LOVE US by Paige Evans
Description: I may not be creating layouts monthly for Studio Calico anymore (queue sad violin music now :) but I'm still designing monthly cut files! I decided to give one a go on this layout - the Ampersands background cut file for Odyssey kits:
How to: Draw the Ampersand background cut file using a black Silhouette sketch pen and a Silhouette CAMEO on a light gray cardstock background. Cut smaller ampersands from most of the patterned papers in the Rise & Shine collection by the lovely Amy Tangerine and adhere them in place. Layer a photo over a tag and die cuts and add other embellishments such as wood veneer, epoxy stickers, more die cuts, etc., slightly off-center. Trim the "love us" from a chipboard frame and tuck it under the photo for a title. Journal on a transparency sticker with a black pen layered over white cardstock to help it stand out. Drop black India ink over the layout to finish.
Supplies: Cardstock (gray, white), patterned paper, stickers, die cuts, wood veneer, chipboard, pen, adhesive: American Crafts; India ink: ProArt; Die cut machine: Silhouette CAMEO; Silhouette pen: Sketch pen by Silhouette; Ampersand background cut file: Paige Evans for Studio Calico
Whelp! That's all for now!
