Let's Get Digital with Diane

I absolutely adored the FREE (can you believe it?!) Mandala cut file in the shop this month and I knew I wanted to use it in my Pocket Page Notebook. It looked kind of like a snowflake to me, so I knew it would work perfectly with these chilly Winter photos I've been taking.

I used my Silhouette and cut the file from Vellum. Only half would fit into my pocket, so I trimmed it in half and kept the other half for another day. To keep the mandala in place, I stitched around the outside of it with a coordinating thread from my stash. I love the extra texture it gives the spread.

The stamps from this month's Pocket Life kit couldn't have been more perfect for this very cold day, so I stamped both on the patterned paper on the left, and on my full-page photo on the right, using colours that coordinate with my photo. Once I added a tiny title from those gorgeous blue puffy alphas, my spread was finished.

Here's a quick look at my process as I made this page...

I love the translucent look of cutting files from vellum, it adds such depth to my TN spreads. I loved this cut file SO much, I cut it again from gold vinyl and added it to the front of my notebook for something a bit special!

I can't wait to see what you do with all the amazing digitals from Citrus Twist so don't forget to post them in the Facebook Fan Page so we can see!
