D is for Die Cutting

D is for Die Cutting (and Punching)

This month we picked this beautiful layout (below) by Lynn Biermann, her inspiring blog is called Pretty Paper Swirls. Please do take a look.

Here are a few words from Lynn:

"My name is Lynn Biermann & I live in a small town outside of St Louis in southwestern Illinois I love the Midwest & after traveling for 23 years as an Air Force family we are happy to have “settled“ ! I have been married for 32 years to the best guy in the world! I am lucky to fill my life with family & friends…they are my true inspiration!

I started scrapbooking in September 2007 & was instantly hooked! I love the idea of archiving a little bit of yesterday & today for those tomorrow! However, more than anything I found the wonderful people in the world wide scrapbooking community to be so welcoming to newcomers & so willing to share their talent! We are lucky to have each other!

I want to thank Lynn & everyone at Scrapology for the opportunity to be featured on their wonderful blog! I am humbled to a part of such a great group of artists!!"
