How to: Cut 12 "lucky" words out of various patterned papers using a metal die and manual die cut machine. Next, add watercolors to the background paper where you will be placing the words to make the words pop. I chose to use a lighter shade of the color of the cut out word. Once dry, adhere the words over the colored areas. Stich over, around, under, and over the words. Add a complimentary patterned paper to the bottom 1/4 of the page for your photo, title, and journaling. I used the metal die frame for my title's background. I also cut a heart and the word "LOVE" using the metal dies and used them as embellishments in the upper portion of the page. Add additional embellishments to bring the page together.
