Note Pads using Die Cut Scraps

Last week we talked about cutting shapes from our scraps using die cutting machines like the Big Shot and various dies.  Today I'll show a few covered notepads that made use of these die cuts. (Check my blog post for March 19 to see the how-to on these.) And remember, that anything that can be done on a notepad could also be done on a card!

This first die cut is from Spellbinders Fancy Tags II set.  Doesn't it serve as a lovely decorative mat for this focal?  The focal itself (and on the other notepads shown today) is a 3-D sticker purchased from the Dollar Store.  The pens, pencils, and the notepads themselves also came in sets from the Dollar Store.

Here are some more covered notepads using die-cut scraps as mats:

I DO love the way these decorative die cuts dress up a project!

Very nice, I love the look of die cuts, it is just that they are expensive to get a lot of them - slowly but surely is my motto on die cuts ! I think I'm up to about 6 sets with two of them being Christmas stuff.

Yes, I love nesting dies - especially the ones that are more lacy and elaborate like these are. They really dress up a project. I like the ones that do some embossing as well -- love the texture that adds. But you're right. They ARE expensive. I don't have very many sets myself yet for that same reason.
