This week's From Start to Finish layout is die cut heavy. Almost every element on my page was created using a design from the Silhouette Online Store (see images/list below).
I wanted to create a page with 4 quadrants and instead of the standard 6x6 or 5x5, etc. I decided to use a 2-frame die cut, cut twice and overlapped to create the quadrant design.
Instead of placing all my elements behind the frames, I cut the large square scallope and die cut background and layered them on top of the frame opening.
I purposefully sized my largest photo somewhat smaller than the opening, leaving a white border around the photo for a matted effect.
I computer printed some journaling on a My Mind's Eye label for my subtitle and added stamping on the die cut "tabs" to reinforce the theme of my page.

I wanted to let my From Start to Finish followers know that this week's layout + video are my last. I have resigned my position as a Garden Girl at 2Peas. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a Garden Girl these last three years and I appreciate all the support the community has given me and my projects there. I will, however, be bringing you the final 3 Scrapbook Stamping Class Lessons for 2011 and have some amazing guest designers lined up for these final classes! Be sure to check the Garden at 2Peas on the first of the month for October's Scrapbook Stamping Class!
One more thing to check out today:
I did a podcast interview with the fabulous Lain Ehmann yesterday! You can check it out HERE and HERE. (And please be advised that I feel like a lame goofball being interviewed, however, Lain is super awesome and we talk about my class for True Scrap which is FUN! It's not long, check it out if you have some time.) :)
