You're, like, so totally awesome!

Last year I die cut a bunch of 1/2" circles for my son's first grade class to use in a project.  The scraps looked so mod and awesome, I couldn't throw them away.  I knew that someday they would be useful in a project.  Well, that time has come.  I thought the circle scraps would be perfect to use in the Die Cutting Challenge over in the Moxie Fab World.
Finished card size is 5 1/2"x4 1/4"
It just so happened that my scraps were in neon colors which made me think of only one thing: the 80s.  I cut and layered some of the scraps then went back in time and used word art in MS Word to create the graphics and sentiment.  I then randomly cut some other neon shapes and adhered them to the sentiment.  Isn't it totally radical?

And just for kicks, one of my favorite sing-out-loud 80s songs.  Reminds me of rollerskating parties in elementary school. :)

  2. Oh my word. I LOVE it!! The 80s colors are so fun (and so hip again--shriek!). The die cuts are really fabulous. Great video, too ;)

  3. This made my Valentine's Day! Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one who saves die cutting scraps. Sometimes they're inexplicably works of art on their own.
