Scrapping the Little Things

Today is Scrapping the Little Things on the My Creative Time blog. We were to create a scrapbook layout based on this sketch.

Here is my take on this layout sketch.
I made a couple of the embellishments for this layout out of different dies.  For the sun I used a circle die and then the small label from Vintage Labels.  Also, did you know that you can use a square die to make the "banner" look on large paper strips??  From the layout sketch, you can see the large red banner piece, well I just took the 4x4 Journal die and laid it on the paper piece then ran it through my die cut machine.  Take a look here how you can do this:

Step 1~ secure die with washi tape                                    Step 2 ~ flip paper and die over to cut

Step 3 ~ remove cut piece                                                                          Step 4 ~ nice cut banner!
