Challenge #9: Dies, Punches, Cut-outs, Oh My!

Hello Users! We are so excited for the challenge this week! Not only will it encourage you to use that stash, but it is our first official showcase with our shiny, new Design Team! We sure hope you play along!

And now, for the challenge!

Be sure to tell us in your post what you used!

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday June 24th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE009 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation. (Linking tips are at the bottom of the post!)

Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use It Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.

As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

Here is a little inspiration to get you started:

Dinah used a hanging sign die that she has had since last year. She was hoping to use it on a more girly layout, but I think it coordinates perfectly with the trains!

France used her coveted Tim Holtz mini gears mover and shaker! Normally she has an idea of what she is going to use something for when she buys it, but this sat unloved until now! We are so happy she "saved" it for us!!

Haven used a punch gifted to her by her Aunt Diane, who is currently undergoing chemo. Haven is going to help her complete her albums in return. So sweet!

Heather used this darling chipboard cut out frame! She, like many of us, purchased a premade kit and had this little treasure left over and in a forgotten drawer of goodies!

Jane used a forgotten Nestie die that was lost in a pile of papers! A pile of papers??! Say it is not so! I am sure none of us can relate to that problem!! :)

Nancy used a die gifted to her by her late mother. Her Mom always used the dies as a set, as they came attached, but Nancy recently realized they were really meant to be cut apart! Yay to new discoveries!

Siobhan used her SU lattice die that she 'had to have'. I guess it has not been sitting too long, but it is a shame it took this long to cut anything with it!

Sonya bought the ENTIRE Papertrey Friendship jar set when it came out. She has used other pieces, but never the ruffle! I think it adds the perfect touch!

We can't wait to see what you create! Now go Use It!!
