I am only 12 days behind but I wanted to share this layout from the November 1st Garden: a layout featuring Teal Quickutz Adhesive Vinyl. You may look at the vinyl rolls and think "wall art" but I wanted to share how you can create your very own stickers and embellishments for your scrapbooking with this super versatile vinyl as well.
I created the butterfly embellishments on the above layout by using a Silhouette die cut design and cut them from the teal vinyl. Then I ungrouped the design, removed the "inside cut lines" and cut the butterfly again using vellum. This gave me a solid vellum butterfly and then an intricately cut vinyl butterfly. I simply adhered the vinyl butterfly right over the vellum one for a beautiful layered embellishment for my page.
Not only does the adhesive vinyl work great with the Silhouette (as well as other electronic die cutting machines. I use mine with the Cricut as well) but you can easily use traditional dies with the vinyl too. To create the year number "stickers" on my layout I ran the teal vinyl through my Epic Six die cutting machine using the Mary Jane Grand Alphabet. Imagine, never running out of that often used letter or number sticker again because you can make as many as you want using adhesive vinyl!

Another note regarding this layout: I used a KI Memories Paper Pad (see THIS post on the Weekly Challenge I'm hosting at Two Peas). I incorporated the techniques I discussed in that post: using white cardstock (to help break up the patterned paper designs and vellum over one of the patterned papers). There are so many great paper pads out there that make creating a coordinated and eye-pleasing design so simple (and KI Memories has several of my absolute favorites a the moment!).
Have a great Thursday everyone. :)
