fall favorites | iris fox

Hello friends! Iris here ready to shed summer and head into my most favorite time of the year, Fall. So when Ashley designed the new Fall Favorites Digital Stamp, I couldn't wait to play with them.  Nevermind that it's just the end of August. And since Fall is my love language, it was completely fitting that I document my love for fall with the new cut file called Love Language.

A heart with a bunch of speech bubbles, how fab is that?!  To begin, I cut the Love Language cut file out of white cardstock twice, because I had plans to tuck some elements under and knew it would look better if the whole cut file was raised.  In the Silhouette Studio, I decided where my pictures would go, which gave me the dimensions I'd need to print them at. I also opened individual PNG files that come in the Digital Stamps, copied my favorites to the same design space that my cut file was on, and resized them into the speech bubbles I wanted them on.  Then I moved them onto an 8.5x11 space and sent them to my printer directly from Silhouette Studio.  

To add a different element, I printed the Digital Stamps on vellum.  I absolutely love how crisp the black words look on the vellum, and how they still let the background show through.  

With the whole layout planned out in Silhouette Studio, it all came together easily.  It took some time to cut everything and back the file, but as usual it's totally worth it! 

I tucked some fabric leaves from my stash in 3 spots, and added embellishments from Ashley's Oakley Avenue Collection from Pretty Little Studio. Totally unplanned but totally perfect!  This includes the flair along with the title acrylic and little word strip.  In my clusters I added and a few misc brads and enamel dots.

I did add white splatters onto my background before settling the cut file on top, and to tie everything together I added more splatters in aqua and orange, concentrating on the areas around the embellishment clusters.

This layout, with the super fun Love Language cut file and Fall Favorites Digital Stamp set was such a treat to work on!  Stop by The Cut Shoppe to check these out and the other fabulous digital stamps that Ashley just added to the shop.  They add a whole new dimension of fun!

July Calendar

Hey friends! Kelly back today with a new layout using two cut files, Flower Delivery & Brush Up Alpha.

I love cut files because they can be used as large focal points on a layout or they can be used as subtle embellishments; which is what I've done today. I recently discovered the Happy Planner and will be using one as a type of Project Life documenting. I was messing with my printer settings so I had a couple sheets of July photos. I stumbled on a calendar patterned paper from Bella Blvd and thought it would be perfect to use; especially since I'm currently loving planner style documenting!

I positioned my photos on the layout and then grabbed a few floral die cuts. I cut leaves and a pink flower from the Flower Delivery Cut File on patterned paper and tucked them in with the die cuts to add extra pops of color.

There was also an area for the month at the top of the 12x12 patterned paper, so I cut "July" from the Brush Up Alpha Cut File on black cardstock. I added my journaling and a few more embellishments to finish the layout.

I absolutely love the versatility of cut files! A large focal point or using them as die cut type embellishment can make such an impact on a layout or project! Don't forget to visit The Cut Shoppe Store to check out all of the cut files, classes, and digital stamps!

Extraordinary | Tarrah McLean

Hi Cut Shoppe friends,

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


I cut the design out from white cardstock and then added some craft foam underneath the cut file and stuck it down onto another piece of white cardstock. I also cut out all the insert pieces from the patterned papers with the Cameo so that I could add them back in. 

I just love the depth and shadows the cut file design gives from the dimension from the pop dots, its an effective look with the patterned papers sitting flat on the background too. I added a photo of my littlest man to the biggest star at the bottom. This boy is exactly that too....Extraordinary! He is the dream child, always thinking of others, kind, loving, smart and funny! The Teen Spirit collection by Echo Park paper was perfect to put with this cut file. I love the bright colours against the white of the cut file design.

I kept the embellishing minimal because of the title taking up lots of room and being one of the main focal points. I added a few phrase sticker, die-cuts, enamel dots, cork shapes and wood veneer pieces to enhance the design. Some of the die- cuts I did pop up but others I added just flat to the page.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to create a project using one of the awesome large title cut files in The Cut Shoppe...there are loads to choose from so go and check out the store!

Happy creating!

Cool In The Pool

Hey everyone, Michelle here today with a new layout to share using the Cool In The Pool cut file and the Poolside collection from Fancy Pants Designs.  This was such a fun cut file to use.  I love files with big words.  No need to think of a title for your layout! lol

The colors and embellishments of this collection were perfect for this layout.  This photo of my son cracks me up! Cannonball!!!

Back to School | Marsha Farris

Hey friends!  Marsha here today sharing a traveler's notebook layout.  I used the Background Check cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

When this cut file was added to the shop, I knew I wanted to create a layout documenting my sons' first day of school last year.  It is such a perfect cut file to use in a traveler's notebook, too!

To begin my layout, I cut out the cut file using white cardstock.  I backed the numbers three and nine using some patterned paper from my stash.  I chose to only back those two numbers, making them stand out from the background.  I then adhered the entire cut file to a piece of patterned paper.  To embellish this page, I added a few puffy stickers and used some alpha stamps to stamp my sons' names.

For the other side of the spread, I layered some patterned papers behind my photo and then used some ephemera pieces and puffy stickers to embellish the page.

I used some white puffy alpha stickers and alpha stamps to add the title.  I just love how this layout turned out using this cut file!

Thank you for joining me today!  I hope you will stop by The Cut Shoppe store and check out all of the fun cut files that are currently available!

Never Act Your Age

Hey there! It's Devra here today. sharing this project featuring the On A Roll cut file.  I've wanted to use this cut file for a while now, but just coudn't pin down an idea for it. Until now. 

I wanted something fun and whimsical for some Disneyland photos. This cut file is perfect. I did a few things to it though. First I cut out the pieces. Then I went back in to design mode and moved the pieces away from each other in order to create more space. Then I used the offset tool to cut the stitch lines. As a bonus, with all the patterned papers I used, the extra space works in my favor. Next, I want to make a pizza with this cut file!

Sometimes you need to go do something fun, where you can be silly, laugh and just do what you want. This is my sister and I doing just celebrating her birthday at Disneyland.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. See you next time.

First Day of School | Erica Thompson

Hey everyone! Erica here with you today to bring you a back to school layout featuring the Too Cool For School cut file! This was a Freebie Friyay cut file from a few weeks ago and I could not wait to get it on a layout!
I pulled out some of the Doodlebug Design School Days collection because I thought it would be perfect with this cut file. I used the 6x6 paper pad to back the cut file and I used some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive to adhere the paper. This has been my go to adhesive the last few months. I love the primary colors in this collection and I had fun backing the fun images that are also in the different letters in the cut file.
I am documenting 4 photos of Eli James first day of school and his super cool Avengers backpack! He was so proud of it and the blue on the bag matches the blue in the collection! Perfect!
Make sure to check out all the awesome Freebie files in the shop along with the newest release! Here is a look at my completed layout and you can check out my process video HERE on YouTube or catch it down below!
