Emily has created a beautiful page for our Technique Tuesday series here on the blog and we are so excited to share it with you! From Emily:

“Hi I’m Emily and I’m so excited to be writing my first blog post for Disney Creative Company!

I love working on Disney challenges and this project was fun to figure out. My challenge was to use small elements clustered together to make a new shape. I have been wanting to use this cute Mini Border Cutting Die Set and decided to go for it. Each cut gives you 5 Mickey heads, 2 stars, and 2 Mickey hands.

This project also would have been cute with a heart or a star shape, but I went for a circle this time.

I first created a circle shape on my Silhouette Cameo and cut it out on some white cardstock.

I then removed the circle and placed the leftover mat on my background paper to create a big open area for my cutouts. I separated the cutouts by shape and adhered them with a clear drying liquid glue. I started with the Mickey hands, then went on to use most of the Mickey heads, and filled in a few spots with stars. I had a few Mickey heads leftover at the end.

We were at Walt Disney World for our anniversary this year. Of course I got a free anniversary button but I also got it personalized at Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Magic Kingdom for a small fee. My photo of the button has shades of pink, green, purple, and gold in it, so that’s why I went with those colors for my cutouts.

I found these Thickers in my stash for the title and finally had an excuse to use these “Mr. and Mrs.” silicone embellishments! I added 3 leftover Mickey heads and some enamel dots for extra embellishment.”

Supplies by Scraps & Ink Crafts: Mini Border Cutting Die, “Mr. & Mrs.” Silicone, Castle Printed Acrylic, Silver Padded Applique, Gingham Bow.

Great idea to use the Mini Border Cutting Die for your smaller shapes, Emily!

We always adore Emily’s beautiful pages! We love her suggestions of using the smaller shapes to create a large heart or star too. Does this sound like a fun technique to try out for yourself? We’d love to see what you create, so share your projects with us and be sure to tag us on Instagram and Facebook!

From all of us here at DCC, have a magical day!
