I decided to create a layout for my daughter's horse album and used lots of die cuts on it.. I had a bunch of fun putting this layout together:
The cute little sheep I created myself.. I just added a bunch of small circles together and welded..
Super simple and lots of fun..
How about some close ups:
Its easy to add your faux stitching with the Silhouette software and you can add it in any color, I prefer white when ever possible :)
close up of my cute little lambs.. the head I created making a oval, that I then edited. pulling on the bottom of it to make it long, the ears are also ovals, but this time I pushed the sides in creating the flap look.. I then welded them all together creating the head :)
the crow is a cutting file I found in the SIL store..
You will find a direct link to the cut down in the supply list :)
side view of the trees.. I inked the edges with Bundled Sage distress ink and then used a pencil to bend the branches forward..
the gate is attached to the layout with foam tape to add a bit of dimension..
The cute little barn and silo I created.. The stable where the horse is at is red, so its why I added the barn and silo to the layout :) and the white faux stitching is printed onto the die cuts using the Silhouette software..
Here is a link to a tutorial on how to create the Faux stitching, its not my own video..

Well, there ya have it ladies.. I hope my post was helpful and I hope you get some fun projects created with those adorable die cuts I linked for you..
