On this first layout, I used the Circles lace paper in red. What - you don't see red? That's because I inked it with brown distress ink and then sprayed it with gold Glimmer Mist. I also added the gold Glimmer Mist to the black Large Flourish Frame. Altering these cuts helped them match my layout. I also embellished the frame with some rhinestone bling to make it sparkle even more. Here's a closeup of the cuts:
These next projects show how I dissected a cut - the Flower Lace Paper. I got three projects out of just one sheet of this paper, with some left over to spare. Here are two of the projects: a card and a wall hanging that is displayed in my new craft room.
I simply cut around the flowers to give them a finished "edge."
Finally, this Halloween layout shows how I embellished a cut to give it my own personality. The background is the Halloween Lace Paper, to which I added some spooky googly eyes. I used one of the Halloween Die Cut Frames to frame my photo, which creates its own embellisment in the lower corner.
I hope this tips give you more ideas on how to use your cuts, and inspire to try out some of The Scrappy Shack's newest cuts!
