Hello Evan

DCWV had a sketch challenge for December so I put it to use to create a layout for my niece's calendar featuring her son Evan.

I used the Seaside Yacht collection from DCWV and the Hello Let's Chat cut file from The Cut Shoppe.

The Cut Shoppe

I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Ashley today on  The Cut Shoppe blog!!!

There are so many fabulous cut files in the store that it was extremely difficult to decide which ones to use on my layout. In the end I chose the chevron tree in this cut file
and the word family from this cut file.
I enlarged the chevron tree and cut it out on the left side of my layout. I then backed each cut out row on the tree with patterned paper. I then added a variety of sequins, rhinestones, glittery enamel dots to decorate my tree. Fun...right?
The word family from Thankful Tidings was perfect to use in my title. It's all about getting together with family at Christmas.
Cardstock: AC
PP: The Paper Studio, Jillibean Soup
Stickers: Jillibean Soup, Bella Blvd, Heidi Swapp
Bling: Prima, MME, Recollections, Paper Studio
Cutfile: The Cut Shoppe
Other: wood veneer, machine stitiching
Here are a couple more close-ups.

Thank you Ashley for this opportunity and for your amazing cut-files!
Please go check out The Cut Shoppe everyone.
