{ Die cutting Saturday–cut file 001 }

I know it’s not Saturday, but Paper Issues has a new monthly challenge - Die Cutting Saturday. Each month they will be sharing a free Silhouette cut file with a challenge to use it on a project. You can download your free file on their blog.

Here is what I came up with. I took only one of the six corner circles and enlarged them to fit my page. I used the knife tool to cut just the parts I needed. I cut it out from patterned paper that I have been hoarding. I had an idea to use some of my old rub-ons that I had put away and had to look for. Some of these are really old: Urban Lilly, Basic Grey, Bo Bunny and Scenic Route.

I used some of the brand new stamps from Technique Tuesday - Having Some Fun, Living and Laughing and Folding Banners - Fresh Cut Studio - October 2014. There is a new date stamp called Many Months that has beautiful font. I stamped the sayings on die cut vellum and tags from Elle’s Studio.
I added the rub-ons to the empty circles on the left side. The one on the right bottom corner has a star, but since it didn’t go with my layout I just covered it up with one of the other circle.

I used a mixture of things, some new and some very old (rub-ons), but it all worked together. I love the black and hot pink together. It’s been a long time since I did a page just for me.
