How Sweet It Is Layout and FREE Digital Cut File | My Mind's Eye

How sweet it is indeed, that I was given the amazing opportunity to be the October Guest Designer for My Mind's Eye!!! It still feels like I'm dreaming!!!

As I mentioned yesterday, I am now going to begin sharing the four layouts I created using the awesome Cut and Paste collection. This was one of my Summer 2013 CHA favorites, so I was beyond thrilled to get to work with it for my guest designer projects!

INSPIRATION | Houndstooth

This is a photo from our summer vacation to Mexico...our traditional vacation "selfie". Since we first started dating, we have been taking self portrait of ourselves when we go on vacation or take a trip. It's just one of those things we do! I was inspired to create the houndstooth die cut background from the Cut & Paste Charm Bliss "Jovial" paper. After I cut the background piece, I then cut some extra houndstooth shapes from the 6x6 Paper Pad and attached them here and there with double sided foam tape. I then had fun creating a vertical border using a combination of chipboard, buttons and enamel dots.
