wednesday...Tip/Technique on making your own diecut paper (AWDML)

Hi everyone! Today I'm posting over at AWDML's blog a very cool tip/technique that you do not want to miss! I'll be showing you a very inexpensive way of making your own diecut papers!

cardstock: American Craft-(Chestnut, Lagoon)
patterned paper: American Crafts-Campy Trails (Buffalo Lake, Caribou Creek, Wolf Creek);
letter stickers: Basic Grey Micro Mono Alpha Stickers Olivia;
alphas: American Crafts Thicker Stickers Foam Giggles Blue;
ribbon: American Crafts-Baby Mockingbird;
other: mulberry paper, vellum paper

For this baby layout for my newborn nephew I used the Campy Trails Collection by American Crafts.  I loved this collection because not only it's great for outdoor pictures but they work wonderfully for masculine layout! Following the pattern in the Buffalo Lake pattern paper, I cut around it and made it into a die cut paper! It was supper easy to do and it gives the layout a touch of elegance with the die cut paper!

Here is a picture of the paper after I cut out the pattern on the edges:

Hope that this tip inspires you to look at the patterns on the papers you are working with and maybe make a diecut paper out of it!
