Hi, Carolyn with another weekly posting, and seems to be the theme all over blogland that July is "Christmas in July" so with the last Saturday of July, I decided to use the theme to share with you. Using the jpeg image that was included with the file, I created a Santa card. Here is my card:
Red card stock I believe I bought at Joann's Fabric
design paper from my personal stash
Holly from SilhouetteAmerica Online Store
In Silhouette Studio DE I open up the Santa file, sized to what I wanted, and than printed it onto white card stock. Once printed I used my Brother's Scan n Cut machine and cut out the Santa and the holly. So easy to create your embellishments with this machine.
The frame cut out in red card stock (heavy cardstock) I created in Silhouette Studio DE and adhered to the white card base and inserted the subway art piece right into the square.
Hi, I'm back to share another scrap page, using Hoo Loves School? from Scrapping with Lisa.
This page is for my granddaughter's scrapbook, as a page of her 6th
grade year. (I am so behind in the school year section of their

I traced the image in Silhouette Studio Design Edition and than copy and pasted the image into Paint.net where I created a png image, deleting all the white areas without the image, as I wanted it to stand alone on the mat w/out the white areas showing.
In Abode Photoshop Elements I created a green grunge mat using the photoshop brushes (Grunge), saved as a jpeg and than loaded into my Silhouette Studio Design Edition. Placed the mat on the 3D Stand Up cutfile; and than on a separate page I created the mat, placing the png image on the mat, after I created a oval for the swing to set on. I colored the png image with copic, bic and Stampin! Up markers - the Bic marker I used for the swing set was going dry but was able to create the bleached look.
Created a Grunge - looking mat for the back side and placed the 2nd half of the sentiment (traced, ungrouped and divided the sentiment so I can place one part on front, and the 2nd half on back.)

This card base can be cut out by hand (various utube videos out there with tutorials; and also there is tutorials on splitcoaststampers.com), but I wanted a cardbase that was easy to cut out and corrected size. My first attempt at cutting this out was not a great cut...but I believe it was the cardstock used - too flimsy.
I chose to use this sweet doll today, I used my SIL program to add the patterns to her. I chose to do it this way instead of printing on different papers because this way I knew her bodice would be a smaller pattern and look a little better.
I gave her real pearls for her head band and necklace and pearl "roses"
