Too Cool Layout


The Weekly Challenge for the Circle Blog this week is to create a "Just Because" layout or card. I used these pictures of Eric when he was four and thinking he was too cool in his star shaped sunglasses. I started with a piece of patterned paper from the DCWV Summer Dream Stack. I then cut a 12"x 7" light green strip to go across the middle, and layered it with the reverse pattern of my background sheet.


My "Too Cool" title is cut at 2.5" from the Boys Will Be Boys layout. The red star is also cut at 2.5" from Create a Critter, and is run though the Cuttlebug Polka Dots Embossing Folder.


This funny robot is cut at 4" from the Robotz cartridge, and his road is made from welding together two 1.5" roads from Everyday Paper Dolls. I cut it once in black, and then a second time in yellow, but hiding the cutouts with my Gypsy. The swirly star is cut at 1.5" from the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge, and the yellow one is cut at 2.5" (not real dial size) from Create a Critter. I ran it through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.


The second robot is cut at 3" from the Robotz cartridge. The little piece that he is layered upon is cut at 4.25" from the Don Juan cartridge and run through the Spots and Dots Cuttlebug folder. Lastly, my journaling tag is cut at 2.5" from Robotz.
