Dies R Us Challenge #169 ~ Anything Goes using any brand of die that DRU sells

  Hello Blogging Friends!!


Today is May 15th and that means it is time for a new challenge on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  The theme is always Anything Goes Using Any Brand of Die that Dies R Us sells.


Here is my creation for Challenge #169:


For this challenge I decided to make a scrapbook page rather than a card.




Ingredients:

Old Sizzix alphabet dies
Navy Blue shimmer paper
Blue patterned paper
Cinnamon paper

For this layout of one of my cats, Sonny, who is the troublemaker out of my 3, I used pictures of some of the funny places he has managed to get into!  I took the Blue patterned paper and attached that to a Creative Memories Natural page.  I took the three photos and cut them all the same size and mounted them onto the cinnamon paper and attached that to the middle of the page.  For the title I used an old Sizzix alphabet and cut out the letters in the Cinnamon paper and I placed them onto some Navy Blue Shimmer paper and I placed the title over and under the pictures.  Then I took the Impression Obsession Cat die and some more Cinnamon paper and some scrap paper to make the cat.  Once I put the cat altogether I attached him to the left hand corner of the page.  So now you see that you can also use your dies for scrapbooking too!

Don't forget to check our Sister Store in Canada with warehouses in USA & Canada called Didi Crafts.




I hope you will come and join in the fun at the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.  There's a new challenge theme offered on the 1st and 15th of each month and one lucky randomly drawn winner will receive a gift voucher prize to the Dies R Us Store.  For your convenience, all the important Dies R Us links are provided below.
