Die Cuts R Us this week!

Thanks to everyone who played along with our challenge last week and shared their favorite color combo! This week, we want to see how you use die cuts. With the introduction of the new Cricut package, this should be a lot of fun! Don't have the Cricut software from CTMH? That's ok - any die cuts will qualify as long as you include CTMH products in your project.

Let's start the showcase of die cut projects with our Guest DT, Jane:

Gorgeous, Jane! Be sure to pop by her blog to see more photos of this crazy cute project!

And now for the rest of the team:







Beautiful artwork, ladies! Now it's your turn - let's see what you are inspired to create using die cuts. Be sure to post your finished project to your blog or other public online gallery (doesn't need a password to access) and be sure to add the link to your blog post page, not your blog home page. Have a creative week, everyone!

Just left a link to my blog. Created three cards for a workshop, and all three use images cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge.

Oh, I am so looking forward to getting the AP Cricut cartridge! Thanks for the challenge to use die cuts this week. I don't get my stuff like that out often enough.

This is my first time posting here, although I have lurked for a while now. :-) Loved the challenge to use the die cuts. I'm having so much fun with my little Cricut and the new cartridge! I hadn't done much with dies for a long time until they came out with this.

Yet another vote for the Art Philosophy Cartridge!

What a great excuse to play with my new Cricut!

I love that there's almost too many images on the Art Philosophy cartridge - I can't possibly make everything I think of as I page through the booklet!
