Scrap 365 October Sketch – In Cape Town Layout & Free Cut File!

It’s time for the Scrap 365 October Sketch Challenge!

This month I have a Free Cut File of a Sketchy Circle to share with you, so keep reading – there’s a PNG version too if you want to print it!

Here’s the new sketch:

This month is sponsored by 7 Gypsies!

7 Gypsies

You can enter to win a fabulous prize from them. They also sent some goodies out to us lucky team members. I was able to play with the Serengeti collection, which is Africa themed. I’ve never been to Africa but my sister spent a few months there at the start of the year, and I spent those few months gasping at her beautiful photos as she posted them on Facebook! So I asked her if I could use one of them for this page…

That’s my little sister visiting Table Mountain!

See the circles on the background? That’s the Free Cut File I designed. I’d used gold embossing powder to make circles last month, so I didn’t want to draw some again, and I thought about using thread to make circles but decided they wouldn’t be bold enough, so I made a cut file to use on my Cricut Explore instead.

If you want this file too (for personal use only please) you can download it as an SVG here, or as a PNG here.

They look great cut from the lighter text paper, positioned on the dark background – the contrast shows them up nicely so they don’t get lost within all the embellishments:

I used some gold mist to stain the vintage photo at the bottom left, and then inked the edges of it brown, so the colours blended with the page:

I also delved into my stash for an assortment of bits & pieces to scatter around the page!

I did record a video for this page, but I haven’t managed to finish editing it yet – as soon as I do I’ll let you know!

That’s it from me today. Don’t forget to check out the Scrap 365 blog for more inspiration, there’s lots of amazing pages from the rest of the DT.

I’ll see you again soon,

  1. Those circles look great fun to use. Thank you for sharing them. I will probably fussy cut them. I do have a CraftRobo but i have no idea if SVG files are suitable and if so, how to do that. I have had the machine for several years after having saved up for it, but i never really learnt how to use it. The instructions aren’t very clear. I get angry at myself because it cost a lot of money…. One day I have to sit down and try again! In the meantime I enjoy reading your blog.
