Education Week - Slice
Today I'm going to share with you one of my favorite ways to use Making Memories Slice Cordless Design Cutter. While I do love to cut out the shapes and letters for my projects, I also love to use the negative space that you get after cutting. For this layout, I used the circle from the Basic Shapes design card. I have been addicted to using circles on my layouts for a while now, and this gave me a whole new way to use them.
I started by taking a scalloped edged sheet of white cardstock, and used the Making Memories Slice to cut three large circles along one side. I then used my Paper Piercer to punch small holes all around each circle. I attached the entire sheet to my blue cardstock using thick pop-dots, which gave it the raised look with tons of dimension. Then I had fun filling all three circles with a variety of Making Memories Epoxy Buttons, glue dotting each one onto the blue cardstock background.
I also decided to use the large circles that I had cut with the Slice. So now I have both the positive and the negative on my layout. Because they were white and I was adhering them to white, I ran them through an embossing folder to give them a little texture. I finished it off with chipboard letters from Making Memories' Animal Crackers collection, string, staples, and my journaling.
