For this month's challenge I used the Die-namics Circle Stax 1 to create rings for my basket which I then decorated using the Die-namics Flower & Leaf Trio. At the top of my basket I added a bow using the Die-namics Beautiful Bows set.

You can find more details on my blog .

I used my Die-namics Circle STAX in a couple of different ways for this challenge. First, I used them to make a shaker element on a card, and second, to fashion a door hanger. I had a ton of fun with these projects--you can get the details on my blog.

I made two cards for this challenge. My first uses the Circle STAX 1 Die-Namics and Circle STAX 2 Die-Namics to create a background (this was SO fun!), and my second card uses them, along with Pure Innocence Love You With All My Heart , for a more traditional use...framing an image!

I decided to get scrappy with my Circle STAX 1 and 2...I layered, stacked and used the Circle STAX 1 and Circle STAX 2 to create open circle elements to add a playful feel to my page. All the details can be found on my blog.

I'm using the Circle STAX 1 and Circle STAX 2 Die-namics to follow a hot new crafty trend. I created a project framed with an embroidery hoop. There are more details and some tips to use the Die-namics to mask some shading at my blog.

I used Circle STAX Set 2 Die-namics to create 3D balloons. I have a little 3D circle tutorial for you as well - fun!

I use my Circle STAX Die-namics all the time, but I don't usually use them as the main focus of the card. This was a fun challenge. I created three simple cards using the Circle STAX Die-namics.

I used my Circle STAX to create a gift box from just a couple of die-cuts and a strip of MFT cardstock. I also made a matching peek-a-boo card. For the giftbox tutorial, please see my blog post .

I created two different cards, both using a combination of the Circle Stax 1 and 2 Die-namics, and several other design elements.

I ♥ circles!!! I used the Circle Stax Die-namics to create a window on my card and then I cut and sewed a bunch of smaller Circle Stax Die-namics together to create some fun trim for a few packages.
check out more details on my blog!

The circle STAX are one of my go-to Die-namics, but it was fun to use them in a way that isn't the norm for me I used up a bunch of patterned paper scraps to make two cards. Then I stitched a quick little garland out of the left overs to decorate a plain white gift bag.
