Customizing Paradise with Die Cuts!

I had a play date with my friend Dana Tatar and took advantage of her collection of Couture Creations dies to create this home dec item.  I love playing with dies and I love using photo trays to put my memories up on the wall to enjoy everyday!

In the first opening, I embossed the background cardstock and then sanded it to reveal the detail.  The doily and tickets are die cuts.  I have a fascination with tickets and had fun customizing these with stamps.
Here's a closer look at the rest of the details - and you can enlarge any image just by clicking on it!

I love using dies to create custom embellishments for my projects!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play today!  Susie
