Hi everyone! I'd like to invite you all to join me in this challenge to use your die cutters / punches. I've got a cricut, a sizzix, and lots of punches, and I want to start using them more on my layouts and cards.

This challenge will be posted weekly on Sundays and the challenge will run through the following Saturday.

All you have to do is create a layout, card, or other project using at least one item made with your die cutter or a punch and then share your work here so we can all enjoy your artwork and be inspired to use our die cutters / punches too. Have fun and be sure and leave some praise for fellow players when you have a chance.

I created this one using a die from Papertry Ink (the inserts leftover from the actual die), a scallop punch from stampin up and Martha Stewart Butterfly punch.

Kelly - you do such pretty floral work on your cards and calendars. I am envious of those who can do such beautiful work as I have no clue how to do floral work.

Dictionary - I like the Hexagons and the coordinating papers look fantastic.

Finished this card tonight:



I know you can buy this Monster Mash character already made, however I wanted to paper piece her and that is exactly what I did and that is why she is just a little different from the original. This will be a Birthday card for a friend whose birthday is in October: Day of the Birth.

For Bosses Day this year we are doing a Mad Hatter's Tea and have to make a hat for ourselves and one attorney (that we drew names for) and it is supposed to be made out of a paperbag.

I made Snoopy's doghouse since I am a Snoopy fan (thanks to my DH's suggestion):
