Do More Than Just Exist



Hello Clique friends! Marcia here today with another layout to share with you from the June Dreamquest Clique Kit. This layout has photos from a camping/hiking trip my daughter took last Fall with some friends just south of Duluth, Minnesota. Of my three kids, she takes the most pictures of herself, lol. I wanted to leave lots of white space on that pretty cloud paper, so I clustered my photos and papers at the bottom.


The title is one of the exclusive digital cut files that come with the June kit. Since I had many comments about the Silhouette sketch pen I used on my last layout, I decided to show you another way to use sketch pens for titles. Once again I used my gold metallic sketch pen in my Silhouette. But this time I created an offset and cut it out.


Let me show you how you can do this too. The first step is to select Silhouette Sketch Pen in the cut settings window and swap out your blade for a pen.


Do not remove the paper from the Silhouette yet! Now go to the offset window and select ‘Offset’. You can adjust the distance from the pen until it is just how you want it.


Now go back to the cut settings menu and switch your settings back to cardstock. Remember to replace the blade in your Silhouette too. Drag the original title off the mat. We don’t want to cut where the sketch pen drew lines. Since I wanted my title to look more like a cloud, I also erased those inside pieces before cutting. I like using the eraser to do this. You can find the eraser in the toolbar along the left. Now you are ready to cut.


I hope you will give this a try. Here are some more shots of my layout…


This felt deer was an add on to the November kit, but I could not resist using him here.



Thanks for stopping by.
