Today I want to share with you loads of inspiration from Guiseppa Gubler. This simple Spring Mini Album was made by using a Silhouette. I just love how the colors complement each other. A very Big Thank You to Guiseppa for motivating us with her beautiful project, and sharing this with us. Be sure to check out her blog My Creations for more of her wonderful designs.
If you don’t have a Silhouette, you can use your cricket or other die cutting machines to get close to the similar look. Here are the directions so let’s get started.
Start off by opening up your Silhouette program and selecting your image “Tad Gift Set”. Again you can get the same effect by using similar cuts.
This set comes all grouped together. You most likely will want your tags and tag holder to be cut from different patterned papers. With the Silhouette click on the image, then right-click. Find un-group and click on it. This will allow you to separate the tag, box, and circle.
Move all the images off the cutting mat except for the box. Now you are ready to cut. Authentique’s patterned paper is a really good, thick quality, so you are going to want to have your cut settings on Speed 3, Thickness 33, Blade set at 5 and I click the Double cut Setting. This will ensure a good clean-cut through the paper.
Using double-sided tape, adhere to the folds that will be going inside of the box.
As you now can see, the folds are inside of the box so it has a clean look.
Now pull your tag over. Cut out four separate tags so you have a tag cut from each different patterned paper. Cut as many desired tags as you want for your album. Once again, cut them out using the same setting above for the Authentique paper.
Remove your tags from your page and bring over the circles. To make more circles for your tags, copy and paste like above and then cut.
These are the four different tags.
Next is the funnest part….EMBELLISHING!
Have a great time creating with your Silhouette or other Die Cutting Machines, and your charming Authentique paper.
Creativity involves in breaking out of your traditional style. Take a look at your project in a different way, and never hesitate to try something new.
