Good Life | The Cut Shoppe

Hey there, friends! I’m back today with a recent layout I created for The Cut Shoppe using the Thin Line Alpha Cut File.

You may remember another layout I created for The Cut Shoppe when we attended a MJ Live Concert. I had a couple photos of Aidan dressed as Michael Jackson & wanted to document those as well. I grabbed a handful of Project Life Cards, to use as layers, from older Hip Kit Club kits along with color coordinating embellishments from past kits.

A grid design is always a go-to design for me, so I used a Cricut Explore & a black Cricut pen to draw the grid lines on a piece of green patterned paper from My Mind’s Eye. I’ve found using my Cricut to draw the lines is the easiest way to get the lines centered & straight. I used black embroidery floss to hand stitch along the drawn grid lines. I then positioned my photos & Project Life Cards in the upper right and lower left quadrants. I cut the letters “M” & “J” using the Thin Line Alpha Cut File & black cardstock. I positioned the letters in the opposing quadrants.

Then came the fun…the embellishing! I used puffy stickers & die cuts from HKC, Puffy Stars & Black Puffy Alphas from Pinkfresh Studio & the stamp set from the Crate Paper – Good Vibes Collection to embellish the page. I layered the embellishments all around the page…including on top of the photo & tucked underneath the photo. I didn’t think I needed any journaling on this page because I have so much journaling on the opposing page that will be in my album.

I do have a YouTube Process Video for this layout, but it needs a voice over recorded. I hope to have it published on my YouTube Channel soon. In the meantime be sure to visit The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files & digital collections!
