I recently made really big ampersand with my cameo and I kept the negative part and knew I wanted to use it some how. I used the negative part as a stencil and added modeling clay to the background page. I love the dimension it gave to the page.
So here it is, a layout using the September kit from Studio Calico and my big modeling paste ampersand. My kit this month had an extra set of die cuts so I was really happy I was able to have two striped thought bubbles for this layout.
