Sushi Love *The Cut Shoppe

Hi Everyone,
I have a layout up on The Cut Shoppe blog today using a couple of really fun cut files.


Sushi Love Layout













To create the fun background I used the It Adds Up 8.5x11 cut file and added some fun pattern papers and hand stitching to accentuate the plus signs.




To create my title, I used the Sushi Love cut from the Food For Thought cut file.


To pick up these fun files, stop by The Cut Shoppe Etsy store.

Today Layout *The Cut Shoppe DT

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to share my first official The Cut Shoppe DT layout with you!  


Today Layout
I love using big bold statement pieces on my layouts.  Once I enlarged the Going In Circles cut file and backed it with different pieces of coordinating patterned papers, it became just that :)





For my first layout this month I used the Going in Circles cut file (enlarged) and the Say Anything cut file to create the title.






I am having so much fun with these cut files and can't wait to share more upcoming projects with you! 
You can see all the other amazing files in The Cut Shoppe Store!

Don't forget to play along with our monthly challenge for a chance to win a $10 GC to the store!  Here are the details! Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Birthday Layouts with American Crafts

Hi everyone,

I'm back again today with more birthday themed projects.  Last week - I had a total of 4 projects up on the American Crafts blog, but was traveling so I'm trying to play catch up now.

I like my birthday themed layouts to be as fun and full of life as the birthday subjects themselves.  The Amy Tangerine Plus one collection features embellishments and papers that breathe fun into your layouts.


15 Layout

I used the photo frame dies (included in the Amy Tan Plus One Associate pack) as the main focus of my layout.  After that, everything came together in a snap.  I added in a few punched banner pieces and tags taken from the super adorable sticker roll and strung them along using Plus One clothespins and AC twine.  I just love how it came out!
Supplies:  Pal Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66809) - Plus One, Date Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66811) - Plus One, Twosome Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66820) - Plus One, Pair Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66821) - Plus One, Amy Tangerine Plus one 6x6 (366829) - Paper Pads, Plus One Associate (366860) - Dies, Amy Tan Plus One Clothespins (366907) - Whittles, Team Sticker Roll (366838) - Plus One, Amy Tangerine Plus One Washi Tape (366839) - Mixtape, Stars Red & Pink (ESS-CHP-32095) - Essentials, Stars Blue and Aqua (ESS-CHP-32098) - Essentials, To That (AM617-13) - Adhesive, Pool (AM710-69) - Cardstock, Triangle Banner Dear Lizzy (KOP63123) - Punches, Baker's Twine Brights (366303) - Premium Ribbon























Happy Birthday Layout
I had this idea in my head of doing a pie chart themed layout.  I had these pictures of Matthew from his birthday a couple years back, and everything just quickly came together.

Supplies:  Companion Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66824) - Plus One, Combo Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66804) - Plus One, Buddy Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66812) - Plus One, Copilot Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66810) - Plus One, Partner Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66814) - Plus One,  Patterned Paper (PLUDS-66810) - Plus One, Blue & Aqua (ESS-CHP-32098) - Essentials, Cameras (ESS-CHP-32090) - Essentials, To That (AM617-13) - Adhesive, Pool (AM710-81) - Cardstock, Match Aqua (PLUTH-66833) - Thickers, Amy Tan Plus One (366906) - Flair, Mini Marks Rub-ons (366844) Accents & Phrases, Chalkboard Pennant (366625) - Toothpicks,
