Not for nothing, there is a reason why I call my blog Just The Paper. Its all of the beautiful patterned paper that made me fall in love with scrapbooking. But once you get pulled into this subworld of adhesive, stickers and glitter you glom on to all the other wonders like Stamping and Die Cutting. If you are reading this blog, then you likely know all the different ways (manual and electronic) you can make wonderful scrapbook embellishments with die cutting. Personally, I am totally bicurious when it comes to die cutting. Although I have a Silhouette and a Cricut, I also still have tons of old Quickutz, Lifestyle now We R Memory Keepers, Spellbinders, Impression Obsession, Memory Box, Papertrey Ink and Simon Says Stamp dies and I don’t seem to be slowing down in my acquisitions (hoarding, collecting depending on whose asking).
So with all the above said, I wanted to dedicate a Theme on the blog to my love of die cutting with all of the paper wonders that scrapbooking has to offer. First up for this Manic Diecut Monday is this layout:
Die Cut Details: What initially inspired the layout was the Dear Lizzy patterned paper with the cameras. I thought that a little die cutting would just turn up the fabulous of this patterned paper. This week I concentrated on Silhouette diecuts but stay tuned for more.
Thank you for stopping by. More to come. Celia.
