★ Cut, Mat, Create, - Heartfelt Creations

Its Heartfelt Creations Wednesday, and its also Brand New release Wednesday too.  Here is some information on this most awesome collection:
The dies create a grid that fits perfectly on a 12" page, allowing for limitless layout possibilities. Use with stamps and papers to create precisely matted cards or mini albums. The 4 die sets contain 27 individual dies. The 6 coordinating stamp sets also complement previous collections. The luxurious papers work hand in glove with both dies and stamps. Whether you are a paper crafting novice or a design diva, you will love the freedom, simplicity and versatility of this innovative, must have collection.

 *********************

When i first saw this line, i have to say,  I was excited about the thought of working with a "project life" idea.  I never quite figured myself to be a project life scrapper, the dies helped me embrace the PL idea.  so here is my first Cut Mat Create Project.


This collection, i have to say, really got me working out of my comfort zone and i love the results and those of you looking to fill more photos on a page, this set will really open your scrapbook to new ideas.

i love the way i was able to add smaller matted photos with the cut of a die and embellish my own favorite style.


you have likely seen these photos on a few layouts already, but they suited this line perfectly. and below is a close up of the Majestic Blooms.
