Cut it Up – Under the Sea

We’re exploring undersea worlds with Cut it Up’s Under the Sea challenge using lovely files from our sponsor, The Cutting Cafe!
I made a cute little mini using the Mixed Shape Album Book Template  and the Under the Sea Printable Stamp Set

First I looked through all my blue scraps of paper to find five that looked nice together.  The Under the Sea stamp set includes some seaweed images so I imported those into Silhouette Design Studio as vectors.  To get the seaweed cutouts on each page, I laid the seaweed on top of the page making sure a little of the seaweed protruded over the bottom of the page, selected both, and chose Object, Modify, Subtract.

I wanted the cutouts to be a surprise on each page, so I positioned them so you couldn’t see the one on the next page, aligning all their left sides to make sure they were hidden.I brought in the cute little seahorses as vectors, too, and fiddled around with them to make them just two layers.  Here are the rest of the pages.

Well, that was a ton of fun!!  🙂  Hope you join us on our undersea adventures at Cut it Up.  You could win three images of your choice from The Cutting Cafe!
