Hello Spring | The Cut Shoppe

Hi friends! I’m back with you today to share a new layout that was recently on The Cut Shoppe Blog using the Up & Down Background Cut File & the Spring Fever Cut File.

12x12 scrapbook layout for The Cut Shoppe Design team using the Up & Down Background Cut File & the Spring Fever Cut File, Maggie Holmes Butterflies, and lots of Pinkfresh Studio product.

I cut the Up & Down Background Cut File on white cardstock and then stamped the cardstock with the stamp set from the Pinkfresh Studio Dream On Collection. I made sure to use an archival ink because I wanted to add watercolor to the stamped images.

After the watercolor was dry I started embellishing my layout. I positioned my photo along with patterned papers & the embellishments from the Pinkfresh Studio Felicity Collection and butterflies from Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection,

This is just a photo of me lounging in our hammock on a warm Spring day. I don’t know how you feel, but I feel like this was the LONGEST WINTER EVER! I’m normally a fan of cold, rainy days, but this year I think I’m going to soak up as much sunshine as I can get. Or at least until it gets too hot! HA!

My title is cut in bright pink cardstock using the Spring Fever Cut File. I then started adhering everything to the yellow cardstock background. I used a lot of fun foam and pop dots on both of the cut file images to add depth and shadows. I added my journaling using the We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter and cut it into 3 strips.

Now you can take a look at how my process video to see how this layout came together.

I love the bright Spring colors on this layout and am really happy with how it turned out! Remember to head to The Cut Shoppe Etsy Store to check out all of the cut files! Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me!

For my layout I started with a white cardstock background and added a wash of blue acrylic paint. I then positioned multiple die cuts from the It’s Your Birthday Printable around the layout to create a grid design. My photos are 3 photos of Aidan that were taken in 2010. I had brought birthday balloons home from work, and you would have thought I brought home the best present in the world! That kiddo has pure joy just written all over his face!

I used two triangles from the printable and wanted to add another triangle element to the layout. So I took a scrap piece of paper and created a triangle template. I then used a pencil to trace the template and then stitched over those lines to add another layer of texture the background.

I used my We R Memory Keepers Typecast Typewriter to add the journaling to the layout and also used a roller stamp from my stash to add a couple fun sentiments to the labels.
