So, Geek Lab posts are usually about some cool technology thing. Guess what? I’m terrible with that kind of stuff. So my post today is more of a what-to-do-when-technology-fails-you-(butreallyitsyourfault) kind of post.
I fell in love with all the lightbulb elements in the kit and knew that I wanted to use those in a fun way. I also love the awesome lightbulb cutfile that Lacey had designed for the October Kit, Masquerade Ball. It was my plan to combine the two. However, I am still adjusting to my Silhouette. I can never get the settings right and my cutfiles turn out badly about 50% of the time. For this page I had a few ripped lightbulbs, but decided to still put them to good use. I placed them all on the page. (Originally, my plan was to place my photos towards the top of the layout, which is why the messed up cut files are there.)
And I had a great background to work with for my layout. I ended up placing my photos at the bottom of the page instead of the top, so I had to come up with ways to strategically cover the messed up lighbulbs. Here’s the final result:
What do you do when your original scrappy plans are foiled by your mistakes?
