NSD 2016 Challenge #10: Cut File

The next NSD Challenge from Paper Issues required using a cut file from their store. I used this globe that you can get for free at the Paper Issues online store. 

It took longer than I had hoped and as you can see from my close ups, I didn't get a clean cut! I recently used the machine for vinyl and I couldn't remember what settings were best for this cardstock. Simply going by the suggested settings for cardstock does not work! I cut this thing out three times with different blade settings before just going with the slightly distressed looking globe, haha! Oh well. Time to get a new blade! 

Once again I used my May Counterfeit kit. I love this paper. 


  1. That bokeh background paper is perfect for this page! It nicely sets off your photo and the large cut-out (I've had the silhouette on my wishlist for a very long time).

  2. Great layout! I love how you used the cut file!
