Welcome to the November class die cutters!

This month I am super excited to share my latest favorite die cutting technique: creating faux chipboard titles and accents.

It's super easy to do and you can do it with any electronic or manual die cutter you own.

Click here for class photos, pdf handout and the class video.

CHALLENGE: Use your die cutting machine to create a dimensional title and/or accent(s) on a scrapbook layout, card or home decor project. Upload your project to the Two Peas gallery, make sure to check the box next to this class when you do, and you will automatically be entered in a drawing to win a prize from Two Peas! Please note in the comments section what you die cut (this makes it easier for others to learn from your examples)! Thank you!

Upload your project to the 2peas gallery by December 4, 2010 to be entered to win a Gift Certificate from 2peas. I can't wait to see what you create.

If you have any questions or want to link us up to your project(s) in the gallery please post on this thread.

Happy November!

I love that you slowed it down to show more of your process!

Great project, I need to do this technique more often.

Great technique! Wanted to add something to this class but it isn't appearing under the challenges when adding a new project to the gallery.

I'm sorry for the trouble - I've arranged for the checkbox to be added. Something went a little wonky here, but we're getting it fixed!

Challenge still wasn't listed upon upload so I am posting it here! I love this one Nichol! It's an awesome technique and one I would have never thought of on my own! I will be using this a LOT!
