The layout is from Taylor's website, one of her sketch challenges from the beginning of December.
The main white oval that I stamped the pine tree on, was cut out from my oval nestabilities. I didn't have the next biggest size for the chocolate chip layer underneath it. So, I glued the white on top of some chocolate chip, took a deep breath, and FREE HAND cut around it. I tried to stay about a quarter of an inch from the edge of the white. You can definitely tell it is free hand but maybe it lends itself to that vintage look?
I remember 'trimming' my daughter's hair about 10 years ago. It was supposed to be a quick trim. By when I stepped back, the right side was quite a bit longer than the left. I picked the scissors back up and re trimmed the right, only this time, it ended up quite a bit shorter than the left! By the end of the hair cut, about 5 inches of her hair was gone. Same story with the paper ovals.
