Seek Adventure | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout with you for The Cut Shoppe featuring the stunning new Full Heart cut file!

Full Heart

This cut file design is one of those ones that you can take a busy paper and cut out a busy design with and still get an awesome look! I love cut file designs like this as the paper may have been one I would never use because of its busyness.

I cut the design out from a paper from Paige Evan's/Pink Paislee Horizon collection and I love how it turned out. I decided to adhere it to a plain white cardstock background to allow all the colours in the design to pop.

I layered some of the 6' x 8' papers under the photo as well as tucking in a few die-cuts for extra layers also. I also layered one of the title die cuts at the top of my photo as the words suited the girls and blended in with the colours in the photo. I kept other embellishments to a minimum as I wanted the cut file and the photo to be the main focus on my layout.

You can see lots of the detail of the Full Heart cut file design in the photo above. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Sea You Soon | Chasing the Sun | Pretty Little Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Pretty Little Studio using the gorgeous Chasing the Sun collection! I chose a title cut file design from The Cut Shoppe and backed it with the Fireworks paper from the Chasing the Sun collection. I love how the paper looks behind the cut file!

Once the cut file was backed, I used craft foam to pop it up and lift it up off the background paper, I used the front page of the 12' x 12' paper pack as it had the awesome grid design on the back of it. These grid design papers are perfect as background papers! I also popped up my photo and tucked in one of the tags from the Fly a Kite die-cut pack. I also layered some of the phrase stickers on top of the photo from the Summer Vibe word pack.

I added the super cute kite die-cut to the 'A' of 'Sea'. I also added one of the frame die-cuts and the gorgeous beach hut to the centre of the 'O' and lots more die-cuts were also added including a floral piece, some hearts and some of the tabs.

I added one of the Sunset die-cut words down to the left of the photo and also another of the tabs and a phrase sticker. I added 2 flair buttons on this layout, the beach ball from the Sunshine set and the sun from the Watermelon set. The flairs are just gorgeous from this collection. I ordered both sets!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my layout and you were inspired in some way?

Captured | Unforgettable Collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new design team layout for Cocoa Vanilla Studio featuring the gorgeous brand new Unforgettable collection! I am also featuring one of the stunning FREE cut files by Cut To You. The Unforgettable collection and the cut file go together beautifully!

I chose a pink, grey and white colour scheme for my layout today, I pulled some of the papers and lots of embellishments that were in that colour scheme and started out by cutting the cut file on white cardstock, I cut the file out with the intention of leaving some of the design inside the cardstock. I loved how I could pop out the hearts and create a dimensional look with them. I backed the cut file design with the pink paper and then machine stitched around the circle - you can see more detail in the photo below. I then matted the cut file and pink paper onto one of the grey patterned papers.

The photo is of my sister and I at our brothers wedding a couple of years ago, not often we get photos together with both my sister and brother living in England now. I added lots of paper layers underneath my photo and used foam tape to pop up my photo from the page. In the photo below, you can see I added a cluster of embellishments including some die-cuts and accessory stickers, I used foam dots again to lift up the camera die-cut and I also added one of the enamel dots to the centre - hooray for enamel dots making a come back in this collection! I love them! Over one the right hand side is another cluster featuring some of the floral and butterfly die-cuts. I also added one of the cute bows to the right of my title. 

My title is one of the gorgeous foam word titles, these are brilliant to add to any project, they make a statement and they really pop off the page too! I added one of the larger butterfly die-cuts to the left of the title to balance out the with the smaller one on the right hand side. A couple more enamel dots and a couple pf the gorgeous clear stickers were also added for some extra interest and texture.

Make sure to check out the Cocoa Vanilla store to download your FREE Unforgettable cut files that co-ordinate with the Unforgettable collection perfectly!

I hope I have inspired you in some way today?

My Happy Place | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

Today I am back with you to share a new design team layout for The Cut Shoppe using the awesome Geometric Frames cut file

Geometric Frames

I cut the design from white cardstock and then adhered straight onto another sheet of white cardstock. I really like how the white on white looks. I didn't use any patterned paper on this layout, instead I chose to use just cardstock and embellishments.

I placed my photo in the very centre frame and placed a die-cut frame over the photo,  I love this butterfliy so much. I then picked out 2 round frame die-cuts to go on either side of the photo. I placed another die-cut inside to frame on the left and also layered a flair button over the top. On the right side, I placed an ampersand die-cut, a wood veneer heart and an enamel dot inside the frame. 

I added at least one die-cut to each of the other frames also, sometimes even adding more than one. I mixed things up a little by adding some wood veneer pieces, some enamel dots and some phrase stickers to embellish. My title is the blue 'My Happy Place' die-cut, it was the perfect title for my page about my nieces being in one of their happy places, which is outside! 

To finish my page I added the date stamp and one of the metal clips just below my photo. Make sure to check out this very versatile cut file in the store, there are so many fantastic ways you could use this design, it would look great with different papers or photos behind each frame, you could fill each one entirely with embellishments too!

Bloom | Unforgettable Collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing with you my second layout using the stunning NEW Unforgettable collection by Cocoa Vanilla Studio!

The florals in this collection are just amazing and so beautiful.......they were itching to get onto a page! I decided a photo of my beautiful nieces was the perfect photo to document them dressed in pink together!

I decided on a horizontal design both at the top and bottom of the page, I added the gorgeous small floral paper to the top of the page and also layered the teal diagonal stripe paper under the  floral paper. At the bottom I added some of the gorgeous die-cut flowers and arranged them in a cluster. I also added the gorgeous 'Smile' flair button over the top of the flowers. I added the foam title word just above the floral cluster and also added one of the butterfly die-cuts.

Underneath my photo I added some of the floral die-cuts and also some of the clear stickers too. The butterfly die-cuts are just gorgeous and I added another one to the right of the photo as well as another of the gorgeous flair buttons. I added some of the accessory stickers to both the top of the photo and the bottom of the photo. These phrases are the perfect small addition embellishment.

I absolutely LOVE the addition of the enamel dots again in this collection so I added a few of them around the page in different sizes and colours. Whenever I get a new collection to work with from Cocoa Vanilla, I always try to include at least one of everything on the page!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you will get your hands on some of the gorgeous Unforgettable collection if you haven't already got some!

Today | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

Today I am sharing a new layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the gorgeous All Heart cut file

All Heart

I chose the Flourish collection by Maggie Holmes for this layout and decided to do a reverse design on this layout, so I cut the design out from the spotted paper and then took the hearts out and put them aside. I then washi taped the background like a template to white cardstock. I took each heart and added them back in to the design like a jigsaw puzzle, I used foam tape to pop them all up and then took away the template once they were all back in. I love how it looks!

I added some pretty embellishments to enhance the design of my layout, I love the gold accents on the embellishments, they really match the colour of the photo. I added a wood veneer title that I have had in my stash for ages and I love how that looks.

The All Heart cut file is one of my all time favourite designs from The Cut Shoppe store. There is also also a remix of the same file where you can back the hearts instead of having them solid. It's such a versatile design and takes the guess work out of deciding on a design sometimes! 

Make sure to check out the store for all the awesome designs you can get! Don't forget once you have purchased the design they can be used over and over again and can be modified too!

Love You | Unforgettable Collection | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone,

Today I am excited to be sharing my first layout with you for Cocoa Vanilla using the stunning Unforgettable collection! I am documenting a beautiful photo of my sister and her husband from their wedding day and this collection just oozes lovely things like weddings!

I decided to cut a strip of the stripe side of the 'Sprightly' paper and placed it vertically down a plain white cardstock background. I then trimmed the white cardstock down so that I could use the pink side of the 'Unscripted' paper as a border. I added some machine stitching down each side of the vertical strip. I added some layers under my photo including the floral paper from the 'Pretty Bits' paper and one of the die-cut frames, I popped these all up using craft foam.    

I tucked in one of the tab stickers both at the top and bottom of my photo from the Accessory sticker sheet. As you can see in the detail photo above, I used some of the gorgeous new foam words as my title! They are gorgeous and aren't too sticky, perfect if you aren't sure of placement, they are easily repositionable which is very handy for me! I also added one of the gorgeous bows and a few other embellishments finish off this side of the layout.

On the left hand side, I added one of the cute banner stickers and tucked in some of the gorgeous floral die-cuts. I also layered one of the flair buttons to the top of one of the florals. A few other small embellishments like the clear stickers and enamel dots finish off this side. One thing I wanted to point out in the floral die-cuts is that gorgeous texture you can see in the detail photo below. I just love that not only are there beautiful colours in this collection but the texture is awesome too.

Thank you for stopping by today! This collection is just so gorgeous! If you haven't already ordered yours, make sure you get your order in at one of our retailers! Everything is stunning! I hope you are inspired to create something pretty with this collection.

Extraordinary | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing a new design team layout for The Cut Shoppe 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!

You and Me | Free Spirit | Cocoa Vanilla Studio

Hi everyone!

 Today I am sharing a new design team layout created for Cocoa Vanilla Studio using the gorgeous Free Spirit collection. Today my inspiration comes from the awesome sketch from Page Maps some of the design team were given to work with for this week.

Here is the awesome Page Maps sketch we were given for inspiration. It can be found under the October 2018 archives here

I still have a few bits from some of the older CVS collections so I decided to pull out the pretty Free Spirit collection and work with that. I stuck to the sketch design pretty closely, even adding the same elements the sketch suggested. I changed it slightly to balance the page and also replaced a suggested photo for paper instead.  I started off by trimming some white cardstock down and then machine stitching 2 circles. I then adhered the white cardstock to one of the gorgeous floral papers. 

I matted my photo with one of the papers from the Free Spirit collection and also layered another one above to replace the 2nd photo as I mentioned earlier. I also added some of the journal spots as a layering piece. I added one of the scalloped border stickers above the photo of my sister and I also added a few embellishments to this area also. I fussy cut the 'You and Me' title from one of the journal cards included on one of the papers from the Free Spirit collection and positioned it where the sketch suggested. 

I cut out the pink phrase 'Hello Happiness' and added that tucked in under my photo and also layered the 'Wonderful' die-cut phrases over the photo also. One of the cute flair buttons and a die-cut heart were added to the left of the photo. On the sketch, the suggestion is to place a large embellishment like a jar of flowers, I added one of the floral stickers from the accessory sticker sheet here instead and I really like how it looks.    

Lastly I added the die cut banner popped up using pop dots to the top left corner touching the machine stitching, I also sprinkled some white sequins around and some navy Heidi shine mist. The date stamp was the very last thing added and that completes my layout.
Be sure to check out Page Maps for inspiration, there are so many designs over there to kick start your creativity.

Check them out and get creating with your favourite Cocoa Vanilla collection!

So Sweet | The Cut Shoppe

Hi everyone!

 Today I am sharing a super fun design team layout created for The Cut Shoppe using the awesome NEW Fair Fun cut file!

As soon as I saw the Fair Fun cut file I just knew it had to be paired with some of my leftover Carousel collection from Crate Paper. 
Fair Fun

I went ahead and started backing the design with different patterned papers as well as some vellum to give the illusion of being able to see through the Ferris Wheel. I then used one of the Ferris Wheel transparent embellishments for the centre and popped the whole cut file up using some craft foam.

To enhance each of the carriages, I added a star embellishment to draw attention to them. My photo is of my sons at Luna Park here in Sydney, Australia. They both had never eaten Fairy Floss (cotton candy) before so they absolutely loved how huge these were! The pom pom embellishments from this collection reminded me of the fluffiness of it haha!

This cut file is suited to any kind of theme, not just a fair! You could use it for a girl or boy page, travelling...just about anything! I love how it can be layered over and still give a great effect. You could even try adding embellishments underneath the vellum for a different effect!

Make sure to check out The Cut Shoppe store for all the awesome new cut files as well as all the other awesome ones! You will definitely find something in store to suit your next project!
