Pink Fresh Studio & The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop with Aimee Maddern

Welcome to the 2nd day of the Pinkfresh Studio & The Cut Shoppe product swap hop!
I was so excited when Kinnari asked me to be a part of this hop!
 I hadnt had a chance to play with Christmas Wishes and was totally dying too!

Since I am on both teams, I felt I needed to make 2 layouts to show you how fun both companies products are.

For my first layout "Target Dog" I used all the images from the very merry cut file. I resized the images to fit in a 6x6 square so I could get 4 sets of cuts from 1 12x12. I also deleted the dot snowflake and added another deer in that space 
{I flipped the deer horizontally so he would be facing the other way}. 
I cut these images from the 12x12 color block sheet from Christmas Wishes

I knew I wanted to make a layout with a circle and stitching. I drew my circle by tracing a bowl; I stitched around the traced line. I then mixed some cardstock die cuts from Christmas Wishes and the cuts from The Cut Shoppe. The ones I planned to use 3-D foam I took off, and stitched the ones with out foam. After the second round of stitching I placed the die cuts with foam onto the layout for that added, pop
For a finishing touch I placed some puffy stickers, acrylic pieces and rubber embellishments!

For my 2nd layout, Red Cup Selfie, I cut down the 12x12 sheet with the house and trees. I then cut the dot snowflake from the “verymerry” cut file from the same sheet. I then adhered this sheet to a piece of black 12x12 cardstock.

I backed my photo from a piece from the 6x6 Christmas Wishes paper pack. I used the left over cuts I made for my other layout and used die cuts & puffy stickers to create the Christmas scene at the bottom of my page.

I honestly cant tell you which of these 2 layouts is my fave!
