The Cut Shoppe Halloween Blog Hop!

Hello, friends, and welcome to The Cut Shoppe Halloween Blog Hop!

The Design Team has some amazing inspiration, fun cut file giveaways and a $25 Gift Certificate to The Cut Shoppe Giveaway!  Make sure you visit each Designer's Blog because we will each be giving away one of our favorite Fall/Halloween cut files during the Hop, which ends November 2nd.  And we also have a FREE Halloween cut file to share with you, too!

The Blog Hop starts at The Cut Shoppe's Blog, so start there. Here is the list of designers' blogs:

Here are the cut file sets I used:

I used one of my favorite cut files....the Leaf it to Me file. I created this fun "Fall" page using Cedar Lane from Pink Paislee. This picture cracks me up. My daughter loves leaves, and she found her favorite ones on this day and wanted to go swimming with them. She didn't want to get them wet, so she kept holding them up. It just makes me smile, and I had to document it.

I used some white gesso on the background and then added some gelatos and spray inks. The leaves were all I really wanted behind the photo besides a few layers. I added gold stitching and a few embellishments to finish it off. 

These leaves are amazing!  I just cut a few on patterned paper.  Here, I added more gelatos to the bottom of the layout, more stitching, and more tangled thread.  I love the purple, blue and gold mix of colors here.

Purple is usually a difficult color to scrap with, but I love this shade in this collection!  And it's perfect for Fall leaves :)

One more close up of the title.  I also used the A to the Z alpha set here for part of my title.  I paired it up with some gold glitter Thickers and my own handwriting.


I'm going to give away this awesome cut file to one of you!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this blog post tell me your favorite thing about Fall!  I'll chose a winner after November 2nd and it will be announced on The Cut Shoppe's blog on November 6th.

There is also a $25 Gift Certificate up for grabs to The Cut Shoppe!  In order to win that one, you need to leave a comment on The Cut Shoppe's blog by November 2nd and tell us your favorite Fall or Halloween tradition! 

Be sure to download the FREE cut file on The Cut Shoppe's blog while you're there!

Have a great time hopping, and thanks for stopping by!
