Dream It Create It-My Birthday Present!

If you are into Photoshop at all, you have probably heard of the drawing tablets that you can buy. I didn't really start wanting one until I got my Silhouette.  Then...I started thinking more about them.  Well, Carleen surprised me for my birthday this year and got me one!  I am still trying to figure it out, I just haven't had the time to sit down and play with it.  

I snapped this picture because I knew I wanted to scrap the moment I brought it home.  I have two confessions about this layout.  

1. The date in the corner is NOT the day I got it! 

2. I used all older product on this layout, except for the little mini envelope that is under the flower.  I have a ton of the American Crafts/Amy Tangerine Sketchbook collection and I thought this was a perfect collection to use for this.  Honestly, I just have a hard time cutting into this collection, because I love it so much.  

Supplies: Pattern Paper-American Crafts (Sketchbook & Ready Set Go (envelope); Embellishments-American Crafts Sketchbook; Letters-American Crafts Thickers and October Afternoon; Pen-Sharpie; Ink-Memento; Stamps-Laina Lamb Designs; Roller Stamp-American Crafts (Ready Set Go); Adhesive-Scotch ATG and Scrapbook Adhesives; Punch-EK Success

Silhouette Cameo with the following file:

I love the border strips that you can reuse, since they are so cute.  I used a couple on the page. I also used Laina's stamps again.  I can't seem to stop reaching for them. 

I had an envelope that I had cut and decided it was too big for another layout.  I just added it under my flower/banner combo.  Cute border strip and a Laina stamp again!

I know I occasionally whip out an 8.5 x 11 layout on here, but I had a lot of fun with this one.  I just could not get a 12 x 12 format to work.  So, if you get stuck, switch up your layout size and see if it helps!
