The week 5 challenge for Scraptivity's Scrap Away Your Winter Blues contest was to create a layout using a creative cutting technique with your patterned papers.
This is the layout I came up with. Everything on the page (other than the light blue damask background) was hand cut and arranged on the page. I even trimmed some KI lace paper to make it look like a strip of lace. I'm quite pleased at the overall mid Eastern/princess-y look of the layout.
Supplies: Papers are Daisy D's girlfriend collection and KI lace paper, lots of Stickles, chipboard alphabet from the dollar store, stickers are Daisy D's, chipboard crown is TH Grungeboard, rhinestones
