The Cut Shoppe & Simple Stories

This month I had the pleasure of working with the Pumpkin Spice Collection from Simple Stories for The Cut Shoppe and Simple Stories Product Swap Week!

For both of my layouts, I used newly released cut files from The Cut Shoppe. This first one features the fun Leaf It To Me cut file:

In my opinion, fall scrapping isn't quite complete without my annual falling leaf layout. There is just something so fun and whimsical about leaves floating down a page. Mix those leaves with the autumn colors of the Pumpkin Spice patterned papers and you have a recipe for a delightful fall page.

Happy Fall

I like to layer my leaves to mimic how you would find them outside. To keep them from looking flat I use a minimal amount of adhesive-just enough to keep them from falling off the page.

For my second project, I wanted to feature the fun new I Heart Plaid cut file. 

The I Heart Plaid cut file is a large design that can be resized for your needs, on your scrapbooking and papercrafting projects.

I decided to use the heart as a focal point to bring the attention straight to this photo of my little daughter. To do this, I resized the cut file in my Silhouette so that it was roughly the size of my 3x4 photo. By simply layering it under my photo the eye is drawn straight to where I want it to go.


Besides the fun colors in Pumpkin Spice, I really enjoyed using the co-ordinating stickers and die cuts, particularly the pretty vase and flowers.

  1. Great layouts. Love Simple Stories, they always have awesome paper. Even though I don't have a machine, I for like the designs at the Cut Shoppe. I'll have to go over and see if there are any fun printables I can get. Thanks for sharing your awesome layouts, love the layering of the leaves and heart with the photo. Michelle t
