Pop Star Layout as seen in The Chirp!

Pop Star Layout

Ok, so here is what you have been waiting for! The .cut file for the Pop Star Layout that was made for The Chirp! This is a relatively simple layout to create. I have labeled all the .cut file tabs for you to be able to recreate this just like I made it. The only difference is you will not be able to use the American Crafts Glitter Chipboard until it is released in stores!

To create the Pop Star Layout, You will need the Cricut Design Studio, Cricut Expression, Hannah Montana Cricut Cartridge, Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge, the Regular Blade Housing, the Deep cut Blade Housing,

You will need a 12x12 sheet of Black cardstock for your base.

I used Prism Cardstock because that is what I put my hands on first!

Cut a 12x12 Sheet of the American Crafts Purple Cardstock down to 11.75 x 11.75 and center it on the black.

Cut a 12x12 sheet of American Crafts Purple Foil down to 11.5 x 11.5 and center it on the purple cardstock.

Layout Look - DO NOT CUT!!! Page
You will then follow the .cut file tabs using the correct cardstock/Chipboard colors to cut the layers out. Once you have the layers cut out, you will follow the picture and assemble the layout!

NOTES!
If you purchase the American Crafts Glitter Chipboard, you must use the Deep Cut Blade to cut it. I tried with the regular blade houseing and all it did was barely score the chipboard! You will also need to set the multi cut up for 2 times when you are cutting the Glitter Chipboard layers.
I recommend cutting all the cardstock layers first and then cutting the Glitter Chipboard layers and be ready to your sacrifice you cutting mat though!
Also if you are using a 12x24 mat be sure to lay an extra 12x12 sheet of cardstock next to the Glitter Chipboard so you don't get Glitter all over your mat!

    I just wanted to clarify. I wa using a soon to be released product that is Glitter Chipboard. Not cardstock. There is no way it would cut cleanly with only one pass of the deep cut blade. So if you purchase this product, be sure to follow my instructions in the post.
