Sparklers Blog Hop with Cuts2Luv!
Hello crafty people! The Sparklers are teaming up for a very special blog hop today! We are so excited to announce our product swap with the fabulous flair shop, Cuts2luv! We have been planning this for a long time and here it is! Caroline from Cuts2Luv is awesome and you can check out her shop HERE.
You should have arrived here from Sandra's blog, I'm sure you enjoyed her amazing project!
Today I am sharing a fun 8.5x11 layout that I created using a cut file, some of my leftover December Daily stash and a few flairs from Cuts2Luv! Here it is:
I started with a cut file from The Cut Shoppe and embellished with ephemera from Crate Paper Snow and Cocoa and from the Hip Kit Club November kits. I used the American Crafts Texture White Card Stock from the shop to cut the file out. I adhered it down with my ER Runner Grand. I stitched the title on using gold thread in my sewing machine.
I filled a Small Glassine Bag with the gorgeous Build A Snowman sequin mix and sewed it shut with my sewing machine. I added my photo on top and tucked a puffy sticker and a glitter snowflake sticker behind it. I also added the beautiful snowflake flair from Cuts2Luv on top of the photo.
Stamped the date on with my Becky Higgins Roller Date Stamper and added a few splats of Heidi Shine in Black and Gold. I fussy cut a few trees from a patterned paper from Snow and Cocoa. I also used some Tombow Mono Multi Adhesive to glue on a couple of acrylic stars from Colorcast Designs.
I made a fun embellishment cluster using a glitter snowflake, a snowflake paper die cut and another one of the the incredible flairs from Cuts2Luv. Here, I embellished with a glitter enamel dot, a Kaisercraft gem and a chipboard star.
I made one last cluster similar to the one on the bottom of the layout and embellished it in a similar fashion. I used foam dots to make the little Christmas tree stand out.
To find the SMS products I used on my layout and to get some free cut files head over to the SMS shop HERE!
