Last month I went on a weekend retreat with a group of friends, WhoGivesAScrap?! I took my Silhouette and I am so glad that I actually used it! There are some shapes I have had for years that I just never seem to use so I also set a goal to use some of them. The little trees on this layout are one case in point--I think I got them 3 years ago!! LOL
On the next layout I just cut some extra shapes while cutting the title on the previous layout. I like to fill a 12x12 sheet with shapes when using my Silhouette so I don't waste paper.
Here's some of the details-I layered stickers to get them to say the things I wanted them to:
