Now, let's get to the layouts!
I wanted to use the cut file on this layout, as a large circle element. I used the Ellipse tool to add a circle around each of the rows of XOs, and then cut each one out on a different patterned paper included in the June 2015 Main Kit. Once the circles were finished cutting, I just used my scissors to snip each one in half and then placed them on the White cardstock from the June 2015 Cardstock Add-On, according to their size. I used the Kitten Thickers from the June 2015 Project Life Add-On, to create my title around the outer edge of the circles on the right hand side of the layout. Then I placed my photo strip to the left side of the title. I embellished with some of the fun Evalicious Wood Veneers included in the June 2015 Embellishment Kit and the Project Life Kit, and bits and pieces of the Crate Paper embellishments.
I also have a new Process Video to go along with this layout, and it shows a bit of both layouts at the beginning, and how I set up the cut file to create the two different pages.
I used a fun and easy technique for this layout. I cut the XO cut file from a piece of cardstock, and placed it over the Crate Paper patterned paper I wanted to use for my background. Once it was in place, I used it as a template to add the Xs and Os back into the negative spaces. I adhered each of the letters and then removed the cardstock piece. Before I added my photo and embellishments, I stitched around the circles with my sewing machine. I arranged the photo title and embellishments in a horizontal design on this layout, compared to the more vertical design on the first. I placed my photo to the right of the layout, and then added in some of the cute die cut flowers from the CP Poolside Ephemera pack included in the June 2015 Main Kit. I wanted to balance out the left side, so I used a large Fancy Pants tag from the Embellishment Kit, as a base for a few more embellishments.
