Mother's Day Sushi--Cameo Creations Challenge

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are counting down the minutes to a fun-filled holiday weekend...I know I am!!  Today, I have another Cameo Creations project to share with you.  The theme of this challenge is to create a scrapbooking layout...anything goes, as long as you use a Silhouette electronic cutter.  Here's the layout I came up with (if you click on the photos, you will see a larger view):

I LOVE sushi, so, of course, I chose to have sushi for our Mother's Day dinner this year.  I've been dying to scrapbook one of our sushi experiences.  This is a 12 x 12 inch layout.  I created the circle in the background by using this 12 x 12 background shape (the spiky one in the set) from the Silhouette Online Store (SOS).  I filled it with a digital paper from Lettering Delights' Ninja Kicks Paper Pack, then I printed and cut it with my Cameo.  I made it as large as I could while still fitting it on an 8.5 x 11" piece of card stock (since that's the largest my current printer will accommodate).   I then drew a circle in Silhouette Studio that was a bit bigger than the spiky circle and cut it from black paper.

I also cut this open squares border (SOS) from black paper to add to the red strip of card stock that stretches along the bottom of my layout.  I had to resize it a bit so it would be close to 12" wide, but I sort-of like the way the squares morphed into rectangles.

I used fonts on my computer to create the title in Silhouette Studio.  I love that I can cut whatever font I want with my Cameo.  It makes creating scrapbook layouts that much easier!

Of course, I had to use the stamp sets I designed for Pink by Design: Let's Do Sushi and Got Sushi?.  One of the reasons I created them was so I could use them to document some of our fun sushi times.  My favorite one here is my hubby's photo...doesn't he look like he's delivering the perfect pick-up line?  LOL!

I got these cute little sushi images from the Lettering Delights Bento Box Graphic Set.  I used Silhouette Studio's print and cut feature to cut these little guys out.  So cute!

Well, I hope you'll head on over to Cameo Creations to see what the other Design Team members created. Then, we'd love it if you'd link up your own Silhouette-created layout!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!  Plus, you could be chosen to win a $20 gift certificate to SVG Cuts!  You have two weeks to enter. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!
