BUSY BEING HAPPY: Use a Full Die Cut Background
I wanted to use a full die cut background for this layout, but I was down to my last sheet of Haynes patterned paper, and it had already been cut. So I decided to do an 8.5×11 format and still work with the full die cut background. The Haynes patterned paper worked perfectly for this look, because I wanted a multi-colored patterned paper behind my White cardstock.
8 IS GREAT: Layer & Cluster Die Cuts
I used several different die cuts on this layout, including a tag, flowers and leaves, to layer and cluster behind my photo. I also wanted to add some different layers and dimension to my die cuts, so I mixed in a wood veneer, rub-ons and stickers.
