Adding Silhouette Cameo cuts in a scrapbook layout


Hello there! It's me Venus. Today I'm sharing a layout featuring cut-out words made by using Silhouette cameo. I have this machine for 3 years now and its my crafting best friend (except when there's no electricity). I purchased the phrase from the Silhouette Design Store , although you can also make your own words in the Silhouette Design Studio. 

Using die cut words add dimension, texture, and color to a layout. You don't have to adhere it entirely to the page. Just apply bits of glue on the backside of the cut and position it on the page.

If the cut is light colored (like what I used on my layout), simply add background color by using mists, stencils, watercolors, a solid colored paper, whatever!! The possibilities are endless. 

So I hope you liked my post. Leave me a comment so I may continue posting more about scrapbooking and crafts. 

Thank you!!

Mixed Media Card Supplies ~ Thinking of You


Good day dear reader! I'm here to share a mixed media piece that I've done at home. This is my FIRST EVER mixed media card and I'm still learning. I'm a huge fan of this technique and I'm so ready to explore the possibilities of creating a bigger than 12"x12" piece (deaming mode).

This is a 4"x6" sized card with oodles of craft goodies...

Here's a list of supplies I used:

1. Gesso - There are lots of branded gesso out there. I used the cheapest.
2. Texture Paste - I like liquitex for its smoothness. But I can also DIY a thick texture paste.
3. Rangers paint dabbers - Its easy to apply and dries quick but you can use acrylic paints too
4. Hero Arts stamp (sentiment)
5. Pink Paislee stamp (butterfly)
6. Archival stamp inkpad - Its waterproof
7. The Crafters Workshop stencil
8. Flowers
9. Glue

DCWV Sweet Blossoms ~ You Make Me Smile

Hello! I want to share a new layout using the DCWV May 2015 sketch. 
his looks like a fun and easy sketch to follow. 


I used this Sweet Blossoms Stack by DCWV.  The colors are bright and the patterns are pretty. I really like the watercolor blooms.


I specifically picked these papers filled with large blossoms which are easy to cut out. So I cut out individual and clusters....


not my photo
Look how I used the cut-outs on my page! The blossoms frame my photos. I added some embellishments, a bit of stamping and stencil, and alphabets to add some interest to the layout.


 Here's a close-up.....


I can't wait to create another layout or a home decor using this stack!! Thank you for visiting my blog.
