Love Life & Be Happy

What's a girl to do, when she can't decide what cut file to use on a layout?  How about use all of them!  That's exactly what I did on this week's layout.  I knew I wanted to work with the new Doodle Dandy cut file set, but couldn't decide which shape or shapes I wanted to use.  After a little bit of thinking...a nap...and coming back to it the next day, I thought it would be fun to use the whole set and create a colorful background for my layout!

I enlarged the Doodle Dandy cut file and copied it and moved it to the side of the Studio mat.  Then I did an outline trace and sent through a piece of White cardstock.  After I removed the cardstock from my mat, I went back and re-cut each of the shapes on different patterned papers.  Then I backed each one with an alternating pattern and went back and added them to the negative outline shapes.

This was a really fun technique, and you can check out my full process for creating the layout by watching my new Process Video!

And this isn't the only new cut file in the Shop this week!  There are two other sets, that you won't want to miss!
