Challenge 8: Diecuts


You own a diecut machine. You buy packaged diecuts. You buy journal spots. You have a membership to the LSS Diecutting Center. Put them all to use!

1. Create layouts, cards or projects using DIECUTS.

2. Upload your layouts, cards or projects that you created featuring DIECUTS to an online gallery or your blog (please link back to my blog to this challenge if you like).

3. Post a link to your layouts, cards or projects on this blog post using Mr Linky (it will show up at the bottom of this blog post) by Saturday May 1, 2010 by Midnight PST.

If you don't get your layout or project done in time, you can still do it. The goal is to get something done using the supplies you already have.

Each time you post a comment with a link to your project you will be entered to win so make sure you post each project or layout separately. The first prize is a $100 gift cert to my etsy shop Hydrangea Hippo, with more prizes to come! Here's a little more inspiration for you on the topic of DIECUTS:

Use packaged diecuts, like these word bubbles from My Little Shoebox:


Create your own custom diecuts on an electronic machine — I used my Quickutz Silhouette:


Diecuts from Crate Paper on a 12×12 sheet plus a Diecut Cardstock shape from Bazzill:


My Mind's Eye makes really cute diecuts as part of all their collections. Here's a large star from an old collection plus a K& Co diecut journal spot:

Show me what you got, your ideas for using DIECUTS. You don't have to use alot of DIECUTS on one page, just use them somewhere, even if it is just a journal spot. I'll let you slide and use punches if you don't have any diecuts or a diecut machine ;)

I hope you'll join me for this fun adventure. Here's to getting lots of layouts done, using our stash, and making room for new goodies!!

  1. I have a layout posted on my blog for another challenge, but I am going to try and post it on the Scrapbook.com general forum for your challenge.
