Using Just The Die Cut Frames

One great way to get your scrapbook supplies to stretch is by purchasing "Die Cuts with Matching Frames". You don't have to use them together that's the fun of it. These two pages were put together by using up "frames" that were not used when their die cuts were. 
Our website No Ugly Die Cuts carries 117 different
"Die Cuts with Matching Frames"
spread throughout our 21 categories.
"We are dedicated to keeping scrapbooking
simple and inexpensive!"

Why Do We Scrapbook?

We scrapbook to safeguard our memories. What's going to happen when we are gone? What will our children remember about us? How about your grandchildren and great-grandchildren? In order for your significant moments to live on forever, it is very important to organize them.

Getting all your photographs into the same area is vital. Once you have them all together it will be easier to sit down and get to work. You took your pictures for a reason - now let your posterity know why.

Keeping your photographs safe is essential. Make sure you use only acid-free and lignin free products when scrapbooking your photos.

Another reason we scrapbook is to have fun! Scrapbooking can be simple or very complicated. There is so much available to help you. One very easy, inexpensive and cute way to scrapbook is to use die cuts. I have found that illustrated diecuts are a fantastic way to liven up scrapbook pages! Make scrapbooking fun - then have fun looking back on your memories!

You Can Embellish Your Die Cuts

Enhance die cuts by simply adding a "brad" or a stick on "gem".  Taking the time to "layer" a die cut with paper is another way to embellish.  Below are a few ways we've done this.

4th of July Cut-Outs Turn into Die Cuts Using Your Scissors

Cut Outs are a great value for their price.  All it takes is a little effort on your  part and a good pair of scissors. (Just a silly note - My children love to pull faces anytime my camera comes out!  In fact my 8 year old crosses his eyes every time I take his picture!)

Fun with Summer Die Cuts

Here is a link to the die cuts we used
 when we created these two matching pages.
We cut the 'ball' off of the foot of the 'pool boy'
 so that it would work with our pictures.
