Be still, my heart. It is true, you know, that the days are long but the years are short. I have been immersed in nostalgia as I prepare for my son’s high school graduation in less than a month. I decided to create a layout using some of the photos that appeared on his graduation announcement. I started this hybrid page with a digital template that I designed this week:
Today I have a video showing you how to take any element from a layered template and create your own custom cut file. Many of my templates include titles that have been designed and converted to graphics. I do this because I create titles with paid fonts and without the conversion, they won’t read on your computer unless you, too, own the font. I got the idea to convert this title and wanted to show you how it works! I use Silhouette Studio in this tutorial, but I would guess the process could work very similarly in any electronic cutting software.
Today’s Pixel to Page video includes about 12 minutes of digital tutorial and about 12 of the physical page building process! Enjoy!
I was not able to find links for the KI Memories star paper. That paper has been in my stash since the early 2000s. The woodgrain paper is from the Gimme Some Sugar kit from Close to My Heart.
I really love the notebook border on this layout. I’ve never used anything like this before and my Silhouette is really getting a workout!
This design could easily be adapted to a 12 x 12 canvas. Simply create the page as shown and mount the page onto a 12 x 12 piece of coordinating cardstock. The result? Great design in the middle framed by glorious white space!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I’m sure I’ll have more layouts coming about Cole and this final year of high school!
