BE Awesome. BE You! {The Cut Shoppe meets Neat & Tangled!}

Woah! I hope you are having fun checking out all the fun on The Cut Shoppe Blog today! We are partnering up with Neat & Tangled and using our cut files and their lovely stamps! I have such a fun set to use!

Again, I am addicted to white space and I LOVE this kraft paper I used for the B E. The little arrow and the words are from the stamp set provided to me by Neat & Tangled. It has so many little bitty words that I think I’ll be using it quite often!

I Heart String Art: Fun Run

In an effort to fight off the winter blah’s I decided to brighten things up a little! I used the I Heart String Art cut file from The Cut Shoppe on this layout. I cut the star out to fill most of the page and then traced the outside of the star onto another piece of white card stock. I watercolor painted within the parameters of the star and once it was dry attached the star to the layout.

funrunI added a few digital printable elements to the page, Thicker letters and heart, colored thread, and a veneer ‘family’ to finish it off. I added a little watercolor paint spatter after everything was dry.

My family ran a 5K on the 4th of July a few years ago (I’m slowly catching up!) and I really wanted to a family photo in our album to commemorate the event!

Thanks for looking!

Love & Learn (and Spread Your Wings)

Thanks for visiting my blog today! I’m sharing my layout I made with the Spread Your Wings cut file from The Cut Shoppe!

Have you ever had one of those magical, fleeting moments where something happens that makes everything else disappear? This is a photo of exactly that. My two boys and I were on our way home from running errands and we stopped at the neighbors house for a few minutes. While we were standing outside chatting this happened. We live in the woods and neither of them are strangers to nature. They are actually quite comfortable with most of it.

The bits and pieces are from my stash and my Paper Issues Swag Bags, the acrylic LOVE is from Color Cast Designs.


Here is my post over at The Cut Shoppe explaining my process and how I put this together. I would love for you to stop by and take a peek!  Thanks for visiting!

All You Need Is LOVE & A Dog

Today I’m over at The Cut Shoppe Blog sharing the layout I made using the Give A Dog A Bone Cut File!


So, there’s this glitter paper and it has polka dots and turns it out it is a fabulous accessory for my black lab Ellie!  I used the swag bag from the Paper Issues store for all of the other bits featured on the page. Ashley’s files cut like butter and I was a little concerned about the challenge of glitter paper because I’ve never cut it before, but as you can see – PERFECTION!

Thanks for visiting! Be sure and check out the shoppe and the blog for tons of inspiration!

SANTA! I Know Him!! {on the Cut Shoppe Blog}

Hello Peeps!

Sharing my Santa! Layout using cut files from The Cut Shoppe today! Be sure and stop over at the blog and check it out!

I think you’ll LOVE the Buddy The Elf files, I know I did and I’ll be using them frequently!  Ashley is so talented and her cut files are beautiful and versatile! There are so  many already for the holiday season and they are perfect for your projects!  Check me out here at the Cut Shoppe Blog! The paper product line you are seeing here (which I ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!) is Oh, Deer! by Fancy Pants Design. I have and love this entire line because there are non-traditional colors mixed in! I’m such a sucker for turquoise and green!
