Challenge #13 ~ By Hand

One of things I find most compelling on a page is when someone cuts out some elements and adds it to their pages. There are so many beautiful patterned papers out there right now that literally shout at you to cut it up.

Here is a page I did where I cut out some lovely flowers from some Bo Bunny papers and adhered them on the page with some chipboard flowers:

Here is another sample where I cut out various elements from the We R Memory Keepers Nonsense paper:

**Use pop up dots to make your element really POP off the page! I love to do this.

I would like to see you cut out something from your patterned paper and add it to your layout or card. You will earn one ballot for this month's Blog Prize Draw of $50.00 worth of scrappy goodies. Do you love Heidi Swapp?? I'll post a picture later tonight!

Please email your creation to me at or provide a link below.

Due Date: January 31st
Draw Date: February 1st
Happy Scrapping!
