Jana Eubank: I love creating elements for my pages using my electronic die cutting machine. For this page, I stacked my photos on top of each other along the left side of the page, and then used my Silhouette Cameo machine and the BasicGrey Spice Market papers to create a happy scene on the right side.
The rainbow and banner shapes are from the Super Duper Fantastic set by BasicGrey and can be found in the Silhouette Online Store here. First, I cut out all of the pieces for the rainbow using solid papers from the 6 x 6″ paper pad. Next, I grouped them together on my mat, welded them together and cut out the yellow background. I adhered everything together and then used the offset feature in the Silhouette software to create the black shadow for the rainbow image.
I enlarged the banner from the Super Duper Fantastic set large enough for my handwritten word to sit on. I copied the enlarged banner image and then shortened it to anchor the printed chipboard letters for the second part of my title.
I cut the balloons using the same 6 x 6″ solid papers that I used for the rainbow and again used the offset feature to create shadows for the balloons. Each of the balloons is decorated using a shape from the BasicGrey Boy Shapes found in the Silhouette Online Store. I tied white string to the stem of each balloon, tied all the strings together and then tucked them behind the title. I love how they look like they are floating up into a rainbow-filled sky.
