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!

Happy Scrapping!

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!

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!

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!

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!
