The bright and vibrant colors in this kit will take you back to all those happy moments captured at home or abroad. From trendy watercolor painted papers, to beautiful cityscape postcards and a wide assortment of embellishments, this kit is perfect for creating gorgeous layouts, wall art, mixed media projects, and many more!

The kit contains:

  • 48 sheets of 12″x12″ patterned paper (two of each design)
  • One 8.5″x11″ cardstock sticker sheet
  • Two 6″x12″ alphabet puffy sticker sheets
  • 20 8.5″x3.5″ watercolor cityscape postcards
  • One 2×3 photopolymer clear stamp set
  • 20 epoxy buttons with adhesive back
  • 34 cardstock and acetate die cuts
  • 12 origami wood veneer shapes
  • Two white resin decorative frames
  • One 8.5″ x 11″ chipboard sticker sheet
  • One rubber roller stamp

For my layout I was inspired by the intense color of the watercolor painted flowers on one of the patterned papers:

I fussy cut the gorgeous roses and added some other black and white ones to give some contrast and create more interest on the page.

I love all the ephemera pieces included in the kit. The origami wood veneer shapes are so fun and versatile.

The epoxy buttons, as well as the cardstock stickers and die-cuts, complement the design beautifully.

The Cut Shoppe – Carpe Diem

Hello, scrappy friends. I’m back today with a layout for The Cut Shoppe featuring the awesome Around my heart cut file. I love background cut files. They inspire me and, most of the time, are the starting point for my layouts. I used the Pink Paislee Take me away collection for this page.

I have to admit, the cut file did most of the work for me. I only backed a few circles with different patterned papers and embellished here and there trying to achieve a tone-on-tone look.

I picked a black and white picture to balance the colorful background and added some layers behind it for extra texture.

I love the final result. The Around my heart cut file made this layout come together in no time. If you have never used a background cut file, this is the perfect time to give it a try. Starting today through November 28th you can get everything in The Cut Shoppe Etsy store for 50% off. How awesome is that???
