cut file saturday: link and win!

Happy Saturday! Today on the Paper Issues blog the first monthly cut file is available as a free download. Each month a new cut file will be posted, and with it, a chance to win free product for using the cut in your own creative project. This month, play along, link up on the "Cut It Out" blog post link up and you'll be entered for a chance to win the November Paper Issues Swag Bag!

Here is my 12x12 layout using the cut file:

To create the layout I cut the full size Silhouette file from kraft paper then, chose several patterned Home + Made papers and cut those so that the circle would match up and pop right in the open spaces. Next, I printed several photos from our recent trip to the apple orchard at approximately 2" square. Using a 2" circle punch, I punched out each photo and added them in behind the cut file. The title is also a Silhouette cut created using a brush script font. The embellishments are a mix from my stash and the September PI Swag Bag, along with a piece of flair by Toni From Designs.

I hope this inspires you to scrap your own creation! Be sure to link back on the "Cut It Out" post for a chance to win.


woodn't you know, it's fall? :: an issue...

Hello all! The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of projects, fall activities, lovely autumn weather (my favorite) and family time. I have not shared here as I'd hoped but, have a line up of projects ready to post starting...now! Paper Issues started a brand new Issue and link party this Monday, themed for fall, using wood items, wood grain - any or all! You can read more about the issue here.

I'm linking up today with a pocket layout documenting our family trip to the pumpkin patch. This gorgeous place is just minutes from our home and provided such a fun afternoon. I have more photos and details that I'll be scrapping but, wanted to get to these few right away. I've used mostly Fancy Pants True Friend papers and MME Jubilee embellishments to create this page.

I hope you'll create a project of your own to join the Issue linky party! Need some new fall scrappy goodies? Use my code for 20% off your entire Paper Issue order...
