Challenge #43 - Cut it Out

Welcome back for another Paper Girls challenge! Michele here, and my challenge to you is to Cut It Out! You can cut with cutting machines like Cricut or Silhouette, or cut with dies, and if you don't have either of those, I want to see some fussy cutting!

I used my new Cricut to cut out the flowers and sentiments on these tags:

(Temporarily removed for publishing)

Charity cut out her butterfly layers with a Kreaxions die, and then punched the corners of the top butterfly to make this beauty:

Becci used her Silhouette to create this cute coffee cup card. (I guess it could be any hot beverage, really!)

Jessica used a scalloped frame die to embellish this page of her mini album.
Be sure to visit her blog to see the rest of this adorable album!

Charissa fussy cut some Dear Lizzy patterned paper for the base of her embellishments on this layout.
 
Heather made these cute Christmas tags with her Cricut Very Merry Tags cartridge.
 
 Kristy used her Cricut to cut out the layers of a banner, then used the banner as a background on her gorgeous layout.

Deborah glued paper to her chipboard letters and then used her craft knife to cut the letters for this banner.


These ladies have certainly inspired me to get creative with my cutting. How about you?
You have until 11:59 MDT on November 16th to link up your project to be entered into this drawing.

Since the challenge is to Cut It Out, I've got a couple of dies to send to our lucky winner!

 And now......
