Happy Tuesday! The other day I found some awesome (groovy?) patterned paper at Marshalls for dirty cheap and I grabbed it up. It's the Hippie Chic stack from DCWV. I loved all the pattern papers in the stack but they seemed way too busy to use as a whole...
|Pretty paper isn't it?!|
So out comes the exacto/cutting knife and a cutting mat! I watched tennis and cut the paper to pieces. It was actually kind of addicting, and many shapes I could have cut easily with fine scissors but the exacto knife was way more fun...

So rather than a step-by-step How To Tuesday, I just wanted to give you this great and easy idea to make your own die cuts. I made this Thinking of You card with the hippie chic cut outs
It actually ended up being one of my favorite cards I have ever made!
Happy cutting! Let me know if you get addicted to it, too... and advice on the car issue above Thanks!
