We’ve all been there I’m sure. The machine is set to cut, it’s whirring away and doing its magic and then you do it. You knock the machine. Sigh! I knocked it badly on this occasion and nudged the cutting mat off course. I paused the machine, cancelled the cut, unloaded the mat and went about trying to salvage what I could.
It was about half cut so I took a straight line across the page, at a slight angle to maximum the amount of the cut file I could save. I stuck the large piece to my background and added in the smaller pieces using the scrap of half cut file as a guide as to where the pieces needed to go. I then had a 12x12 with half a cut file ready to go as a background for a layout.
All that and I haven’t even mentioned what cut file I have used yet! This is (half of!) Brolly Jolly. You can buy the digi download here and purchase the pre-cut here.
The rest of the layout went without a hitch. I gathered supplies to match a colour scheme of aqua, purple and lime green and pulled out a rainy photo. A frog from Shimelle’s Field Trip seemed the perfect fit, a few glittered ephemera pieces from Amy Tan’s Slice Of Life, and a flair button from Pretty Little Studio that featured rain drops. I built up a large title using a mixture of alpha stickers, letters cut on the Silhouette Cameo and some letters fussy cut from a pocket page card from Crafty Templates.
I finished the layout with sequins, enamel dots and tiny raindrop ephemera pieces from an old Feed Your Craft set.
