Technique: using diecuts to add interest!

Ok, if you know me, you know that i tend to be a scrappy "over-doer." I don't like simple layouts. (at least not when I make them, i like other's simple layouts!!) I don't like simple sketches, i like ELABORATE! Sometimes that's fine, but sometimes you just want to make a few layouts quickly! One of my new favorites for being able to make quickie layouts that are interesting is using die cuts. ESPECIALLY the new glittery Crate paper diecuts you will find in the shop http://stores.scrappersxchangetheshop.com/-strse-***JUST-IN/Categories.bok
I just linked to the new items since there's so many of them to explore, but check these out!! I hope to buy the other lines as soon as possible. Right now i have Lemongrass. here's a couple of examples of simple layouts made interesting with die cuts. Click on the pictures to see them bigger :-)
