Happy Scrappy Friends: Die-cuts

Die-cuts, whether they are ready made or of the home made breed, are my favorite thing to create a focal point. Just layer a bunch together and you're basically done. Lucky me, die-cuts are our topic for the Happy Scrappy Friends blog hop. 

Instead of my usual pinks and yellows, I have a boy birthday card to show today. The die-cuts I chose are a mix of bought one's from Crate Paper and the vellum stars I die-cut myself with nesting Studio Calico dies. Also, how cute is that soft blue and red background paper? An oldie but goodie from October Afternoon. 

Now, since our blog hop group currently meets IRL for the first time this weekend in lovely Hamburg, I hope you don't mind me sending you right to Daphne's blog while we explore the city :)

Also, don't forget to stop by the challenge blog for a chance to be our guest and win a prize. Have a nice Sunday, all!
