Be Creative week day 3
So I hope you're getting busy and creative with your week so far.
Today's share is an altered project using paper packs and your die cut machine. We all have these. One time or another, we all have been suckered to buying stacks or paper packs. There's nothing wrong with them but sometimes we buy them faster than we can use 'em up.
And then there's the die cut machines- Cricut, Cuttlebug, Silhouette, Pazzles, Slice whatever you have, bust them out today and make something pretty with it.
I love this idea cause (a) Paper packs are all coordinated. There's no more battle and time consumed thinking if they're all going to go well together and (b) die cut machines make projects easier and faster. They do the cutting for you and, more than not, better than if we cut it out ourselves.
So what are you waiting for? make something creative TODAY !
Here's my sample:
Butterfly mobile featuring Chic Bebe line from GCD Studios with butterflies cut from the Home decor Cricut cartridge.
this is my version of a baby mobile. I know it's not exactly round or big but I like it! I thought the use of the small hanger was also a cute touch to emphasize the theme. Oh and the scroll foundation for the title was also cut from the Cricut with the same cartridge.
Aren't these butterflies pretty?
Added a chipboard shape on the bottom for a final touch.
Hope you'll create today.
Till next time,
