Posted by swewi on August 25, 2014


Today is a very special day – Creative Scrappers DT is teaming up with The Cut Shoppe DT! Yep – two of my teams are getting together on this fortnights sketch. So cool!!! Everyone in the Creative Scrappers team got cut files from The Cut Shoppe to play with – me, I already have them all HA HA!

So make sure you play along with sketch #276, Ashley from The Cut Shoppe will be offering a $20 prize to her shoppe to one lucky winner who participates with sketch 276 and submits it by August 31st!!!

Here’s the sketch:


Now I have to admit, sketches like this scare me a bit. I am a white space kind of scrapper as you all know!!!

Well, here is my LO, and I have of course used the new lovely August kit from Crazy Monday Kits:


I have used the following cut files from The Cut Shoppe: “You’ve been punc’d“, “Straight as an Arrow” & “Stars & Stripes“. Do you have a favourite in the shop??

Here are a few detail shots of the LO!
