August 4 - Paige Evans A Scrapbooking page SHOULD always have a story and lots of journaling
I am so very excited to share this project with you, it was a lot fun to put together, I hope you like it as much as I do! The very first thing that I thought of when I saw Amanda’s cute Scribble Words die cuts was ‘Wouldn’t these make a great mini album!’ So that’s exactly what I did. :D I cut out each die cut from both sets and layered them over patterned paper. Here’s my step by step process of how I made my album.
1. I cut the die cuts from white card stock and then decided on my background colours, I laid the white die cut on the possible patterned papers to make sure there was enough contrast to read the white words.
To read the rest, come on over to Amanda Robinson Studio. Then don't forget to come back and show me what you made :D
There are so many pretty die cuts and printables out there, it's hard to even know where to start! Honestly, it can be a little overwhelming at times. Not to mention, that once I started using cut files and printables, I felt like I was doing the same thing over and over and after a while everything started looking the same and I decided I needed to liven things up. So I got creative and made a list of different ways to use both cut files and printables and here is what I came up with.
IDEAS FOR DIE CUTS
1. Make a shaker box with a 'hole' in the die cut. Glue a clear top to the back of the die cut (I used a bit of packaging), add foam adhesive all around the outside (with no space between so nothing can fall out) and with your die cut facing down put in sequins, beads or confetti. Then, add a piece of cardstock to the back to hold it all in. It's ready to go on your page!
