Die Cut Challenge

This month's challenge over at Scrappy Frog's is to use die cuts - how easy is that?!  Uou can make any project you want, so I chose to catch up on my scrapping a little and made a 2 page layout.

I used my Cricut Expression along with the Art Philosophy cartridge to create my cuts.  Using the Gypsy (or you could use CCR or Design Studio), I welded two borders to the right length, then I used the same border and welded two, top & bottom, to a rectangle to create my journaling box.

 The title is also cut from the same cartridge, but I hand cut the floral images.  They were stamped, cut out, and rolled, popped up, etc. for dimension.  (You can see how to make the rose in my previous post here.)  Then I added embellishments to the centers for more dimension & interest.

All of my supplies for this one are from Close To My Heart:
  • Pemberly Workshop on the Go (includes the embellishments)
  • Card Word Puzzle stamp set
  • Outdoor Denim stamp pad
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Pacifica cardstock
  • micro-tip scissors
  • 3-D Foam Adhesive Tape
Thanks for checking me out today! Be sure to stop over at Scrappy Frog's Challenge Blog and take a few minutes to join the challenge.
