*{Magic Moment}* | The Cut Shoppe

Happy Tuesday! It's The Cut Shoppe share time, I'm sharing a layout with you today featuring "The Working Title" & "The Picture Perfect" cut files:




Thanks for taking a look at my layout! I love the fonts and how easy it is to work with Ashley's files! This is probably one of my favorite pictures that I've ever gotten of Mack, Molly and Sarah. They are the sweetest girls and they were celebrating a victory, they were all smiles,  the lighting was perfect, it truly was a magic moment.

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm sharing a wintry spring layout with you featuring files from The Cut Shoppe....because it's still very much winter here in Michigan. We are having what you would call, fake news spring. Luckily, my daughter Mackenzie loves snow, cold and winter as much as I do. As you can see from Rock's less than enthused expression, he does not share this love, but he loves his girl and is obliging her.

You'll find The Love Struck cut file set and The Word of Mouth cut file set featured on this layout:


Here's a close up of the "Word of Mouth" set:

❤{DIY Planner Stickers with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L}❤


I'm sharing my first post with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L with you today! I'm excited to share with you because it involves a little DIY. I'm talking planner stickers. DIY planner stickers. 

Shannon Morgan  DIY Planner Stickers

I made these planner stickers using cardstock, my Silhouette and Adhesive Sheets (12X12) from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

I created stickers using a template I found online, you can do a search and find a free template compatible with your cutting machine.  Here's the template I used. I used patterns, fills and fonts I had in my library to create these stickers. You can get as detailed as you like...or you can keep it simple.

Once you have created your stickers,  print them out. Tip: Make sure you add the registration marks, or the designs won't cut correctly and all of your hard work will have been for nothing. 

Ok so, another tip...don't do what I did here and waste precious adhesive (like I did)...trim the 12X12 ahead of time to the size you're working with, in my case it was 8.5X11...I just left this because I wanted to show you that even designers make mistakes. Smooth your cardstock to the adhesive sheet, getting rid of bubbles. Set aside.


Once you've printed out your stickers and adhered them to the Adhesive Sheets, they're ready for the "cut" step.


After the sheets are cut, you're ready to add them to your planner...so go forth and plan! Use them all, use only some, save them for later, the options are endless at this point since you created them on your own! 

Here's a few close ups of the planner stickers in my planner:


Thanks for letting me share this fun project with you, hope you learned a little, or are inspired to create your own planner stickers!! Make sure you're checking out the Scrapbook Adhesives blog for great inspiration from our team!

Hope everyone is having a great week! Shannon here, bringing you my first post for The Cut Shoppe! To say I am excited is an understatement! There are so many awesome files to choose from that I didn't even know where to begin. ❤

So I started with a favorite part of my life, my dogs.

Here's a close up of the title and the hearts, I didn't add anything behind the hearts because I wanted the hearts to serve as the "background"

Release week is in full swing for Beth Duff Designs! 

Are you keeping up? (I know, right?) Today the release is featuring the "I'd Rather be Glamping" set. You will love the variety in this set, and the quote! You'll want to grab this set. I used it in a bit of a different way, but that's the beauty of Beth's stamps sets, she makes sure they're full of versatility. I took a very different approach with my project and applied it to bible journaling. I even used non traditional colors. Creativity is yours. Thanks for taking a look!

I'm helping kick off this week by sharing a bible journaling entry using the "Grace is Enough" set, this is just a glimpse of the release! Thank you for taking a look!

This set is wonderful, the lines are crisp, the sentiments are multi-functional and very up-lifting. They may be simple in message, but they are perfect for many kinds of projects and cards. The branches included in the set, pictured here were just right for a "Palm Sunday" entry into my bible.
