Let's Get Digital!-Using Digital Cut files on Layouts

Hi scrappers!  Welome back to Scrap your Scraps.  Today I am sharing some ideas on using digital cut files on your layouts.  One of my favorite tools in my craft room is my silhouette cameo.  A silhouette cameo is so versatile and lets you create everything from your own backgrounds and titles to detailed embellishments.
Here are some layouts I created with some digital cut files that I bought from The Cut Shoppe.

On the first layout I took the big circle and added little scraps of paper to the back of it.  When I was done adding paper to the back I cut the large circle in to 3 pieces.  To add dimension I popped up the cut file with foam squares.  The finishing touches were made with stickers, wood veneers, and a little gold stitching.  

 For the second layout I added some patterned paper behind the cut file then vellum and photos on top.  I used gold trimmed labels to add the names and ages of all my cuties by their pictures.  The finishing touches were added with a little bit of gold stitching and a big gold title.

Now it is your turn!  Dust off that die cut machine, bring out all your paper scraps and get to work.  For more ideas you can head to my blog here.  As usual if you have any questions let me know!  Have a great day!

Hi everyone, it's Cat here with a contribution to this wonderful post by Candace!  So I don't have a Silhouette machine, but I do have an old Cricut machine.  It's the 6x12 one so I can only do so much with it, but I decided to dust it off and see if I could make something fun with it.  I decided to just pick a cut out and fill a half page with it that I could then back with paper.  I ended making the deer one that I used for this layout, and a bunny one that I'm going to use on another layout.  I absolutely love how it turned out and I got to use up more scraps!  Everything except the very background paper that I used was a scrap from my stash!
