Hello all! I have a fun layout to share with you today! It uses my Cameo and one of my favorite brands ever...Webster's Pages. Webster's Pages had a challenge up on their blog to get trendy and use die cuts on your layout. They are right, cutting with your Cameo (or similar machine) is very in right now.
I personally love all the cool things you can do with your Cameo. Although, I will admit, I haven't used it as much as I want to because I get frustrated. I feel like I must be doing it all wrong because most the time I can't get it to work right. I can get it to cut my kraft cardstock perfectly. Yeah! But if I want to cut patterned paper, it either doesn't cut through the whole paper and I have to use my craft knife to cut out the rest, or it rips up the paper. Seriously thought I wasn't going to try anymore when I finally got it to work with my kraft cardstock. But I do wish I could get this thing figured out. :(
Here's the layout I did for the WP challenge:
This summer my sister-in-law took pictures of me and the kids. There was four photos. But just my luck, none of them worked great...each one had at least one person with eyes closed or face turned. You know how great Photoshop experts can take one person from one photo and put it in another photo and have it match seamlessly so you have the perfect picture. Well I spent several hours trying to do that. And failed miserably. So finally I gave up and thought I would do a better job just me and my craft knife. So I cut each person out of the best photo they had and then layered them all together on the photo to create the best possible photo for me. :) It was actually kind of a cool trick...who needs Photoshop. ;)
Here are the close up's of my layout and you can see the photo better too:
Well thanks so much for popping in today!
Have a fantastic day!
