I am excited to announce that I am one of the new design team member for a new Etsy store and challenge site called A Cutt Above. A Cutt Above's Etsy Store offers great die cut embellishments for use in your electronic die cutting machine. The files come in PNG, Studio and SVG. There will be a new challenge on the 1st of every month, so make sure to stop by so you can play along with us.
Now I have to be honest, its been a few years since I have brought out my Silhouette and Cricut, I actually had to dust them off a little. I am so glad that I did though, I forgot how much fun they are. For my design team reveal I used the cut file "go See do." on my layout. This title just seemed to go perfectly with my daughter jumping off of a 2 story pier into the ocean. She didn't even stop to think about it, she just went.
Here is a close up of the go See do cut file I used. I wanted the title to look like sand so I airbrushed some Copic markers onto them to give a kinda grainy look and then on the very edge I used a dark brown just to outline the die cut a little. The I stuck it down with some pop dots to give it a little more dimension.
