The Cut Shoppe

Recently I played along with The Cut Shoppe Blog Hop.. I was lucky and won a file from them on Gina's blog.. You can see all Ashley's files here https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCutShoppe?ref=ss_profile.. I had been watching this blog for a wee while so when the August Challenge came up i decided to give it ago. The requirements are as follows.*Create a layout using AT LEAST ONE of the Cut Files, that can be purchased from The Cut Shoppe Etsy store, based on the following Sketch:

So i played around for quite a while, i have to convert the png files as i dont have designer edition on my cameo..
Esther helps me a lot and for that i am thankful, my go to Girl...Its a pain in the butt having to do the conversion thingy but i have my trusty journal with notes to refer back to..

Here is the LO.. On a white piece of Cardstock i cut the banners out from a file in my library, then backed them with some PP. Using a sheet of double sided adhesive I cut the hearts border from this file.. https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/196672172/the-borderlines-cut-file-consists-of-5?ref=shop_home_feat_2
i then peeled the backing paper sprinkled gold glitter over then separated the border in to single hearts.. Its not perfect, but im happy with how this turned out..Thats a strip of washi tape down the side and i added a couple of splatters of indian ink some dots and punched out hearts.. Happy that i got to play with my cameo and ironed out a couple of issues i have been having with it..
