Don’t forget about using your cutting dies to create fabulous scrapbook pages! Every piece of the Paper Artist™ Cake, Candle and Flower Cutting Dies was used to create this fun page made by yours truly! It was really fun using the negative space from the cutting die to hold my title, and the Chalkboard double-sided paper pack adds a subtle feminine touch! Try stretching you creativity by creating an entire page with just one cutting die!
