How to Make Die Cuts Work for your Project by Kristin Greenwood

Kristin Greenwood is up today with some tips for using the die cuts that are included our August Creative Kit:


This month in the Creative Kit there is a package of American Crafts die cuts.  As awesome as these die cuts were, they just were not going to work with the photos that I wanted to use!  So I needed to come up with a creative way to add them to my projects!

Since it was just the design that would not work, I decided to just flip them around and use the back side!  The shapes were perfect!
I had to trim some off the arrow here to get the shape I wanted!

I just adore the surf board on this layout!

I added some of the stickers from the kit on the road sign shape!

The arrow was perfect for an extra layer!

Here are the completed layouts!


You can see more of Kristin's beautiful work in our Design Team Gallery!

Here's the August Creative Kit:

We invite you to join us and experience the possibilities that our coordinated monthly kits offer. To purchase a kit, please visit our website, here.
