Creative Scrapbooker's VIP Club

In loving memory of Christy RiopelThis week we are visiting the fall 2015 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. In this issue, Christy Riopel had a ton of fun creating with Spellbinder dies and the Grand Calibur die cutting machine. One of the projects Christy created for this article, featured a cameo background she cut out using a die and a die cutting machine. So simple and so stunning. You will want to try this.

Cutting A Cameo Background

by Christy Riopel
Sometimes it is nice to remove some of the background from a photo without cropping the entire image. This cameo style of cutting,  is a beautiful and unique technique that will allow you to do just that.

Cameo Cutting Step By Steps | Creative Scrapbooker Magazine1. Hold the chosen circle or oval die over the photo. Cut along the part of the image that you want to keep from the outside edge in, making slits in the photo.
2. Weave the die into the photo, so it is under the parts you want to keep and over the parts you want to cut away.
3. Run through the Grand Caliber die cutting machine to cut and separate the parts of the photo.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone.
