The Cut Shoppe-We’re this Together

Hello!  Most people who follow me and my work know that I love to work with circles.  So anytime I have a chance to work with a circle cut file you know it is going to quickly become my new favorite!  Today is no different, I am in love with the new Geo Globe cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

To start the layout I brought the file into my Silhouette software and created a bunch of different sizes of the Geo Globe.  Next, I clustered the circles together and made sure they were slightly overlapping so I could weld them together and create one cut file.  I cut the file out of white cardstock then backed the file with some beautiful paper from Felicity Jane.

I wanted to create lots of dimension on the layout so I adhered dimensional adhesive to the back of the patterned paper.  I used a circle punch in 2″ and 3″ to cut few more circles out of various patterned paper and to cut out my photo.

For the additional circles I varied how much dimensional adhesive I used to create a little more interest and texture.

To finish off the layout I added a few chipboard circles and enamel dots along with a few coordinating word strips.  I used a simple date stamp to document the month our photo was taken.

Such a fun layout to create!  I love the mix of light and dark colors along with the vellum.  I also love that all the colors are connected by the repetition of circles.  Give this a try on your next layout and make sure that you tag The Cut Shoppe so we can swoon over your creations!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a beautiful day!
