SOUS Die Cut Reveal Day.  This week the challenge was STARS.   And this week I again was able to scrap some way overdue photos.  So glad these were in my pile for this challenge.  Not sure that I would have thought of it otherwise so it was indeed fate.
As you can see I am still into my six by six obsession as of late.  I found that I really like the mix of pattern used for back grounds and then used again as layers in my embellishments.!  I mean come on gals, how can we purchase an entire paper collection with out breaking the bank :)  who does not love that ?    For this layout I turned to my Cricut Cartridge Superman for the comic strip stars, and also used a Martha Stewart border punch of stars.

These two boys have grown so much since this photo.  and grown so fast.  ** sigh.  I just cherish the memories made.

Handy Cards

Happy Friday Friends.   Today is reveal day for the SOUS Die Cut team.  We were challenged to use a Die cut Gate.   I created several cards to keep in my stack of go to cards when I need em'.  
I love that these can be used as sympathy, encouragement, or for a thinking of you.   For the Gate I turned to Cricut Cartridge Picturesque, and for the Bird - Artiste.   The tulips are from a Cricut Lite - Botanicals.   I also embossed the gate giving it a woodgrain feel.  And again, I am finding that the six by six paper pads are a fabulous go to.  Everything corridinates, and I dont feel like I am waisting paper.  Just love that.

Yes I know there are so many options out there for die cutting, but for now my Cricut and my investment still meet my needs.   I just know that I have not used all my cartridges to their fullest potential and will continue to do so until I cant any longer... or .. until I cave to the newest in electronic cutting. 

Be sure to check out the SOUS blog for inspiration where you will find that we all use different tools and seem to all create an everlasting memory.
