glitz design: what a wonderful world


this week at glitz design is all about die cuts.  i love using my silhouette to add backgrounds to my projects, as well as pops of embellishments.  

when i started putting this page together for glitz, i originally started in a completely opposite direction and was going to create a grid using frames on my page.  but my silhouette started acting funny and pretty much just tore up my paper.  i didn't feel like dealing with it, so i turned it off and pulled out my bowl of die cuts that i have sitting in my craft room.  

as i was rummaging through the bowl, i found a few of these die cut words, which are from a studio calico class last year.  then i decided i wanted to use them ALL on my page.  i tried a couple different ways to lay them out, but in the end i settled on a circle of words.  i liked how the words looked in a circle, but the white-on-white made it difficult to discern the words completely.  so i pulled out my mists and got messy creating a circle shape on my white card stock.  

i love the way it turned out, and even my hubby said it was his favorite (i love that he actually pays attention and comments....and that he doesn't think i'm crazy for my paper obsession).
