Tutorial >> Using Studs with a Silhouette Cut Design

I have a fabulous layout and tutorial to share with you from Jessy today!! She is consistently amazing me with her inspiring use of the Silhouette Cameo and how she creates these amazing custom backgrounds for her scrapbook pages! She is showing us how to incorporate the triangle metal studs from the Styleboard Collection into the cut design! I LOVE the results!!

Good morning creative people! Today I would like to share with you a step-by-step on how I created my layout. 


I found this fun cut in the Silhouette online store. What I did was to remove some points in the Silhouette studio because I wanted to also incorporate the triangle studs into my design and needed to leave room for them. After cutting the design onto a white card stock, I layered the back with a piece of patterned paper. Then, I sewed at the edges – all around the card stock. Next, I adhered another white cardstock (sewn at the edges as well) and created a little lift by using foam dots. 

Here is the close up of the cardstocks that are adhered together.


 TIP: To apply these studs onto a layout is pretty easy. I bent the spikes using my thumbnail. Of course, you can use a plier to bend them. Next, I applied a foam dot in the middle.


Don't you just love the studs placed all over the cuts? That's the whole intention; I wanted them to be part of the design. As you can observe, I pasted some of the hexagon cuts too so that the layout won't look too busy.


 After positioning my photo, I begun to embellish the layout with lots of fun ephemera & vellum shapes. 


Ta daa…. here is the completed layout! All I did was to cluster a bunch of ephemera & vellum shapes together so that they matched with the colours of the studs and the photo as well.


 And a couple more close ups of the details:




I hope you like the simple step-by-step tutorial for using the studs with a Silhouette cut design. Thank you for stopping by! Have a lovely day!  Xoxo Jessy
