Love this | Sasha Biyanova

Hello everyone!

It's Sasha here today with my new layout using two cut files!

I used The Beach Life cut file for the main theme of the layout. And this layout is about my baby girl when she was one y.o. and 4 month)) And now this is the age of my baby boy and this is so funny to look through the time)

 And also I used letters from the This Much cut file to create my title.

I love the colors which I choose for the cutted pieces. At first I thought it wouldn't perfect with these photos but I am happy with the result!

Wanna to have for myself such a beautiful flip flops and sunglasses)))

And umbrella too, 'cause)))

Hope you were inspired!
And made a lot beautiful summer photos for this cut file)

Thank you for stopping by)
Happy crafting!

Birthday Burger | Iris Fox

Hello friends.  Iris here ready to say Supersize me!  That's exactly what I did with one of the latest cut files from The Cut Shoppe. Meet Fast Food:

And this is the layout I created with this fun cut file:

I documented my daughter's 8th birthday when she actually didn't want a cake, but asked for Five Guys burger (a double of course) and fries.  This cut file was so perfect for this story! I used the Jillibean Soup Let's Celebrate collection which is chock full of fun colors.  

I started right off backing the cut file, which I cut at 6.5" tall by 8.87" wide.  I did pull a darker green polkadot from my stash for the lettuce and a woodgrain for the patty.  I didn't add back the extra sesame seeds because she usually picks some off the bun.  Wanted to keep it authentic! Lol Backing this cut file was super fun to see it come together. I added a candle from the collection right in the middle of the bun, and voila, birthday burger.

I wanted everything to pop from the background, but I didn't want it to be too dark, so I cut a 9" circle from the light green paper from the collection, backed it with a dark blue, and built the cut file and photos within the circle. I overlapped the cut file at the bottom corner to make it more fun and interesting.

I printed my journaling on vellum to add to the fry holder.  To get a rough idea of the size I needed, within the Silhouette software I copied my typed journaling and sized it on the cut file on my screen.  Then in Pages (the word processing software on my Mac) I adjusted the size and spacing to match.  Once printed, I cut them into strips and did any final adjustments as I placed it on the page.

Then I added some embellishments in the areas where the cut file meets edges, spelled out my title all along the curve with the awesome rainbow alphas that are also Jillibean Soup, and as the final touch I stitched through the middle of them to be certain they will stay down and more importantly to add interest and whimsy.

I felt like a kid with a crayon box making this layout.  Normally I'm a very literal scrapbooker, and wouldn't have though to have a huge burger and fries taking up a significant portion of my page, but I'm so glad I supersized.  It's super fun and I can't wait to do it again with fun cut files from The Cut Shoppe.  Stop by the shop to grab yourself some fun files!

Sweet Summer Time | Erica Thompson

Have you signed up to receive The Cut Shoppe Newsletter yet? Well what are you waiting for? Yesterday a new newsletter went out and included was the Sweet Summer Time cut file! Who loves free cut files? I know I do!
I pulled out the Oh Summertime collection from Pebbles that I picked up at A Cherry on Top! I love the bright colors and fun summer images in this collection.
 I added some fun yellow Shimmerz to a white piece of cardstock and also some sprinkles of aqua and pink for little pops of color behind the cut file.
The photos are of our youngest Liam Jay and his first time having a shaved ice from Tropical Sno! He had a cinnamon flavored one and he loved it! Such a fun summer treat! I embellished around the cut file with ephemera and stickers from the collection and a pink epoxy flair from Scrappin Happy Studio. Here is a look at my completed layout using the Frebbie cut file available in our newsletter!

Since we're so close to the beach, we try to go often during the summer.  A few years ago, we decided to buy a boat and that makes it even more fun.  We went out last weekend, and I snapped some photos of our beach day.  The NEW Beach Life Cut File was perfect for the photo I wanted to use for my layout.

I have to admit, that this layout got off to a rocky start!  The pink polka dot patterned paper is not what I originally started out with.  I initially had another background paper from the Crate Paper Sunny Days collection, but after I had the entire layout finished, I decided I didn't like it.  HA!  Sometimes projects just don't go the way we want them to.  Thankfully, I was able to trim out my entire design from the first background paper and place it on the new one.

I already had my cut file, photo and embellishments in place, so I just adhered it all to the new background paper.  Then I decided I wanted some texture on the beach umbrella.  I used White embroidery floss to hand-stitch along all of the lines on the umbrella.  I love the tone on tone look of the White cardstock and White embroidery floss.

Once I finished the stitching, I felt like I needed something else above the beach umbrella.  The layout is bottom heavy, since my photo and embellishments are at the bottom of the page.  I decided to add the Sun + Shine Thickers above the umbrella and I included two hearts from the Sunny Days Chipboard sticker sheet.

You can find Beach Life in The Cut Shoppe store, along with three other NEW Cut Files!!  Make sure you stop by the store to check them out!!

Accio Firewhiskey with Kira

Hey there!  It's Kira and I am back with a little look at my Harry Potter vacation album.  If you've been following along with me on Instagram, you'll know that I recently took a trip to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, FL with my husband.  And I have been working through my album, little by little, to get our trip documented. 

Lucky for me, I asked Ashley months ago for some Harry Potter themed cut files, specifically because of this trip.  So this probably won't be the first time you see me using Wizarding World in my projects! 

I decided to print out my photo at 4.25x8.25.  I am holding my favorite HP World beverage, and of course my wand.  So I decided to title this Accio Firewhiskey.  ("Accio" is a summoning spell, for all of you muggles who may not be aware, and Firewhiskey is one of the specialty drinks you can grab in the park). 

I cut the word Accio out on some patterned paper, and used some alpha stickers to finish off my title.  I used bits of the same alpha stickers to add little "sparks" from my wand. 

I used some pocket pages to finish off this layout.  One pocket contains my journaling and the other just a subtitle pocket card. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow Mom by Joanna Bandelin

Hello friends, Joanna Bandelin here sharing a 12x12 scrapbook page. I know Father's Day just passed but I'm still scrapping those Mother's Day photos. I thought the Wow Mom cut file would be perfect along with the photo of myself and my girls on Mother's Day.

 I started my page by first cutting out the cut file in white cardstock and backing it with pretty pattern papers by Echo Park. 

I added lots of stickers to embellish my page in colors that coordinate with the papers.

I fussy cut the round family wreath and made a small cluster, tucked to the right of the cut file. 

When I saw the cute bird's nest sticker I knew it had to be on this page! I placed it just off to the left of the picture.

I really love the end result and hope I inspired you to get those Mother's Day photos scrapped.

Ahoy There | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe friends,

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I am sharing a new layout using the awesome new Ahoy There cut file!

Ahoy There

I cut the design from some red patterned paper and then backed it with a colourful stripe paper. I then added some craft foam on the underneath side and adhered it down to my background cardstock. I also added some foam dots underneath the points on the wheel. 

I had the perfect photo for this cut file, its of my son at Disneyland Paris, there was a big boat wheel in the playground area and he loved it! I placed my photo on the right hand side of the page and tucked in a frame and some stickers to add some interest and draw the eye to the photo.

I also layered some stickers over the top of the photo on the left hand side. The compass ones were perfect for the centre of the cut file design.  I also added a flair button to the very centre to enhance the design even more.

A few of the die-cuts were also great for embellishments, I added the Journey die-cut underneath the 'Ahoy There', I liked the pop of black and white down there. Some cute little ship wood veneer pieces just had to go on this page too. I placed one in between the 'Ahoy' word and the 'There' word. I also added a wood veneer large map marker to the top as I thought it looked good there!

Thanks so much for stopping by The Cut Shoppe blog today! Check out The Cut Shoppe store for some amazing digital designs for every kind of project!

Happy creating!

i love you this much | orange gearle

Hi! Orange Gearle here with a layout in my traveler's notebook.    I am using the This Much cut file -- here's a look at the layout!

And here is a closer look at the cut file!

This spread was all about how much I love the ocean -- the sounds, the smells, and how it allows me to exhale deeply and relax!  

I used a mix of papers from Pinkfresh Studio, Heidi Swapp, and One Canoe Two. I love all the pinks and yellows!

I made a video of my process, if that's something that suits your fancy!

Thank you so much for stopping by! XO o.g.
