Flower Garden Cut File – Marvelous Easter

Happy Monday!  I am so excited to share my first project for The Cut Shoppe Design Team!

Today I am using the Flower Garden cutfile and I altered it a little bit to fit my photo!

I used my March Clique Kit featuring Paige Evans Pick Me Up collection!  I just love the colors in this kit and all the fun embellishments!

I removed the Bloom&Grow saying on the cutfile by simply just snipping it off with my scissors!  I knew it did not go well with my photo but I wanted to use the flowers!

I used some White Smoke Heavy Cardstock from the Clique Kits shop as my base and added some color using some mist to match the colors in the collection!

To finish off my layout I embellished lightly around my photo that I added layers too and then added a few enamel dots from the kit!

This layout came together very quickly and I just love how the flowers add so much color to my layout!  You can find this cut file HERE in The Cut Shoppe!  You can check out my finished layout on The Cut Shoppe Blog HERE!  Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of your day!

Little Moments

Hello Everyone!

Today I have a layout to share that I created using the October 2016 Clique Kit that features Pinkfresh Studio Indigo Hills!  This kit also has some beautiful papers from Simple Stories Posh collection and a fun mix of embellishments that include Clique Kits exclusives!

I am also using a beautiful cutfile from 17Turtles designed by Juliana Michaels that you can pick up for free on her website!  Make sure to check out her other cutfiles too!

Juliana has a great blog post on this cut file that you can check out HERE with great tutorial on using the cutfile to cut out your pattern paper pieces to back the file!  It has to much faster than tracing and cuting it out by hand like I did!

I cut my file out with some white cardstock from My Minds Eye that I picked up in the Clique Kits shop!  I love this cardstock and has become a must in my stash!

Embellishments I did keep pretty light so the background took the main focus but I did add some of the ephemera pieces from the October kit and some white thread from my stash!

The little moments acrylic piece is from Color Cast Designs and was included in the June 2016 Clique Kit that you can check out and pick up HERE!  I have been hoarding this piece forever and I think this was the perfect layout to finally use it on!  Here is a look at my final layout!  I just love how it tured out!
