Fun with Farm Friends!

The new theme for the Cut It Up challenge is Farm Friends!  Create any type of project, but don't forget your die cuts!!   

These adorable dies are from ScrappyDew!  I have combined the horse and rider from Cowboy Kids 2012 through the vault membership and the barn from FarmPalz.  The Vault Membership is a great deal since you can download so many great dies!  If you enjoy dies, you really need to check out this opportunity!  

This little sweetie and her steed are from the Cowboy Kids.  There are several layers here and makes for a very substantial cut! 

I have chosen to use several different papers, a lace and a gem to embellish.  The sparkle you can see is actually in the paper.

 The barn below is simply cut and inked.  I did add the star and some black sparkle paint to the fence boards. 

I rounded out the layout with some ribbons, lace, and stamping!

Now, for some added fun; why don't you check out this video launching my September 5 Minute Fridays!  This week I'm featuring a video on "Die Cut Makeovers"!  This will give you a quick idea how I enjoy turning plain dies into textured/inked/interesting die cuts for cards, layouts, bags, and other projects!
