Dear Lizzy: Die Cutting in Style

Q: How can I use my die-cutting machine for trendy layouts, not cutesy or dated pages?
Deb Maddow, Rochester, NY

A: To create a trendy look, use your dies to make your own shaped journaling spots or your own unique lace paper for your next project. I used circle and butterfly dies on the page here to create my journaling spots.

Q: I'm looking for a swirl that I can cut and paste—maybe a stencil or die cut. Please help.
Nahomi Thomas, Orlando, FL

A: Nahomi, I, too, love the look that swirls and flourishes add to my projects. Look no further! Dies come in so many swirl shapes. I used one of my favorites (the Decorative Accent w/Flower die from Sizzix) on this page. I also like the swirl shape for my Cricut machine from the Home Accents Cricut Solutions cartridge.
