It's SILHOUETTE WEEK on the American Crafts blog! If you've been reading this here blog for even just a couple weeks, you'll know I fancy my Silhouette CAMEO :)

DESCRIPTION: I like to use a lot of patterned papers on my layouts so I went in search of a background cut file that had a bunch of pieces to it. Enter the Woodgrain Mask / Background by Sarah Hurley - Design ID #48093
HOW TO: Die cut the Woodgrain Mask / Background by Sarah Hurley - Design ID #48093 from scratch cardstock then lightly adhere it, centered onto white cardstock. Die cut every section from the woodgrain background from a different patterned paper then carefully adhere (some with dimensional adhesive) the pieces inside the template on the white cardstock. Carefully remove the template. Trim photos to fit in three sections. Stitch Thickers in place by the photos for a title and embellish with die cuts, epoxy stickers, fabric stickers, and more. Drop dark grey spray mist around the photos to finish.

SUPPLIES: Cardstock, patterned paper, Thickers, stickers, die cuts, enamel shapes, adhesive: American Crafts; Spray mist: Studio Calico; Sewing machine: Brother; Thread: Coats & Clark; Die cut machine: Silhouette CAMEO; Woodgrain cut file: Woodgrain Mask / Background by Sarah Hurley - Design ID #48093
