Paper Dolls Guest Designer!

I am so happy to be a guest designer over at the Paper Dolls blog today! If you have not done so already you must head over and check them out. They host a challenge every week with fabulous prizes and feature wonderful artists and designers on a regular basis! This week the challenge is based around a file from Suzan and RJ of Papyrus Jungle.

Head over to the Paper Dolls and grab the file for this week's challenge and get to work! Make sure you stop by Papyrus Jungle to check out their blog and store!

I used the file this week to create a scrapbook page, I'm not sure what I'm gonna use it for but I'm sure it will come in handy someday. I suppose it could be used for a wedding album...anyway on to the pictures.
The large mat is for a 4"x6" picture and the small square mat is for a 2.75" square picture. Both of these mats are popped up off the page to add some dimension. The rectangle in the bottom right corner is for journaling and is flat on the layout.
The title is cut using Old English Text MT, a font that was installed from Microsoft Office. And the star of the day, the castle!
I cut out the file at approximately 8" wide. I opened all the SVG files in Make The Cut and layered them over one another so that the image was assembled as above. Then I re-sized everything all at once so the overall dimensions were to my liking, in this case 8" wide.

I hope you have enjoyed the project today and are inspired to make something of your own.

Happy crafting,
