Jedi Master

Halloween is almost here, and we've got some new cut file sets in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store that are perfect for documenting your Halloween memories!  My layout today, features a photo of our furry family member, Baxter.  We recently stopped at Pet Co., and the doggie Halloween costumes were calling out for a model.  After several different ones, Yoda was picture worthy!  I thought the new Midnight Hour background cut file was a perfect complement to the photo.

I knew I wanted to use the design in the background, but I didn't want to make it the full background of the layout.  So I decided to cut a large star design from White cardstock, and then added The Midnight Hour cut file behind it.  I also layered a subtle patterned paper behind the cut file, to complete the look.  And I can't have a layout without machine stitching, so I stitched around the large star shape.

I also thought it would be fun to tilt my photo, title and embellishments to flow with the tilt of the large star shape.  I used a mix of Crate Paper collections, including After Dark and Gather.  Sounds like an odd combo, but the designs on the Gather patterned papers were generic enough to fit right in with the embellishments from the After Dark collection.

I finished the layout with a few Happy Halloween wood veneers, that are also available in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store.  And I splattered a bit of Black Color Shine over the layout, to tie everything together!

We've got everything you need for your Halloween projects, so stop by TCS Etsy store to check out all of the Halloween cut files, Ghost Town Digital/Printable collection, Happy Halloween Wood Veneers, and Halloween Acrylic.  Here's a look at all of the new cut file sets, you'll find in the shop today.

You Stole My Heart

Hello scrappy friends, it's Zinia here and today I want to share with you a wreath design I created using a super cute cut file from the Cut Shoppe etsy store.

So I grabbed a bunch of 6x6 paper sheets mainly from Paige Evans' "Take me Away" collection and I started cutting a some of the shapes from the Oodles of Doodles cut file.  I picked different shapes in different sizes for every paper I cut to have some variety of die cuts to work with.

Once I had all my pieces cut I arranged them on my page. To make my wreath more "rich" I decided to fussy cut some flowers that came in one of the 12x12 papers from the "Take me Away" collection. I started committing to the arrangement by sticking down the flowers first and then slowly adding the die cut pieces. 

It was a bit hard to balance all the different shapes, sizes and patterns but I took my time and made sure to spread everything evenly. 

To add some more interest around the wreath, I sprinkled with some Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Sweet Mint and Gold. 

For my title I used the gold phrase thickers from the "Take me Away" collection paired with the small gold alphas from the Maggie Holmes "Gather" accent stickers sheet.

With all the business of the wreath, I didn't really need to do a lot of embellishing. I added a few gold phrase stickers and a few more little bits just help the design look more balanced.

I'm really excited about the way this turned out. I enjoyed the whole process of placing all the little die cut pieces and adding the final touches with the extra embellishments.

I really hope you enjoyed this as well and you got inspired to create something beautiful with your cut files from the Cut Shoppe etsy store. Until next time, happy scrapping :)

Hello Fall

Hello friends!  Candace here with you to share a sweet fall layout featuring my favorite fall cut file, Leaf Pile.  This delicate cut file is a perfect background for any of your fall themed projects!  You can check it out in the store here.

To start the layout I cut the file out of white card stock and to create softness layered it over vellum.  To continue with the theme of the layout I used the Autumn Day collection by Photoplay Paper Co. 

A few close ups of the details...

I layered paper from the collection to create a photostack behind a sweet photo of my little men.

To add detail to the layout and to adhere the cut file down with out using adhesive I stitched the file down with my sewing machine.  I love the soft affect of the stitching over the delicate file and vellum.

For the final touches on the layout I added a small cluster of embellishments to the lower right corner of the photo.  I worked along the diagonal and added a fall banner and a wood veneer title.  
Such a fun fall layout!  
Make sure that you stop by the shop to check out this and all the other fall themed cut files!  

Hope you have a beautiful fall day!

Guest Designer | Kriszti Bozsits

Happy Monday everyone!  We've got a new Guest Designer to kick off some inspiration for this week.  Please help us welcome Kriszti Bozsits!
I'm a coffee addict. This page is created with my morning coffee. I used the Picture Perfect and The Cuppa Joe cut files (Cuppa Joe is one of my most favorite cut files I have ever laid eyes on). I decided to use My Mind's Eye On trend dots paper, Pink Paislee Fancy Free and Jen Hadfields collections for this layout. I machine stitched a circle around the design.

What a gorgeous layout Kriszti!!  Love the fun layering and the large stitched circle with the polka dot background paper!  Thanks so much for guesting with us!  You can find more of Kriszti's gorgeous work on her Blog, PaperHeart.

Goodbye & hello

Hello, Crafty friends~ It's Eunyoung. Today I'm going to share a layout with a cute title. I used a message cutfile from The Hello Fall cut file set for a title.
The Hello Fall cut file set. It includes 4 fall themed phrases. I chose the 'goodbye summer hello fall' but I used only a 'goodbye & hello' from it. 

1. Cut a message from The Hello Fall cut file set using Silhouette cameo.
2. Do machine stitchings on a white cardstock for a texture.
(The white cardstock is for a background of a layout.)
3. Do machine stitchings on a message die-cut, a photo & other die-cuts.

4. Add the patterned paper on the bottom of background with double-side tape.
5. Add the title with pop-dots.
6. Add die-cuts & a photo on background with pop-dots.
7. Embellish with word stickers along the stitchings.

I hope you'll enjoy this!! Thank you for stopping by.

Hi there,

Zsoka here with you today with a new layout! Again I'm using the amazing Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills collection.

I used the top right cut file from the above set, added outlines and then welded the half circles together in a circle kind of shape. I used pop dots to raise the file up for some added dimension. I added my photo and a few embellies and then called it done! I didn't even need to use ink because my background paper already had ink splatter. Easy! 

Thanks for stopping by, see you soon :) X

Let's Eat Today

Welcome to the Cut Shoppe blog, Wendy here today documenting our various food places we like to visit.  For my layout today, I used the Foodgram cut file and the Friends Forever cut file.

When I turn on my Cameo, I plan on cutting a few cut files at a time, my favorite paper to use is white cardstock.  I then keep the extra cuts I've made in a drawer so that I can pull out those special touches to make a page pop.  As I was cutting out some words for another layout I was using I happened to lay the extras on this blue Dear Lizzy paper with my photos and I knew I needed to keep going with the white words!  Don't you just love when inspiration hits?

Once laying out my words and fitting in my pictures I began to add some bold pops of color for interest, including the Today that is part of my title.

You can see I created a visual triangle with the green throughout the layout, which aids the viewers eye in taking in the whole layout.  Anyone else love WaWa??? 

A few more black pops and a donut in place of the letter o, gets the food story across just right!

Thanks for joining me today, I hope you are feeling inspired to go create your own background or play with some of the words available in the Cut Shoppe.  The Cut Shoppe etsy has such great cut files available, make sure you stop by today and doing a little shopping!
