Your challenge is to use hand-cut shapes in a layout. Whether you cut hearts, stars, or even just circles, no die-cutting tools are allowed! Scissors only :).
Such a fun challenge! I didn't realize how often I was reaching for border punches. :)
For this layout I hand cut two layers of border scallops, as well as the hearts.
Jules:I had fun hand cutting the pennants underneath the photo - you can tell they're hand cut because they're all wonky - never mind!
This was a great challenge for me as my scissors are my best friend!! I used them all the time to cut things, I don't even own a cutting machine! Everything on my layout is hand cut!
I love my die cutting machines so this was definitely a challenge for me! I hand cut my title, which I made by first priting the letters from my computer, then using them as templates to cut around. I also hand cut the little mixed banner from a strip of scrap.
I hoard punches and use my die-cut machine on a daily basis, but I loved the freedom of sitting down with just a pair of scissors and my patterned paper. I kept it simple with circles (well, round-ish shapes - they're far from circles!).
We hope you'll join us! Your scissors will appreciate the attention :). Should you choose to play, you could win your choice of the Very Merry line, Vintage Poinsettia line, or a shop credit for $25.00 USD from Precocious Paper:
