoppe.  I cut it out on smooth white cardstock.

On a separate piece of white cardstock I started my mixed media rainbow.  I used gesso before applying my watercolors to make sure my paper wouldn't warp as much.  Then I roughly traced around my cut file.  I used watercolors to create my rainbow.

After my watercolors dried, I grabbed a rainbow of thread from my stash and matched my thread to each section of color.  I used a basic back-stitch.

I decided on this grey "rainbow" paper from Pink Fresh Studio as my background.  And then embellished the page with the Paige Evans sticker book.

Is there any layouts you've seen lately that have been begging to be scraplifted?

xo, Kira

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new LO to share using the Heart Shaped Box cut file.   After I cut it out, I decided to use just the wreath part of this file so I just trimmed it with scissors.   I also used a mix of Maggie Holmes products and flair from A Flair For Buttons.

I love adding stitching to cut files.  I love the texture it adds.

Here's a close up of the cut file.  It's so pretty!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine | A Fall Layout With Theresa

Hello Lovelies, Theresa here with a fall-themed layout using the gorgeous Fall Wreath Cut File! You can pick up this beautiful file in the shop via the link here. This is the layout I will be sharing with you today.

This is the cut file I chose to use for this layout. I love circles on layouts and envisioned some additional florals tucked in and around the wreath itself. 

My photo for this layout was from Halloween last year, when our daughter Emberlynn dressed up as a Greek goddess. Her white flowing costume inspired me to cut the file from white card stock. The Auburn Lane collection from Pink Paislee has some of the most beautiful colors of pink and green, so I decided to work with that collection as well. I began the layout with the wood grain patterned paper from the collection and laid down some white paint splatters, still inspired by her white costume. I have been obsessed with all things paint-y and splatter-y lately, and especially love experimenting with different paints to get different textures. For this background I used Golden Fluid Acrylic in Titanium White. The splatters almost feel like enamel dots!

Once the background is dry the fun can begin! I filled the cut file with different patterned papers from Auburn Lane, which added such a variety of color and visual interest. Once I adhered the wreath to the page I began adding cut vellum pieces to the wreath, tucking and gluing all around the page.

For my title I repeated the white so it would pop against all the color on the layout. The Sunshine and hearts are foam titles from American Crafts Thickers. 

The flowers that are tucked around the wreath were fussy cut from the Auburn Lane vellum. Once I cut them out of the vellum, I cut them in half to multiply the quantity and have enough to go around the page. I used Tombow liquid adhesive to glue them underneath the cut file. Everything is secured well and it was so much fun to add each of these details to this layout!

For journaling, I used some of the washi stickers and added the year. As a final pop of color, I laid the photo inside a wooden frame from Auburn Lane, and the layout is completed.

 Thanks so much for joining me today! See you again soon! xoxo

Fall days | Sasha Biyanova

Hello, friends!

It's Sasha here today with you to share my new TN spreads. What can I say about? One walk, so many photos and a lot of inspiration from The Cut Shoppe! This is perfect combination!

I used Falling for you traveler's notebook decorative page for my first spread.

I wanted to tell the story about the first leaves which began to fall down at the beginning of September.

I cut phrase on the background and used small pieces of scrapbook paper behind the background. I really loved the result.

 And even my son was surprised to leaves. However, he is surprised to everything now.

I used Finally Fall cut file for my second spread. "Feeling fallish" was the perfect title to my story so I decided to use it with this photo.

And also I loved the Fall banner! I think orange and blue colors were perfectly combined here. And these wrong words are so cute.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you've been inspired by my TN spreads, and that you'll check out other designs at The Cut Shoppe!

Happy crafting!

Halloween Banner Victoria

Hi friends, Victoria here today, and I can't wait to share with you my first project as a design team member for The Cut Shoppe.

Fall is a season I cherish, especially because it means Halloween ! And I love to decorate my house for this occasion. Let's see the spooky banner I made with an awesome cutfile from the shop!

Here's the "Pumpkin Carving" cut file that I used :

You can find it HERE.

To make this banner, I just cutted with my silhouette the pumpkin cut file in severals patterned paper.
I chose the Spooky Boo collection from Pebbles.

Then, I decorated the pumpkin with a few embellishments : stickers, enamel dots, die cuts…
I punched holes on them and placed my twine.
And it's ready to go !

Thank you so much for stopping by!
See you soon,

Lovely Heart | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe friends,

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the super pretty Dainty Doily cut file.  

image 0

I decided to cut the file out from the pretty colourful paper from the Chasing Dreams collection by Crate Paper. I love how all the colours turned out in the design. I machine stitched it around the very edge of the circle onto the background paper and then folded up the scallops for some definition.    

I popped up my photo onto some foam tape and added a pretty paper doily under the right hand side. I then adhered it to the centre of the Dainty Doily design. 

I added some nice embellishments around my photo and chose the title Lovely Heart. I picked out the Happy Heart phrase sticker and placed it in the centre of the Heart chipboard word. A few splatters of gold Heidi Shine and my layout was done.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Happy creating!

Say Hello to Fall | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here and I am excited to be starting a new term on The Cut Shoppe Design Team!   Today I am sharing a layout in my traveler's notebook album using the new Falling for You Travelers Notebook Decorative Page cut file.

I love the TN decorative pages from The Cut Shoppe because they are sized to fit perfectly in a traveler's notebook, and this makes them so easy to use!  I thought the Falling for You cut file would be perfect for my spread documenting a photo of my son taken last year at our local fair.

I started by cutting out the file using white cardstock.  I chose to use a piece of textured kraft cardstock as my base and love the way the cut file looks against it!  I used a fun wood veneer circle from Color Cast Designs (designed by our own Ashley Horton) as my title piece and layered it over the cut file.

I used some digital papers and elements from the Little Lamm Co. Gossamer collection, along with stamps from Feed Your Craft, and a wood/epoxy button sticker from Freckled Fawn.

I decided to cut out a few more of the leaves from the cut file to add to the other page.  I like the way this helps the pages feel like one cohesive spread.

I did some stamping, typed my journaling on a label, and added a few staples using my tiny attacher for added texture.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope I have inspired you to use a cut file from The Cut Shoppe on your next project!
