New Cut Files are in The Cut Shoppe store and there are lots of awesome designs to choose from!  I decided to use the This Is Us cut file for my layout.  We took a selfie on Easter, that I've wanted to use on a layout, and this seemed to be the perfect cut file to go along with it.

I cut the design from White card stock (one of my go-to looks) and backed the words of the cut file with papers from the Pink Paislee Indigo & Ivy collection.  I love how the colors in the collection coordinated with the photo.  After backing the letters, I decided to leave the heart shapes unbacked.  I liked the contrast of the White hearts on the wood grain background.

Since the cut file covered a lot of the background, I created three clusters to make a visual triangle on the layout.  I started with my photo and adhered it with dimensional foam to pop it off the page.  Then I placed some embellishments from the Indigo & Ivy collection around the photo.

I finished the layout with two other embellishment clusters at the top and bottom of the page.  And I added a few wood veneer hearts from the collection to the center of some of the die cut hearts.  Lastly, I brought in some of the beautiful rub-ons that are included in the Indigo & Ivy collection.

I hope you'll take some time today to visit The Cut Shoppe store to check out all of the fun,  new designs!
