There's Snow Place Like Home!

Hi everyone ~ thanks for joining me for today's Miss Kate Cuttables post!

Before we get started have you grabbed your free file from the Miss Kate Cuttables store yet??  WHAT?!? You didn't know you could get a free file?  Oh goodness, Miss Kate Cuttables gives out a different free file EVERY day!  Grab it here before the day's up ~ FREEBIE.  

For my post today I'm using a bundle file from the store called "There's Snow Place Like Home".

This is what the file looks like when you get it from the store ~

 Here's my 2-page layout using the file ~

Here is the left side of the layout ~ 
It's hard to tell in the photo (believe me, I tried), the trees are topped with glitter.  Snow is very glittery (is that even a word?) when the sun hits it.

Here is the right side of the layout ~
 Again, I used glitter on the tree tops and the snow on the house.  

I worked on my title last and I probably should've done it first because my blade was not cutting the detail of these letters real well.  So what happens when you need a new blade and can't get it in time to finish what you're working on?  You print & cut...Here's what I did for my title, and you can do this for any SVG file.  I googled the RGB (red,green,blue) codes that would match my paper that I was using elsewhere on my layout and changed the coloring of the words.  Once I had that done I placed them back where I wanted them on the white background and then printed the title in my printer and cut it out with my Cameo. 

I have found this to be a good technique to use when you have a file with a LOT of layers and you are putting it on a card, or anything for that matter - it gets VERY heavy and you can avoid that problem doing a print & cut.
