***Be sure to check out the My Minds Eye blog today I have a layout up !!!!***

Hi friends, here's a new layout that has one of my most favorite cuts from the Silhouette store! I saw something similar to this on Pinterest, and wanted to give it a try too. I may or may not have already made a layout for each of my kids with it ;)
I used the "Days of the Week" kit from the Paper Bakery which has my favorite, My Minds Eye, the pretty American crafts gold dot vellum, and the cute anchor paper by Glitz Designs. Don't you just love it!
After cutting the arrow background with my Silhouette, I cut 2" strips of each of the various patterned papers. As I came to each section I wanted to fill, I would cut a small piece from one of the 2" strips and glue it down. It took a little bit of time to fill the background, but I love how it turned out!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
Mary Ann

This is the second thing I have loved today that someone did on a silhouette! I have never had a die cut machine...but now I'm tempted:)

That background is incredible. Love how you backed areas of the cutout.

This is fantastic, I love the colours you've used, and how there's tons of patterns but they aren't overwhelming because of the silhouette cut. Off to check out the MME blog too... x
