Die Cut Fun

Sometimes you just need a challenge to get your scrapping mojo going. I created this Mother's Day layout for a scrap-mart.com weekly sketch assignment. It was a one photo sketch (and I admit I usually turn sketches into multi-photo layouts) and I had one good photo from Mother's Day so I worked the sketch around the photo. Just made a couple of adjustments, added some fabulous die cuts and delish Basic Grey paper, and voila....

If you can read the journaling you will see that I received the big Sizzix Creative Center workstation cart as my gift and I LOVE it! It will hold all my cutting machines and it taller than a table so my back doesn't get sore. I'll post a pic of that soon.

I created the next layout as part of Laura's challenge on the official Quickutz blog to use the Cookie Cutter bride and goom dies for another purpose. A few accessories to the bride transformed her into Mary Poppins - I'm really happy with how she turned out...

I used tons of dies here: CC Bride, of course, 2 purses from the Flirt Spring Gift Set, font from the Flirt Gift Set; Hat from the original 2x2 doll die set; Revolution Umbrella; CC Monogram circle; and the Cloud Border to make her appear like she was floating up in the night sky.
Thanks for stopping by today!!

The Mary Poppins layout is GREAT. I too am a big fan of Sizzix (and my Big Shot die Cutter). I use it all the time.
