I wanted to make a big impact on this layout, using the patterned papers from the Scrapbook Circle June Kit and a large cut file. I used the Crop feature in Silhouette Studio, to create the shaped letters, inside the US map, and then backed each one with different papers from the Kit. Before I adhered the die cut map from the On the Road cut file to my background, I cut the This Way cut file from White cardstock and placed a few patterned papers behind it and then layered the die cut background over a second sheet of White cardstock.
I've got a new Process Video to share with you for this layout, if you would like to check out how I cropped the letters to create the negative effect on the On the Road cut file!
I really loved the travel papers and embellishments included in the Scrapbook Circle June Kit, so I decided to go for a travel theme on both of my layouts. I wanted to go for a darker background on this layout, so I used the back side of the Latitude patterned paper from the Pink Paislee Atlas collection. I enlarged the compass from the Happy Camper cut file set, and backed each of the open sections with various patterned papers from the Kit. Then I cut the word Ohio from the All Tied Up Alpha cut file set, and arranged it around the circle shape of the compass.
