Silhouette Design Team Projects #4

Time for another round of awesome creations from my Silhouette team!
Audrey Yeager says, "I used the Pumpkin Trio cut file to make a large pumpkin stencil for my background and used some inks and water to fill it in. Then I cut the Bats Background from a purple Take Me Away patterned paper and trimmed them out. I cut more pumpkins from the Pumpkin Trio using Oh My Heart patterned papers. Finally, I added some black and white washi to the edges to bring in more of a Halloween feel."
Next up is Bea Valint! She says, "I wanted to show you a fun way that you can create easy and beautiful texture on your cards. I used four different background cut files and the Turn the Page 6x6 Paper Pad for creating these colorful cards. Due to the smaller size of the cards, I had to reduce the size of the cut files too. To avoid the thin lines, I cut out a part of the background cut files using the knife tool, and used only the divided part. I backed the cut files with patterned paper and embellished the cards with fussy cut stars and butterflies. I adhered my cards to colored cardstock to finish. It was so much fun to create, I hope I could inspire you to use background cut files on your next cards!"
How stunning is this layout by Zsoka Marko?! Here is some information about it: "I've used the Ampersand cut file and the beautiful Turn the Page collection for this one. About a year ago I made a layout using an ampersand cut file that I really liked so when I saw this cut file I thought I'd lift that layout. I sometimes do this, recreate an older layout and put a different spin on it! It will always look different anyway because I'm using different supplies, plus they go into different albums anyway, so I'm not too bothered that I have similar layouts. Also, I have to mention, the ampersand itself has absolutely no relation to my photos or topic of the layout in this case, it's purely a design element. I'm a bit random aren't I?!"
Here is what Lorilei Murphy has to say about her colorful and fun layout: "I love Paige's 'cut and fold' designs! There are hearts, stars, butterflies, and snowmen! For this layout I actually cut the Cut and Fold Hearts twice. The first time with plain white cardstock and the second time I used the rainbow striped paper from Turn the Page. I folded the hearts on each of the papers and then I slipped the rainbow paper hearts into the cut side of the white paper and folded the rainbow hearts back. I stitched a line through each row of hearts and fluffed up the edges. I trimmed around the heart paper and mounted it on a pretty pink paper from Turn the Page. I went to town with Turn the Page embellishments and used a title from the Take Me Away collection. Along the edge of the page I tucked in my journaling and a few more embellishments!"
Can't wait to be back with more of their projects!! They are AWESOME!!
