Hello crafty cut file friends!  Majken here with you today to share another scrapbook layout. On today's project I am using two cut files: Script Alpha to create my title and Scribble Circle Background that I "chopped" and enlarged to create a bit of a different background.  Let me show you how I modified and used the cut files!

To create the single large scribble circle, I first released the compound path and moved the image to the side, deleted the remaining duplicate image, then put the compound path back on the one you moved to the side. 

Next, use the knife tool (if you don't have Silhouette Studio Designer Edition, you can use the eraser tool instead) to cut one corner circle from the background.

Once the circle is separated, delete the remaining circles and zoom in so you can see the edges well.

Then refine the edges using the eraser tool. Don't stress this part if you aren't exact...you can cut the circle out and use fine-tip scissors to smooth your edges.

I then enlarged the circle, cut it out from white textured cardstock, and then used watercolors to add color in different concentrations to match the patterned papers.  While that dried, I tore two strips to put along the left and right of my base page. I used watered down white acrylic paint and blue watercolor to spritz ink on my base.

After that dried, I put my circle on the base page and sewed messy circles around the cut file.  Then I framed my photos with patterned paper and ephemera to put inside my circle.

I laced my circle with stickers, puffy stickers, chipboard pieces, and more.

I cut "friends" from dark blue patterned paper using the new Script Alpha cut file and followed the circle to create my title.

Here are the two cut files I used in my project today:

Go grab some cut files today to create with, and don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio so we can see what you are making!

Have a fantastic week!
