I was extremely happy this week because I finally bought myself a die cutting machine!! My husband saw online that all die cutting machines and die cuts were 40% off last week at Joanne's. So since we live about 2 hours from the US, we got in the car last Friday (without the kids) and drove there. I bought so many goodies for so cheap it was so worth it. One of the dies I got was Tim Holtz Tattered florals which I loved but I have never been able to use. I'm really excited on how my flowers turned out. I used them on this layout out of the matching papers and I have another layout reveal with another type of flower with the same die.

I made this layout for the Prima BAP. I used their sketch and lots of Prima goodies including my all time favourite Canvas resist products which I sprayed with Aridondak green. I also used the Romantique line and  a couple of Martha Stewart punches to decorate them with. The chipboard is part of my daughter's board game. I loved the shape and it fit the layout perfectly. I painted it with Gesso and inked it with Distress dye. I used Say it with Crystals and different Prima flowers to decorate and at the top corner is a DA chippie!!

Thank you for visiting my blog
