31 Days of Scrapbooking Questions - ANSWERED! http://www.layoutaday.com

We have the ability to trim our photos to any shape our hearts desire — but when do we choose circles, hearts, or stars over plain squares and rectangles? I almost always use rectangles and squares, and in this video I share three reasons why.

    Lain,
    I use Spellbinder dies to cut my photos. I get perfect circles, fancy squares, or any other shape I want. And I can cut them right in my Big Shot Pro.
    I have the perfectionist thing like you, I think you’ll be thrilled with how beautiful and easy it is!

  • LainEhmann

    Great idea! Do you use washi or something to hold it down?

  • Sondra Hardy

    Exactly! I use very small pieces of washi to hold the die to the picture so it doesn’t shift when I cut. The washi comes off much cleaner than regular tape, so it doesn’t leave sticky on the picture or my die.
    I’ve even used a few of the lacey-edged dies on pictures, and it works beautifully!

    Lain you are so darn cool. I love how you always encourage us to do what we love to do!

    You are positive and inspiring. Loving the 31 Days :-) Thanks for the great videos.
