Recently some of my very kind friends had sent me some cricut cut-outs to play with. I must say a cricut is way beyond my scrapping budget for now. Most of the time, these cut-outs are being directly attached to the layout for embellishment.
In my latest CJ pages, I've used it to do some masking around the page. I've tried this technique using some magazine cut-outs but not with a cricut cut-out. Therefore I think this would be a great way to use your cut-outs in your future projects too. Try it! It's an awesome template to do your masking!
