Mosaic Layout Cut File - Updated with PS, DJ & Gypsy

Added the Mosaic cut for Plantin Schoolbook, Don Juan and one for the Gypsy to the cut file. I'm not sure whether the Gypsy file will work. I have never done this before. Hopefully, it is all good.

Hi there. I saw a layout that Beccy did on the Cricut Board. She cut each of her pictures into one inch squares and it turned out beautiful. I thought I could create something with Deisgn Studio and George to create a similar effect. Here is what I came up with. The cut file is below the pictures and I hope to also add one for Plantin Schoolbook and Don Juan if the interest is there. Thanks for looking...

Is someone knows how I can save in Gypsy format, please leave a comment and I will do this for those that have the Gypsy.

Here is the layout with my pictures placed under the matt. I just taped the pictures in place and done... easy as that!!!

Here is a picture using the matt turned a different way.

Here is a picture of the pieces that will be left on the matt. Creative minds will probably think of something to use the pieces for.

Here is a picture of the cut file using George.

Altered to include file with Planting Schoolbook and Don Juan as well as George. Here is the cut file (personal use only please)...

I have had a request to add this cut as a Gypsy File... Here ya go... hope it works.

This layout is of my granddaughter who is a total fashionista with a tomboy mentality. She is such a fun gal and I am so proud of her. She is graduating this year and will be attending college next year to become a Child Psychologist.

I saw a similar layout on the Cricut Board and thought it would be perfect for Erica's layout. I cannot remember who posted the layout. Mine was done using my Cricut and the George and Forever Young cartridges. I placed the cuts all on Design Studio and then cut them to create the layout.
Items used: Coer'dinations Gemstone for Cuts and Title, Not sure of the designed paper (I think DCWV), Chalked the edges, Brads with glitter and Ribbon

Below you will find the cut file if you are interested in doing the layout.

I cut the flowers out and stacked them. For the blue purse I cut away parts of the flowers so that both colors would show through.

Here is a layout I did of our granddaugher's shopping trip while in the Dominican Republic. They all had so much fun.

The background paper is from the DCWV stack All Dressed Up and the title was done using Coer'dinations Gemstone paper. The girl cuts were from the DCWV adhesive stack. The girl was a design I found in a Bratz Doll coloring book page I found on the internet. I used Paint Shop Pro to clean it and alter it. I then traced the image with my Pazzles.

Friends For Life...

This is the second 2 page layout that I have finished regarding my Granddaughter's trip to the Dominican Republic for her Senior Trip. Geez! When I graduated... back in the "old days" our senior trip was to downtown Kalamazoo... which we lived five miles away from. My daughter's Senior trip was to Grand Rapids which is only 50 miles away. Wow! Sure nothing like the senior trips they do now! This was an experience the kids will remember forever (as well as the parents).

I used my pazzles and created the cuts from clipart found on a coloring book site online. If you are interested in one of the best coloring books sites out there, check this one out... http://www.coloring-book.info/coloring/. They have just about every character I have ever seen as coloring pages. I cleaned the pages up using Paint Shop Pro and then traced them with my pazzles software.

I am not sure what the name of the paper is that I used for the background. It is some that I have had around forever and did not have the maker's name on it. I had a ton of fun making these cuts. I used Co-erdination paper for the Title and DCWV Adhesive solid stack for all of the cuts. The Title was done using the A & S Rister font.

Mother's Day Card with Cut File

I created a cut file with Design Studio for a Gate Fold Card in order to make my hubby's mother a card. The cut file is done using George, Plantin Schoolbook or Don Juan. The card fits in an A2 envelope.

Here is the card I made this morning. The paper is from the Linen Closet DCWV stacks. I also used Sentimentals to cut the Butterfly and Story book to cut the scallops and Mom. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the card base.

Here is a picture of the cut file. It includes cuts for George, Plantin Schoolbook and Don Juan.

Here is the cut file.

Dominican Rep Layouts

WooHoo!!!! Hubby is finally pretty good so I have gotten the scrapping mojo back. In March my granddaughter got to go to the Dominican Republic as part of her Senior Trip. My daughter also went with her and brought back a ton of pics. I am having a ball designing cuts for these layouts.

The characters were created by tracing clipart and cut with my Pazzles. I think they turned out so cute. I used DCWV Summer stack for the paper and the font used is A & S Rister.

This one is the beginning of the layouts I am going to do of their trip. This is a pic of Erica and her friends from school.

Erica and her friends got to go Snorkeling while there. It looks like they had a ton of fun.
