Day 3 of Anthologie Inspiration -- Multi Purpose Embossed Die Cuts

Welcome to Day 3 of inspiration for Anthologie, the newest line from We R Memory Keepers. If you missed the last few posts, don't miss out! Visit day 1 for a LO idea and day 2 for a beautiful card. 

Today we're showing off the new product - Large Embossed Die Cuts. The die cuts can be used as a whole. Or punch out the middle sentiment, and use them independently. Scroll down to see the 3 fun ways to use this one product in projects. 
A Day To Remember Embossed Die Cut

Use the outside frame alone. Insert a picture, journaling, or patterned paper into the frame for endless uses. Cut off the ends of the tag, as shown in this card idea, for even more variation. 

Punch out the sentiment in the middle of the tag, and add it as an embellishment on cards or pages. This scrapbook LO uses the inside of the die cut to add some jounaling.

Don't forget the large embossed tags work great just the way they are! For this scrapbook page, fabric buttons were added as an embellishment. Insert ribbons, eyelets, or brads too!

Be You (tiful) Embossed Die Cut

Project ideas from today's post came from We R Memory Keepers project gallery. Visit their page to see even more inspiration using the Anthologie collection.
