I wanted to create a layout showing the technique for backing cut files so I used a big and basic shape. Then I chose a rainbow of patterned papers for the pie chart to make an eye catching design. Another one of my favorite techniques is to layer color-on-color so I found matching embellishments and placed them in the pie chart pieces. All of the supplies (except a few staples like cardstock, ink, and mist) are found in the Studio Calico PENNY ARCADE scrapbook kits and add ons!
HOW TO: Turn the pie chart from the Penny Arcade Project Life Digital Stamps into a cut file then die cut it from white cardstock. For help on how to do this, the Cameo Basics Studio Calico class is a great place to start! Use the largest "slice" as a template to cut 8 slices from a rainbow of patterned papers. Place foam squares on the back of the pie chart then adhere the papers. Glue the pie chart in the center of a white cardstock layout background. Sew a few circles around the pie chart using white thread for texture. Add a black and white photo to the middle. Fill the pie chart slices with matching colored embellishments. Paint a wood veneer number with mist and add it to the pie chart. Print labels and printables, trim them out, and add them to the pie chart as well. Stamp the date, write a line of journaling, and drop three colors of spray mist on the coordinating slice.
