To Die For {fancy pants}

Today on the Fancy Pants blog I am sharing my work with die cutting — both pre-cut and also machine cut. 

And since I was using the Everyday Circus collection, I thought it only fitting to document the start of summer vacation. For those of you with little ones under foot again for the summer break, you know what I mean — these days can be a circus!

For this layout, I machine cut a large title that acts to anchor the three photo elements on the page. 

Both the "hello" and the "summer vacation" are welded words, meaning that they are connected in as many points as possible and don't require individual application of the letters. When using your dies for lettering, this is always helpful and a time saver.

I also used the pre-cut dies in the ephemera pack. These little die cut pieces are the perfect extra touch to the page. They add dimension and playfulness to the layout.

Thanks for stopping by here to see my layout. I had fun making this one and hope you also got some ideas for using your die cut machine for lettering as well as layering the ephemera in the Everyday Circus collection.
