When I use Design Studio I use George and the Basic Shapes for my photo and any Basic Shape, I normally do not cut them out like for the photo mats or accent papers. I did use it to cut out my circle shape.
The party was at Fort Snelling's Officer Club so I knew I wanted to use some red white and blue on my layout and the Stand and Salute Cartridge is perfect for this type of layout. For the Chickadee I cut him out once out of black, white and grey then cut my pieces and layered everything onto the black bird.
Then I added a few punched stars to the corner, the white ones are from the inside of the circle flag. I lost my first one and had to recut.
Thanks for stopping by.
