Robyn says, "I love my Silhouette die cutting machine! When American Crafts started adding their designs to the store, I was in heaven! For this layout, I die cut the large butterfly twice and the small banner in the bottom right hand corner. I love how they add that perfect little detail to the finished layout. For the title, I took the chipboard Thickers letters and sprayed them with brown mist to change the color. Such fun techniques to throw in together!"

Jennifer says, "I love creating scenes on my layouts so I used the fence Silhouette American Crafts die cut shape and used the 'Tent' clear stamp to give each of the fence posts a woodgrain texture. I then cut the triangles from the Dear Lizzy Banner shape and attached them to the fence with white twine. To create the card, I used the negative part of the die cut and layered patterned paper beneath the petals, the leaves, and the stem. You can use this technique with embossing powder, markers, or cardstock to create an entirely new look."

Melanie says, "Since doilies are hot right now, and AC has a few really nice ones for Silhouette, I decided to try one out on a card. I have to say, this machine fascinates me! I was pleasantly surprised to see that the intricate shape was perfectly cut and detailed with the cardstock, even though I re-sized the doily considerably smaller to fit my card. This card was really fast to put together - I just adhered the doily onto my round card (also cut with the Silhouette), added the punched scalloped circle and 'Detail' sentiment to the middle, and finished it off with the subtitle letter stickers and a ribbon."
If you don't have a Silhouette already, I bet you're dying to get one now! Have a great weekend everybody and see you again right here on Monday!
