Mix Your Manual Die Cutter with your Electric One!

As I sit here writing this on Sunday night, I am just remembering what a great weekend it was. We had a lot of fun just running some errands, lounging and taking the dogs to the park on Saturday.  We hadn't taken them for a while, so it was quite a treat for everyone. 

Of course a great weekend usually involves some scrapping in there.  I got a couple of layouts done and a few pictures edited and ready to go on pages.  The picture on this layout is from our park trip. 

As I started this page below, I decided to mix up my Cameo cuts with some dies and stamps from Laina Lamb Designs.  I usually just do "one or the other" but why not mix them up on a layout?  Very easy and pretty fun to do also!  Now....I just need some more dies for my Cuttlebug!

Supplies:  Pattern Paper-Pebbles (Seen and Noted); Cardstock-American Crafts; Stamps-Laina Lamb Designs (Days and Dates); Dies-Laina Lamb Designs (Calendar Components); Punch-EK Success; Flair-{a flair for buttons}; Button-American Crafts; Twine-May Arts; Wooden Letters-Studio Calico; Font-Handwriting Dakota; Adhesives-Scotch ATG, Fabri Tac and Scrapbook Adhesives; Ink-Jenni Bowlin for Ranger (Weather Vane) & Memento; Embossing Powder-American Crafts Zing (White); Paper Clip-American Crafts

Silhouette Cameo with the following files:
Design ID#  26018

Design ID# 6574

I stamped the grey banner first and then embossed the phrase in white over it.  Then I thought the stamps would look cute out to the side. I cut the 365 out of my Cameo and then added Laina's manual die cut hearts from her Calendar Components set.

Backed the opening of the heart with the striped paper and then I had to add a little "flair" to the page.  The "weekend" from Laina's stamp set, Days and Dates.  LOTS of goodies in that stamp set!

And if you want to know just how tired the pups were after the outing, this picture is worth a 1000 words!  Sheldon, Ella and Jetson passed out on the bed!  Higgins was with me while I was scrapping. 

Have a great Monday!
