New Cut Files + Layout Share + Contest Reminder

I have a few new cut files in my shop and thought I'd share them with you today. The first is called Dash Background.

Here is a layout I created with it. In my shop, it's shown vertically, but here I've used it horizontally and I think it looks good both ways.

I cut it out of white cardstock and layered it on top of a piece of patterned paper. Then I stitched through each "dash". Really love that subtle detail.

The other new cut file is called So Circles - named that because each phrase starts with the word so. I've sized them just right for titles or large accents, but you could make them fill the page or scale them down for smaller embellishment as well.

I really like binge-cutting a bunch of stuff on my Silhouette at once, so I tend to cut out of white cardstock or watercolor paper. It allows me the flexibility to color my cut files to match my layout, like I did here. I just used some inexpensive watercolors.

I stitched around the outer circle and again, love the subtle detail of the white stitches.

You can find both of these cut files (and many more) in my shop. I also did a little video to show you the cut files and layouts in a bit more detail.

I also wanted to remind you of a few CONTESTS I have going on, one of which ends TODAY! The first is a photo contest at You just need to upload a photo that perfectly depicts a relationship. This is the photo I's one of my favorites of all time.

After you upload your photo, be sure to vote on your favorite - the winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to my shop. This one ends today, April 11, 2016!

The second is for my Inspiration is Everywhere series. You need to leave a comment on this blog post or this video telling me which layout/video you liked the most and you'll be entered to win a $20 gift certificate to

Good luck! And, as always, thanks so much for stopping by. It really humbles me whenever people choose to spend their time with me. :)

  1. Scrap pictures are the best! I know that many of you think to make media scrapbooks yourselves. I think that this web site will truly help you edit your photos.
