Darn It | Sunburst Heart Cutfile | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this ever so sad puppy layout featuring the beautiful Sunburst Heart cutfile. I thought that the Pinkfresh “Keeping It Real” collection was the perfect vibe for this tricky day for Blue.

I just had to do some hand sewing on this cutfile! I used a pale pink for the center of the heart and a nice aqua to back stitch around the entire cutfile. I love how it came together. I thought that the layout needed a bit more punch so I backed the bright yellow patterned paper with a gorgeous floral.

I layered embellishments by the same collection, grabbed some very old alphas and included some flair to bring it all together. I do love this one!

Good Times | Daisy Bough Cutfile | Simple Stories “Sunkissed”

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and bright layout that is also a scraplift of a gorgeous layout by our fearless leader, Gwen. I went after her signature style of a white background, bright pops of color and stitching around the border. I love that this Daisy Bough cutfile has a curve to nestle your photo right into.

You can see that I chose not to fully tack down the cutfile as I do so love the bit of dimension that you get from the shadow. I chose to use a black and white photo so that the Simple Stories “Sunkissed” collection would pop right off the page.

And here is the gorgeous layout that Gwen created:

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this fun and fresh layout featuring the Hexagon Frame Cut File layered over the Valentine Rose Cut Files. And look at these adorable photos of my daughter getting some fresh highlights!

I backed my Valentine Rose Cut Files with this gorgeous Summer collection by Carta Bella. The tones are just perfect and allow my photos to shine! I decided to add black and white twine around my clusters to add just a little bit more black here and there.

I am currently loving little shiny bits of flair, some splatty bits and tiny words to build out some clusters around and under my cutfiles.

Have the best scrappy day!

Summer Vibes | Scraplift | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! How awesome that we are celebrating the fab Gwen today with a YouTube hop and I get the honor of scraplifting her! Andddddd…..my assignment was summer so I just had to use this gorgeous “Summer Vibes” cutfile! I just had to use the gorgeous Simple Stories “Sunkissed” Collection to showcase this photo of my pup who wasn’t entirely sure about his new pool.

Look at how clean this cutfile cut! It was ever so easy to back and the patterned papers pop so well!

I finished off this sunny layout with some acrylic flair from Scrappin’ Happy Studio, some of the Simple Stories foam pieces and diecuts.

Happy Day | Ribbon and Roses Cutfile | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you a layout featuring a sassy swan friend. This fellow seemed a bit perturbed that I would dare encroach upon his space. I did grab a quick photo and let him go on his way. I used the Ribbon and Roses cutfile and cut it out in a mid-weight white textured cardstock. It cut beautifully!

I decided to use all Paige Evans goodies for this project from the new “Wonder” collection. The deep orange background allows the cutfile to really pop as well as highlighting Mr. Swan’s beak. I loved backing this cutfile with a bunch of different patterned papers and centering the whole design.

I do so enjoy how the photo nestles right into the top of the ribbon! We have so many beautiful floral files in the shop, make sure you pop over and check them out!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this silly layout featuring my girl getting her hair all fancy! I doubled up on cutfiles this time using both the Hexagon Frame cutfile as well as the Valentine Rose cutfile. I think that they look fantastic together!

I wanted to use a gorgeous collection and Summer collection by Carta Bella doesn’t disappoint. Look at how fantastic these tones are with the Valentine Rose cutfile!

The Valentine Rose cutfile is popped up on dimensional adhesive and lots of the gorgeous floral bits from Carta Bella are tucked beneath the photo cluster as well as on the upper right. I used some gorgeous flair from Scrappin’ Happy Studio with a lemon vibe and wrapped a bit of black and white twine around them for contrast. And finally, I used some Shimmerz products for splatty bits. I’m smitten with this layout!

Love You More | Heart You More | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this layout featuring the Heart You More cutfile. I chose to cut the cardstock in a nice bright white and filled in the letters with a gorgeous patterned paper from Amy Tangerine.

I am loving Nuvo Mist right now and applied a liberal amount of splatty bits to the deep blue background. I used a fab sequin mix for the large hearts in the title for a bit of pizazz!

You can see here that I layered a sentiment, a directional sticker and an adorable puffy hexi in this cluster for interest. I love that a large cutfile can dictate the design and direction for your entire layout!

Check out the versatility of this cutfile. You can fill all of the sweet little hearts in or leave them as a bold contrast like I did!

I’d be honored if you took a looksee at my process video here:

I hope that you have the best scrappy day!

Happy Days | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! It’s Shannon up on the blog today bringing you this ever so delicious layout featuring the Happy Days cutfile as well as a photo of my daughter and myself at the best cookie store ever!

I used the Happy Days Cutfile twice because it was just so cute! The patterned paper background is popped up on foam to add a nice bit of shadow.

I inset all of the little bits and pieces of the cutfile onto the base of the layout. I love the dimension!

Be sure to check out all of the gorgeous cutfiles in the SHOP!

Wonders | Shannon Allor

Hello friends! What could be better than your daughter bringing you flowers? Absolutely nothing! Well maybe creating a layout with the beautiful Rose Builder cutfile!

I started off by using a gorgeous background by Paige Evans. I lightly matted the photos of the bouquets and then started layering up these gorgeous roses. I used a combination of Shimmerz Paints products to enhance the cutfile and really play into the gorgeous colors in the photos. Once my roses were dry, I backed them with a bit of vellum that I had on hand.

I had the best time creating this layout! I do so hope that you are inspired to layer up this gorgeous cutfile and have some fun scrappy time of your own!
