The Cut Shoppe – Thanksgiving Cards

Happy Thanksgiving week! I can’t believe it’s already here!

For today’s post, I have decided to create a set of cards that are perfect for this time of the year. I used two new cut files included in the Thanks And Giving set, as well as some leaves from the Autumn Acres set.

The first card is very simple. I backed the beautiful Give Thanks design with several patterned papers from the Heart of Home collection. I didn’t add much around it, other than the cluster in the left lower corner, as I didn’t want to take away from the elegant cut file. I just made the cluster a little bit fuller with some leaves from the Autumn Acres cut file set and fussy cut roses.

The second card allowed me to incorporate lots of patterned papers from the same collection. I love cut files like this one. They are versatile and fun.

I used foam dots to adhere it down for added dimension and embellished it with some fussy cut daisies and enamel dots.

Pink Paislee – Thanksgiving: Give Thanks Layout

Hello Pink Paislee friends! Enza here, and today I’m excited to share a Thanksgiving layout with you. To celebrate the people I am most thankful for in my life, I decided to go big with a title that takes up most of the page. I wanted it to make a statement and give the idea of what the layout is about at once.

Enza Gudor - November 20th - StyledI started by cutting the title out of the gorgeous floral patterned paper in the Turn the Page collection. I knew I wanted to stitch all around it, but I was short on time. I had to find an easier and faster way to create my stitching pattern. Instead of manually pocking the holes along the edge of the cut file, I decided to let my Silhouette do all the work. The trick here is to create an outline around the image you want to stitch and then make it into a dotted line before sending it to cut. Easy peasy! Stitching on paper has always been an enjoyable pastime for me. I also love the texture and definition it adds to my projects!

I picked a different colored thread for each of the letters as I wanted to make the title pop a little more. Once the background was ready, I worked on building several layers behind the picture. I used lots of die cuts, wood veneers, stickers, as well as fussy cut flowers and leaves.

The Cut Shoppe – Fall Love

Hello everyone! I am back to share a new layout with some awesome cut files from The Cut Shoppe. The Fall theme is still going strong for me. I love this time of the year so much, I just want it to last forever. I combined two cut files on my page: Wreathed in Love and Fall Foliage.

I often try to combine cut files to give them a new look. Nothing wrong with just using them as they are, but I find it’s fun to figure out how you can modify them a little to get something unique. Here I just welded two of the images together to make the leaf look as if it was part of the wreath. I then backed the same leaf with two different patterned papers from the Pebbles Heart Of Home collection, which is one of my favorites at the moment.

I fussy cut lots of flowers as well as some leaves, and arranged them in clusters around the cut file.

On the top right corner of the page I added a few sequins for color and interest. I also repeated the sequins around the leaf to bring the design together.
