Hello everyone! Can one really be addicted to die-cutting? Well I am! I love die-cutting ; whether it’s manual die-cutting with my Cuttlebug or with my Cameo! I can just go on and on and have all these diecuts lying around; most of the times I die-cuting just for fun!
Honestly, I am super loving my Cameo – and I have to thank all those kind people who made tutorials on how to use the Cameo because I learn new things all the time and it works wonderfully! The noisy Cameo cutting is music to my ears!
Anyways, let me get to my scrapbook layout – I won several sheets of Bazzill bling cardstock on their Instagram giveaway a while back. They were the prettiest cardstock; it’s so shimmery, so pretty and super thick!
I took my favorite color – PINK – and I went ahead and diecut with it with my Cameo without really knowing what to do with it. I diecut the pretty flower background; a free cut file from Hip Kit Club (March Download -designed by Ashley Horton) They have free cut files every month available for non-kit subscribers.
I created this layout with the die-cut flowers background. I cut the flowers apart instead of using the full sheet. I wished you could see the beautiful shimmer from the cardstock, but it was hard to capture on photograph.
I created my title with my own fonts with my Cameo also; I am loving that since I can make up whatever title I want without running out of stickers. I cut them with cardstock first, usually 3 times and layered them up to get a more raised effect like the dimension of chipboard stickers. Then I cut the patterned paper I like as the top layer.
I splattered the page with some DIY gelatos splatters and added the paper layers for my photo. I just added a few small bits of embellishment where the flowers were.

Then I had the “negative” of the cardstock – the leftover pink frame after I diecut the flowers background. I couldn’t throw it away or cut up for scraps because it’s PINK and so shiny. I cut another flower background out of white cardstock and made another layout with it. See – nothing gets to waste; I got another pretty layout out of it!
I love this layout a lot- I think it’s important to love what you make- makes one happy! I backed the negative diecut, the “frame” with pink vellum and adhered a patterned paper with words. I did cut my white flowers background a little bit smaller. I put my photo in the centre of the layout and embellished around it with some diecut hearts and stickers. I used the same diecut technique with my title again.

This is definitely one of my favorite layouts – and to think the starting point of this layout was because I didn’t want to throw away the negative diecut of the pink cardstock.
Hope you will try creating layouts with using negatives of die cut as a starting point!:) Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
