It's all in what you do with the pieces.....

Our challenge today was to use some type of die cuts
on your project either by cutting with sizzix or cutting 
it out with a Cricut or silouette machine.  Each of our 
talented ladies is giving you lots of fun ways to create
the little extras that you need for a project without having
to buy them..  You can create them yourself with just
a little inspiration from the things in the photos and the
things around you in your life.....

Design Notes: Use liquid pearls to create a textural border around page

It's all about a little girl in pink shoes by Petra Offrell
The title says: Happiness lives in a pair of PINK shoes
 - when you are little.

I punched zillions of square pieces of LS007 and then
 I randomly cut each piece in 2. Then the puzzling began
 to get a frame around the photo. I used one of the
 fabulous glittery cardstocks as a base to make the mosaic more fancy *LOL*.

My Rockin Butterfly by Katarina Damm
I've used the Rockstar  6x6 paper pad to make this page, together with some of
the 14mm Round tool buttons from Epiphany Crafts, And I used the QK
butterfly as a mask on my page, and as a decoration.

Thinking of You by Nicole Wise

This was a super easy card to make.  It took a little time to cut all of the layers,
 but the end result was worth all of the effort!  First, I stamped three large 
and one small flower onto the glitter paper- one set for each color. 
 Then, I trimmed each down to a manageable size that I could work
 with easily.  Next, I grabbed my small, sharp scissors and camped out
 on my living room floor while watching a baseball game (Go Red Sox!)
 and cut the layers out.  I layered the flowers using Best Creation 
Foam Tape and voila!  A bright, clean simple card!

Products Used:  BGP208, BGP211, BGP213, BGP216, BGP220,

BFF by Jona Panessa
 I used tim holtz birdcage and sizzix flower dies.  I cut cardboard first
 and covered them with rockstar paper for the birdcage 
and the gold glitter paper for the wing and BGP224 for the body of the bird.

I loved the Rock star collection because with the addition of blue, 
 it shouted summer already when in fact the collection is grungy.

"Family" by Julie Walton

 to make the sun you cut out an image with our 
glitter papers and make loops of ribbon for underneath
and make an epoxy circle out of matching paper with
an Epiphany Craft Tool maker for the center.

 Julie cut the tree and all the leaves with 
her cricut.  Our glitter papers cut perfect
with a deep cut blade or use the multi cut
setting on max with a regular blade for a 
clean and easy way to cut lots of cute things!!

We hope you feel inspired to create some really fun
things for you projects this weekend and be sure and
