Meet Cute // The Cut Shoppe

I’m back again with another layout for The Cut Shoppe! I came across this photo of my son from 2010 and absolutely loved his expression!

The Cut Shoppe-Plus Infinity

I started this layout by pulling the Plus Infinity Background Cut File into Cricut Design Space and slicing out individual plus signs onto a patterned paper from Simple Stories-Sunshine & Happiness Collection. I wanted to add visual interest that patterned paper so I backed it onto a black & white pattern paper from Amy Tan’s Stitched Collection. I then cut both of those papers at a diagonal and placed them onto a piece of white cardstock.

I then started my photo mat which consists of lots of layers from my stash-including random pattern papers, vellum & pieces from the cut apart sheet from the Amy Tan Stitched Collection. I wanted to pull in a little more yellow to help bring out the yellow that is in the photo mat so I used a combo of Shimmerz No Yoking Coloringz & Heidi Swapp Mustard Color Shine. I then added my title from American Crafts-Amy Tan-Rise & Shine Thickers, a flair button from my stash & a scattering of the plus signs left over from the Plus Infinity Cut File. I also added a chipboard piece from Heidi Swapp & a fabric heart from Amy Tan. I wanted to add a little more visual interest around the photo so I grabbed a few rub-ons from Basic Grey. I added stitching, Black Heidi Swapp Color Shine & enamel dots.

I’ve put together a YouTube Process Video so you can see how this all came together!

AHSC #170

I’m back with another card for Atlantic Hearts!¬†After three terms I’ve decided not to reapply as a design team member for AHSC so today is my last posting for Atlantic Hearts. I am so grateful to Michelle for allowing me to be part of her team for the past 18 months! I’ve learned so much and had a lot of fun with her sketches! So before I get to my card I want to say a big thank you to Michelle & all the gals at AHSC!!

AHSC #170

For my card today I used a white card base with a white panel cut using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangular Die. I then used a Tim Holtz die and cut this teal, glittery piece of fun foam. This stuff is amazing! I found it by accident at Wal-Mart. It cuts in a Big Shot like a dream and the glitter doesn’t flake off! Did I mention it’s adhesive backed?!?

I also cut the “Thank You” sentiment from a Heidi Swapp die 3 times and layered them to create dimension. I also covered the sentiment with Liquid Glass to add a little more shimmer to the card. I added black & white polka dot washi and splatter of Gold Heidi Swapp Color Shine. This card came together quickly & I’m happy with the end result!!
