The Cut Shoppe & Pinkfresh Studio

This week The Cut Shoppe has teamed up with Pinkfresh Studio for a fun holiday product swap. 

For my project, I decided to take on the task of creating the introduction page to my December Daily album for 2015. The opening pages to my album set the tone of the album and I wanted to make them extra special. It is the first thing you see when opening the album and I want it to be like opening a gift on Christmas morning (at least, that's what I am shooting for!). With the combination of Pinkfresh Studio's Christmas Wishes Collection and the new Home for Christmas cut file from The Cut Shoppe, I had an easy time putting together the beginning of my December album.

As you can see, I created a two page introduction because I had so much that I wanted to incorporate. Instead of limiting myself, I cut down a 6x8 pocket page and filled it with lots of goodies from Pinkfresh to layer over my "main" page: 

I cut the Home for Christmas background out of textured white cardstock and mounted it on top of the bright red patterned paper from Pinkfresh with pop dots. I had originally planned to just lay it flat on top, but the added dimension made a huge visual difference. After that I went to town layering some of my favorite die cuts from the Christmas Wishes collection in the lower right corner.

One of the main reasons I wanted to include a pocket page was so that I could include some of the 2x2 acetate squares from the Christmas Wishes collection. I really like to play around with transparant pockets in my albums because I think it is fun to see a peak at what is comeing next.

This page ended up being a mix of patterned paper, acetate squares, and embellishments.

Now for the really fun part:

In celebration of this fun team up, The Cut Shoppe is giving away a Pinkfresh Studio goodie bag on The Cut Shoppe Blog and Pinkfresh Studio is giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to TCS on their Blog.  ONE winner will be chosen from all of the comments this week, so make sure you comment each day on both Blogs.  Winners will be announced on DECEMBER 6TH! 

Here's a look at all of the new sets, which include the Home for Christmas cut file that I used, that are now available at The Cut Shoppe.
