Layout Challenge- 12th June

This weeks layout challenge is to Use up some of your die cuts. You can use ready made die cuts or cut your own with a cutting machine.
I'm sure most of us have an old packet of die cuts that are waited to be used or a die cutting machine that is gathering dust from lack of use, well now the time to use them!


This was quite a challenge to me as I don't usually use die cuts on my layouts, I don't really buy them and I don't even own a die cutting machine!! I had to dig out the couple of sheets of die cut shapes that I do own out, (one of the sheets came free in a kit!) and clustered them in the corners of my layout.


I do use my dies quite often still. More or often enough for masking purposes these days like how I've misted over my butterfly die cut on this LO.
I also decided this was the perfect opportunity to get out a couple of dies that haven't been used for a while. So I dusted off my large circle and the scalloped circle.

Tessa from the Project Team joined in this week:
This is one of the first pages I have created for my Summer Smash Book.  All of the accents are die-cuts except for the two original illustrations on the page (the flowers in the top left and the calendar in the bottom right).

We would love to see what you do with your die cuts so please link them up!
